Accurate™ Top Strong for maximum converting performance
25.12.2017 - Virgin Fibre Cartonboard, Innovations / Investments
High converting productivity of a cartonboard quality is essential for offering a real competitive edge. In the virgin fibre segment, our new light-weight GC2 quality Accurate™ Top Strong from the Eerbeek mill in the Netherlands is the right choice for maximum converting efficiency with excellent printing properties.
Full steam ahead to 100 % speed
Clean surfaces and edges without dust and fibre particles are among the most important criteria when choosing cartonboard. They are essential for achieving top performance in the production process.
Dust and fibre particles severely compromise the conversion process, because they can …
• contaminate printing plate or rubber blanket, causing more washing cycles.
• noticeably lower the quality of the printed image and cause contamination of unprinted surfaces.
• require a reduction of the die-cutting speed.
• significantly slow the gluing process.
• cause interruptions on the packaging line, when a glue seam opens.
• lead to more rejects.
Thanks to the optimised fibre composition of Accurate™ Top Strong, this cartonboard sets new converting standards and the printing performance per hour can be substantially increased. Marco Lideo, Product Sales Director Folding Carton Industry Business Unit Sheet-fed at Bobst: “During the die-cutting, folding and gluing process, it is particularly important not to limit machine performance because of dust. This is essential for achieving the highest possible box quality and maximum productivity. With Accurate™ Top Strong, our die-cutters and folder-gluers can reach their full potential.“
Apart from its excellent converting properties and performance on the packing line, Accurate™ Top Strong compels with exceedingly high stiffness values, which give it excellent packaging stability. Another impressive feature is the outstanding image quality that is possible with Accurate™ Top Strong thanks to optimum visual properties: high degree of brightness (90 % Elrepho), high smoothness PPS (1 µm), brilliant gloss (> 45 %), and a very attractive white reverse side. The cover of this newsletter is made of Accurate™ Top Strong and illustrates this impressively. With a Robinson value of ≤ 1.0, Accurate™ Top Strong also satisfies the highest sensory requirements, which makes it the number one choice for food packaging, where odour and/or taste neutrality is of the utmost importance. This new GC2 quality by MM Karton is available with a freeze treatment and a freeze-grease treatment, so it is ideal for chilled or frozen foods as well as greasy products. With its perfect visual properties, Accurate™ Top Strong is also suitable for premium packaging solutions in the personal care and pharmaceuticals sector.
