It’s been almost two years and we are getting close to heading back to the great city of Chicago for one of the biggest tradeshows of the year.  Labelexpo Americas is the continent’s largest
event held for the label, product decoration, web printing, and converting industry.  Offering visitors a range of valuable new feature areas, Labelexpo Americas was first held in 1989 and continues to remain an important industry resource for print professionals, brand owners, label and packing designers, and associated graphic industry supplies.  Covering nearly 200,000 square feet, the entire show floor is heavily traveled with traffic by thousands of attendees and over 400 exhibitors.

Labelexpo Americas is held at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL from September 13-15, 2016.  Yazoo Mills will have on display their in-line printing capabilities and custom paper cores for attendees to view at Hall F, booth #6010.  Stop by our booth and see how Yazoo Mills can satisfy all of your paper core needs.

Yazoo Mills has been around for an outstanding 113 years and is still going stronger than ever.  With the increase in demand of Yazoo’s products, comes growth within our production lines.  Recently, Yazoo purchased a new Paco Extra Heavy Recutter (EHR) to compliment the additional 25 recutting lines in our New Oxford facility.

The Paco EHR is a tri-spindle automatic recutter capable of running orders through continuously without manually loading each spindle.  The addition has allowed Yazoo to gain more efficiency while expanding production capacity.  This new equipment came complete with automated controls allowing operators increased adjustability and precision.  Yazoo is constantly reinvesting in the company to ensure that we remain one the largest independent manufacturers of paper tubes and cores.

Yazoo Mills Recut Department Poses For PictureMeet another part of the team that makes Yazoo a strong, independent manufacturing company. The Recut Department is the secondary operation where the master sticks are sent to be cut to shorter lengths. The equipment in this department has the capability to produce multiple truckloads of cores every day.  A machine change over takes approximately 5 minutes and they average 120 change overs per day. Other responsibilities include box assembly, labeling, packing, core counts, and weighing. The Recut Department is also the final leg of quality assurance, before a shipment leaves the plant, checking lengths, tolerances, burrs, and overall quality of the cores. They are a very dedicated group of people, with an average of 13 years of experience, and work hard to make sure our customers get a quality product with every order.
