Introduction to Corrugated

Peachtree Corners - Metro Atlanta - GA
Tuesday, August 1, 2017

This introductory course will help students increase their understanding of the corrugating process as well as linerboard and medium performance properties and manufacturing in order to improve corrugated box performance and runnability.

A full day dedicated to corrugated with an emphasis on “How it works” targeting personnel who desire a solid working knowledge on corrugator operations, quality inspections, process troubleshooting, and improving runnability. 

This introductory to intermediate level course covers:

  • Why corrugated and what are the components
  • Overview of a complete corrugator, operation and machine functions
  • Mechanics of the bond
  • Introduction to starch, terms, usage, application, and testing
  • Proper temperatures for bond and board flatness
  • Moisture content in paper and combined board
  • Board quality inspections on the corrugator (operator checks)
  • Trouble-shooting and corrections
  • Glue line analysis
  • How to read combined board for best bond and running conditions

After successfully completing this course, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify main components that make up a corrugator
  • Explain the importance of proper starch variables for a proper bond
  • Explain how controlling moisture in the bonding process improves runnability
  • Able to demonstrate checks needed for combined board defect identification
  • Explain how Linerboard and Medium Properties and tests relate to the final box performance
  • Identify and describe what happens in the Corrugator, and some variables that affect the final product

IACET LogoTAPPI will award .6 CEUs to participants who attend and participate in at least 80% of the educational sessions and complete a final program evaluation.
