How Millwright Services Enhance Manufacturing
Millwright services have been around since the dawn of the industrial and manufacturing era. As machinery ages and starts to falter in performance, millwright services are called upon to repair, upgrade, or fabricate new components.
The term millwright was coined for the tradespeople who repaired windmills, sawmills, flour mills, and other related equipment. These early-stage manufacturing facilities were crucial for the production of food, paper, and other essential supplies. As a result, the importance of millwright services grew.
What Does a Millwright Do?
Nowadays, millwrights are more focused on repairing and maintaining modern machinery and are a cross of a general laborer, carpenter, electrician, and welder. They're tasked with assembling, dismantling, and overhauling machinery using hand and power tools.
In some cases, millwrights will fabricate customized parts or perform repairs using lathes, milling machines, and grinders. Millwrights are also responsible for machinery component installation, such as precision bearings, gearboxes, and conveyors.
Finally, millwrights perform routine maintenance tasks such as machinery lubrication, cleaning, and component replacements.
