Calculating “E” Flute Paper and Starch Consumption

Sudhakar Asks;

Our plant is located in Baddi (Himachal Pradesh, India). We have started providing boxes to well known Multi National Company.

As we intend to do perfect costing of our die cut “E” flute display outers, we need to understand theoretical and practical values of a given size. As paper accounts for 75 % of the selling cost, would be interested to know paper consumption, along with adhesive consumption

While I cannot speak to conditions in India, I can relate to you operating conditions in the United States.

  • • Starch consumption averages 2.6 pounds per thousand square feet.
  • • Sheet waste averages 1.7 percent
  • • Controllable waste averages 6.8 percent
  • • Customer paid waste averages 3.9 percent
  • There are wide ranges in these categories based on converting efficiencies and the technological age of the converting equipment. For example, older equipment without lead edge feeders will generate more waste. Some machine and designs are capable of zero trim waste.
