A new world record for converting and wrapping paper from mill-size rolls into packages of cut-size sheets for a 10 pocket (216cm wide) line has been set by Weyerhauser’s Ridgefield converting plant, using equipment from Körber PaperLink. The new record – 442t/day for the month of January, 2003 – surpassed the old record by 30t, even though Ridgefield had to slow or stop the production lines to accommodate 41 order changes and a variety of basis weights. The previous record of 411t for one month had been set by another Weyerhauser facility.

   The equipment used at Ridgefield is a complete cut-size sheeting and packaging line consisting of an ECH Will SLK 216 10-pocket sheeter with dual unwind stands that feeds two high speed packaging lines manufactured by Pemco.
