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.
