Arizona Corrugated Container produces stock and custom corrugated cartons, inserts and master shippers along with custom tooling, printing, die cutting, and on time delivery. Besides flexographic (water based) inks, ACC can supply dazzling litho-laminated boxes and displays.

In Arizona, we operate two facilities, which are only 110 miles apart, with state of the art box-making machinery. For example, a specialty folder gluer that allows us to run at high speeds, die cut boxes, trays, auto lock bottom boxes, tubes, and more.

Six die cutters and six printing presses in Arizona allow for fast set-up features, reliable quality control, and on time deliveries.

Our 400 foot long corrugator consists of a wet and dry end to combine three rolls (or reels) of paper to to corrugtated sheets.

The wet end of a modern corrugator starts with roll stands, splicers, preheaters, a bridge, two single facers with flute changes, glue machine, and double facer with hot plates, which complete the combining process. Paper changes on the wet end are a moving caliper target. Mill liners and mediums are specific to their own paper machines. So the caliper of box converting machines is going to be different and will always need proper settings.

The dry end function receives, at speeds over 1,000 ft/min., board from the wet end going to a slitter-scorer and cross-cut with a direct-drive knife. Then the sheets are neatly stacked, ready for transfer to converting into corrugated boxes. It's software provides a detailed diagnostic of processes, controls the production schedule and status of the roll stock inventory.

You will realize why we have the best Quality Flat – No Crush corrugated sheets in Arizona.
