Today, corrugated packaging is seen everywhere. Corrugated media is light and at the same time stable. Its secret is the corrugations that lend the product very high stability. At the same time, the air-filled chambers created by the corrugations ensure its unique cushioning function. It is both appealing to the eye and structural.
The cardboard is produced by combining different layers of paper by means of starch that binds the board together. Fluted sheets and flat liner boards are glued to each other in several layers, so that the final result is a single, dual, or triple wall corrugated cardboard. The core manufacturing piece is the corrugator. This very long machine consists of several individual units which are separately and independently controlled. Thus there are many flute profiles as well. Inside, the individual layers of paper are heated, moistened, laminated and then dried. Afterwards the desired format is cut to size.
