Plastic Winding Cores

The winding of sensitive materials requires precise winding cores. Even the slightest unevenness could cause tremendous trouble for the production process.

Benefits & options

The longstanding expertise of Sonoco Plastics allows producing winding cores within the lowest tolerances as well as precise roundness and straightness. 

Our cores are available in various dimensions and plastic materials such as PE, PP, PS and ABS to provide any mechanical characteristics required — from rigid to high-impact.

Film Market

Produced by injection moulding up to a length of 2,265 mm. This is worldwide unique and sets the highest standards in terms of roundness and straightness. Our high-quality extruded cores can be delivered in nearly all lengths. Our cores are available in ABS, ABS/SAN, PS, HIPS, PE and PP. Standard sizes 3” and 6”.

Tape Market

For wound materials in small widths such as tapes, we manufacture highly precise injection-moulded winding cores. Using a special production process, we set the standard in surface flatness and tight tolerances.

Paper Market

We have developed our unique adaptor core especially for the paper production and converting industry: By combining a high strength with a lower weight (compared to standard paperboard cores), our customers are achieving 200+ cycles of reusability, leading to significant cost reductions.

For the small widths used for cigarette paper, we offer specially designed solutions.
