What does an Electromechanical Equipment Assembler do?
Assemble or modify electromechanical equipment or devices, such as servomechanisms, gyros, dynamometers, magnetic drums, tape drives, brakes, control linkage, actuators, and appliances.
- Inspect, test, and adjust completed units to ensure that units meet specifications, tolerances, and customer order requirements.
- Assemble parts or units, and position, align, and fasten units to assemblies, subassemblies, or frames, using hand tools and power tools.
- Position, align, and adjust parts for proper fit and assembly.
- Connect cables, tubes, and wiring, according to specifications.
- Attach name plates and mark identifying information on parts.
- Read blueprints and specifications to determine component parts and assembly sequences of electromechanical units.
- Disassemble units to replace parts or to crate them for shipping.
- Measure parts to determine tolerances, using precision measuring instruments such as micrometers, calipers, and verniers.
- Clean and lubricate parts and subassemblies, using grease paddles or oilcans.
- Drill, tap, ream, countersink, and spot-face bolt holes in parts, using drill presses and portable power drills.
- File, lap, and buff parts to fit, using hand and power tools.
- Pack or fold insulation between panels.
- Operate or tend automated assembling equipment, such as robotics and fixed automation equipment.
- Operate small cranes to transport or position large parts.
