About Christer Korin

Christer Korin, born 1970, is Docent at Mechanical Engineering, Örebro University. PhD in 2009 Karlstad University, Korin has been working with converting of corrugated board as well as carton baord since beginning of 1997 he was a Specialist in Converting Technology at Korsnäs AB (earlier Assidpmän, and now BillerudKorsnäs AB) from beginning of 2000 until  late 2011, mostly involved in research and development projects regarding carton board packages and the use of carton board and packages in the mill as well as, converting industry as well as by the end-user. This background led to his employment at Örebro University, 



Carton Board. Converting, Packaging, Adhesion, Adhesive Joints Grip stiffness, Box Compression, Mechanical Engineering



Korin has a background in carton board development and carton board production development for various types of value-added products. His research is mostly focused on approaches to support and improve the usability of carton board.
