What do they do?
Fitting and machining engineers make and assemble components for plants and equipment used in New Zealand and overseas. They use modern engineering process and machinery.
A typical day
Normally an eight-hour day; sometimes working longer may be required. Each day can be quite different; fitting and machining work is varied and can include the assembly, alignment and machining of components, plus installation of machines, hydraulic or pneumatic control systems.
Basic Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machinery operations are often involved and you could be involved in making prototypes for testing purposes.
