SCHEME ON CORRUGATED BOARD AND BOXES
This project profile in detail foresees setting up of unit to produce corrugated board and boxes.Paper and paper products are versatile industrial raw materials with a wide variety of application inthis era and due to shortage of softwood, wooden packing cases are more and more replaced withcorrugated board- boxes and cartons. As more and more materials are coming in paper packing,availability of raw materials are also on the increase. Thus recycling of waste paper is in demand, whichcan be used to produce products like paperboards, binding sheets, sweet box cartons and other packingcartons.80% of industrial packaging is done by carton boxes due to effective cushioning, light weight, easyto fabricate, easy for storing, easy for disposal, no strapping necessary, printing and advertisingadvantages, must in export market, recyclable etc.
Corrugated board boxes are used in different area of packing in goods such as: Breweries, Glasswares, Cigarettes, Pharmaceuticals, Biscuits, Milk & Milk products, Soaps, Cosmetics, Tea & Coffee,Hosiery, shoe & footwear industry, toys etc.,

PRODUCTION DETAIL AND PROCESS TECHNIQUES:
Corrugated board is made with a corrugated sheet of paper attached to the facing of flat paper,usually kraft by adhesives. In our country, it is mostly produced over a single facer machine here twopaper reels are run together, one layer of paper becomes corrugated after passing through the heatedrolls and the other is brought into contact with it after the former having glued at the tips. Thus both get
