Assembler - 1st, 2nd And 3rd Shifts Available

Company: Aerotek
Location: Elgin
Posted on: November 19, 2021

Job Description:

**Shift schedule** :
1st: 6:00 am - 2:00 pm
2nd: 2:00 pm - 10:00 pm
3rd: 10:00 pm - 6:00 am
**You will also get two 20 minute paid breaks**
**Job Description:**
You will be required to:
--- Learn about gear boxes and all of the components that are used in both assemblies and sub-assemblies
--- Learn about pinions (small gears), torque arms, ring gears, and all of the elements that make up the gear box they produce
--- Will be trained by the EHS Manager on how to safely operate an overhead crane that you will then use to lift, hoist, and move the gear boxes throughout the facility. The overhead crane will be used to turn the gear boxes face up so that they can be taken apart. (There is no heavy lifting at this location as everything is done through crane operation - max weight lifted is 30 lbs. and it is not constant).
--- Will be required to disassemble the gear boxes that have bolts the size of a kitchen faucet. To loosen these bolts, you will be trained on how to use torque wrenches if required to be removed manually, or impact gun if a power tool is required.
--- Will ultimately be trained on how to read or interpret their gear box documentation and step by step instructions.
--- IT IS ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL that when you are taking apart these gear boxes with housing failures that you locate and write down the serial number from each individual part. If one serial number is missed and the gear box is assembled, you will have to spend an entire day taking it apart to simply locate the serial number. Attention to detail is critical here.
**Assembler Process:**
1. Parts Washing
--- After doing basic training with the EHS Manager and learning how to safely operate an overhead crane, you will start in the parts washing area where you will learn all of the components that go into the sub-assemblies. These parts have to be washed as they have a wax coating to protect against corrosion.
2. Sub Assembly
--- Once the parts are washed you will then be moved into the sub-assembly department where you will be required to heat the parts into an oven so that the gears are warped into shape and can easily be put together when attempting assembly. This is not possible unless it is heated prior to assembly.
3. Assembly
--- Once the sub-assemblies are completed, you will then be required to operate the overhead crane and return the gear box back to its normal position where the exterior housing will be attached. Once this is completed, you will move to the final stage of assembly prior to being sent to the testing department.
4. Customer Addon Assembly
--- Many of these gear boxes are used for the same customer but certain ones require specific addons. For instance, you will need to read instructions on what needs to be attached to that specific gear box. Many of them feature pumps, wires, cables, and other applications. These fixtures will be mounted by using an impact wrench.
