The diversity of machines/equipment in this area ensures different interventions.

As soon as a fault is detected and identified, the mechanic proceeds with the repair to remedy it. This operation includes the dismantling of mechanical parts, lubrication, emptying, purging or directly changing parts if necessary.

For operations on electronic equipment, the individual must carry out reprogramming, measurement and control operations for the proper functioning of the machine. When the modifications are made, he must carry out tests in order to guarantee the effectiveness of his intervention.
