APR Solutions’ Maxi Box series provides versatile solutions for a wide range of applications in the corrugated market, from manual machines to semi-automatic models to fully automatic ‘pallet in pallet out’ models. All can be upgraded with a selection of add-ons such as a variety of taping applicators for double sides tapes, magnetic tapes, tear tapes, silicone tapes as well as offering in-line folding, gluing and taping, delivering solutions that can grow with your business.
“The advantage of the machines being modular is that you can start off with the semi-automatic hand-fed machine. Then as your business grows you can add the Plus 1 auto feeder, then further automate to add the Plus 2 which includes the automatic feeder and automatic stacker,” says Tom Ralph, Founder of Graph-Pak.
“These machines are targeted to people who receive orders on demand for short-run box making, gluing, folding and taping. In the world of E-commerce, many industries will find this machine massively labour-saving. We have sold them to white goods and TV manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, fashion houses, providers of recreational goods, fruit packers and many other industries that use boxes,” he adds.
