Explanation:
...and for 'Kartonauffalter', 'box forming machine'

Interesting German-language video here:
http://www.directindustry.de/prod/krones/automatische-karton...

And a similar system here: http://www.accessoriesforvineyards.com/english/automatic-wir...
• Transfer machine to move boxes to closing area using a mechanical arm for the perfect squaring of the box;
• Head supply to pack bottles in horizontal box crossed with separator.
Regarding the box closing unit, the machine is available in 2 models...

I would say (cardboard) 'boxes' or even 'cartons', but 'cases' suggests more solid wooden containers for high-value wines.

As this is one stage on a conveyor system, I was thinking 'box closing station', but I can only find references from patents. I also suspect that 'station' may be Denglish.
My earlier reservations about 'auffalten' stemmed from the notion of 'opening' boxes, but this is precisely what happens to the flat-packed boxes as they enter the conveyor system, i.e. they are opened out into shape.
