Job Description for Offset Press Operator

Offset press operators have a hands-on position operating heavy machinery in production lines and factories (typically involving paper packaging). The offset press is used to create packaging for products that includes the large-scale production of consumables. To operate an offset press, an individual must be able to use a computer to run the program controlling the machine; the computer is programmed by the operator, who determines the exact specifications required and sends the commands to the machine itself, which begins printing and cutting patterns.
