Sonoco Alcore


Outside Diameter Stiffness Case Study

Who: Stainless steel producer in Germany

Product: Stainless steel

Problem: This customer wanted an optimised radial core that could manage the radial pressure of stainless steel and cope with the demands of expanded unwinding shafts.

Solution: Sonoco Alcore’s technical manager and sales manager completed a site visit to understand the customer’s production process and current core usage.

Result: We were able to provide raw material cost savings by specifying a core based on outside diameter stiffness rather than the traditional flat crush.

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.

Sonoco Alcore will purchase Mondi's existing core equipment and then replace it with newer state of the art technology equipment. In addition, Sonoco Alcore will manage 28 employees responsible for core production on site.
