Build, install, test, or maintain robotic equipment or related automated production systems.
Set up and operate a variety of machine tools to produce precision parts and instruments out of metal. Includes precision instrument makers who fabricate, modify, or repair mechanical instruments. May also fabricate and modify parts to make or repair machine tools or maintain industrial machines, applying knowledge of mechanics, mathematics, metal properties, layout, and machining procedures.
Have you ever wanted to work hands-on with cutting-edge machines? Electro-mechanical technicians work with some of the most advanced equipment available in the manufacturing industry. Electro-mechanical technicians combine a knowledge of mechanical technology with an understanding of electronic circuits. They test and maintain unmanned, automated, robotic, or electromechanical equipment, including unmanned submarines, aircraft, and related equipment used in oil drilling, deep ocean exploration, and hazardous waste removal. They read blueprints and diagrams to assemble parts or machines, and verify that specifications are met. They operate machines to make parts, repair and calibrate assemblies and robotic equipment, and conduct tests to assure the quality of operation. They also document test results for reports. Electro-mechanical technicians work in many industries, including energy, plastics, computer and communications equipment manufacturing, and aerospace. They often spend time both at production sites and in offices. Exposure to hazards from equipment and materials requires that these technicians follow safety procedures on a daily basis. Most work full time on regular shifts, though extra hours may be required for repairs to keep manufacturing operations running. Electro-mechanical technicians typically need either an associate’s degree or a certificate.
