Vertical storage vs storage with plastic belts

Recently we got the possibility to offer a differrent kind of storage and internal transport system for the corrugated industry. A different way to handle the board from the corrugator to the converting area. The first type of this storage system was installed in Barcelona, Spain, at Cartisa Castellbisbal plant. The success has been outstanding. The small free horitzontal space and the high investment cost that a traditional installation with plastic flat belts became, made the decision a lot easier.


Corrugator Automatization

The labor costs and quality demands force our customers to obtain high levels of productivity and to install control systems and the have fully automatic corrugators. On the following blog entries we will comment some of the crucial aspects to improve a corrugator.


How inks influenece the water treatment station?

The quite new fast drying inks allow higher productivities on the converting section, can they create problems at the depuration station? what can we do?

Really, the problem are not the inks, the problem remains on the prodcuts that we use to clean the anilox rolls when using this powerfull inks. They give us high contents of nitrogen...


Positive side of the vertical storage systems

You must cosider that we talk about vertical storage systems for stacks of sheets without pallet underneath, to store between the corrugator and the converting area.
The main positive aspects of this type of storage are as follows:

1.- 90% less installed power in the factory for the sheet storage system for the same amount of board stored. You only see the servomotors of the robots and no photoeyes inside the vertical structure.

2.- Much lower maintenance at lower cost and less complexity.

3.- Much higher storage capacity fo the same available area.


Waste of your corrugator… look at the numbers

Do you know how much does it cost for you 0,5% of waste at your corrugator?  With the actual economic crisis, it is important to know where do we loose our money. Checking the points where the producitivity and efficiency are lost is crucial. In factories where there is an important production of heavy doublewall mix; 0,5% of waste reduction represents a lot of money; much more than the cost of the whole starch consumption. Savings on glue, splice tape or low quality papers can be a loss instead of benefit.


Start Up of the technical blog

Attention box makers,

Long time ago, the members at Waraltec Group decided to create a platform to share all our technical doubts or questions with our customers.

Now, it is on its way; we will see how it works.
