How Much Money Can Be Saved by Using Splicer?

For many carton factories there is such a mistake, corrugated production equipment equipped with the best, but the splicer is not important just with simple paper function, there is no need to buy the best. Is this really the case? Especially at present, the original paper price fluctuations frequently, matching your carton factory with a device that can effectively "save paper" is like having a good house keeper at home. So you can have more confidence and strength to break out of the predicament inthe face of a lack of paper, paper prices rise in the general situation. 

Therefore, "reduce loss" is actually the most important reference standard for customers to purchase equipment.


Small problems erode "hard-earned money" of carton factory

In the actual production process of the carton factory, the situation is much more complex than expected, especially in our domestic market, in the brutal price competition, many cardboard manufacturers have greatly reduced the paper standard, the quality of the original paper varies:

1. There are some paper rolls in the factory when the joint is not strong, or even the paper roll joint is not glued at all.

2. In some paper rolls, there are more than one joint, the joint position of the paper roll is not marked, or the two sides of the paper roll have different tightness, the water distribution of the paper roll is not uniform, dampness and a series of problems.

These are seemingly trivial problems, but they are slowly eating into investors' hard-earned money.

As is known to all, some paper roll after being produced, because of quality control, the same paper roll has a different tightness on both left and right, or due to improper storage of paper (usually at the bottom of paper roll, one end of the contact with the ground because of be affected with damp, and two paper roll on the surface stress, the paper roll at one end of the ground becomes larger indiameter and is often referred to as the "elephant leg").

Such paper rolls in the drying cylinder surface due to the left and right tension is not uniform, the heat of the paper in unit time is not the same, the temperature of the paper is not the same, resulting in the result is bound to be bad fitting or cardboard warped.

Paper Fracture during the production costs 100-120$/time

For a variety of reasons in the normal production process, paper fracture often occurs For high speed corrugated board line,paper fracture is very fatal, just like the suddenly burst tire in highway driving. The waste of high-speed paper is huge, not only paper waste, but also labor costs. Industry experts have calculated that a paper fracture accident its comprehensive cost of 100-120$. Each production plant is easy to count the number of times a year paper fracture, so as to know the annual loss in paper fracture accidents.

Butt Roll Management and Control

In addition to the problem of paper breakage, the butt roll management and control has become one of the important factors that the carton factory considers when purchasing the paper splicer. As is known to all, the base paper after use will more or less form a small butt roll. The small roll formed by the base paper after the site use is generally placed onthe edge of the cardboard line, which is convenient for site operators to use. However, the use of small paper rolls will increase the amount of labor of the field operators, resulting in the loss of the use process and the management of the base paper warehouse chaos, increase the frequency of paper in the field, paper management chaos and other phenomena, so as to increase the production cost.

The adoption of excellent splicer, can achieve "Splicer paper core", greatly improve the use of base paper, reduce the cost.

Why do carton factories pay more and more attention to the function of “Zero-tail” ?

Through out the current market of splicer equipment, whether the zero-tail paper function can be achieved becomes a reference standard equipment for the carton factory to purchase. Here we will give you ananalysis of why the carton factory attaches great importance to zero-tail splicer.

"Zero-tail" is mainly through the pressure sensor on the guide roller to detect the tension of the paper, paper breaking tension is zero. As we all know, in order to ensure that the paper joint has enough fastness to resist the paper tension, tile line of the paper is overlapped, that is, two pieces of paper overlap up and down, the middle is double-sided adhesive. 

However, this paper connection also brings about negative effects. In actual production, the width of the joint, in addition to the overlapping part of the tape, also has asmall tail left when cutting. The actual overlap part is much larger than thewidth of the tape.


Through the corrugated roll extrusion molding into corrugated paper, paper from the two corrugated roll through, and the corrugated roll mesh is very precise, any change will cause the corrugated roll jump, especially at high speed, this jump will be magnified countless times. We can imagine, corrugated roller in high-speed production suddenly into the paper joint corrugated roller mesh, the gap between the two corrugated roller suddenly increased by one time, the corrugated roller jump can be imagined, resulting in the direct result is bad cardboard fit.

The wider the joint, the longer the beating time, the more poorly fitted cardboard. Therefore, it is very important to achieve zero paper tail (i.e., the joint overlaps the tape width and does not have as mall tail). The significance of zero paper tail is not only greatly reduce the corrugated roller vibration caused by the waste paper board, but also because there is no paper tail, the joint of the cardboard can also be used as aqualified product.

When the joint is on the top of corrugated or in the middle, most cases can be used! Save more than 70% loss caused by the splicer, In particular, reduce the cardboard loss of long tail of paper in the corrugated machine that can not be glued.

A paperboard production line can save up to 37,058$ a year by using the "zero end" of splicer.

If the board that corrugated board production line in the second, third, fourth layer of paper reflects the "zero papertail." Therefore, it can be calculated as follows: (3  splicers, 0.5$ for each piece of cardboard, 40 to 80 times for each splicers every day, working 300 days a year)


40 times a day: 3 splicers *0.5$ *40 times *300 days =18,000 $

80 times a day: 3 splicers *0.5 $ *80 times *300 days = 36,000 $

In fact, the significance of ‘zero-end’ is not only to solve the problem of direct loss for everyone, but also to help the carton factory solve the indirect loss (including labor, water and electricity, coal).
