Is it possible to produce customized boxes which are not present in the “Panotec parametric boxes” catalogue?
Yes, as long as it is within the functional limitations of the machine (ex. – it is not possible to produce boxes with curved cuts).
In the future, if I want to produce different box models that are more complex, is it possible to upgrade the machine?
Yes, we can upgrade the machine by adding more units. This is a very simple operation which is performed directly at the customer site.
Are there any size limitations for producing a box?
The only limitation is the width of our larger machine, which is 3 meters. By employing fanfold several meters of cardboard are available; therefore it is possible to create boxes 3mt x 10mt long.
Do I require any special training to use the machine or its software?
No, the software is extremely easy to use and once the machine has been installed, our technician will give you a short training session. The simplicity of the software allows any operator to work independently from the very beginning.
I need boxes with a logo printed on the entire surface, can fanfold be preprinted?
Yes, all fanfold manufacturers can pre-print the cardboard with serigraphies and in different colors.
How many fanfold sizes can be used by the machine?
The highest performing machine can be equipped with up to 12 cardboard sizes. This is possible thanks to the feeding device called the “Side by Side”, which allows you to use 2 cardboard sizes, one right next to the other. This allows the customer to optimize the use of fanfold by using a different thickness or with various serigraphy.
How much fanfold waste does the machine produce? Do you provide a solution for minimizing the waste?
The cardboard optimization software allows the machine to automatically select the most suitable fanfold size used for the box to be produced. Thus, the software is reducing waste to a minimum quantity. The machine can be equipped with a trim evacuating system which can convey it to a container or a press baler, keeping the production site clean.
If I need a box larger than 3 meters wide, how can I produce it?
Even if the machine width is only 3 meters wide, you can still produce the box by turning it 90 degrees.
What is the minimum box height the machine can produce?
The minimum box height is about 20 mm; however, we provide solutions to produce boxes with a smaller box height.
Can the machine produce cardboard fillers?
Yes, the machine can produce various types of fillers to allow the product to be better protected. Furthermore, it allows the customer to eliminate fillers of other non-recyclable materials, which are typically more expensive.
Is it possible to interface Panotec software with the machinery already present at our facility?
Yes, Panotec has created its own software according to this need.
Do you provide a technical support service to solve possible issues that can arise? Is this also available via remote assistance?
Yes, Panotec provides a remote assistance service that can solve 99% of technical issues. Via a VPN connection we can connect directly to the machine and fix the problem encountered by making any required adjustments that are needed. The customer has the option to subscribe to a remote assistance agreement that grants priority in the resolution of any technical issue as well as granting several discounts.
I don’t have much storage space and wouldn’t know where to place a machine. How could I solve this issue?
Panotec has created several mezzanine floor structures for customers with little storage space. Thanks to this solution the customer is able to fully exploit the space in height, safety and convenience.
