New Sheeter Increases Converting Capabilities by 30%
Case Paper recently completed the installation of a MarquipWardUnited sheeter at their Chicago, IL plant. The new equipment provides custom-sized sheets of both paper and paperboard and has increased the plant’s sheeting capabilities by 30% to approx. 30,000 tons a year.
The third sheeter to be installed at the Chicago location and the tenth converting equipment purchase by the company over the past seven years, Case Paper’s latest acquisition utilizes industry-leading sheeter knife technology. And with a three-pocket slitting system and series of pulsed air jets, the sheeter offers enhanced reliability at higher running speeds. Moreover, side and lateral jogging help operators stack the sheets more efficiently.
“Along with a skilled workforce and a solutions-based management team, our latest purchase will enhance our ability to deliver paper and board more quickly to our valued customers throughout the Midwest,” said Robin Schaffer, President and CEO of Case Paper.
Even as the paper and board markets continue to contract, Case Paper’s investment in state-of-the-art technologies has positioned the company as one of the only distributors that can convert and deliver skids or rolls anywhere in the U.S., usually within 48 hours or less.
