BOILERMAKER

DESCRIPTION

Boilermakers learn how to layout and cut heavy sheet metal from a blueprint and straighten or reshape metal using a variety of processes such as forging, founding, welding and the use of related computer controlled equipment. In this trade you will also learn how to use a wide variety of hammers and hand tools and the use of rigging and chain hoists as these are used to lift heavy frame and plate sections and other parts into place.

FITTER & TURNER

DESCRIPTION

Fitters and turners are highly skilled craftspeople who manufacture, construct, assemble and fit components for machinery, vehicles, installations and other apparatus or articles. Fitter and turners are also responsible for the maintenance and repair of such equipment.

Fitters and turners first select and mark off the material required according to exact measurements on blueprints, drawings or a model. They then shape the rough piece of metal into its final form with power-operated tools such as lathes, milling, drilling and planing machines. Finally they fit the parts required to complete the machine or article and inspect and test the final assembly for true fit.

MODULES

TURNER

DESCRIPTION

A turner is generally involved in the setting up of machinery to enable the manufacture of engineering product6s, repair or replacement of components, installation and maintenance of plant and machinery, and construction and commissioning work. They Operate a range of equipment including welding equipment; lathes; milling machinery; grinding machinery and hydraulic presses.

MODULES
