The primary rotation tasks consist of running a machine (AMI, ANDI, HOM AMI), On-line Repair for AMI, ANDI, HOM AMI, and Packing Cell (Lines A, B & C). Tampo Reprint work is performed at a separate station as needed. Tracking on bases is an additional rare job duty which is generally performed in two hour increments.
