Additional Information Working with Others

Industrial mechanics and construction millwrights perform many of their tasks independently. They also form teams with co-workers, clients and contractors when necessary to install and overhaul larger pieces of equipment and complete industrial systems. They may supervise and train apprentices and junior mechanics.

Continuous Learning

As new equipment and tools and changing regulations are a regular feature of their work environments, industrial mechanics and construction millwrights must learn continuously. They read manuals and bulletins to stay abreast of developments in their field. They also learn informally by exchanging information with co-workers and suppliers. They attend training workshops on new equipment and safety procedures, as required by their employers. They may also take courses on their own initiative to learn and improve related technical skills, such as welding and pump repair.

Impact of Digital Technology

All essential skills are affected by the introduction of technology in the workplace. Industrial Mechanics and Construction Millwrights' ability to adapt to new technologies is strongly related to their skill levels across the essential skills, including reading, writing, thinking and communication skills. Technologies are transforming the ways in which workers obtain, process and communicate information, and the types of skills needed to perform in their jobs. In particular, industrial mechanics and construction millwrights need digital skills to perform day-to-day tasks, such as operating personal digital assistant (PDA) devices and calculators (e.g. to calculate material requirements) and modifying scale drawings using computer-assisted design (CAD), manufacturing and machining programs. They may also use records management databases, communication software and the Internet. For instance, industrial mechanics and construction millwrights use Internet browsers and search engines to access technical service bulletins, codes, specifications and troubleshooting guides.

Technology in the workplace further affects the complexity of tasks related to the essential skills required for this occupation. In particular, the sophisticated mechanisms found in industrial equipment have increased the complexity of technical drawings, such as schematics of complex mechanical, structural, pneumatic and hydraulic systems. At the same time, workers can also complete documents, such as equipment maintenance records, with speed and accuracy using software applications that input data automatically.

Textile Machinery Mechanics and Repairers

Textile machinery mechanics and repairers install, maintain, repair, overhaul and set up textile machinery such as looms, knitting machines, spinning frames and carding machines. They are employed by textile manufacturing companies.

They request and obtain additional resources when possible. For example, knitting machine mechanics sometimes encounter difficulties in getting patterns to perform as expected. They consult maintenance supervisors and obtain help from co-workers. They may ask other mechanics to set up yarn feeds while they continue to set needles and adjust yarn tensions and machine speeds. (2)
  • Discover some parts are unavailable for set-ups, maintenance and repairs. They discuss options to place rush orders, adapt existing parts or fabricate replacements with other mechanics and supervisors. (2)
Decision Making

They consider the moisture content of fabrics and types of chemical products used in finishing processes. Knitting technicians decide to adjust sinker caps and change feeder tension on single-knit knitting machines to eliminate barring in fabric. They look at fabric samples, discuss samples with quality inspectors and use their knowledge and experience to make the appropriate adjustments. (2)
  • May select yarn types and weights, yarn feed speeds and tensions, machine speeds, takedown heights and speeds for new patterns. They use their experience and trial and error to choose the best combinations. (2)
Critical Thinking
  • Evaluate the condition of parts and equipment. They inspect parts for signs of wear and damage such as cracks and discoloration. They compare test results and measurements to specifications. They observe machines in operation and assess operating variables such as machine speeds, dryer temperatures and flow rates. (2)
  • Assess the quality of product samples. They make observations, take measurements and consult supervisors and quality assurance inspectors. For example, knitting technicians verify fabric sample weights and stretch test results and use their experience to judge the tightness of weave and the look and feel of knitted fabrics. (2)
  • May judge the suitability of modifications to equipment and machinery. They ensure modifications meet technical specifications, safety regulations and performance requirements. For example, weaving mechanics assess the suitability of modifying beam warping machines to hold larger than usual spool flanges. They consider machine and spool specifications and operators' comments on ease of use. (3)
Job Task Planning and Organizing

Textile mechanics and repairers receive work assignments from their supervisors. They plan job tasks to carry out this work effectively. Their job task plans may be interrupted by emergency repairs. They provide supervisors with time estimates so they can reschedule production runs. (2)

Significant Use of Memory
  • Remember disassembly and reassembly steps for equipment. They remember the orientation and sequences of parts in larger assemblies.
  • Remember details of past repair jobs. For example, repairers in textile plants may remember adjustments made to finishing machines to eliminate fabric defects such as slight biases.
Finding Information
