Converting and printing

Rewinding and slitting rolls are available on site. Rolls are rewound to make composite rolls of the various trial points or slit down to narrower rolls to fit a variety of converting operations. The 1 m width of the coater produces rolls that will fit many commercial presses. Rotogravure and flexographic printing presses are available on site. WMU can also arrange local resources for sheeting or corrugating. The corrugator can take the surface-treated liner and/or medium off the WMU coater and produce a box. A finished corrugated box is ideal for further testing or providing sample products for your customers.
