Supplier Reports, Part 2 (CONT’D FROM PAGE 28)

“While the engraved surface of the glue applicator roll- ers is critical, so are the specifications of TIR (total indicat- ed runout), taper, balance, bearing surfaces, gear steps, keyways, threads, end rings, etc. ARC International ad- dresses all of these critical steps and provides photogra- phy to customers after incoming inspection. “For more information, contact Barry King, ARC’s Na- tional Regional Sales Manager at bking@arcinternational. com. To schedule a pick-up, contact an ARC customer ser- vice representative at 800-526-4569. ARC International has two manufacturing facilities in Charlotte, North Caroli- na and Las Vegas, Nevada.” BAUMER HHS Krefeld, Germany: Thomas Walther reports, “The packag- ing industry is undergoing a significant transformation, piv-

With hexagonal tools, only three walls intersect at the post, and since the walls on these tools are already thin- ner, any wear is minimal. Proper starch application is more easily maintained with the larger opening providing more efficient release and the lesser depth allowing for easier cleaning. The SS300, with less depth than the SS100 and SS200 tools, for A-flute, B-flute and C-flute applications, is specifically designed for E-flute, F-flute and other mi- cro-flute applications that require less starch but have a greater need to maintain a consistent laydown. Like the move from quadrangular anilox cells to hexagonal anilox cells in the 1990s proved to be advantageous, the same applies to glue rollers. “To provide greater longevity on engraved glue appli- cator rollers, ARC manufactures them with a cladded stain- less-steel surface versus conventional rollers in which the engraving is done directly into the carbon steel base or an electroplated copper surface, and then plated with .004” to .006” of chrome. On these chrome rollers, just a small scratch can lead to extensive rust, corrosion, and a shorter roller life. The cladded stainless-steel surface comes with a 5-year guarantee against rust, corrosion or delamination. This surface has become the standard in the corrugated industry. When supplied with tight tolerance meter roll- ers with optional surfaces, the ‘matched set’ provides the most consistent starch application possible.

oting towards sustainability and envi- ronmental friendliness. At the heart of this shift is the enhancement of recy- cling processes, especially in the re- covery of fibers from paper products. “A prime example of these efforts is the 4evergreen initiative, a coalition dedicated to maximizing fiber yield in

paper recycling. 4evergreen’s mission is to boost the recy- cling rate of fibers, thereby making a substantial contribu- tion to environmental protection.


PRINTCHEK REPRESENTS A NEW FRONTIER IN PRINT QUALITY ASSURANCE FOR THE CORRUGATED CARDBOARD INDUSTRY PrintChek uses a series of line scan cameras to capture an image of each sheet across its entire span before being die-cut. Every sheet's size, rotation, and print quality are then compared to your set “golden standard” to identify defects as small as 2mm like skew, spots, hickeys, smears, color deviation, missing print, and more. Using PrintChek in conjunction with MeasurementChek allows you to remotely monitor production and quality statistics which you can then export via Excel for statistical analysis.
