Work History
Swiss Krono - Assistant Sanding Operator/Sander Operator
City, STATE, 09/2019 - Current

As a sanding assistant i had many different task in order to keep the sander running . When problems occur i troubleshoot the line where ever the problem occurs. I used to use the HMI to control the line in the different areas i need to control. At the infeed where the stacks come in, I control the trolley that go and get the stacks of wood and bring it the infeed. In order to get a stack you must know the source(where the stack is) and the destination(where the stack is going), in order to get the correct stack. Once the stack is in the most i would do is watch a few boards go onto the line once the operator put the commission in from the control room. I might have to adjust the height by moving the photo lens up or down depending on how the board is going onto the line. As an assistant i would have to load protection boards onto the protection board station. Protection boards go into the stacking boxes to protect the boards from getting damaged. I would also have to build some good stacks of protection boards so they would load smoothly an won't cause any problems for the rest of the shift. And if anything went wrong with the line or the sanders i would assist the operator in anyway possible i order to keep the downtime at a bare minimum. We would clean on the regular and on down days. Once i proved my self as a great assistant i got promoted to be a Sander Operator where my tasked changed. Now i would be in charge of communicating with the team leader and the assistant and the packing line operator. I would be in charge of making sure all the order numbers i enter into the system are correct and matching the right stacks. Making sure all the downtime is accounted for, knowing the location of the stacks in intermediate storage,on the floor and the highbay system. The operator is in charge of entering the commissions for the different stacks that come into the infeed in order to run a stack. The operator is also responsible for setting the sander height to the different thickness of board that's being ran. Once the sander height is set and the speed of the sanders are set all you do then is adjust the sander heads on each sander as need be.

Georgia-Pacific - Clean-Up Associate/Finishing Line Operator
City, STATE, 05/2018 - 09/2019

When i was on the clean up crew up we used to clean any area of the plant that needed cleaning. We cleaned the press pit every other day. We used to clean only two levels of the pit on every other day. We would clean the roof on the second level by shoveling the wood shavings into this chute and the conveyor then takes the debris up stairs and dropped it into a hopper, once that level is clean we move on to the last level. Once we get on the last level one person gets on each side of the stairs and we start in the middle of the stairs and the person on the west side of the stairs blow straight down with the air wand while the person on the east side lays on the stairs and spray under the conveyor at a downward angle. Once we work our way to the bottom and blow everything off the edge onto the floor we go to the top and repeat the process until under the conveyor is clean and we get to the floor level. Then we shovel the shavings up once we get everything we move on to another daily task. I also used to drive the floor sweeper to clean the floors of the plant. Driving the forklift was a big part of the job as well. Cleaning on the forming line required use to wear a respirator so we wouldn't breathe in harmful chemicals. When i got promoted to work on the finishing line i was in charge of helping troubleshoot the line when problems occur. I was in charge of reloading material in the strapper machine to ensure that the line keeps running. I was also driving the forklift frequently, moving different size stacks to their desired location.

Scotsman Ice Systems - Foamer/Machine Operator
City, STATE, 05/2011 - 05/2018

As a foam operator, depending on the area i was in i had many different task, in order to do the job of each area. But in all foam areas i use to conduct a foam ratio shot test. The foam gun has two sides, side A(white foam), and side B(brown foam). For the test i spray side A in a bag, then i spray side B in a bag, then I spray both sides in a bag together. Then i get the weight of each side and use the foam ratio formula to get the percentage of each side.

As a machine operator i was in charge of operating a 460 roto ferry machine. This is a machine with four spinning arms that are attached to these circular grids that hold cast iron molds that got cooked and cooled down. A powder like substance are placed inside the molds to get cooked to form the shape of the mold. There was 3 different type of powders that we put in the molds each mold had a specific type of powder that went in them. The machine was operated with manual buttons that spin and rotate the arms in many directions.
