Like the M-Core™ series, the M-Core™HT is produced using Sonoco Alcore’s patented Wide Ply Technology and innovative manufacturing process. When you combine this with the specifically engineered design of the M-Core™HT you experience a core that reduces centre bursts and elongation during the winding/unwinding process. By specifically reducing these issues, the M-Core™HT increases productivity and reduces downtime at the paper mill. 

In addition, the M-Core™HT improves runnability, eliminates web breaks caused by excessive vibrations, and delivers excellent dimensional stability. The benefits delivered by the M-Core™HT also positively impact end users in the printing industry by increasing the efficiency of their operations. 

Benefits in Brief
  • Increased productivity due to decreased centre bursts
  • Significant cost savings – less wasted product
  • Safe unwinding speed can be reached with a smaller amount of rest paper
  • Improved runnability in the paper mill winder
  • Eliminates web breaks induced by excessive vibrations
  • Excellent dimensional stability in variable storage and transportation conditions
  • Tolerates greater bending deformation if driven close to resonance
  • 100% recyclable

Case Study

Reducing centre bursts with M-Core HT

Our client’s lightweight coated paper product was experiencing 50 claims per year as a result of centre bursts.

After switching to the M-Core HT they no longer experience centre burst or elongation issues, which provided €150,000 in cost savings in the first year.
