  • Manual handling required, moving stock around the warehouse, some barrows are empty whilst other are full of fabric.
  • To pack, roll and seal the fabrics using simple machinery.
  • Not an intense machine role as the machine is very simple to use with 3 buttons to operate
  • A busy department must be able to work in a fast pace role as this is a fast role when the machine is in process.
