Fitting and Turning: N1


Fitters and turners are highly skilled craftspeople who manufacture construct. Assemble and fit components for machinery, vehicles. Installations and other apparatus or articles.

Fitter and turners are also responsible for the maintenance and repair of such equipment. Fitters and turners first select and mark off the material required according to exact measurements on blueprints, drawings or a model.

They then shape the rough piece of metal into its final form with power-operated tools such as lathes, milling, drilling and planning machines. Finally they fit the parts required to complete the machine or article and inspect and test the final assembly for true fit.
