CRANFORD, NJ, May 28, 2013 (Press Release) -Newark Recycled Paperboard Solutions (www.newarkgroup.com), a leader in the collection of secondary fibers and the manufacturing and converting of 100% recycled paperboard in the U.S. and Canada, announced that it is analyzing a new radial crush tester for quality control in its tube and core manufacturing.

"We are very excited to be one of the first companies to use this new technology," said Dien Bui, Division Quality Manager for Newark Paperboard Products. "The radial crush tester has fewer parts and requires fewer steps to measure a core."

The radial crush tester mimics the amount of pressure put on the core by film or other similar substrates.

"Newark is always looking for new technology that will enable us to offer our customers a more consistent product and overall better quality," added Mark Klein, Senior Vice President of Newark Paperboard Products. "The radial crush tester is a great example of this."
