Understand the processes in manufacturing cardboard tubes, film cores and other products


Ask the vendor about their research process. Stand-out manufacturers relentlessly run research with their products and production process. This helps them with continuous improvements.


At JPT, we’ve incorporated our findings from our recent winding pressure research into production. This has helped us to overcome the winding process disturbances during production, cutting down production cost, thus making our products more affordable to everyone.



Does the vendor produce reliable and quality cardboard tubes and other products?


Reliability and Quality are very important. The more reliable the products are, the more credible the vendor is. The better the quality, the higher the revenue! Look for vendors who produce film & foil cores that can withstand any pressure. You wouldn’t like to waste your time in approving below-quality products.


At JPT, we can say that all our manufacturing and post-manufacturing processes are carefully developed to ensure high winding pressure for our cardboard cores. From choosing the right paper, reel thickness, reel dimensions to the winding process, all the steps are closely monitored to ensure the quality of our film & foil cardboard cores.






Look for a manufacturer that has the Capacity and Capability to Fulfill your Requirements.


Can the vendor provide cardboard cores for all your requirements? Can they make the surface of the core as per the specification that you’ve provided? Can they provide you with a wide range of designs to choose from?




Knowing the manufacturer’s production capabilities and capacity would be very beneficial. It doesn't only save you the time and reduce costs, but could make your business run more efficiently. Imagine you have different requirements for cardboard tubes and have different manufacturers that fulfill your requirements.
