Profession precision instrument assembler
Precision instrument assemblers read blueprints and assembly drawings to assemble precision instruments such as micrometers, gauges, thermostats and utility meters. They collect the different components and piece them together using hand tools or machinery. Furthermore they calibrate the instruments and test their precision.

- Instrumentation engineering
The science and engineering discipline that attempts to control process variables of production and manufacturing. It also focuses on the design of systems with desired behaviours. These systems use sensors to measure the output performance of the device that is being controlled.
- Precision mechanics
Precision or fine mechanics is a subdiscipline in engineering that focuses on the design and development of smaller precision machines.
- Instrument performance elements
Elements that indicate or influence instrument performance. A first indication of the performance of the instrument is the accuracy or precision of the instrument, such as its response time, resolution, and range. A second indication of performance is the technical performance of the instrument, such as its power level, the electromagnetic interference, and transient voltages. A third indication of performance are environmental factors that can influence instrument performance, such as humidity, operating temperatures, or dust.
- Quality standards
The national and international requirements, specifications and guidelines to ensure that products, services and processes are of good quality and fit for purpose.
- Instrumentation equipment
The equipment and instruments used for the monitoring and controlling of processes, such as valves, regulators, circuit breakers, and relays.
- Precision measuring instruments
Instruments used for precision measuring or manufacture, such as micrometers, calipers, gauges, scales, and microscopes.
Must be able to read and understand blueprints, drawings and plans and maintain simple written records.
- Assemble instrumentation equipment
Build systems and instruments which measure, control, and monitor processes. Fit the instrument parts such as power supplies, control units, lenses, springs, circuit boards, sensors, transmitters, and controllers.
- 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.
- Wear appropriate protective gear
Wear relevant and necessary protective gear, such as protective goggles or other eye protection, hard hats, safety gloves.
- Calibrate precision instrument
Examine the precision instruments and assess whether the instrument meets the quality standards and production specifications. Correct and adjust the reliability by measuring output and comparing results with the data of a reference device or a set of standardised results.
- Test instrumentation equipment
Check the instrumentation equipment for accuracy and performance using pneumatic, electronic, and electrical test and measuring equipment and hand tools.
- Monitor manufacturing quality standards
Monitor quality standards in manufacturing and finishing process.
- Read standard blueprints
Read and comprehend standard blueprints, machine, and process drawings.
- Apply health and safety standards
Adhere to standards of hygiene and safety established by respective authorities.
- Operate precision measuring equipment
Measure the size of a processed part when checking and marking it to check if it is up to standard by use of two and three dimensional precision measuring equipment such as a caliper, a micrometer, and a measuring gauge.
- Set tolerances
Align tolerances while inserting and placing different parts to avoid tolerance discrepancy and misfits in assembly.
- Pack goods
Pack different kinds of goods such as finished manufactured products or goods in use. Pack goods by hand in boxes, bags and other types of containers.
- Report defective manufacturing materials
Maintain required company records and forms in order to report any defective materials or questionable conditions of manufacturing machinery and equipment.
