Industrial Maintenance Technology
Properly running machinery is vital in any industrial facility. Inoperative machines will result in delayed production. Equipment that is not properly maintained may damage the product being produced. This all adds up to lost profits and reduced competitiveness for business.
So, who fixes a broken piece of production machinery?
Who performs preventative maintenance and troubleshooting on factory equipment?
Industrial mechanics are responsible for keeping things in good working order in a manufacturing or industrial setting.
If you have knack for fixing things and enjoying figuring out how things run, check out the Industrial Maintenance Technology program at Lake Michigan College.
Industrial mechanics do not have a typical day. Every day, new problems and challenges present themselves. Troubleshooting, equipment repairs and/or rebuilds, and preventative maintenance are just some of the activities which industrial mechanics are expected to perform. Performing visual inspections; changing machine parts; adjusting and calibrating automated manufacturing equipment; and keeping machines oiled, greased, and cleaned are all part of regularly scheduled preventative maintenance. read more
