In an effort to increase production, a kraft linerboard pulp and paper mill situated in the Southeast thought that by modernizing their roll handling system prior to upgrading their winder they would avoid downstream production bottlenecks. Globe Machine won the order to install a new roll handling system from the winder on the upper level paper machine floor to the lower level shipping and warehouse floor. The installation of the new Globe Machine system took place without stopping production.

The scope of machinery supplied included automated roll separation at the winder deck, a MoveRoll conveyor with 4 roll pockets, a new all electric lowerator fitted into the existing lowerator footprint, a new printer system, a new strapper, a scoop to reintroduce stray rolls, and an all-electric cradle upender.  The new system can handle up to 90 rolls/hour.
