Nov. 24, 2017 – Case Paper recently completed the installation of a MarquipWardUnited sheeter at its Chicago, Ill., plant, increasing the plant’s sheeting capabilities by 30 per cent to approximately 30,000 tonnes a year.

The new equipment provides custom-sized sheets of both paper and paperboard.

As the third sheeter to be installed at the Chicago location and the tenth converting equipment purchase by the company over the past seven years, the new acquisition utilizes “industry-leading” sheeter knife technology, a three-pocket slitting system and a series of pulsed air jets. Moreover, side and lateral jogging help operators stack the sheets more efficiently.

“Along with a skilled workforce and a solutions-based management team, our latest purchase will enhance our ability to deliver paper and board more quickly to our valued customers throughout the Midwest,” said Robin Schaffer, president and CEO of Case Paper.
