The Intelligent Box Opening Device (IBOD)

The IBOD is an automated, inline, pass-through box opener that uses advanced robotics to automate manual box cutting operations. The IBOD can be combined with an automated product extraction system to remove the contents and dispose of the box and/or lining. CASI has developed custom robotic applications that empty box contents into hoppers, bins, super sacks, and conveyors, and separate the liner and dispose of the corrugate and plastic separately.

  • I would absolutely recommend CASI. The accuracy of their machines is far better than manual sorting, and it will eliminate human error almost entirely from your operation. With the savings in labor and time, purchasing a CASI is an easy decision.

  • Not only were we able to reliably meet our demands and the needs of our customers, but there were also substantial cost savings from switching to the CASI system. Before the CASI system was installed, we knew we were slightly over packing our shipments so that they all met a minimum required weight. The new system has an inline scale that keeps all of our boxes consistent and prevents over packing. Don Edgar New Limeco, LLC
