Paper cores are long cardboard tubes which have high strength to external pressure and is used for many applications that span from paper towel rolls, chart rolls to cable reels and other things in between. Industrial cores are manufactured on the basis on demand since each customer could have different necessity and the dimensions vary with respect to the demand of the customer. Paper cores are also called as industrial tubes, spiral wound paper cores and fibreboard cores. Although industrial paper cores are used for the purposes based on the customer, they are broadly used for storing, shipping, spinning and also are used for closures of plastic, wooden and metal.
Primary and extensive uses of paper cores:
In polyester film and audio tapes, cores with polished surface are used. This helps in the rotation of the disc inside without the tape being tampered or damaged during the process.
Paper cores are used in self adhesive tapes and flexible film winding. Paper core are given a polished outer skin and then the adhesive tape is rolled outward to it. At times the exterior surface of the core is given a polish of plastic or epoxy for better usage and handling.
Wool and other natural fibre materials are wound around a paper core at the end of the process. The entire transportation process of the wool is often based on the paper core it is attached with. The end product of the wool is wound around the paper core which is often given a rough exterior for better grip to the wounding wool. This is in turn used to store carpet yarn, denim and coir mat.
Paper cores are used for the process of jute winding. Jute s processed with the use of several cores attached parallel to each other and hence stretching the raw jute material and also wounding them back. Jute winding is a meticulous process and paper core used are constantly changed so that they don’t lose the exterior roughness.
Tiny engineering goods and parts are stored in a medium sized core so that there are no damages caused to the goods whilst packing and transportation. Paper core serve as an excellent transportation material for goods that require to maintain its precision and balance. One such product is the spirit level which could be damaged when transported in metal or other containers and hence it is manufactured with paper core for transportation purposes.
Another such engineering tool is the submersible pump. The submersible pump is a tool of the motor which pumps water from beneath the ground level. This pump is a component of the motor which is long and cylindrical in shape and hence paper core is useful for the manufacture of it. Submersible pumps are packed in the paper core initially and then wound around with perforated materials to avoid damage. The dimensions of the paper core depend upon the size of the submersible pump that is required to store and be transported.
The manufacture and the process of printing the newspaper abundantly uses paper core. It is required from the thinning of paper to finally separating them in numbers. Paper core used in the newspaper process are usually at the two ends of the manufacturing unit, one in the breaking of the paper and drying it through rolling it with uniformly roughened exterior paper cores.
Scope of Paper Cores:
Paper cores market is expected to grow due to increasing demand of the paper cores by various industry such as textile, paper mills, adhesive tapes, wire etc. during the forecast period. Paper cores are used for packaging of material as well as winding of products for storage and distribution. Depending on the intended use paper cores are made by different materials such as less durable cardboard or paper used for manufacturing paper cores for toilet paper, winding of films or paper towels, whereas heavy duty thick cardboard used for electrical, textile or fabric industry.
Depend on the application type paper cores are available in different diameter, length and thickness. Global paper cores market totally depends on packaging industry. It gains popularity in packaging of beverages such as alcoholic as well as non-alcoholic rather than it is used for winding and rewinding of products such as textile, fax rolls, toilet tissue paper, newsprint, kraft paper, polyester films, metallized films etc. If the demand of the above listed products increase it directly affect the global paper cores market positively.
Growth in demand for the global paper core market is expected to grow strongly for several reasons. One of the significant factors which contribute in the growth of the paper cores market is increasing demand of the product by various industry such as textile, adhesive tapes, and wires etc. Moreover, paper cores are fully recyclable, reusable, and environmentally friendly which also contributes in the significant growth of the global paper core market. Paper core has a huge potential of growth in the packaging market for providing the compact packaging of beverages including alcoholic and non-alcoholic.
With the basis of end usage, global paper cores market is segmented into:
This is predominantly the most useful sector for the paper core companies are the beverage packing industry. Most alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are packed in strong paper core.
Adhesive tapes are wound about a usually small paper core which is an advantage for disposal when compared with plastic cores. Paper core are simple manufacturing components that do not require much of an end capital.
Foils are spun about a paper core as the end product of their manufacturing process. This makes the waster generated by the foils to be considerately environment friendly.
The primary advantage of paper core is the extent to which it is environmentally friendly. It is what makes it worth while to choose for upon other ways to store and wound around. Paper core is also highly resizable and the dimensions could massively be changed with respect to customer’s requirements.
