FITTER JOB ROLE –  Sizes metal parts to close tolerances and fits and assembles them using hand tools for production or repairs of machines, or other metal products. Studies drawings to understand specification of different parts, fittings or assembles to be made and their functions. They select materials, appropriate tool and equipments to carry out their work. Holds the work in Vice, Cuts and shapes required parts to dimensions and specifications by processes of sawing, chipping, filing, grinding, drilling holes, screw cutting, scrapping etc., using hand tools for making specimens or finished components. Measures object while working using foot rules, calipers, micrometer, gauges etc. and checks for correct filing with square. Gets half-finished object marked or marks it himself using face plate, marking block scriber, vernier, height gauges, vee-blocks, angle plate, sine plate, slip gauges, combination set, etc. depending on accuracies required, to indicate guide lines for finished sizes, holes to be drilled and pitch centres, threads to be cut and other working details as specified in drawing or sample. Clamps object securely in correct position in vice and files it to required dimensions according to punch marks and guide lines frequently measuring it with calipers, micrometre, vernier, gauges etc, makes holes with drill, cuts threads with taps and dies ensuring that they are square or at required angle to base. Measures finished article with dial indicator, micrometre, vernier, height gauges, screw gauges, plug gauges, sine bar, slip gauge, etc according to prescribed accuracies. May make parts separately and assemble those with screws, rivets, pins, etc. as specified so as to make complete unit according to drawing. Dismantles or removes worn out, broken or defective parts using hand tools or power tools and replaces them by repaired or new ones. Performs repairing and maintenance work (including preventive maintenance) of simple machines, dismantles and replaces different components to construct circuit of Pneumatics and Hydraulics. Tests completed article/ assembly to ensure correct performance. May do simple turning of parts on machines and perform welding, brazing, and like operations. May explain heat treatment processes viz., annealing, hardening, tempering etc. May specialize in particular type of machine or product and be designated accordingly. May suggest alterations.

In addition, Fitter have the ability to visualize the job, good coordination, mechanical attitude, manual dexterity and perform work related mathematical calculations.
