As we look ahead into the new year, Accurate Box is planning the installation of five new pieces of machinery to increase its automation, flexibility, and throughput.
Two New Folder-Gluers
These two new folder-gluers will allow us to run faster, do quicker make ready’s with a more automated system, and provide us the flexibility to run any size box on more machines. The machines will be up and running in Accurate Box by February 2022.
New Koenig & Bauer 7-Color Printing Press
We purchased a third Koenig & Bauer 7-color printing press. This purchase will allow Accurate Box to increase production and throughout in our 200,000 square foot facility. The new press will be able to run 17,000 sheets an hour and installation is scheduled for April of 2022.
Two New Feeder Robots
We are working with a company to develop two fully customized feeder robots for the folder-gluers that have robots stacking boxes onto pallets on the delivery end. The stacking robots, along with our fast-paced gluers, are difficult for people to keep up with and cause our team members to exert a lot of physical force. These new feeder robots will make us more efficient and will keep our machines operational during all hours.
Accurate Box Company took a big leap in its printing capabilities by purchasing a new high-speed digital printer. The printer allows Accurate Box to offer more options to its customers when manufacturing boxes.
Manufactured by Digital Printing Inc., the machine can print on uncoated sheets using 4-color process and is capable of printing an area of 44” wide at a speed of 150 feet per minute. Before purchasing the digital printer, Accurate Box had to rely on outside partners to print double-sided boxes. Now, Accurate Box is able to produce double-sided print boxes in-house at lower costs and lower minimums than ever before! The purchase of this machine was essential for Accurate Box’s mission to not rely on any outside partners for any part of its process.

Using photochromic and thermochromic inks, Accurate Box’s packaging changes colors when exposed to the sun or to different temperatures. These new inks are another way for companies to make their packaging stand out and WOW consumers. In no way are the photochromic and thermochromic inks harmful to the environment. Consumers can recycle the box after they are done using it since Accurate Box’s packaging is 100% recyclable.

Accurate Box now has its FSC and SFI Chain of Custody certifications! These certifications guarantee that Accurate obtains its paper from well-managed forests, controlled sources, and/or reclaimed materials. This is a great achievement for Accurate as it increases its sustainability!
Chain of Custody (CoC) is the path taken by products from the forest, or in the case of recycled materials from the moment the material is reclaimed to the point where the product is sold with an FSC or SFI claim and/or the product is finished and labeled. CoC makes sure each stage of sourcing, processing, trading, and distribution, where there is a change of product ownership, is tracked allowing the product to be traced back to a sustainable forest. Accurate must maintain proper documentation to prove that this chain is not broken. This process is reviewed by SGS on a yearly basis, and the results of this audit determines the ability to utilize the FSC and SFI label. Accurate’s initial audit was conducted in late January and revealed no major non-conformities!
