Key solutions such as efficiency and flexibility are more important than ever today. Boix provides both of these positive assets on a sustainable and high-quality level.

At Boix we have been designing and developing a machine that is capable of forming punnet with the 4 ledges folded down and glued on the 4 corners. To do this, we have taken as a base one of our most iconic and tested machines, the MCT-1 to which we have been adapting and incorporating all the components, movements and technological improvements necessary to form a Top Seal punnet in a compact and small machine. The tray former is capable of reaching speeds of up to 4,800 trays per hour, depending on the design of the punnet. The forming head is driven by servo motors for a precise control.
