Channeled Resources Group (CRG), a manufacturer of blank shipping labels, release liners, and a supplier of laminated papers and films, has purchased a SAM North America silicone coater for its plant in Marathon City, Wisconsin.
The 70in wide silicone coater will be capable of running at 1,500 ft/min. It will be focused on coating paper release liners of 25 to 80 lbs - including SCK, glassine, clay-coated, and poly-coated papers.
‘Channeled Resources purchased a new 65in silicone coater in 2019. With the increased demand in the marketplace, that machine is closing in at capacity now,’ commented Cindy White, president and CEO of Channeled Resources Group. ‘We need to add additional equipment, with a few bells and whistles to improve efficiencies, which will allow us to continue to grow our release liner business. Our customers are growing, and we are growing with them.’
Don Teich, vice president of sales for SAM North America, added: ‘We’re thrilled to support Channeled Resources Group with the addition of this new coater. Our high-tech silicone coater will provide them with the expanded capacity they need now and into the future.’
The silicone coater will be installed in the second quarter of 2023.
