Next-Generation Paper Core Technology In response to the evolution of highly advanced printing technologies and the introduction of unprecedented winding speeds and reel widths, Sonoco Alcore has developed a new generation of high-performance paper mill cores for the printing industry. M-Cores are proven to offer superior performance under the most demanding operating conditions due to their world-class straightness, bending stiffness and higher E-modulus values – even when compared with traditional high grade paper mill cores used in the printing industry.

Optimising Your Production Process Sonoco Alcore pioneers new product development for man-made fiber yarn producers, enabling producers to maximise string-up efficiency and increase productivity, all with flexible and just-in-time (JIT) delivery.
We provide a variety of cores to manufacturers of: Polyester yarn, Polyamide yarn, Aramid yarn, Carbon yarn, and Viscose yarn.
Our cores are offered in a variety of groove and notch configurations, and feature other innovations such as our leading PrinTex technology for yarn identification. See how we've helped our customers.
Strength Under Pressure Our film cores are designed specifically to manage the stresses and pressures experienced during winding, handling, storage and unwinding of various film types, including: Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PPE), Bi-oriented Polypropylene (BOPP), Polyester, and Polyvinyl chloride (PVC).
Depending on the film, you need different core properties to provide efficient winding and contribute to a good roll structure. One of the biggest issues for the film industry is core crushing, which can cause machine downtime and add waste and cost for your customers. Sonoco Alcores dedicated film segment team provides industry-leading cores that use the latest testing technologies, such as radial crush, to ensure that you receive the best core for your needs.
