One of our customers, a film producer, started a line that ran at very high speeds. During start up, they manually attached tape to catch the film. Due to the large number of changeovers during production, this process became time consuming and inefficient.
We provided an optimised core with a start-up stripe.
We decreased the time it took to manually attach the tape and make a changeover, making the production process more efficient and decreasing labor costs.
Outside Surface Cores
Our customer manufactures polyester film, which can wrinkle when wrapped on a core.
Consistent quality is imperative to produce high performance film cores that don’t wrinkle. Our centrally-located dedicated line produces cores with excellent straightness and waviness. In this specific case, we use a release lacquer on our QS1550 core, ensuring no fibers attach to the core.
Our customer doesn’t have to worry about wrinkles in the film.
