Black and white photograph of a gelatine barrel tipper in the east wing of Building 2, Emulsion Department, at the Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd factory, Coburg circa 1963.
This equipment was designed by Kodak engineers for the purpose of transferring the gelatine from the barrels or drums into portable bins from which it is weighed. The tipper was equipped with suction hoods to reduce dust problems.
Part of a photographic album produced by Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd, Coburg, containing approximately 70 black and white 8 x 10 inch photographic prints of the Emulsion Department; plans of the plant; colour photographs of the Emulsion Department management staff and Development and Production Supervision staff.
