Sanguinetti Translations
English translation:box-making machine
Explanation:
Since "estuche" can be many kinds of boxes or cases, and "máquina" is very general, without more context I would think your phrase refers to a machine that makes whatever kind of box or case is being discussed in your document.
Would someone please let me know if you find the adjective, "estuchador(a)" in a dictionary? Thanks

cardboard/corrugated paper /box machine


Explanation:
given that it's a machine to make boxes, these are some ideas. remember that estuche can also mean plaster (like plaster walls) - which implies an uneven stippled surface - thus the corrugated.
