Instrument fitters assemble and install precise instruments that measure, indicate, transmit, record and control. Instrument fitters may specialise as camera repairers, scale adjusters or surgical instrument makers. Experienced instrument fitters may work with scientists to design, manufacture or modify laboratory equipment.
Instrumentation tradespersons install, modify, maintain and repair instrumentation used in measurement and control systems. These instruments measure and control temperature, pressure and flow in processes used in industries such as petro-chemical, mining, food and manufacturing.
Lift mechanics assemble, install, adjust, maintain and repair electric and hydraulic freight and passenger lifts and escalators. An experienced lift mechanic is able to perform more complex work functions and tasks, such as adjusting and tuning lifts to make sure they work safely and efficiently.
Light engine mechanics test, service and repair small engines and parts in boats and other small engine-powered equipment such as chainsaws, brush-cutters, lawnmowers, pumps and stationary engines.
Locksmiths install, sell, test and maintain locks and related security devices and systems.
Manufacturing production managers plan, administer and review the manufacturing activities of an organisation to optimise resource use, minimise costs and maintain quality standards.
Mechanical engineering technicians carry out technical support functions as part of mechanical engineering research, design, manufacture, operations and maintenance. They may work under the direction of mechanical engineers, technologists and associates in all stages of planning, design, maintenance and production.
Mechanical engineering technologists design, inspect, manage and test technologies, systems and procedures in mining, manufacturing or processing industry plants.
Mechatronic engineers design and maintain machinery with electronic and computer control systems, such as aircraft, robots, motor vehicles, cameras, power generators and mining and chemical plant machinery.
Metal press operators use automatic or semi-automatic machines or machine tools to shape and form metal products or parts.
Metal trades assistants assist metal engineering tradespeople by performing routine tasks.
Metallurgical technicians test materials as part of mineral processing and metal refining, or for research purposes, and provide technical support to metallurgical engineers.
