Machinists are professionals in the manufacturing industry that alter metal or wood parts using tools. This profession includes people who are Tool and Die Makers, Mold Makers, Patternmakers and Drill Operators. To be successful in this profession you need a good understanding of metal and/or wood, you need to know how to use the tools of the trade and you need to be able to read schematics.
Tool and Die Makers
Tool and die makers are the first professionals that can be classified as a machinist. Their primary responsibility is to make tools, dies and molds for others to use. When designing your Tool and Die Maker business card, you will want to make sure that you select a background graphic that makes sense for your job. For example, if you primarily make tools then you will want to select a graphic that includes one or more tools. In addition to a great machinist themed graphic, you will want to include your name, job title, union affiliation, company information and contact information.
Mold Makers are responsible for the creating molds that are used to mass produce a variety of items. They can create injection molds or form molds. If you are a Mold Maker then you too will want to use a machinist themed business card design template, however, when you browse through our image library, you will want to look for a graphic that either depicts the types of items produced by your molds or a graphic that features a mold.
As the job title suggests, Patternmakers make patterns. However, unlike Patternmakers in the clothing industry who use paper, machinists use metal for their patterns. If you are a Patternmaker then your business card will need to use a graphic that shows what you do. You can select a drafting themed graphic or a machinist themed graphic. You can also upload your own graphic, perhaps of a pattern that you have designed, to our system and then use our software to finish the design of your business card.
While many machinists work with cutting tools, there are also several jobs in this field that operate drills to shape metal and wood. If you are a drill operator then your business card will need to include a graphic of a drill. You can either select one of our drill themed graphics or you can upload your own line art graphic or photograph.
