The article reports on the means to maximize savings and minimize waste during the process of making corrugated and folding carton through baling. Most of the converters' major problem is the waste during production processing. The trim, diecut, and makeready scrap can not be avoided in the process. However, this can be handled more efficiently by increasing the bale density. If this happens, saving industrial cost will be enhanced.
