Production Stages in Al-Amria International corporation for paper industry:
The factory is formed of five assembly lines for stock setting:
paper rolls, paper sheets, paper bunches, paper packs.
Paper rolls are considered the raw material in the production process. They go through one of the following processes:
Cutting the paper roll: Large paper rolls go
through the process. They are divided into two rolls or more according to the required size. For example, a 170 cm-width paper roll can be cut into a 70 cm-width paper roll and a 100 cm-width paper roll.
Converting the paper roll: Paper rolls are converted to paper sheets of the same size of the rolls and of various lengths. For instance, a 70 cm-width paper roll can be converted to 70 cm × 100 cm paper sheets
Paper sheets are produced by cutting and converting paper rolls. The process is transactional; it is followed by several production processes. The sheets are set and every 500 sheets are separated by a paper separator
Papers bunches are considered the first form of complete production; they are produced after converting paper rolls to paper sheets. Every 500 sheets are packed together that is said to be a bunch that is covered with a note that indicates paper standard and size
They act as the final stage of the production process. They are considered a complete product, but some modifications are introduced to paper sheets such as cutting by cutting machinery. They are converted to paper packs of different sizes such as Foolscap folio.
Any unnecessary items resulting from papers industry are exposed to packing. Such undesired items are collected for packing.
