2. Cut material to size or angle

2.1 Use equipment in line with organisational safety procedures, manufacturer s instructions and environmental protection practices.

2.2 Mark up material and set stops in preparation for cutting.

2.3 Follow cutting sequence and patterns to produce required quantity.

2.4 Check cuts for length and angle within set tolerances.

2.5 Dispose of incorrect cuts, off cuts and defective material in line with environmental protection practices.

2.6 Stack material safely in designated location in line with work order.

3. Complete operator maintenance

3.1 Follow organisational safety procedures to lock out equipment.

3.2 Check saw blades for bluntness or damage.

3.3 Remove and replace saw blades in line with manufacturer's recommendations.

3.4 Dispose of used blades in line with environmental protection practices.

3.5 Keep machine clear of dust and debris in line with organisational safety procedures.

3.6 Record and report production outcomes, equipment faults and maintenance requirements to appropriate personnel.

Foundation Skills

This section describes those core and employment skills that are essential to performance and are not explicit in the performance criteria.

  • identify quantities of required material within work orders and count numbers of panels to be sawn
  • complete basic calculations of required length and angle to determine saw set up
  • measure finished dimensions against specifications and appropriate tolerances.

Oral communication skills to:

  • ask questions and actively listen to clarify contents of work orders.

Reading skills to:

  • interpret:
  • workplace health and safety and other organisational procedures
  • work orders
  • manufacturer s instructions and maintenance recommendations.

Performance Evidence

A person demonstrating competency in this unit must satisfy all of the elements, performance criteria and foundation skills of this unit. If a specific volume or frequency is not stated below, then evidence must be provided that the following requirements have been performed on at least one occasion:

  • medium density fibreboard
  • laminated veneer
  • chipboard
  • fibreboard
  • plywood
  • continuous ply
  • across the above jobs, complete cutting patterns and sequences for single straight cuts and angles requiring one cutting pass set for multiple cuts of the same size
  • for each of the above jobs, stack batches of cut panels in storage location according to common length and width
  • after each of the above jobs, complete operator maintenance on the saw used.

Knowledge Evidence

A person competent in this unit must be able to demonstrate knowledge of:

  • storage layout and categories for:
  • raw materials
  • stacking finished panels
  • typical timber panel defects and how they affect ability to produce quality sawn panels:
  • warp
  • wane
  • cupping
  • shakes
  • insect defects
  • knots
  • resin pockets
  • cutting patterns and sequences for single straight cuts and angles requiring one cutting pass
  • range of industry standard lengths, cross sections and tolerances and applicable terminology
  • purpose, features and operation of equipment used to cut panels:
  • measuring equipment
  • manually controlled docking and trimming saws
  • band saws
  • bench saws
  • panel saws
  • saws with adjustable angle
  • saws with one or multiple blades
