Class Code 4351

Photoengraving

Class code 4351 is used for employees that work in a photoengraving facility, and involves the process of reproducing graphic materials. This is typically accomplished when a graphic image is transferred photomechanically to a surface in etched relief for printing. Employees would be responsible for various operations, including: placing negatives over a sensitized metal plate, exposing the plate to arc light, applying acid resisting substances, immersing and brush-coating plates in acid solution, using rotating and beveling machines, and mounting plates to wood or metal bases. Other processes that are covered within the scope of this classification include taking photographs and developing negatives that will be used in photoengraving. In addition, engravers that are required to complete any finish work, such as hand engraving, would also be included.

Exclusions to this class code would include newspaper publishers that do photoengraving as part of their publishing operations and employees that do photoengraving for print shops. Platemaking would also be excluded, when it uses a completely enclosed automated plate processor.
