Optimisations

Start-up Stripes

Problem

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.

Solution

We provided an optimised core with a start-up stripe.

Result

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

Problem

Our customer manufactures polyester film, which can wrinkle when wrapped on a core.

Solution

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.

Result

Our customer doesn’t have to worry about wrinkles in the film.

Case Studies

Our Products at Work

Hi-Radius Core

Our Hi-Radius core has a smooth, rounded edge on the unwinding end, which allows the producer to avoid using plastic caps. This solution is especially effective if our customer is spinning and texturizing the yarn in-house.
