Release 1

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

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • correctly set up (including knife change) and produce THREE complex guillotined products (with three different substrates eg paper, strawboard, plastic, book cloth, and both large and small sheets) using a semi-automated or automated electronic guillotine, and setting a complex cutting program according to manufacturer s and job specifications, enterprise procedures and listed performance criteria
  • demonstrate all safety devices on the machine
  • demonstrate use of computerised control, monitoring and data entry systems if available and appropriate.

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:

  • identify work health and safety (WHS) factors for:
  • handling knife blades during the knife change operation
  • setting up and operating the guillotine for a complex cutting job
  • checking and adjusting the machine
  • maintaining the production process
  • shutting down and/or cleaning the machine
  • determine information concerning cutting found in the job documentation or production control system, and how to interpret this information to ensure smooth workflow throughout the factory
  • explain SIX trade terms that may be used in the documentation for complex cutting or guillotine knife change operations
  • determine elements that must be considered when planning a cutting sequence

  • explain the use of a double bevel on a guillotine knife
  • list factors that indicate a new blade is needed, and the result if a dull blade is used continuously
  • explain the difference between a sharp knife and a dull knife, and the information to record when a dull knife is replaced

  • identify machine manuals, safety and other documentation relevant to this task, where they are kept, and the information included 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 relevant facilities, equipment and materials.

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.
