Mechanics prepare, fit, align, and assemble components of a variety of duct assemblies to be welded. Many of these assemblies then are sent to the duct final assembly area for installation of additional components such as fittings, brackets, insulation, and part marking. These duct assemblies are subsequently installed on an aircraft or are incorporated into larger assemblies that are then installed on an airplane.
Employment in this position also requires handling, standing, use of low impact vibratory tools, walking, lifting and carrying less than 10 pounds, rotation of head/neck, flexion/extension, contact with metals, exposure to noise and atmospheric conditions, and the use of personal safety gear for face/eye, hand/arm, ears and feet.
Obtain and verify kitted (pre-picked) detail parts, standards and assemblies were issued correctly by comparing part numbers and quantities to Work Order (W/O) and/or Bill Of Material (BOM) on drawing(s). Ensure that parts issued are effective for the airplane and are free from visible defects and that tools received are the same as those listed on W/O and are effective for the assembly being built.
Obtain appropriate engineering drawing(s) for assigned job if drawings are not with order. Initiate planning or engineering change requests for pre-planned jobs, as required. Set up assembly tools per tooling instructions or drawings. Make sure all locators are correct for particular model configuration. Hand fit parts by setting them up in weld or other types of jigs using table vise, drill press vise, hand clamps, hose clamps, clecos, rounding rings, MIT's (Miscellaneous Tools) and ST's (Standard Tools).
Prepare detail parts by scribing trim lines, making rough cuts, sanding, grinding or trimming parts to remove excess material, tapping out dents, expanding (sizing), swaging, beading, and deburring as necessary, using tools such as band saws, disk grinders, nibblers, expanders, and cone sanders.
Deliver fitted details to weld area to be welded. Select drills, reamers, and or countersinking tools for pilot and full size holes per drawings or work order. Drill and/or ream holes in parts, assemblies, in proper sequence and to correct size (per drawing requirements) using tools such as drill motor, reamer, Winslow, 90-Degree Power Vane, or Quackenbush.
Disassemble parts and de-burr holes using chip chasers, de-burring tools, and files to prepare for installation of fasteners. Apply sealant, alodine, primer, adhesives, or special finishes as required by work order, drawing, or Boeing (BAC) specifications. Handle and dispose of hazardous materials (e.g., paints and sealant) in approved manner using personal protective equipment.
Determine and obtain correct type and size fasteners from roto-bin (e.g., hi-locks, rivets, bolts, nuts O-rings, and fittings), per drawing, work order, BAC specifications. Install detail parts and fasteners in correct sequence per work order using correct tools (e.g., rivet gun and bucking bar, lock bolt puller, power screwdriver, torque wrench, C-squeeze, riveting machine, ratchet wrench). Sell in-process checks, (e.g., fit checks, torque, pressure test, OK to close) to inspection as required. Attach insulation to duct assemblies as required.
Check work after completion of each operation in job, and check completed job to ensure it is complete per drawing and that there are no defects. Put completed job or reworked job up for inspection as required. Maintain personal and tool certifications, as required. Contact lead/supervisor when assistance is needed (e.g., if there are questions)
