Industrial Mechanic (Millwright)

An Industrial Mechanic (Millwright) installs, maintains, troubleshoots, and repairs mechanical equipment and industrial machinery in production plants, factories, and industrial buildings. They are responsible for the safe and efficient operation of industrial equipment and machinery that they install.

The typical duties of a Millwright include, but not limited to, reading diagrams and schematic drawings to determine work procedures; operating rigging equipment to place heavy machinery and parts; cutting and assembling metal components using welding equipment; fabricating, modifying and overhauling equipment; troubleshoot hydraulic, pneumatic and programmable logic controls; perform preventive and operational maintenance using procedures such as vibration analysis; repair or replace defective parts when necessary.
