Holistic thinking guides clamshell redesign
Greener Package

In addition, the design of the structure necessitated extra packaging material without adding value to the package. Therefore, the company’s specifications for the new design included the use of a recycled-content material and a 20 percent reduction in the overall package size.

Winding Machines: Mechanics and Measurements

Winding Machines, Mechanics and Measurements is the definitive book on the science of winding written by noted experts Dr. David Roisum and Dr. JK Good. This three-part book (with supplemental CD-ROM) describes the various classes and arrangements of winding machinery commonly found in the web industries including discussion of controls and defects; describes how roll stresses and roll defects can be predicted by mathematical models and what factors are important; and discusses almost every method for measuring and evaluating wound roll quality. The book describes how and why many wound roll defects occur. In more than a few cases, it even describes when defects occur based on winding models that have matured to the point of trustworthy application. In these cases we have science at its best, a predictive tool. A CD with an easy-to-run winding model is included with every book. However, one need not be a scientist to appreciate and use this text. Much of it is written in everyday language describing the machines we work with, the defects we see and the many measures of roll quality. It is a book that most plants with a winding department would want to have.
