FEFCO together with Cepi ContainerBoard (CCB) have released the second edition of the Reel Identification and Finishing Guidelines, available on their websites: www.fefco.org and www.cepi-containerboard.org
The document is the result of collaboration between Paper, Board and Core manufacturers with the objective to optimise the production process and reduce waste. The standard refines a uniform bar code to provide consistency between the coding and improves the understanding about the labelling of the reels.The recommendations cover, among others, requirements for moisture details on reel labels, the marking of paper joins on reel ends, new dimensions for standard core sizes, positioning of paper maker joins and reel tension, etc.
Angelika Christ, FEFCO Secretary General, says “This successful revision is the result of the good cooperation between the associations and the commitment of the technical experts, marking another step forward to improving performance”.
Klaus Spielmann, CCB Managing Director, says “Through this revised guidelines FEFCO and CCB are providing a document detailing best practice for the handling and mounting of reels”.
