Corrugator operators tend a machine that folds a sheet of heavy paper in a wave-like pattern and covers it on both sides to create a lightweight, sturdy material suitable for packaging.
Realistic / Conventional
Types of paper-The different criteria used to determine differences in paper types such as coarseness and thickness, and the different fabrication methods and wood types from which the types of paper stem.
Flute sizes- Flute sizes refer to the number of flutes per linear foot and its thickness. Flutes are the waves and arches on a corrugated box and make up the structure of corrugated paperboard, giving it rigidity and strength.
Monitor paper reel- Overview of the jumbo paper reel, which winds the paper at the right tension onto a core.
Work safely with machines- Check and safely operate machines and equipment required for your work according to manuals and instructions.
Operate corrugator- Set up and monitor the machine that corrugates face paperboard to form corrugated paperboard material for containers. The machine runs paper sheets through splices and corrugating rolls, where steam and heat are applied and flutes are formed. Glue is applied and the flute is fused with two-line boards to produce a single corrugated board.
