In a world where we can have basically (almost) anything we want at our fingertips, we soon forget the process it takes to make a product. A product cannot amount to anything great until it has its starting point.  In the converting industry, that starting point is a core.

Converting is the essential part of the process of taking raw materials and creating a finished product. This kind of process is crucial for industries specializing in adhesives, tapes, labels, film, fabric, flexible packaging, etc.  Converting cores are manufactured with each application in mind.  The cores must maintain their durability during and after the process of adding a product on to them.  Yazoo’s paper cores are manufactured from plies of paper of various thicknesses to attain the customer’s strength and performance specifications.

Slitting and rewinding is a common process that Converters use in their operations. A machine takes a product, unwinds the material through a series of blades that slits the material into smaller widths then rewinds it onto a new roll.  Our 100% recycled paper cores have the strength and consistency converting companies require to optimize their operations.  As speed increases on rewinding machines, Yazoo’s cores are designed to protect their inside diameter and core length, greatly reducing cost from waste. Custom capabilities such as covers, liners, embossing, etc. add unique value to a customer’s manufacturing process, without damaging the product.

The next time you purchase something, take a few minutes to reflect on the processes it took to manufacture the product.  You might just appreciate it even more!
