Job Title - Mechanical Assembly Fitter Location - Nottingham Salary - £25,000 plus Overtime (OTE £30k) Hour of Work - 8am - 4pm (Monday to Friday) - 40 hour week The Company Our client specialises in the design, build, installation and commissioning of fully automated assembly, manufacturing and distribution equipment for the Automotive, Food & Beverage and Logistics sectors. Supplying worldwide and with manufacturing and design houses across Europe and the US, this multi-million pound business are experiencing a rapid period of growth. Their Nottingham site, which specifically produces automated assembly lines for the Automotive Industry, have been growing their Production Department as part of their continued growth, and now require an additional Mechanical Assembly Fitter to help build and assemble the various lines they supply. The Role The Mechanical Assembly Fitter will be assembling the various electromechanical systems from technical drawings using various hand tools, such as spanners, socket sets, allen keys, hand drills, electric screw drivers and hammers. All the fabrication and machining work has been completed on the components in advance, however there would be the need for some tolerancing and fettling to ensure the various mechanical components fit. Component wise, the Mechanical Assembly Fitter will be fitting parts such as gearboxes, bearings, rollers, belts, chains, sprockets, motors, metal framework, hydraulic and pneumatic rams and actuators, cams, pulleys and shafts, plus basic electrical components like sensors and switches. Once the machine is assembled it will require testing to ensure it is working to design parameters. If a fault occurs the Mechanical Assembly Fitter will need to be able to fault find through to ascertain which component is at fault. Most faults generally occur due to incorrect assembly, so attention to detail during the build phase is critical. Once the line has been tested and passed the line is then broken down into sections, ready for transportation to their customer's site. On large installation projects, the Mechanical Assembly Fitters would be required to accompany the Installation Engineers to the customer's site to assist with the installation and commissioning phase, which can take anywhere between 2 days and 2 weeks. The Candidate To be successful in your application you must have the following skills or attributes: - Must have a recognised Mechanical Qualification. - Must have previous experience assembling electromechanical equipment. - Must be willing to stay away 3 to 4 times a year for installation work. All travel and Hotels are paid for by the business, including meals and away stay bonus. Worst case scenario you would be required to stay away once a month, although realistically it would be once or twice a quarter as projects typically take 6 weeks to complete in the workshop.
