Manufacturing technicians, also called industrial technicians, work in manufacturing units on the shop floor.
Industrial technicians are skilled in measurement, welding, soldering, electrical wiring, machining, and fitting.
They create or fix equipment, machinery, tools, and fixtures using tools like lathes, drill presses, and grinders.
Technicians typically specialize in one specific field, such as industrial machinery, electrical, or welding.
Manufacturing technicians typically work a regular 40-hour week, but overtime is common.
Overtime hours are typically paid at time-and-a-half.
