Advance Packaging Corporation is seeking a Die Cut Operator.

Our Graphic team has a special group of operators that are specially trained to operator our die cutter as a second function of our graphic press.  And our teams have won national and international awards for their printed boxes.  Every order is challenge to beat competitors around the world!  But what good is a pretty award winning box without a perfect die cut?  It’s not an award winning box.

Die Cut Operators work in a team to set up the machine for each order, each order is custom designed and many orders are run each shift. These machines are not just monitored, but require changes for each order.  They will custom fit each die onto the machine and make special adjustments for each order to ensure a crisp, clean and exact cut, free of raggedy edges and torn corners.

The product must be quality inspected as produced throughout the order run to ensure quality. Not just one person is responsible for these quality checks. It takes all members of the team to perform them and make appropriate adjustments.

These jobs are detailed in their tasks. People successful in these jobs are professionals in their field.
