The main goal of roll handling and wrapping systems is to protect newly-produced paper or board rolls from physical damage, moisture and foreign debris during handling, transport and storage. This is necessary because paper and board rolls may be handled multiple times in multiple ways, and stored in several locations in different environments, prior to use by the customer. This module will describe the steps of a typical roll wrapping system and describe the equipment used in the roll wrapping process.

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Identify the main goal of roll handling and wrapping systems
  • Identify safety guidelines for roll handling and wrapping areas
  • List common roll wrapping materials
  • Describe the basic steps of a typical roll wrapping system
  • Identify and describe the equipment used in the roll wrapping process
  • List the typical information included on roll labels

The following key questions are answered in this module:

Why are rolls wrapped?
Rolls are wrapped to protect them from physical damage, moisture, and foreign debris during handling transport and storage.

What materials are used to wrap rolls?
Paper rolls are usually wrapped with unbleached kraft paper. The kraft paper can be coated and sometimes a clear film is applied in conjunction with kraft paper.

What are headers?
Headers are paper or board discs that are placed on the ends of the rolls for protection.

What is an upender?
An upender takes a roll from its side and stands it on end so a clamp truck can pick it up.

How are rolls secured to prevent damage during transport?
Roll damage during transport can be prevented by following the correct loading pattern and securing the rolls with air-filled bags, honeycomb and contoured void fillers, risers, and non-metallic strapping.

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

Proper roll handling and loading practices are required to avoid roll damage after wrapping. Paper and board rolls are very sensitive to mechanical damage such as tears, cuts, end damage, distortion, chafing, and indentation during handling, loading, and transporting. Clamp trucks outfitted with hydraulic clamps are the most common roll handling device. Use of the proper clamp pads with appropriate hydraulic pressure is necessary to prevent roll distortion and damage to the wrapper or roll. To prevent damage during transport, the correct loading pattern and appropriate dunnage and strapping must be used to secure and protect the rolls. Air-filled bags, honeycomb and contoured void fillers, risers, and non-metallic strapping can all be used to secure and protect paper or board rolls during transport.
