Open boxes of varying shapes and sizes safely and efficiently, with high-speed operation.

This high-speed variation of the Universal Box Cutter, or HS-UBC, automates the task of opening boxes and is capable of processing up to 16 boxes per minute through its twin lane configuration.

It uses the latest vision technology to automatically detect carton shape and size, and create real-time 3D images to determine the appropriate cut profile for each carton. It can open various carton sizes on the fly, without the need for operator intervention, and is even capable of processing damaged boxes.
