To set up tooling in and to ensure that the injection moulding process is controlled and monitored in such a way as to provide products that conform to quality and production targets.
Ensuring that the controls on a particular machine or process are set up correctly. The main function of the job is to ensure that all the equipment and machinery is set up correctly to manufacture the product and that these conditions are maintained to the same standard throughout the production period.
The work involves setting and changing of mould tools the relevant moulding machine. Problem solving and analytical skills are required to adjust the controls and settings to ensure the process continues to operate to specification. Knowledge of materials being processed into a product is essential, as the settings will vary dependent upon the material being processed.

Notes from the MD:
“It’s a busy department and although not guaranteed, Setters will generally do plenty of overtime during the week and on Saturday mornings if they want to. Working just 10 hours overtime per week would be additional +£9,136 per year, or 15 hours overtime would be +£13,704 extra per year (£36,843 p/a). We have 80 employees, and every opportunity for advancement within the business in the future.”
