For many years, Marbach has been offering its customers a special protection plate that permanently compensates for unevenness in the cutting platen. This has ensured significantly reduced make-ready times. From now on, this technology will also be available for large-format machines with a split protection plate. It will run under the name DZL|plateXL.
Marbach Sales Manager Jan Brunner: "Job-specific area make-ready, eats up time and money. It has to be carried out for each individual order. That is why, for several years, we have had the DZL|plate for die-cutting machines with protection plates up to 162 format. This digital zone levelling does not have to be carried out for each individual job, but lasts for several months. Due to its outstanding success, we naturally did not want to deprive those of our customers with large-format machines for die-cutting corrugated board. That's why the DZL|plateXL is now also available for large-format machines with a split protection plate."
Once inserted in the die-cutting machine, the DZL|plateXL permanently compensates for system-related tolerances in the cutting platen over a period of several months. This is in complete contrast to the conventional method of area make-ready, which has to be carried out again for each individual job. The DZL|plateXL reduces make-ready times and increases productivity in packaging production.
Marbach provides solutions to ensure top performance for its customers. In order to make packaging more attractive and to visually highlight individual elements of packing, the embellishment process of embossing is often used. As an eye-catcher, it increases the impact of a package at the point of sale. This then has a sales-promoting effect for the packaged product. If the embossing process is not integrated into the die-cutting process but is carried out separately, this is known as embossing and die-cutting in two passes. This is more time-consuming than an embossing process integrated into the die-cutting process. But here, too, set-up times can be minimized.
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies (MDS) includes machines, equipment and materials for diemaking. In particular, MDS has expanded its range of manual devices in recent months. Among the most popular of these is the mcut|multi multifunctional cutting tool. It cuts rule materials quickly and without deformation. Plastika Mostar in Slovenia is already using mcut|multi and is very impressed.
Marbach supports its customers in producing packaging that stands out at the point of sale. One popular method for visually enhancing and refining packaging is embossing. This can be used to highlight individual elements in particular.
More information about embossing and the free white paper can be found on the Marbach Experience Hub.
