Broad Function: Laminator lays-up I/L cores with pre-preg and copper foil. Utilizing heat and pressure the booked I/L cores are pressed to form a panel. Under close to minimum supervision, depending on assigned job level and skill capability, the Laminator by applying one or more lamination skills will be able to process panels through the lamination operation per the designated Manufacturing Process Procedures. Lamination skills are: flash route, breakdown, lay up, material preparation, and lamination press. Other duties as assigned.

Principal Duties and Responsibilities:
Material Prep: The material prep process is preparing all materials to be used in the lay-up process.

● Monitor humidity in material prep room.
● Verify requirements of incoming materials to package label.

● Brush panels for particles.

Process panels per Multilayer Lamination MPP:
● Verify press calibration.
● Verify proper vacuum pressure of press.
● Assure proper placement of books in press.
● Verify temperature and cycle time per traveler.
● Monitor to insure uniform and consistent flow of work through presses.

Perform other duties as assigned.
