Mechanical Systems Technicians help engineers design, develop, test, and manufacture mechanical devices, including tools, engines, and machines. They may make sketches and rough layouts, record and analyze data, make calculations and estimates, and report their findings. Often Mechanical Systems Technicians design equipment and make working models to test. When involved in manufacturing, these technicians frequently determine the strength, quality, quantity, and cost of materials. Technicians who specialize in Mechanical Systems may take the rough sketches produced by an engineer and convert them into detailed drawings. They might also provide illustrations and exploded views of machinery for operating or maintenance manuals.
