  • Box On Demand®, a technology-focused provider of CNC machines for making right-sized corrugated shipping boxes in plant and on demand, delivers operating cost reduction opportunities to fabricated metalworking companies. The technology gives plants the ability to cut excessive DIM charges, reduce packing time on custom product orders, improve packing workflow, and reduce labor for packing processes.  Live demonstrations of the NextMode 2.5 CNC machine with Matrix™ dimensioning system will be on display at FABTECH in Chicago, IL at McCormick Place November 6-9, 2017 in booth A-4080.

    “Metalworking companies have become subject to the same smaller production runs, custom design and build, shorter lead-time, and direct-to-consumer order transactions that other industries have experienced. This means metalworking companies are shipping more orders via UPS and FEDEX and other door-to-door delivery companies. The shift in business dynamics has caused shipping costs to rise and operating margins on variable order types to shrink”, notes Vic Caricato, Packing Specialist for Box On Demand.

    The Box On Demand system allows both mid-sized shops and large tiered-OEM-suppliers to reduce packing and shipping costs while delivering on customer expectations. The BOD® NexMode 2.5 machine holds up to 98” of corrugated board width for making right-sized shipping boxes, giving fabricators the ability to produce a wide-range of box types and sizes. Corrugate ranges from 32 ECT to 275 double wall and many other type and strength options. The BoxLink™ software provided with the box machine also gives metalworking companies the flexibility to build a box on the fly. This feature allows for custom box designs for shipping a range of parts from R&D testing to full production runs.

    Caricato states, “Our  Nextmode 2.5 box machine coupled with the Matrix dimensioning system provides fabricators with the ability to produce shipping boxes for small run jobs that need fast and easy dimensional order data delivered to the box machine. Larger production runs can have a direct communication link between the ERP system and the BOD box machine. Both of these communication options reduce errors and increase the speed of packing, resulting in maximum cost savings.”

    The Box On Demand 2.5 Nextmode machine and Matrix dimensioning system will be fully operational in booth A4080 at FABTECH November 6-9, 2017. For more details visit or contact technical sales at

  • Compack EVO
    CNC box machine with up to 12 cutting and creasing heads to make right-sized shipping boxes on demand. Dimensional and order data can be linked with ERP system or manual input. Trim conveyor automatically carries scrap to a bin for recycle....

  • Cut shipping costs and packing time by making right-sized corrugated shipping boxes on demand. The new Compack EVO™ CNC box machine quickly and easily produces boxes sized per order or per production run. No capital equipment purchase, only buy the corrugate needed to make boxes. The machine houses 2 robots and up to 12 cutting and creasing heads for making precise shipping boxes in a wide range of configurations. In high-volume applications, the second robot sets heads for the production of the next box while the current box is produced, cutting production time and increasing throughput. The 12 heads allows for complex box production types when needed.

    • Gain productive floor space by eliminating high-volume pre-made box storage.
    • Reduce excessive shipping charges by producing boxes that are sized to the parts dimensions.
    • Mitigate shipping damage or lost parts by making boxes from single or double wall corrugated.
    • Produce standard or custom parametric box designs as needed.

     Production or order data can be transferred to the Compack EVO box machine via direct ERP data transfer. Live demos at Box On Demand booth A4080.
