Mainway and CASI has partnered together to add the cornerstone of CASI’s automation solutions, the CASi-IBOD (Intelligent Box Opening Device). The CASi-IBOD is an inline, pass-through box opener and case opener with automated box cutting for safe inventory extraction.

By integrating automated box cutting in your facility with Mainway & CASI, you can combat the growing demands of ecommerce, labour shortages, product damages, and injury by allowing faster product removal by cutting and extracting items safely, removing the necessity of human use of a box cutter.

How It Works

The CASi-IBOD is a completely automatic, self-feeding, and self-aligning system. The system uses photo optic and linear displacement measurements that dimension each box. After the box is sized, it is automatically captured and positioned for cutting.


Two Variations

  • IBOD Single is capable of cutting the top cases at rates up to 500 cartons per hour
  • IBOD Duo is capable of opening up to 900 cartons per hour.

Three main cutting configurations*

Box top

Front pick window

Tape seal cuts

*Custom cut can be designed upon request

Other Features

  • Integrated Dimensioning System
  • Easy to use touchscreen Human Machine Interface (HMI)
  • Integrated Diagnostics
  • Dynamic cut pattern selection
  • Dynamically programmable cut depth
  • Automatic blade wear monitor

The CASi-IBOD will boost productivity, eliminate injuries, and minimize damaged products associated with manually cutting boxes. With built-in intelligence measuring the size of every incoming case, precise cuts are made to each box allowing boxes to be fed in any order by any size.
