MOBA EUROTUBI and CARTHOME PROJECTMoba Eurotubi, sensitive to experimentation and dissemination of new construction techniques, had the pleasure of contributing and sponsoring the entire Carthome project, in the context of the Ecoluoghi 2018 competition (Watch the VIDEO). Our company supplied the React team with its square section cardboard tubes (100% green) for the construction of the entire housing module.
The challenge represented an important turning point in the context of eco-sustainable emergency construction and certainly an important background of knowledge and experience for our company.
Moba Eurotubi is specialized in the industrial production of cardboard tubes for winding and packaging. Our tubes are commonly called cardboard "cores" because of their use. A large part of the market uses our cores to wrap textile, plastic and technical materials. It follows,
therefore, that tube is an essential support for processing; a raw material that creates added value within the production processes. The optimizations and know-how gained in more than 50 years of history, allows Moba Eurotubi to provide the market with a high-performance product.
In 2015 the company introduced a new product on the market: Q-TUBE. The square cardboard tube was born from the need to improve storage and shipping in the packaging and protective sectors, as well as a new structural component in design and construction projects.
100% green product with the use of exclusively dextrin-based adhesives, available in two different sections: square or rectangular.
HOW WE PRODUCE PAPER TUBES
The production of our cardboard tubes is an apparently very simple operation, but it contains in itself many hours of work, analysis and tests of improvement. The paper roll is the main character in the first production stage. These gigantic rolls of paper are placed next to each other on special machines. From there, the reels of recycled paper are unwound to the rewinding spindle. In the middle, each paper reels is soaked in dextrin-based adhesives, 100% natural. Thickness, size and quantity of glue vary according to the final product. Once the paper reel converge into a single point, our tube takes shape from there, which will then pass to the cutting phase to give the product its final length. Much of the process is mechanized and subjected to strict quality controls.
All our tubes are manufactured using regenerated/recovered cardboard in grey and kraft grades. In one year we use about 610,000 km of paper equivalent in weight to 55,000 tons for an average of about 130 million tubes produced.
