We are often asked about the biggest (or smallest) box Slimbox can produce.The answer is not simple but it will demonstrate the flexibility of box making on a Slimbox.
Every box always begins with a flat sheet of corrugated cardboard that is cut and folded into the desired shape of the box. The dimensions of that sheet of cardboard, the choice of box design and the thickness of the cardboard will determine both the maximum and minimum possible box sizes, no matter if those boxes are made on a Slimbox or entirely by hand.
In other words, no matter what method you use to make the box, the maximum and minimum box sizes are affected by the choices you make.
The simpler the design and the lighter the cardboard, the smaller the box which can be made. For example, Slimbox can cut a simple box design from single wall cardboard into which a golf ball will fit perfectly (approximately 4.1cm on each side).
For larger boxes, if the sides of the box are very tall, there is less of the cardboard sheet for the bottom of the box. A design with a separate top leaves more cardboard from one sheet for the sides and bottom.
As a practical matter, it is easy for Slimbox to make boxes for shipping things like skis or golf bags or even a pole vaulter's pole. Slimbox can even make a box in which you could ship the pole vaulter and pole together, if only there was a carrier which would accept a shipment containing a human!
The key take away here is that lighter weight cardboard is needed for very small boxes, because thicker double or triple wall corrugated cardboard is more difficult to fold, but thicker cardboard is required to make larger boxes.
