Electronic Board Assembly Program
What are the responsibilities of an Electronic Board Assembler?
An electronic equipment assembler most often works as part of an assembly line or production facility. He or she assembles and fabricates electronic products, meeting very precise specifications.
Many different tools are used in the process, from hand-operated tools such as soldering guns and small power tools, to large automatic and semi-automatic machines.
The work ranges from fairly basic and easy assembly work to complicated tasks that require advanced knowledge and experience. Assemblers often work with the designers and engineers in product development, sometimes assisting with prototypes and building test products. Workers must read and comprehend detailed blueprints and schematics.
Another important part of the job is quality control. Workers must conduct quality checks to identify faulty components and replace them at the source. Problems need to be fixed as early as possible in the stream, before large-scale manufacturing of defective products can occur.
