Manufacturing Process:

Wood pulp base is the most common material used to manufacture paper tubes. Fibreboard, cardboard, and Kraft paper are the preferred wood pulp bases for this purpose. In the first stage of the manufacturing process, paper is processed into these paper containers.

After the paper has been processed, glue is applied to it to hold the several layers of paper together. The gluing process is important as it ensures the strength and durability of the paper tubes.

If the adhesive is not applied correctly, the paper layers may come off, which can cause the tube to fall apart.

The next process is to feed the paper rolls into the machine for winding. These rolls wrap themselves around a cylindrical bar, thus providing the tube with the desired shape. In this process, the strength of the paper tube is further increased.

These tubes are then sent to the cutting machine. A knife or saw is used to cut the paper tube cleanly.

The distance of the knives can be adjusted to cut the required length of the paper tube. If longer paper tubes need to be manufactured, the knives are spaced further apart.

Considerations and Customization

When designing a custom paper tube, manufacturers think about factors such as the function, the desired level of protection, the desired length and width, and other customer specifications. These considerations help manufacturers decide the structure thickness, level of strength, and general dimensions. For example, manufacturers always choose thicker cardboard for storage, mailing, and transporting fragile items. They carefully select the correct dimension for you in order to minimize how much the products move around while inside the tube. (Note: Despite the wide variety available, in order to ensure structural integrity, paper tubes are generally no longer than 48 inches, approximately 122 cm, in length.)

In addition, tube suppliers can customize tubes with additions such as decorative foil or paper coatings, product information and/or logos printed on the outside of the tube, and different colors, designs, and patterns. The latter is common with gift packaging and holiday-themed postal tubes.

Paper Tube Features

Paper tubes, commonly referred to as cardboard tubes, are cylinder-shaped cardboard tubes.

Cardboard tubes are made up of multiple layers of paper or paperboard that are coiled together to form a tough, hollow, and cylindrical shape. Adhesives are used to laminate or glue the paper layers together. Paper tubes are versatile and can be used for a variety of purposes. Paper tubes are made from wood pulp in the form of recycled paper, paperboard, paper-adhesive composites, cardboard, Kraft paper, waterproof/water-resistant cardboard, and fiberboard.

Both of the shipping tube’s ends are sealed with a plastic plug for postal and transportation purposes, especially for scientific or medical products, or confidential documents. Both ends may be sealed, or they may fold in and close. To formally classify the tube, manufacturers measure the interior dimensions, the thickness of the tube’s wall, and the closing spaces at either end.
