RoboCut – the Hardboard (HDF) Edition

Multipurpose solution for cutting cardboard and up to 3 mm HDF

With the enhanced functionality, RoboCut goes beyond custom package production. All it takes is to change a tool enabling the robot to effortlessly cut parts of various types and dimensions from hardboard (HDF). This expanded versatility makes RoboCut the perfect choice for upholstery manufacturers who not only package their production in cardboard boxes but also reinforce furniture frames with precision-cut hardboard parts.

Advantages of the RoboCut – Hardboard (HDF) Edition

In addition to the standard RoboCut advantages that you will find below, the Hardboard Edition provides the ability to cut parts from hardboard sheets.

  • Wide application. Can work with different types of cardboard such as 3-layered or 5-layered and up to 3mm hardboard
  • Saves money. Eliminates the need to process cheaper materials such as HDF parts and corrugated cardboard on costly CNC machines.
  • Changeable tool. Allows adaptation of the system for hardboard processing.
  • Saving costs. Buy only raw cardboard or hardboard sheets instead of finished packages and parts.
  • Short the supply chain. Allows to produce packages and parts in-house.
  • Customer-friendly. Eliminates the need to buy excessive MOQs.
  • Saves space. You don’t need storage packages since everything is produced on demand.
  • Quality. Ensures consistent quality and output of produced packages.
  • User-friendly. Does not require any robotics or programming knowledge to operate.
  • System alerts. Notification system alerting the operator about finished orders or other information.
  • Autonomous. The solution can operate without human interference until it has raw materials and orders to process.
  • Optimisation of workforce. Can do a lot of work without human interference.
  • ERP system. Possible integration with the ERP system.
  • Sustainable. An integrated nesting system minimises material waste in the process. Can produce packages of different types and dimensions on one raw sheet of cardboard.
  • Individual box templates. Choose from a standard FEFCO collection or create your own custom boxes by uploading a DXF file.
  • Cuts any shape. Unlike most other cardboard cutting machines, which cut only at 90° angles, our solution can cut in radiuses and in any other shape.

Automating the production of cardboard packaging and hardboard parts

The operator must provide a pallet of raw material and create orders in the system, which can be conveniently done remotely. Once the system is supplied, the robotic arm takes over and operates autonomously without the need for human interference.

Equipped with a versatile gripper head, RoboCut efficiently handles raw sheets of cardboard of different sizes, placing them on the vacuum table for processing. The gripper features a vibrating knife for making precise cutting lines, a rolling pin for bending lines, and an inkjet printer capable of printing order numbers or company codes on the inside of the boxes.

Throughout the cutting process, RoboCut ensures the micro joints are strategically placed, enabling the safe removal of the finished cardboard sheet from the vacuum table onto the designated pallet. The remaining step involves breaking the sheet into pieces that are ready for packaging.

This solution can produce up to 75 000m2 of unique packages per month. The return on investment (ROI) for this system is straightforward to calculate. By comparing the cost of purchasing raw materials for RoboCut to process with the price of the finished packages, you can easily determine the financial benefits. Additionally, this calculation can consider the elimination of leftover packages and the freeing up of valuable storage space, further increasing the ROI. If your factory produces packages by hand, then implementing this system can potentially free up to four employees, allowing them to focus on other critical tasks.

To further expand the capabilities of RoboCut, operators can easily switch the system to hardboard cutting. By simply changing the rolling pin to a special cutting tool designed for hardboard, the system becomes ready to process hardboard parts with ease. The transition ensures the efficient cutting of hardboard, while maintaining the same operational processes as cardboard package production. RoboCut’s adaptability ensures that your manufacturing needs are met, whether it’s custom cardboard packages or precision-cut hardboard parts.
