Paper and Corrugated Manufacturing

Overview Industry Overview:

In the Information Age, there has seemingly been a shift towards digitization, replacing paper materials with electronic ones, making information available through e-readers, websites, and databases rather than on physical copies. Despite this trend, however, the demand for paper and corrugated materials continues to grow each year. Consideration of the diverse repertoire of uses for these products shows us why: it can do much more than store information, including uses in packaging, cleaning, and as a representation of value.

This field continues to grow as it adjusts to meet the demand of the modern consumer market, including greater utilization of recycled paper (which now makes up as much as half of all paper pulp). Other advances also continue to have a positive influence on this industry’s sustainability and environmental consciousness.

App Common Applications:

  • Corrugators
  • Adhesives
  • Dies
  • Packaging
  • Computer-aided design
  • Recycling, shredding
  • Bleaching
