The duties the mould cutter does (apart from the sitting down part max time sat down 25 mins) is very physical that entails:

  2. Pull the mould off the unwind station and feed it into the machine, the mould is coiled and will require effort to make it straight and also pull it off and feed it into the moulding machine, the feeding involves pushing and pulling and again this is using upper body strength.
  3. Once the mould come out the mould cutter the operator has to start coiling this onto the winding station ( the winding station is motorised ) the operator has to walk around following the winding station help the first couple of wraps to run straight (this part is very physical and it is like wrestling with a stiff Anaconda!)
  4. Once the first cut has happened ( 25 mins ) the operator has to physically unwind the mould and pull it back through the machine and wind it back on the unwind station ready to do another cut.
  5. The process from stage 1 to 4 is repeated until the mould is complete.
