Industrial Mechanic Millwright
Industrial mechanic millwrights maintain and repair stationary industrial machinery, mechanical equipment, and automated and robotic systems in industrial plants and factories.
Industrial mechanic millwrights are most often involved with installing, maintaining, repairing, and removing machinery in industrial plants and factories. They will plan and design, select, and install mechanical industrial systems to a high standard. This will include testing and fault-finding which will require a deep body of knowledge about the equipment they are working with. To be a successful millwright, one should possess the strength and stamina required to work with heavy equipment, good coordination, and manual dexterity, the ability to read and visualize blueprints, the ability to comprehend, analyse and troubleshoot mechanical systems and the ability to perform well in a team environment.
The increased adoption of sophisticated machinery, including the use of many computer-controlled machines in factories and manufacturing plants, will raise the demand for industrial mechanic millwrights in order to keep the machines functioning properly.
