Application

This unit of competency describes the skills and knowledge required to monitor, control and shut down finishing and converting operations in a pulp or paper manufacturing facility.

The unit applies to production operators and technicians who operate and monitor systems, production and product quality as well as conduct equipment shutdowns. This typically involves working in a facility with complex integrated equipment and continuous operations. Finishing and converting operations describe a range of systems and subsystems, including winding and re-winding, decorating, lotionising, calendering, water marking, perforating, slitting and cutting, embossing, laminating, folding, printing, bonding, core making, wrapping and packing.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
