Mechatronics Maintenance Technicians ensure that plant and equipment perform to the required standard to facilitate production targets regarding safety, quality, delivery and cost within High Value Manufacturing environments.
Typically the work would cover a broad range of activities to include installation, testing, fault finding and the on-going planned maintenance of complex automated equipment. This requires the application of a complex blend of skills, knowledge and occupational behaviours across the electrical, electronic, mechanical, fluid power and control systems disciplines.
