Lost Tubes & Labels


Approximately 3% of our competitor's joint tubes are curved. In addition to having to throw away all of their curved tubes, this defect leads to misapplied labels and the loss expense of those labels.

For companies not using Fulcrum's quality tubes, these direct material costs quickly accumulate, impacting financial reliability.

Labor Expenses

Cost of Quality

Addressing curved tubes is crucial because they can cause damage to labels when machinery applies them. This requires rigorous quality control and significant financial investment. Instead of having confidence that all of your joint tube labels will apply evenly with no bubbles or hairlines, joint producers who use curved tubes are forced to employ quality control staff to identify and rectify all of the "seconds" or misapplied labels.

Down Time &
Efficiency Losses


Tube curvature poses a quality challenge and also significantly hampers production efficiency.

The frequent need to halt labeling operations to address curving issues leads to multiple interruptions per hour, each adding to considerable downtime. These pauses, though brief, cumulatively result in substantial lost production time and escalate associated costs.


Additionally, these frequent stops increase labor expenses as more time is required to manage these disruptions and restart operations.

Extra Equipment Maintenance


Frequently stopping and restarting machinery due to tube curving often requires companies to increase their maintenance budgets.


Over time, the constant stopping and starting contribute to accelerated wear and tear on machinery, increasing maintenance costs.

Damage to Brand and Customer Trust

The use of mislabeled joint tubes due to curving has severe repercussions for brands in the marijuana industry, where the integrity of the packaging is critical. No matter how much quality control is used, some curved tubes with bubbles or hairline label issues will likely slip through the cracks and onto store shelves.

Compromised appearances raise doubts about product authenticity and safety, leading to immediate consumer dissatisfaction. This significantly damages public perceptions through negative reviews and social media backlash, tarnishing a brand's image.

These incidents also severely impact relationships with retailers and distributors, risking reduced shelf space and lost contracts in this highly competitive market.


The long-term damage to a brand's identity from mislabeled products due to tube curvature is often immeasurable, affecting not just immediate sales but also market share and customer trust.

The Full Spectrum of Costs
