Boix, manufacturer and worldwide supplier of tray forming machines, puts great emphasis on cardboard punnets as a sustainable packaging solution. During Fruit Logistica 2019 in Berlin, the packaging partner will be presenting the MCT-1 punnet forming machine for automatically and mechanically setting up punnets and small trays from both corrugated and solid board. In addition, Boix seizes the trade fair for the introduction of the latest Boix Q-1500 V3 functions, such as remote access.
Sustainable packaging is currently an important pillar of policy for many growers and retailers. With changing wishes and requirements, it is important to be able to realize new packaging solutions quickly and efficiently. That is why Boix organizes a live demo of the MCT-1 punnet machine during the Fruit Logistica, where visitors can see all functionalities live and have the opportunity to ask questions.

No qualified technician is required for changing formats.
The machine is an entry-level model from the range of Boix tray formers. The delivery time is approximately 30 to 60 days. The small cardboard trays and punnets that can be set up with tray former are suitable for packaging vegetables, fruit, prepacked bread, snacks, potato products and meat products.
