I concur with the two Roberts (Lauriston and Kay): Sometimes ya gotta get a printed copy out the door immediately, and the only way to do it is to print and bind it yourself.

It's part of my job. It only comes up once or twice a year, and it's typically only one or two copies, but it happens.

The other requirements are fairly demanding.

It says, "Performs Technical Publications administrative duties, such as filing, copying, binding, and archiving, as required and assigned."
That's pretty standard for small-run / custom hardware where hard copies are provided. Somebody orders a unit, you print or copy the manual and bind it. Given the potential legal exposure with medical devices it's probably better practice to have docs responsible for that than having a minimum-wage clerk do it and maybe send the wrong doc.
