Who is Electromechanical Technician?

An electromechanical technician is a specialist who is mainly responsible for the controlling and technical maintenance of the machines on the production site. When there is a breakdown, they are the first to analyse the problem and find the solution so the production processes can restart as soon as possible.

To avoid potential problems and improve the functionality of the machines, which number reaches 100 just on the Lintgen site, they are also planning preventive actions.

The profession’s philosophy resembles translators, where the electromechanical technician must understand what the machine’s constructor means and follow up based on facts and technical background.

What is the perfect profile for an Electromechanical Technician?

The priority for an excellent electromechanical technician is security, so the person must respect the rules to avoid dangerous situations that can happen for them or their colleagues. A good base of electrics and mechanics is required as professional knowledge, as the work with the machines means both. An electromechanical technician must be organized and rigorous, as the job requires dealing with many details of different sizes, materials, and nature.

Analytical skills and the ability to listen are essential for the role. When the task comes, you need to listen to your colleagues, keeping in mind everything that can be relevant. Following that, it is crucial to be a team player, asking questions and being ready to share the expertise with colleagues who need it.

Last, but not the least – an excellent electromechanical technician is a calm one. If you are nervous, everybody around you will also be worried, making the task more difficult to solve.

Which superpower can an Electromechanical Technician have?

They have a fantastic ability to find solutions even to complex problems that initially seem unsolvable.

How does your typical day look like?

The electromechanical technicians at Rotarex work in two shifts: from 6:00 to 14:00 and from 14:00 to 22:00. Each workday is different; there is no place for routine, which makes the job exciting and varied. The machines always need a lot of care – even if everything is functioning correctly, you need to do a regular check-up, for example, to control the oil, drainage, and other related parts, and think about how to facilitate their work.

What do you like the most in your job?

The work of an electromechanical technician has a creative character, even if it doesn’t look obvious at the first site. A specialist has a space for being inventive for improving processes or correcting them. To come up with a solution that will work and last, that is inspiring.

What advice would you give to future colleagues joining your team?

To listen thoroughly to colleagues, to write down everything not to miss the crucial details, and always be on time. You should never be confused, thinking that all problems will be solved the same way. Be open to searching for new solutions because you can often see the same data and defects, but the existing variants are not applicable; each situation is unique.
