Digi-Lite

The Digi-Lite is an entry level digital printer module compatible with the AutoBox and the BOXER. It allows for a relatively inexpensive solution for in-line digital print. Simply wheel the Digi-Lite into position at the rear of the AutoBox for instant, simple, single colour print. The Digi-Lite is fitted with a 70mm print head as standard.


Digital Printing
The printing module operates on a simple touch screen interface form artwork in put via a USB port, to give ink jet digital printing with a high resolution 180dpi. Printed boxes were previously always created using a printing plate. Digital printing speeds up the whole process and allows the quick reconfiguration to different designs. Printing is now easier than ever.


Colour Options
Chose form our range of black, red, green and blue cartridges, all using quick cure ink


Custom Printed Boxes
The addition of the Digi-Lite with the AutoBox means that you can create printed boxes in as little quantities as you like. You can even make one individual box. The advantage of the Digital printing over traditional flexographic printing is that switching design, logo or text is incredibly simple. Rather than having to reconfigure printing plates, the computer does the work for you.

It provides the ultimate tools for customisation and flexibility, even allowing for switches in box style half way through a programme.

About the AutoBox
 
The AutoBox 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 easy. The tools set themselves automatically, so whether you need to produce small cardboard boxes, large wraps or uniquely shaped packaging, the AutoBox can make them all at a single touch of a button.

Additional Modules

To get the full potential of your AutoBox, 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 Multi-Cut module allows for such custom options as additional box styles, double box cutting (two different styles in multiple length). We have 3 printing modules, the Flexo-Print, Digi-Lite and the Digital-Print. For auto-feeding of larger cardboard, we offer the Auto-Feed module and for stacking we offer you the Auto-Stack.

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 so you can see for yourself this powerful and efficient machine in action.
