Most factories in Canada use hydraulic or pneumatic power systems. These are two types of systems that use pressurized fluids to carry power: Hydraulic systems use “wet” fluids like oil and water while pneumatic systems use “dry” fluids like pressurized air or other gases. As a Hydraulic/Pneumatic Mechanic, you will install, maintain, repair, rebuild, and modify both systems.
But this job isn’t limited to factories. These fluid power systems are also found in automobile power brakes and power steering, sliding supermarket doors, or the flaps in airplane wings. These machines are everywhere and powering society, and you will be the person making sure they all function.
