Mechatronics Maintenance Technicians ensure that plant and equipment perform to the required standard to facilitate production targets regarding Safety, Quality, Delivery and Cost within High Value Manufacturing environments.
Typically the work would cover a broad range of activities including; installation, testing, fault finding and the ongoing planned maintenance of complex automated equipment. This requires the application of a complex blend of skills, knowledge and occupational behaviours across the electrical, electronic, mechanical, fluid power and control systems disciplines.
All the learners will begin with a 2 week induction covering the principles of the apprenticeship, Induction to Programme and additional courses such as:
- IOSH Working Safely
- Manual Handling
- Abrasive Wheels
- Diary keeping & continuous professional log
- Equality & Diversity
- Prevent Agenda
- Employment Rights & Responsibilities
- Introduction to Lean
To begin their journey through to becoming an Engineering Technician all learners start with off the job training covering 3 or 5 days dependent upon whether they are undertaking a full time or part time course. During this time learners will work towards achieving a Level 2 Diploma in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (Foundation Competence) and a begin their Level 3 Diploma in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (Development Knowledge) this knowledge element spans the whole of the programme.
Dependent upon prior qualifications learners may also need to complete functional skills in English & Maths to a minimum Level 2.
- Understand mathematical techniques, formula and calculation in a mechatronics maintenance environment and the type of equipment being maintained.
- Understand mechanical, electrical, electronic, fluid power and process control principles in a mechatronics maintenance environment.
- Understand how equipment being maintained functions and operating parameters in individual components and how they interact.
- Understand fault diagnosis methods, techniques and equipment used when maintaining equipment and systems.
- Understand condition monitoring methods and equipment used and understand how the information gained supports the planning of maintenance activities.
- Understand how to minimise machinery downtime by implementing planned preventative maintenance programmes.
- Read and interpret relevant data and documentation used to maintain components, equipment and systems.
- Carry out condition monitoring of plant and equipment.
- Carry out planned maintenance activities on plant and equipment.
- Carrying out complex fault diagnosis and repair activities on high technology engineered systems such as: 1. Maintaining Mechanical Equipment 2. Maintaining Fluid & Pneumatic Power Equipment 3. Maintaining Electrical & Electronic Equipment 4. Maintaining Process Control Equipment
- Carrying out confirmation testing and subsequent smooth hand over of equipment & plant.
- Support the installation, testing and commissioning of equipment (where applicable)
- Contribute to the business by identifying possible opportunities for improving working practices process and/or procedures.
