JOB SUMMARY:

A Blanker Operator is responsible for maintaining the operation of the Blanking Department by producing blanks required by the blanker schedule. Blanker Operators will inspect the assigned blanker (machine) to ensure all guards are in place, assess roll alignment, brakes, housekeeping and paperwork before starting production. Blanker Operator will ensure quality through visual inspection of the blank along with making machine adjustments on an as needed basis. The Blanker Operator is required to complete roll changes or print changes on the machine and will also unstack the blanks from the machine and load them onto a blank cart.  Blanker Operators monitor the quality of the blanks and print quality continuously during production and will report potential quality issues.

 

All employees must follow all Graphic Packaging International work rules, code of conduct and safety procedures and policies including wearing personal protective equipment such as steel-toed shoes, hearing protection and safety goggles.

  • Prior experience utilizing pallet jack —highly preferred
  • Must be able to use pallet jacks when moving full carts as well as to move paper rolls. The maximum force exerted to push/pull a cart is approximately 35 pounds of force (as measured with a push/pull gauge). The distance an item is pushed is approximately 5 feet – 30 feet, depending on the location of the employees work station.
  • Must be able to climb on small step ladders to remove paper jams in the machines. This occurs rarely throughout the shift. The Operator may also need to climb the back of the machine to make adjustments.
