2500mm paper core cutting machine

In order to screen out the original paper core machine factory, I suggest you use some advanced Google search techniques, such as:

intitle:paper tube manufacturing machine -B2B -Marketplace -leads -platform -directory -connecting -“Find Suppliers” -“Find Manufacturers” -member -buyers -forum -“yellow pages” -yellowpages -online -shop -store -blog -wikipeadia -youtube

Select 2-3 factories among them, and contact these 2-3 factories.

  • Determine 2 most professional sales.

After establishing a connection with the factory, the next step is talking about the kraft paper tube manufacturing machine.

Generally, sales will send you specs sheets, presentation videos, company brochures, etc., you could judge these documents to determine whether the sales are professional.

If conditions permit, you could request to video call with them, let them show you their factory, or demonstrate their paper tube winding machine in real-time.

  • Determine the spiral paper tube machine’s specifications and performance.

After confirming the truly professional sales and the actual factory, the next step is to discuss the spiral paper tube winding machine in detail with the sales.

For the paper tube machinery, you first need to confirm what length, thickness, inner diameter you need to produce, and where it is used.

Because these parameters are especially important for determining the suitable model.


After confirming these parameters, you could feed them back to the sales, then wait for sales to recommend the most suitable model.

The spiral paper core making machine is usually divided into several parts as follows:

  • unwinding
  • gluing
  • winding
  • inline cutting
  • controlling

Unwinding and gluing parts are relatively much similar between different manufacturers in China, you should pay special attention to the winding section and control system.


The winding of paper tube manufacturing machines are driven by the motor and gearbox, so you must care about the motor brand and power, and the gearbox speed ratio.

As the motor power and gearbox ratio increase, the kraft paper tube’s rolling force gets higher, the kraft paper tube becomes tighter, tube quality is better, terminal clients like it more.

However, if the speed ratio is too large, the paper winding speed will be relatively slow, and the production efficiency will be reduced.

Therefore, a balance must be made between quality and speed, and a suitable motor power and gearbox speed ratio must be selected.

As mentioned earlier, paper cores are used in a variety of industries such as the automotive industry, the textile industry, and many more.

Kraft paper tubes are mostly made by paper core pipe winding machines. So how does this machine work?

Kraft Paper Tube Making Machine

Today We would like to share more information on kraft paper tube making machines. 

As a basic industrial packaging machine, there are different types of paper core/ tube making machines all over the world.

They mainly compose of kraft paper ribbon unwinder, starch glue spreader, paper core winding device, and cutting devices.

For the kraft paper unwinder, which is used to unwind the kraft paper ribbons in a certain tension controls.

It should have different working unwinding positions to meet your demand on different paper tube thicknesses.

Mainly there are 24 layers for a 10mm thick paper tube.

Meanwhile, there is a light tension should be kept for the unwinder to keep the kraft paper ribbon in straight positions.

Then the kraft paper ribbon will be immersed in the water base glue tank for glue coating.

It is suggested the kraft paper should be 100% immersed in the glue tank, then scrape off excess glue for the next stations.

The next one is the kraft paper tube winding device, under the use of belts, the multilayer of paper ribbons will be formed into a paper tube core.

For different paper tube thicknesses, you can choose two head kraft paper tube making machines, or 4 head kraft paper tube making machines.

The last stage is the kraft paper tube recutting device. The paper tube will be recut by a certain length.

The above is a complete process of kraft paper tube making machine running. If you are interested in it, please contact us.
