    TASKS:

    1. Mounts negative and plate in camera that exposes exposed plate to artificial light through photographic negative, thus transferring image.

    2. Transfers image from master plate to unexposed plate and immerses plate in developing solution to develop image on plate.

    3. Transfers images by hand and covers surface of plates with photosensitive chemical, using brush, and allows plate to dry.

    4. Lowers vacuum frame onto plate-film assembly to establish contact between positive-negative film and plate, and sets timer to expose plate.

    5. Removes plate-film assembly from vacuum frame and places exposed plate in automatic processor to develop image and dry plate.

    6. Mixes and applies chemical-based developing solution to plates and replenishes solution in processor to maintain it in working order.

    7. Examines unexposed photographic plate to detect flaws or foreign particles prior to printing pattern of aperture masks on sensitized steel.

    8. Examines plate, using light-box and microscope to detect flaws, verify conformity with master plate, and measure dot size and center.

    9. Installs and aligns plates in printing case.

    10. Repairs defective plates with missing dots, using photographic touch-up tool and ink.

    11. Punches holes in light-sensitive plate and inserts pins in holes to prepare plate for contact with positive or negative film.

    12. Places plate in vacuum frame to align positives or negatives with each other and places masking paper over uncovered areas.
