Case Study

Improving re-use ratio and runability

Our customer wanted to understand the re-use ratio of the tissue cores within their production process and reduce their inventory levels.

We implemented our SR-350 Intellicore tissue core, which utilises RFID technology to track core usage throughout the mill, installing four RFID reading points within the mill, which included first stock point, after converting, return-to-stock point and the end of the production process to allow us to replenish the stock levels as required. Sonoco Alcore assumes all core inventory responsibilities, making it easier for our customers.

As a result, we reduced the stock levels, freeing up working capital for the customer, and generated cost savings, as less space for inventory and labor are required. The SR-350 improved re-use ratio and runability, decreased vibrations and reduced machine stops.
