Bespoke packaging SME collaborates with the AMRC to develop low-cost robotic manufacturing solution

An autonomous robotic solution for improving process time and health and safety during the manufacture of cardboard boxes has been developed by the Integrated Manufacturing Group (IMG) of the AMRC.

The system was developed for The Cardboard Box Company, an SME based in Accrington that designs, prints and manufactures bespoke corrugated packaging solutions for industrial, retail or promotional displays.

The Cardboard Box Company accessed the expertise and state-of-the-art capabilities at the AMRC and benefitted from a grant-funding scheme run by the AMRC specifically to help SMEs fund research projects. The initiative match-funds the costs involved in conducting research and development projects for SMEs and is funded by HVM Catapult.
