Release 1

This version first released with ICP Printing and Graphic Arts Training Package Version 1.0.

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • produce products involving a range of minor flat-bed cutting processes including: kiss cutting, hole punching, hole drilling, slotting, slitting, sheeting, creasing, scoring, and pin perforating, indexing and round cornering according to job specifications and production timeframes
  • demonstrate THREE different processes, and for each process, complete TWO jobs with different types and sizes of substrate and design of finished patterns, according to manufacturer’s and job specifications, enterprise procedures and listed performance criteria.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:

  • explain work health and safety (WHS) factors for:
  • setting up and/or operating machine transport systems
  • setting up and/or operating machine delivery systems
  • maintaining and adjusting the cutting process
  • conducting machine shutdown procedures
  • identify checks needed when:
  • substrate is removed from the machine
  • packing cutting devices
  • waste is removed from the machine and surrounding area for disposal or recycling
  • cutting devices or knives are cleaned or replaced ready for the next run
  • during the machine shutdown procedure
  • identify areas of the machine to monitor and adjust to ensure trouble-free operation
  • explain indicators that mean knife replacement is needed
  • determine when a cutting pressure adjustment is required
  • explain the procedure for correcting common machine faults
  • determine machine cleaning requirements at the end of the run
  • determine production records to be kept or written up, and information to include in this reporting procedure
  • identify machine manuals, safety and other documentation relevant to this task, where they are kept, and the information in them.

Assessment Conditions

Gather evidence to demonstrate consistent performance in conditions that are safe and replicate the workplace. Noise levels, production flow, interruptions and time variances must be typical of those experienced in the converting, binding and finishing field of work and include access to special purpose tools, equipment and materials.

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.
