Kolbus America is pleased to announce the recent installation of their newest innovation - the BX Motion, at Mitchel Lincoln's Cavendish facility. 

The BX Motion will add exceptional capabilities and options for the customers of Mitchel Lincoln, due to the incredible features on the machine. 

This all-in-one, ultimate short-run, quick- set corrugated boxmaking system, was seen for the first time at the CCE show in Munich in early 2023. Designed from the ground up, it offers ground- breaking build quality and reliability. The BX Motion is flexible, taking stock sheets and cutting, creasing, slotting, digitally printing, and finally gluing the boxes, in one seamless process.

The modular design of the BX Motion Pro enables each machine to be precisely configured to individual customer’s requirements, even down to the sequence of processes. They can produce customized single, double, or triple wall boxes with selectable tool configurations, adapted to their specific production needs.

Key Features of the BX Motion:

  • Selectable Tool Configurations: The machine allows users to choose from various tool configurations, ensuring optimal performance and flexibility.
  • Extensive Box Style Options: Offering more than 50 FEFCO box styles, the BX Motion enables businesses to create diverse packaging solutions to meet customer demands.
  • Digital Printing Capability: With digital print capabilities across the complete format, the BX Motion supports high-quality branding and customization on corrugated boxes.
  • Quick Setup Time: The machine boasts a setup time of under 60 seconds, allowing for swift production and reducing downtime.
  • Automatic Loading and Stacking: The BX Motion streamlines the manufacturing process with its automatic loading and stacking features, maximizing efficiency and productivity.
  • Inline Glue Strip Application: The machine simplifies the gluing process, using a HSS glue head to further reduce finishing processes and material handling.
  • Multi-Out Production: The ability to produce up to three boxes in the width of the machine, maximizes production efficiency for small and medium size boxes. Kolbus has designed a system that reduces setup time to around 5 minutes, with preparation being made whilst the previous job is still being run.

"The BX Motion sets a new benchmark in short run, on-demand boxmaking," said Jeff Dietz, President at Kolbus America. "Its modular design, coupled with the ability to customize tool configurations, makes it a truly adaptable solution for businesses seeking efficient and flexible box manufacturing."

Kolbus remains committed to delivering state-of-the-art solutions to the global packaging industry. The BX Motion exemplifies their dedication to innovation, quality, and customer satisfaction.
