How we’re helping our customers
Radial strength optimisation
Our customer, a protective film producer, was experiencing core crushing because the core they were using was not optimised for radial strength.
After field testing, we used our patented radial tester to ensure we achieved the required radial strength.
Our customer saved €300,000 after optimising their cores.
Sonoco Alcore Dricore® rain-resistant core
Our customer produces silage film, which is often kept outside in damp conditions. At the time they were using plastic cores, which can have issues such as high vibrations during winding, as well as the hassle and cost of collecting and recycling plastic cores.
We replaced our customer’s plastic cores with our Dricore water-resistant paper core that can be kept outside in damp and wet conditions for up to 20 days without losing dimensional stability and performance.
Our customer’s runnability improved due to less vibration during winding. Additionally, our Dricore paper core is recyclable and less expensive than plastic cores.
