Post- warp

Inspired by Star Wars and Harry Potter 😊 It has been a very strange year for all in 2020. But also, an interesting start in 2021 to have some time to reflect on post-warp. We all know how to handle warp, this within the limitations of the material combinations used for a certain corrugated compositionContinue reading “Post- warp”

The cure to all corrugator diseases

When I was young, every time I felt a bit under the weather, my mom gave me “Elixir d’Anvers”. It was the cure to all illnesses. If it was a flu or an indigestion or whatever… “Elexir d’Anvers” took away the pain. I even heard that farmers where giving it to their horses when theyContinue reading “The cure to all corrugator diseases”

Cross company cooperation at customer

I recently had the honour to work together at a customer to do trial runs and operator process training. We teamed up with two specialists Mr H. Medemblik from BHS corrugated and with Mr D. Murfitt from Crespel & Deiters (starch specialists). This resulted in a very successful cooperation and very good light weight boardContinue reading “Cross company cooperation at customer”

Litholaminators with in line single facer.

These machines are awesome! Especially for a corraddict since these machines are so open – unlike the single facer with negative or positive pressure – that they allow you to see and measure everything. One would expect that just because these machines are so accessible that they would be in a very good mechanical state, butContinue reading “Litholaminators with in line single facer.”

Even glue application

 One of the hidden problems in corrugators are uneven glue application along the width and even sometimes in machine direction. Let’s concentrate here on the doublebacker glue machines. Luckily there is such thing as a wet film glue metering gauge that helps you checking the evenness of the glue application. The instrument is simple andContinue reading “Even glue application”

It all starts with parallelism.

The ideal we want to get in corrugating are  flat sheets, no delamination, no wash-boarding and no honeycomb. To obtain above one has to have a corrugator which is in a perfect state. And this has nothing to do with the age of a corrugator but all to do with maintenance. People spend millions onContinue reading “It all starts with parallelism.”
