Presentation matters. Rigid boxes play a significant role in the packaging and delivery of high-end products like electronics, jewelry, candies, and perfumes. This type of box offers durability and radiates a sense of quality that not only preserves but enhances the experience of opening the final product.

Rigid boxes provide a simple and elegant packaging solution. The thickness of the chipboard and paper cover creates an ideal way to protect fragile products like tablets and cellphones while offering customizability for branding.

Benefits of Rigid Boxes

  • Has more durability than traditional folding cartons
  • Adds an extra sense of the quality to the finished product
  • Provides a fine, smooth outer surface for graphics and printing
  • Protects products and is ideal for fragile, expensive items
  • Offers a premium quality yet cost-effective packaging solution

The demand for packaging that protects products in transit while creating a memorable unboxing experience is growing. Equipment like the Europrogetti EP130N lets manufacturers create the perfect package while improving the efficiency of rigid box production.

Improved and Convenient Rigid Box Production


Keeping up with the demand of supplying rigid boxes can be a challenge. For those looking to increase their production rate, equipment like the EP130N can be an ideal solution. Created by one of the leaders in the rigid box equipment industry, Europrogetti, the EP130N is one of the most reliable machines for constructing small to medium-sized rigid boxes. 

The EP130N improves production by eliminating the need for heat-sealing stay tape, creating a smooth paper finish on every box. The machine can produce a wide range of box types, including clamshell, slipcase, and boxes with inclined walls. The EP130N makes some of the most visually appealing and long-lasting rigid boxes.
