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.
- Reviews work orders and specifications to determine materials needed and types of parts to be processed.
- Cuts, strips, and bends wire leads at ends of coils, using pliers and wire scrapers.
- 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.
- Attaches, alters, and trims materials such as wire, insulation, and coils, using hand tools.
- 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 record test results.
- Applies solutions or paints to wired electrical components, using hand tools, and bakes components.
- Disassembles and assembles motors, and repairs and maintains electrical components and machinery parts, using hand tools.
