Brazilian customer of BHS Corrugated sets production record with corrugating rolls
In 2017 BHS Corrugated has announced the investments done in its factory in Curitiba, Brazil, to improve the production capacity and quality of Corrugating Rolls.
Now, two years later, we could prove what we had announced before: the improvements are real.
From 2014 to 2018 our productivity index has raised in 35% and, at the same period we have been reduced the warranties in 50%.
Corrugating Rolls have also broken production records running in our customer’s corrugators.
In the middle of 2018 a set of corrugating rolls which is integrated in a Modul Facer of BHS Corrugated, ran 158 million linear meters at our customer Trombini, in Curitiba, hitting a historical record of production. The set was in its fourth cycle, with three regrinds, what makes the record more impressing.
Now, in the beginning of January, another record at the same customer. Our AF-P set of C flute produced 109 million linear meters.
Besides of the investments done in the renovation of our facility in Brazil, and the development of new technologies for carbide surfacing, our team in South America has improved processes and quality control. Furthermore our employees have been trained constantly. We are very proud of the big success, we have reached together with our customer and would like to thank all people who have contributed to it.
