Textile technicians maintain and repair machinery or plant used in textiles production. They may work in one or all of the following production areas within a textile factory, depending on its size:
Technicians check machines on a regular basis, fixing any minor problems. On modern machinery, computers assist technicians with diagnosing faults.
On locating a fault, they strip the machine, repair or replace the damaged parts, re-assemble the machine and then test it thoroughly before clearing it for production. Regular maintenance can involve cleaning, oiling, greasing and checking performance levels.
All work undertaken is recorded in detail.
Most modern textile factories are light and spacious. Some manufacturing processes are noisy and the atmosphere can be hot and humid. Textile technicians wear protective clothing.
