Sonoco Alcore

Torque Resistance & Critical Speed Evaluation

Sonoco Alcore focuses on the interaction between our customer’s products and our cores

We are committed to working with our customers to optimise production processes.

Torque Resistance

During paper winding and unwinding a core needs to withstand the forces transmitted by the chucks during acceleration and deceleration. By testing torque resistance we ensure the core doesn’t slip and isn’t damaged by the chucks.

Critical Speed

A roll should rotate at high speed with low vibrations. We have the capability to test the critical speed of your operations and design a core that manages the fastest unwinding speeds with low vibrations.

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.
