H.B. Fuller Is Caught Speeding – On the Paperboard Highway

Posted 09/12/2016 by Ruth Pechauer , NA Marketing & NPI Portfolio Manager, Converting

While there is nothing illegal about H.B. Fuller’s innovations that enable us to keep up with equipment trends for corrugated and folding carton converters, the speed with which our new adhesives are able to do so does make it seem as if we’re traversing the paperboard highway far beyond the speed limit. The introduction of Bobst’s new Asitrade V Single Face Laminator, which can be up to 50 percent faster than other laminating equipment, as well as the introduction of higher speed folder gluers from several equipment manufacturers, requires elimination of potential bottlenecks in order to maximize efficiency—and H.B. Fuller is making this a reality. Through the use of technology, particularly adhesive technology, H.B. Fuller innovations will help organizations streamline workflows, increase automation, and reduce handling—all in an effort to save time and money.

Our Experience Drives Our Innovations

At H.B. Fuller, we are committed to providing innovative solutions to meet these emerging high speed requirements. Because we’ve been around for almost 130 years, we have a wide variety of corrugated and folding carton adhesives and tapes to choose from. Not only do our product offerings address the high speeds but they also address the requirements for older equipment, sophisticated nozzle systems, water resistance, and the trend toward lightweight paperboard and better reinforcement.
