    Aircraft Rigging Assemblers

    Fabricate and assemble aircraft tubing or cable components or assemblies. Fabricate and assemble aircraft tubing or cable components or assemblies.

    Tests tubing and cable assemblies for defects, using pressure testing equipment and proofloading machines. Selects and installs accessories in swaging machine, using hand tools. Reads and interprets, blueprints, work orders, data charts, and specifications to determine operations, and type, quantity, dimensions, configuration, and finish of tubing, cable and fittings. Marks location of cutouts, holes, and trim lines of parts and relationship of parts, using measuring instruments. Forms loops or splices in cables, using clamps and fittings, or reweaves cable strands. Swages fittings onto cable, using swaging machine. Sets up and operates machines and systems to crimp, cut, bend, form, swage, flare, bead, burr, and straighten tubing, according to specifications. Assembles and attaches fittings onto cable and tubing components, using hand tools. Measures, cuts, and inspects cable and tubing, using master template, measuring instruments, and cable cutter or saw. Welds tubing and fittings, and solders cable ends, using tack-welder, induction brazing chamber, or other equipment. Fabricates cable templates. Verifies dimensions of cable assembly and position of fittings, using measuring instruments, and repairs and reworks defective assemblies. Marks identifying information on tubing or cable assemblies, using electro-chemical etching device, label, rubber stamp, or other methods. Cleans, lubricates, and coats tubing and cable assemblies.
