What is the Difference Between Millwright and Heavy Duty Mechanic?
The many types of intricate machinery often scattered across an industrial site require workers to possess specialized knowledge and capabilities in order to perform installation, repair, and maintenance services. Millwrights carry out the assembly and setup tasks for these machines, while industrial machinery mechanics perform the repair and maintenance work required. At Axis Mechanical Group, Inc., we offer a wide array of millwright services to help you fulfill your project and operational requirements. Millwrights and Their Services Millwrights are exceptionally skilled professionals who provide installation, assembly, and dismantling of equipment and machinery when needed on construction sites and in factories and plants. These professionals work with managers and engineers to identify the optimal location for a machine installation. Millwrights also deliver machine parts to various locations using hoists, winches, cranes, forklifts, and other equipment. These professionals are needed for the assembly process of individual parts, possess a working knowledge of how they operate, and put together and dismantle them as required. Heavy Duty Machinery Mechanics and Their Services Industrial heavy-duty mechanics have the responsibility to keep machines and equipment operating properly. They perform this work by diagnosing issues and implementing solutions before they become larger problems that are more expensive. Machinery mechanics employee careful observation, reference technical manuals, and possess a keen understanding of equipment and machinery to pinpoint problems. Mechanics often must possess years of training and experience in order to effectively identify these issues. They are able to utilize computerized diagnostic systems and vibration analysis methods to help evaluate the nature and scope of problems in the field. After identifying an issue, industrial machinery mechanics may dismantle equipment in order to carry out repairs or replacements. These mechanics are expected to have particular range of knowledge, often in subject matter including electrical, electronics, computer programming for use in the repair of complex equipment. After the mechanic makes specific repairs, he or she may conduct testing to ensure the equipment is operating in an optimal manner. Preventative maintenance is one of the key responsibilities of industrial heavy-duty mechanics.
