What does a Coil Winder, Taper, and Finisher do?
Wind wire coils used in electrical components, such as resistors and transformers, and in electrical equipment and instruments, such as field cores, bobbins, armature cores, electrical motors, generators, and control equipment.
- Operate or tend wire-coiling machines to wind wire coils used in electrical components such as resistors and transformers, and in electrical equipment and instruments such as bobbins and generators.
- Review work orders and specifications to determine materials needed and types of parts to be processed.
- Cut, strip, and bend wire leads at ends of coils, using pliers and wire scrapers.
- Select and load materials such as workpieces, objects, and machine parts onto equipment used in coiling processes.
- Record production and operational data on specified forms.
- Attach, alter, and trim materials such as wire, insulation, and coils, using hand tools.
- Stop machines to remove completed components, using hand tools.
- Examine and test wired electrical components such as motors, armatures, and stators, using measuring devices, and record test results.
- Apply solutions or paints to wired electrical components, using hand tools, and bake components.
- Disassemble and assemble motors, and repair and maintain electrical components and machinery parts, using hand tools.
- Line slots with sheet insulation, and insert coils into slots.
