Marbach produces cutting-dies for the packaging industry. But that's not all. Marbach also offers a wide variety of materials for die-makers and packaging manufacturers. In a new catalog Marbach shows the variety of its products for packaging producers. One product which stands out in Marbach's portfolio is the contour-adapted cutting plate.
Head of Marbach Die Supplies, Marco Kraiss: "Many sell cutting plates. We however, do not sell them only as raw material, but also cut them to the contour desired by the customer. Completely individual. Our advantage: we are independent of machine manufacturers. This means that we can supply all sizes for common machine types, regardless of the machine manufacturer."
Marbach cutting plates are available in various designs and of varying degrees of hardness. Medium-hard cutting plates, for example, are ideal for use with the Marbach mpower technology. Here the hardness of the cutting plate is optimally matched to the rounded cutting tip of the mpower cutting rule. Unlike many other suppliers, Marbach does not rely on a hardness of 44 or 46 HRC for hard cutting plates, but on particularly hard 48 HRC cutting plates. The extreme hardness of these cutting plates is characterized by very long service life.

Marbach offers various solutions to ensure safe embossing of packaging. The Marbach standard already contains suitable solutions for many applications. In addition, Marbach has developed a further option ensuring even more safety in embossing.
Marbach has recently updated its handheld device for placing nicks into cutting rules. So far, this tool – that is known on the market under the name marbanick – could place a nick with a predefined width and depth into the cutting rule. With the new marbanick|2 version, width and depth of the nicks can now be varied in three steps.
Marbach presented its innovations at Hispack 2018 in Barcelona. Hispack is one of the most important packaging fairs in Spain. From 8th to 11th May, Marbach presented product highlights from the past months at its 20 m² stand B290 in pavilion 2.
Marbach signed a joint venture contract at the end of 2017 with Masterwork (MK), a Chinese manufacturer of machines and systems for the packaging industry. After completing all the necessary formalities in spring 2018, preparations for the new Marbach production location in China are currently in full swing. Production at the Tianjin plant is scheduled to start in summer 2018.
