Interesting articles by Constantine Goulimis in the International  Paper Board Magazine 

Constantine Goulimis got involved with the paper industry in 1982, writing the first provably optimal algorithm for trim optimisation (aka the cutting stock problem), which formed the basis of his Ph.D. from Imperial College. He has extensive knowledge of packaging, specifically scheduling for the paper, plastic film, printing, and corrugating industries, and has worked in this sector in more than 40 countries.

PM width selection

If you are contemplating a new primary machine, or a new corrugator, talk to us about its width.

Reel stock analysis

Many packaging companies need to keep paper inventory at their secondary (corrugating, converting,…) plants. This inventory is typically in reel format, usually in multiple different widths for each grade/basis weight in order to minimise trim losses at the secondary operation.
