- Realistic / Conventional
- Electrical wire accessories
Electrical wire and cable products and accessories, such as electrical connectors, splices, and wire insulation.
- Manufacture of electrical wire products
The assembly processes and manufacturing steps taken to fabricate insulated electrical wire and cable, made from steel, copper, or aluminium.
- Electrical wiring diagrams
The visual schematic representation of an electrical circuit, its components, and the connections between these components.
- Carry out measurements of parts
Operate measurement instruments to measure parts of manufactured objects. Take into consideration specifications of manufacturers to perform the measuring.
- Operate soldering equipment
Use soldering equipment to melt and join together pieces of metal or steel, such as a soldering gun, soldering torch, gas-powered iron, and others.
- Bind wire
Bind cables or wire together using cable ties, conduit, cable lacing, sleeves, spot ties, cable clamps, or straps.
- Read assembly drawings
Read and interpret drawings listing all the parts and subassemblies of a certain product. The drawing identifies the different components and materials and provides instructions on how to assemble a product.
- Seal wires
Fasten and insulate electric or communications wires or cables.
- Use electrical wire tools
Use tools to manipulate wire which will be used for electrical purposes, such as wire strippers, crimpers, soldering irons, torque wrenches, and heat guns.
- Align components
Align and lay out components in order to put them together correctly according to blueprints and technical plans.
- Organise wires
Apply wire markers and cable labels to identify and organise the wire. Use tie-wrap or cable lace to keep the wires together.
- Apply soldering techniques
Apply and work with a variety of techniques in the process of soldering, such as soft soldering, silver soldering, induction soldering, resistance soldering, pipe soldering, mechanical and aluminium soldering.
- Cut wires
Operate machinery or use hand tools to cut wire.
- Crimp wire
Attach the electrical connector to the wire using crimping tools. Here the connector and the wire are joined together by deforming one or both so they fit into each other. The electrical connector may connect the wire to an electrical terminal or may join two lengths of wire together.
- Apply coating to electrical equipment
Prepare and apply coating, such as conformal coating, to electrical equipment and its components to protect the equipment against moisture, high temperature, and dust.
- Strip wire
Strip the wire ends using wire strippers to ensure proper connections.
- Meet deadlines
Ensure operative processes are finished at a previously agreed-upon time.
- Ensure conformity to specifications
Ensure that the assembled products are conform to the specifications given.
