Winds wire coils used in electrical components, such as resistors and transformers, and in electrical equipment and instruments, such as field cores, bobbins, armature cores, electrical motors, generators, and control equipment.
This career is part of the Manufacturing cluster Production/Process Technology pathway.
A person in this career:
- Operates or tends wire-coiling machines to wind wire coils used in electrical components such as resistors and transformers, and in electrical equipment and instruments such as bobbins and generators.
- Attaches, alters, and trims materials such as wire, insulation, and coils, using hand tools.
- Cuts, strips, and bends wire leads at ends of coils, using pliers and wire scrapers.
- Reviews work orders and specifications to determine materials needed and types of parts to be processed.
- Selects and loads materials such as workpieces, objects, and machine parts onto equipment used in coiling processes.
- Records production and operational data on specified forms.
- Stops machines to remove completed components, using hand tools.
- Examines and tests wired electrical components such as motors, armatures, and stators, using measuring devices, and records test results.
- Lines slots with sheet insulation, and inserts coils into slots.
- Applies solutions or paints to wired electrical components, using hand tools, and bake components.
