Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • safely operate a gravure press consistent with efficient routine production flow that maintains product quality standards; ensuring any production problems are rectified with minimum downtime
  • correctly shutdown production process and clean and wash printing machine according to work health and safety (WHS) guidelines
  • demonstrate use of control, monitoring and data entry systems
  • find and use information relevant to the task from a variety of information sources
  • produce TWO basic gravure printing jobs (if possible including at least one in-line process) according to job specifications and enterprise procedures.

  • identify WHS concerns applicable to loading and handling heavy reels
  • identify how to determine printing side of the substrate
  • describe effect on the print of excessive tension on the unwinding reel
  • identify implication if the web is not spliced correctly

Gravure printing operations 

  • identify how frequently product quality should be assessed
  • identify appropriate action/s if print is filling in when printing
