The continuously run, automated corrugator consists of a wet and dry end to combine three rolls (or reels) of paper to to corrugtated sheets, utilizing a seven man crew.

The wet end of modern corrugator starts with roll stands, splicers, preheaters, a bridge, two single facers with flute changes, glue machine, and double facer with hot plates, which complete the combining process. Paper changes on the wet end are a moving caliper target. Mill liners and mediums are specific to their own paper machines. So the caliper of box converting machines is going to be different and will always need proper settings. Plus, we use sensors with Apps.

The dry end function receives - at speeds around 1,000 ft/min., board from the wet end going to a slitter-scorer and cross-cut with a direct-drive knife. Then the sheets are neatly stacked, ready for transfer to converting into corrugated boxes. Its software provides a detailed diagnostic of processes, controls the production schedule and status of the roll stock inventory.
