Winding & Knife Cutting of Tape/Label Cores for Tape & Label Manufacturing
(Click on thumbnail to enlarge)
At Western Container, we currently produce over 500,000 tape and label cores per month for a variety of customers. Our high capacity production capabilities combined with fast turnaround times allow customers a great deal of flexibility, including the ability to get the cores they need without carrying extensive inventory at their facility. As procurement specialists we ensure that raw material is always available to fill short orders to keep up with customer demand. Our quality engineers spend extensive time on the floor ensuring all customer specifications are met.
The product highlighted here is a recycled Kraft paper core with an inner diameter of 3.025”, a length of 4.125”, and a wall thickness of 0.124”. We produce this product with black, red, blue, and white, MG Kraft paper liners, according to customer specifications. The cores are wound to create the desired wall thickness, cut on in-line knife cutting machines, and re-cut to refine the precision of the cut, holding tolerances as tight as ±0.005”.
We understand how critical precise, consistent wall thicknesses are to tape performance in automated machinery and conduct thorough testing using data collected from manufacturing machinery, to verify conformance to all specifications. We manufacture approximately 100,000 of these cores per month with a lead time of 2 to 3 days.
