What Is A Millwright?
A millwright is a skilled tradesman specializing in installing, maintaining, and repairing machinery and equipment used in industrial and manufacturing settings. Millwrights are responsible for assembling, disassembling, and moving heavy machinery and equipment and installing and aligning components such as gears, valves, bearings, and drives. They also perform routine maintenance and repairs on machinery. STEVENS Millwrights work on various types of machinery, including accumulators, milling machines, presses, conveyors, and other production and processing equipment. Our millwright team works in factories, manufacturing plants, other industrial facilities, sawmills, power plants, and pipe mills and may also be called upon to install and repair machinery at construction sites or other locations.
A millwright service company provides expert craftsmen who install, dismantle, maintain, repair, and move machinery, usually in an industrial setting.
The millwright is responsible for reading complicated schematics, blueprints, drawings, or service manuals to determine proper work procedures for the installation process, as well as producing preventative maintenance plans for the equipment. They utilize heavy rigging for moving the machinery into place and helping to make sure that it is aligned with the proper specifications.
In addition, the millwright will take on the role of a carpenter, welder, fabricator, pipefitter, mechanic, and electrician. They must be able to navigate software programs as the equipment becomes more advanced.
Before the installation process, the millwright service company is responsible for setting the benchmarks for specific tolerances to make sure the machine operates optimally.
Throughout the installation process, the millwright adheres to the benchmarks to level and align the equipment and the gearboxes, electric motors, and couplings to ensure the machinery is operating within specified tolerances.
Working within these tolerances improves the final product as it comes off the machine. If the tolerances are maintained to the thousandth of an inch as STEVENS manages, the dimensional tolerances on the final product will be on spec every time.
A millwright's tools are integral to their trade. Below is a list of the standard tools a millwright may use, but it is not an exhaustive list as the tools vary depending upon the specific job and type of equipment.
It is a common misconception to think that you only need millwright services when you put in a new piece of equipment or need to relocate an existing piece of equipment. A millwright's capabilities can be used for the following situations:
