Corrugated Containers Waste Management Series: DVD 2


Misalignment Waste

Misalignment is defined as one or more of the components of a corrugated sheet not being the same width after sitting and scoring. This 23 minute DVD specifies an excellence goal for reducing this waste. It then shows operators how to identify causes of misalignment problems whether machinery, paperboard or roll mounting. The DVD shows techniques operators can use to identify out –of-line machine components if the machinery is the problem.

Waste from Warp
This 32 minute DVD examines how to reduce waste from warp (the amount of bend or twist in a sheet of corrugated board). Warped sheets frequently create jam ups, quality problems, and down time, and are a major cause of overall plant waste. The program identifies the hidden costs of warp, the three different types and common causes of each and presents cost effective solutions. By following the procedures outlined in the DVD, your plant should be able to lower waste due to warp to achieve the excellence goal of .2% of tons consumed.

Side Trim, End Trim and Scheduling Waste
Side and end trim account for the second largest percentage of controllable corrugator waste. This 33 minute DVD examines the potential causes of this waste, as well as how proper corrugator scheduling can affect overall waste control. It explores cut length variation problems and solutions on mechanical and direct drive knives, the influences on side trim, and how to deal with each. A chart of excellence goals achieved by the top 20% of corrugated plans in the U.S. is included to help you establish goals for your plant.

Core and Splice Waste
This 16 minute DVD is designed to help a plant develop and implement a core and splice waste reduction program. It identifies factors which contribute to excessive waste such as how equipment is used and maintained, and the condition of the paper and its core. The DVD specifically covers roll stands, skewing devices, brakes, tension control, chucks, automatic and manual splicing. It suggests practical solutions based on the experiences of various boxplants over many years and offers guidelines to help your plant set realistic waste reduction goals.
