What does a fitter do?

In general terms, a fitter is an engineering specialist who installs, maintains and/or repairs machines, plant and equipment for a large variety of industries such as manufacturing, aeronautical, maritime, and mining, food processing and packaging industries. The fitter may work from engineering drawings and/or service manuals. When these are not available, the fitter must rely on his/her own knowledge of mechanical components and processes, to plan, schedule, diagnose and implement their own systems and mechanisms as required Without skilled fitters, these mechanical technology-based industries would grind to a halt.

What does a turner do?

A turner is an engineering specialist by makes parts and fits parts to machinery by mainly use machines in machining workshops such as lathes, milling machines and grinders. And also operates cnc machines by use different hand tools and work with lots of types of metal such as brass, mild steel, stainless steel, bright blue bar and many more, they also operate different types of drilling machines. The turner work from complicated engineering drawings and/or manuals. Without skilled turners, these mechanical technology-based machining industries would grind to a halt.

What does a pipe fitter do?

Typically, pipefitters lay out piping systems for construction and installation projects, and also assemble and maintain complex piping systems and equipment. Types of systems that a pipefitter works on may include steam, condensation, water, drain lines, air, gas, chemical, hydraulic, lubrication, heating and refrigeration, and process piping. Pipefitters work in industrial, chemical, power, and wastewater treatment plants, as well as in refineries and in most commercial and residential buildings.

What does a millwright do?

Millwrights carry out maintenance work on production machines, electrically driven machines and electronic control gear. The work is both electrical and mechanical and involves dismantling, fault detection and repairing of parts, as well as the rebuilding, installation and maintenance of machinery.
Tracing faults is one of the millwright's most important tasks. In most cases the machine has to be dismantled before it is possible to determine where the fault lies. As it is often not possible to replace the defective component immediately, millwrights must be able to make temporary repairs, so that the machine can be used until the correct parts are available. A thorough knowledge of the manufacturing of machine components is essential.
Knowledge of fitting is also required, since the installation of new machinery is also part of this work. Another important task of millwrights is electrical installation. They should be able to dismantle electrical motors and test for faults, check wiring, as well as determine power consumption. This includes other functions such as coupling of cables.
Millwrights usually work in the production section of factories, but sometimes also on sites. The fact that their working conditions change continually prevents their work from becoming monotonous.
