Modification History

Release 1. Unit code and title changed. Application changed. Elements and Performance Criteria changed. Range of Conditions removed. Assessment Requirements changed. Supersedes and is equivalent to PMBFIN202 Fit attachments to products.

Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to use polymer fabrication techniques to fit and assemble components or customised products.

This unit applies to an individual working alone or as part of a team.

This unit principally refers to those specialised polymer fabrication techniques that can be applied to the manufacture of orthotics, prosthetics, bionic and mechanical healthcare and industrial products.

No licensing or certification requirements exist at the time of publication. Relevant legislation, industry standards and codes of practice within Australia must be applied.

Competency Field

Finishing – Production

Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements 

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance Criteria 

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Establish and prepare requirements for fitting and assembly processes

1.1 Identify requirements from job order specifications defined by compliance requirements

1.2 Assemble required equipment and materials for electrical, traditional machine sewing, riveting, or 3D-printing finishing techniques

1.3 Consult safety data sheets and standard operating procedures to confirm safe work processes

1.4 Prepare and assemble required jigs and clamps to support finishing tasks

1.5 Prepare vacuum-assist equipment to support finishing tasks

1.6 Prepare robotic workmate assistance to support finishing tasks

2. Fit and assemble job with attachments

2.1 Apply polymer or metallic fasteners according to job specifications

2.2 Apply thermoset bonding resins according to job specifications

2.3 Complete other secondary process operations as required to meet job specifications

2.4 Apply waste management and recycling strategies according to workplace procedures

2.5 Monitor process and compare with specifications to identify suitability for further processing or for customer delivery

2.6 Assemble and sort finished products to meet delivery requirements

3. Inspect product for quality conformance

3.1 Inspect finished product for suitability for further processing, for customer delivery or for remediation, according to job specifications and workplace procedures

3.2 Perform sample testing of coupons and bonded pieces to establish operational and visual conformance, and compliance with relevant standards

3.3 Accurately maintain compliance records relating to relevant standards

3.4 Pack as required by job specifications

4. Respond to product imperfections

4.1 Recognise product imperfections and their causes

4.2 Determine, prioritise and implement remedial actions based on identified issues and causes

4.3 Accurately maintain records and logbooks

Foundation Skills

This section describes those language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills that are essential to performance.

  • Numeracy skills to interpret technical specifications and equipment readings.
  • Reading skills to interpret job and technical specifications.
  • Writing and oral communication skills to record and report on compliance and processes.

Other foundation skills essential to performance are explicit in the performance criteria of this unit of competency.
