History in Film – Hand Finishing

In today’s automated world, there seems to be a machine to complete almost any task. However, in our Finishing Department there are some jobs where there is no replacement for the human hand. Since 1963, when Optichrome was formed, right up to today we have always had a very busy Hand Finishing Department.

We were thrilled to discover on the Optichrome Reels, that they had filmed the ladies at work, hand collating. In the video you can see the incredible dexterity of the Hand Finishing team members, it is astounding.
