When it comes to rigid box making, the end product is only as good as the raw materials used to make the box. Quality raw materials go beyond glue, paper and board. It also includes the box forms used on your box making equipment.

Here are a few reasons why it's a good idea to source your box forms from a specialist, like Best Wood Forms, instead of making them in-house.

Cost & Time Savings For Your Business

The True Cost of In-House Form Making

Most companies don’t realize how much a set of rigid box making forms actually costs them to make in-house. 

One (1) set can take a full day or more for the average mechanic to make properly. The average set-up mechanic can earn between $20.00 and $35.00 or more per hour, depending on skill level and location. Not to mention, you're taking one of your skilled mechanics out of production to work on a box form. 

Form Precision Directly Impacts Profit 

Best Wood Forms are made with extreme precision (within .4mm of specification). This level of accuracy makes for easier, and faster set-up. This will also enable you to get the most out of your equipment. Running jobs at higher speeds with less waste can result in real increases in profit margins.

Forms made in-house are usually made with less precision, which can result in equipment jams and unwanted stops in production, driving total production costs up.

Benefit from Bulk Pricing Discounts

In additional to using the highest quality raw materials, Best Wood Forms purchases raw materials in bulk at more competitive prices. If made in-house, these box form raw materials will likely be more expensive if they are not purchased in bulk. 

CONVENIENCE & Added Efficiency for your Production Team

Purchasing your box forms from a specialist like Best Wood Forms can add major efficiencies to your production line, not to mention it's much more convenient for your team. 

Out-Sourcing Raw Materials To An Industry Expert

Just as many companies outsource raw material supplies and processes like board, printing, glue, stay tape, etc., it is much more convenient to have a box form specialist handle your form needs. This is what Best Wood Forms does full-time, every single day. They are form-making experts. Not to mention, you won't have to order, or stock any materials necessary to make forms in-house (wood, acetal, glue etc). 

Simplified and Fast Ordering Process

The ordering process with Best Wood Forms is extremely simple, and you will have a high quality form at your door - machine ready - within 5-10 business days (or faster if needed).

Higher Quality Forms Last Longer

Best Wood Forms provides unmatched quality. Their forms are extremely durable. They have customers that state they have run over 500,000 boxes on one set of forms and they are still going strong.

LD Davis has partnered with Best Wood Forms to provide our customers with not only the highest quality rigid box adhesive and stay tape products, but top quality equipment components as well.
