Taking a Look at a Mechanical Assembler

Posted May 12, 2013

Mechanical assemblers are at the very heart of manufacturing. This employee is responsible for putting together the products or product components that make up the business of any manufacturing facility. Often this will require experience reading blueprints or schematics as well as knowledge of hand tools, soldering, or molding. It is important to understand the value of a mechanical assembler for your business when deciding to add staff to your operation. Here are some things to think about for your next assembly hire.

  • Testing. It is important for a mechanical assembler to have skills in math as well as the dexterity to handle small parts. To ensure that your next assembler can meet your business needs, consider working with a staffing service that can pre-screen all candidates to provide a team member who is skilled and knowledgeable.
  • Flexible schedule. It is very common for companies to have intermittent work and unusual schedules. Projects change, grow, and wane throughout the year depending on the supply and demand of the products that are assembled. Temporary staffing is the perfect solution for this fluctuation of production. A short term assembler will understand the needs of your organization and can work with both you and the staffing company to provide quality production services.
  • Specialized manufacturing. There are many different types of assembly and each company will have specific requirements. For example, electronic assembly will require experience assembling circuit boards or other electronic equipment. It is typical to need candidates who can use a soldering gun through a microscope or who have experience with reading electrical schematics.
  • Medical assembly. Another specialized function that can require certain skills or adherence to policies is medical assembly. Often, this assembly is conducted in a clean room environment necessitating that the assemblers wear lab coats, safety glasses, and gloves. They may also need to adhere to strict cleanliness guidelines.
  • Temporary hiring. Your local staffing service is trained to assist you with all of these functions within your facility. The ability to prescreen, hire individuals with specialized experience, and assist employees with other assignments when the project is complete makes this partnership a perfect match.
