Sonoco Alcore


Tape and label cores

Sonoco Alcore offers tape cores with a variety of inside diameters and wall thicknesses to meet your requirements.

In-house printing

Sonoco Alcore's in-house printing and graphics capabilities allow us to not only perfectly print your branding on the inside of tape cores, but also to deliver over 1,000 different types of outside ply liners and branding options. These outside ply liners can be matched to different material needs including silicon, foam and various types of films.

A dedicated tape core line

Our plant in Tavernerio, Italy, has a fully automated and dedicated tape core line where we produce cores with an inside diameter of 76.4 mm and a wall thickness of 2.8 mm. Our history and expertise in tape core production deliver consistent, high quality tape cores.

We also:

  • Source raw material from our Cirie paper mill to provide coreboard with a low moisture content and reliable strength properties
  • Ensure consistent core dimensions with our standardised and automated line
  • Standardise packaging of corrugated boxes and euro pallets so tape cores arrive undamaged and ready-to-use
  • Meet branding needs with our in-house graphics and printing

We also produce tape cores at our Caserta, Italy plant.

Case Studies

Our Products at Work

Hi-Radius Core

Our Hi-Radius core has a smooth, rounded edge on the unwinding end, which allows the producer to avoid using plastic caps. This solution is especially effective if our customer is spinning and texturizing the yarn in-house.

Sonoco Alcore will purchase Mondi's existing core equipment and then replace it with newer state of the art technology equipment. In addition, Sonoco Alcore will manage 28 employees responsible for core production on site.
