At 3:00 a.m. on January 9, 2018, Employee #1 was troubleshooting the ink cylinde r on a 5054 Flexo Printing Machine, manufactured by the Ward Machinery Company. The ink cylinder was guarded by a magnetic interlocking system that stopped the movement of the cylinders when it was opened. The magnetic interlocking system was broken at the switch, and was not working. Employee #1 attempted to discove r if there was pressure being applied to the feeder device that was used to appl y ink on the cylinder. As he opened the guard, he placed his fingers on the feed er to check it. The ink cylinders were still rotating and the dry screen caught Employee #1's finger between the dry screen and the ink roller. The employees f inger was amputated to the first knuckle. He was hospitalized for his injury.
