Meaning of 'Occupation' in Lodz Ghetto #poland #general

Terry Ashton
 

In the Lodz Ghetto records from USHMM, a relative’s occupation is described as ‘Scherer.’ I have used Google translate for a literal meaning which is ‘clipper/shearer’ but that doesn’t seem to make much sense. Any suggestions as to what the likely occupation may have been whilst working in the factory named below?
