Roll Trimming of a Paper Roll Used Within the News Paper Industry

A large Midwestern newspaper contracted SOS Services, Inc. to assist them with a web width reduction initiative. Their paper inventory of more than 3,000 rolls of 38", 30 # newsprint on 3" cores required trimming to a 35" width. The paper was housed at 3 different locations and needed to be re-sized on site.

Working around the clock in order to meet the customer's deadline, we used our patented roll trimming machine, fitted with a newly designed cutting blade that produced smooth, precise cuts, to remove 3" of material from the end of each roll.

After lightly sanding the edge of each re-sized roll to ensure that the paper would run smoothly through the web, we performed a 100% inspection to verify that each was within precise tolerance requirements. Each cut end of the roll was also refitted keyway and metal endcap per customer spec. Finally, all scrap material was trolleyed by conveyor and collected in gondola boxes for recycling. To avoid disrupting normal operations and to keep the plant dust-free, we conducted all cutting operations inside an enclosure equipped with an airborne dust containment and high velocity vacuum system.

Our ability to rapidly, cleanly, and safely convert obsolete roll stock into a new, usable size provided a cost-effective means for the customer to make use of its existing newsprint.

Roll Trimming of a Paper Roll - Project Details

Product DescriptionA large Midwestern newspaper contracted SOS Service to help them through a web reduction phase. Over 3,000 rolls of paper at 3 different locations were precisely resized on site. Several crew members worked around the clock in order to meet the customer's time line.
Capabilities Applied/Processes3" of material was removed from the end of each roll. The scrap material was trolleyed by conveyor and collected in gondola boxes for recycling. SOS's dust containment system allowed the process to take place without disrupting any operations. Each roll was lightly sanded after trim process to prevent any web issues and allowing the rolls to run without issues or claims.

After each roll was re-sized, a metal end with integrated keyway was installed and locked into place.
Equipment Used to Split/TrimSOS Service's patented Roll Trimming Machine was used, coupled with a newly designed cutting blade allowing for smooth, precise cuts.
