Millwright Job Overview

Millwrights work in the construction industry, usually collaborating with contractors. Their primary responsibility is to install, dismantle, and move the machines and heavy equipment necessary for building. This requires millwrights to follow layout plans and blueprints to place the equipment in the proper locations to facilitate the building of various structures. Typical tasks include constructing foundations or base plates for large equipment. Millwrights are also required to level and align electric motors and other machinery.

Millwrights work with steel or other materials and must be knowledgeable in a variety of mechanical trades. Using lathes, milling machines, and grinders, millwrights move, assemble, and repair construction equipment such as conveyors, tram rails, and gear boxes. They are also often responsible for the maintenance and repair of major machinery. Tasks can include lubrication of the machinery, bearing and seal replacements, and preventative maintenance.

In either scenario, a millwright’s training typically consists of 2,000 hours of field work and 144 classroom hours. An associate degree in industrial maintenance is also required by some employers.
