Information on Trial Production

List of Papermaking Technologies

Preparation of Raw Materials
Preparation of Raw Materials
This process is coordinating raw materials and chemicals for making recipes of product. It determines the basic paper constituents.
Wire Part
Wire Part
This process is for the first dehydration of raw paper materials to be formed into sheet on the wire.
Dryer Part
Dryer Part
This process is for drying the sheet dehydrated in the wire part.

List of Processing Technology

Impregnation Processing
Awa Paper Mfg. conducts dip-squeeze processing.
Coating
Awa Paper Mfg. applies coating by the comma direct, comma reverse, kiss, and gravure coating methods.
Thermocompression Bonding and Adhesive Processing
There are two types of adhesive processing: hot-melt processing and hot-melt resin processing (dry method and semi-dry method).
Surface Processing
Awa Paper Mfg. performs surface processing by corrugation, embossing, and pleating methods.
Finish Processing
Awa Paper Mfg. performs finish processing using winders (drum winder, center winder and biaxial winder) and cutter/cutting machine (guillotine).

List of Evaluation Technology

Specimen Preparation
Specimen Preparation
We use a wide variety of evaluation technologies to provide reliable products meeting the needs for end products.
Protyle Test
Protyle Test
Protyle tests for determining the dispersibility of fiber, fiber length, and paper strength are conducted to assess suitability for papermaking.
Analysis
Analysis
We respond to a variety of needs including the identification of raw material, performance evaluations, and investigations of substances of concern by conducting analyses internally or outsourcing them to analytical bodies.
Characteristic Test
Characteristic Test
We check whether the characteristics meet customer needs.
Environment Evaluation
Environment Evaluation
The physical properties of sheets are measured in a constant temperature and humidity room for evaluating under the stable atmosphere because they are susceptible to humidity. In addition, if a test needs to be performed under specific conditions, a constant temperature and humidity bath is used.
