Design Grp

Laminator

My main duties at Design Grp were hand lay up moulds, making architectural products eg door canopys, window bays, tank covers, tank containers, slate panels and chimney stacks, pots and balcony covers for high rise flats. I had to read basic architectural drawings and measure the amount of matt, gel coat and resin needed to lay up product. I also had to repair broken moulds and make new moulds and prepare them for production eg using release agents to break mould in and wax mould for easy release every time mould was used. I also used diamond cutter for finishing product or for joining larger products together. There was some usage of bonding pastes to add insulation to certain products and I was the only employee with a counter balance forklift licence and it would be my duty to load and unload products like resin tanks, acetone barrels, gel coat barrels and finished Grp products ready for delivery to customers. It was also my duty to ensure tools were cleaned properly and stored in clean acetone so that they would be ready to use for next job.

Carron Bathrooms

Grp sprayer ( Chopper Gun )

My main role during the time I worked at Carron Bathrooms was a sprayer using an MVP chopper spray gun, spraying chopped roving and resin onto plastic bath shells, shower trays and free standing shells in a spray booth on a turntable. The sprayed baths were different weights depending on the style of bath, and a maximiser was used to measure the amount of roving and resin sprayed on shells to determine specific weight. Once the shells were sprayed, a team of rollers would lift bath from the booth to a heated area and rolled and left to dry. This process was repeated in a fast paced production line environment during an eight hour shift. My other responsibilities were to maintain upkeep of gun and make sure the gun ran efficiently to ensure production ran at highest level. I also had to make sure there was enough catalyst and gun flush in the system to run for a full days production and changing rubber and blades when needed. I also had to keep spray booth clean and change filters when they were covered with fibreglass. Before starting time for production I had to do a test to make sure catalyst and resin were mixed so that the sprayed product would cure or dry properly.
