Production Line Maintenance Mechanic

Developed for both production and maintenance staff in a discrete manufacturing operation, this extensive topical program introduces a broad range of important topics for workers cross-trained in technical foundation skills, electrical principles, motors and machines, fluid power and hydraulics, and mechanical power transmission machinery.

An initial grounding in pre-technical foundation skills provides trainees important background material and/or a chance to brush up on existing skills. Optional supplementary lab work is electronics and DC principles is available midway through the curriculum. Students will learn to:

  • Explain the construction and operation of motors, generators, and transformers.
  • Perform the important steps for general maintenance and troubleshooting techniques using the required tools.
  • Identify, describe, remove, replace, install, and maintain common types of bearings and seals.
  • Match lubrication methods and materials to their applications and identify their implementation and maintenance requirements.
  • Explain the principles of fluid power, fluid flow, and fluid symbols and diagrams.
  • Explain hydraulic pumping principles and how the common types of hydraulic pumps, motors, and peripheral devices work.
  • Troubleshoot and maintain hydraulic circuits and systems.
  • Use the skills required for maintaining and operating the components found in a basic mechanical power transmission system.
  • Use the related principles and applications - appropriate to the electrical, hydraulic, and mechanical skill areas - in the installation, operation, and maintenance of production line equipment and machinery.
