Press Operator (Rotary Offset Web Litho Heatset/Coldset)


Hi. I worked 15 years in the print industry.Rotary offset web heatset is my qualification. If employed at a new company I learn the machine fast. I worked as a number 2. Basically I can run a machine without guidance once I learn the basics. In south africa I am known by alot of machine minders. They will love to have me work on their team as I take most of the responsabilities of their hands. I got an eye for detail and good mechanical skills. I pay great attention to safety. Trained alot of staff (semi skilled and artisans) how to operate the various machinery. Worked 12 hours continental shifts. Like learning new machinery to test my abilities. Can make suggestions if asked. Always looking to climb the coperate ladder by studying. Still fit.
