The authority on automatic box cutting

The CASi-IBOD (Intelligent Box Opening Device) is the cornerstone of CASI’s automation solutions. The CASi-IBOD is an inline, pass-through box opener and case opener with automated box cutting for safe inventory extraction. Integrating automated box cutting allows faster product removal by cutting and extracting items safely by removing the necessity of human use of a box cutter.

With built-in intelligence, measuring the size of every incoming case, precise cuts are made to each box. Boxes can be fed in any order by any size. The CASi-IBOD will productivity, eliminates injuries, and minimizes damaged products associated with manually cutting boxes.

How It Works

The CASi-IBOD is a completely automatic, self-feeding, and self-aligning system. The system uses photo optic and linear displacement measurements that dimension each box. After the box is sized it is automatically captured and positioned for cutting.

A programmable motion device transforms the prescribed cut pattern to each box size. Blade stops and a box snugger are used together to give the cutting robot a squared and stationary target. The IBOD robot then uses intelligent automation software to cut boxes according to precise specifications defined by the customer.

Durable Design

The IBOD features a heavy welded steel frame construction. The components are fabricated from four-inch welded steel tube with heavy gauge steel panels and guarding. The front side panel and the access door is .70 inches thick acrylic for rigidity and safety.

It is completely automatic, self-feeding, and self-aligning. The IBOD uses photo optic and linear displacement measurements to derive the dimensions of each box as it is automatically captured and positioned for cutting. A programmable motion device transforms the prescribed cut pattern to each box size. Blade stops and a box snugger are used together to give the cutting robot a squared and stationary target. The IBOD robot then uses software-controlled automation to cut boxes according to precise specifications defined by the customer.
