By investing in box making machine like the AutoBox Boxer, you will typically see a good return on investment within 18-24 months as is the case with valued customers, Contract Candles and PCT Automotive, who have seen savings of 30% on average. These savings have been reached by reducing the necessary warehouse space used to store variations of cardboard boxes and instead replacing them with a compact machine capable of making boxes on demand, eliminating the warehouse costs. On demand boxes are also cheaper to ship than standard size boxes as many couriers calculate delivery prices based on volumetric weight, so a smaller more suitably sized box is cheaper to ship. If you run your delivery service in house, your business will also save money as a greater number of compactly made boxes can fit into a delivery van so that you can deliver more parcels per journey.
Make Boxes on Demand:
Users need no prior box making knowledge to operate the AutoBox Boxer module as it is a simple yet effective machine. To use, just load the blank sheets into the AutoBox Boxer, input your required box style and size into the touchscreen interface or even remotely from your PC or mobile and watch as your custom box is created instantly. To create over 100 different styles of boxes in a variety of sizes, you only need to stock a few basic corrugated sheet sizes which we will help you to source to get the best deal. For example, Numatic International only stock four variations of corrugated sheets to create a multitude of box shapes and sizes to suit their customer requirements. The nature of short run box making enables the AutoBox Boxer to create as little as one box at a time for a specific order or produce larger quantities if required.
The AutoBox Boxer’s capabilities can be boosted even further with additional AutoBox modules to make your box making production seamlessly effective.
