A box cutting machine automatically cuts blank box corners to create box flaps. The distance between box corner slots and slot depth is adjustable. A robot with a robotic arm having a movable knife makes four cuts at all four corners of the box.
The flat boxes are picked up from the box magazine by the means of vacuum suction cups and placed onto the main processing conveyor.
The flat box moves on the main conveyor until it reaches the box stopper. Then the upper support is lowered and it pulls up the upper surface of the box with a vacuum suction cup system, keeping the box upright. From the bottom, the box is hold by lower vacuum cups so that the box retains its rectangular corners.
The robotic arm approaches the assembled box and makes four precise cuts on the designated lines one by one. The use of robotic equipment allows for high precision and accuracy during the cutting process.
After the cutting process is completed, the box is released by the vacuum suction cups and it, therefore, falls flat on the main conveyor and is transferred for further processing.
