Some very popular everyday household cores would include toilet paper rolls, paper towel rolls, gift wrap and tape and label cores. If you’re tuned in to the industrial world, you’ve surely seen tubes and cores of carpet, cloth, wovens, yarn, spools of wire, rope and cords. 

Have you ever thought of these uses of tubes and cores?
