About the AutoBOX AB
The AutoBox AB uses servo control, which allows it not just to change from one style of box to another in seconds, but to do so automatically. You have the highest levels of control and are able to programme the machine to work exactly how you need it. You get the boxes you need, when you want them, and with minimal effort. Your processes are made as smooth and as uninterrupted as possible.

This programming may sound like a complicated procedure, but all of Kolbus AutoBox’s box making machines are designed with the user in mind. We create them to be intuitive, requiring little or no training to operate. They are learnable in minutes. It takes just sixty seconds to set up the machine and even less to create your perfect box. We always want our customers to be as satisfied as possible: creating custom boxes is simple, and so is using the servo control.

All the machine’s tools are controlled through the simple touch screen, making using the AutoBOX AB easy. The tools set themselves automatically, so whether you need to produce small cardboard boxes, large wraps or uniquely-shaped packaging, the AutoBOX AB can make them all at a single touch of a button.

Additional Modules

To get the full potential of your AutoBOX AB, there are also a range of additional modules available. These are specifically engineered to add increased efficiency and build in even greater versatility into your packaging and corrugated boxes. With greater customisation options, you can create boxes that suit every niche need and detail.

The additional modules allow for such custom options as additional box styles, double box cutting (two different styles side by side), fully adjustable printing and stamping, and the auto-feeding of cardboard into the machine.

Read the brochure (below) or explore our website pages for more details about all the additional modules. We have also included a comprehensive video of the working AutoBOX AB so you can see for yourself this powerful and efficient machine in action.
