Marbach has launched a new system for the quick and easy set-up of embossing plates on embossing-dies. With this new system, Marbach customers will save time when setting-up the embossing-dies and thus reduce machine downtimes.
For customers who emboss and die-cut/crease in two separate steps, Marbach has developed a solution that makes the adjustment of the embossing-dies to the printed image much more efficient.
Jan Brunner, Head of Business Development at Marbach: "The fact that the printed image must match the embossing is the basic requirement for optically appealing packaging. To achieve this, the embossing plates must be set-up in such a way that the embossing or debossing is exactly in the right position. With our dimensionally stable embossing-dies, the position is already pre-set. However - especially with many embossings on a paperboard sheet - the subsequent fine adjustment to the printed image can still be a time-consuming process for the machine operator."
In order to simplify the positioning of the individual female embossing dies to the printed image, Marbach has developed the embossing register system IV. It is ideally suited for use with embossing-dies. Custom-made steel pins ensure that each individual female embossing die can be adjusted very precisely to the printed image.
Brunner continues: "The embossing register system IV is characterized by its very simple handling. It only needs to be purchased once and can be used universally. This means that it very quickly pays for itself. Of course, the embossing-dies must be specially prepared in advance in order to use the embossing register system."
Some Marbach customers already use the Embossing Register System IV and the feedback is consistently positive.
Marbach was recently visited by its customer Å&R Carton Lund AB for an audit. Å&R Carton looked closely at Marbach from a number of viewpoints and certified Marbach with a very good performance.
With its marbanick|2 for paperboard tools, Marbach has brought a hand tool onto the market that convinces users with its flexibility and simplicity. Since its introduction in May 2018, Marbach has sold almost 200 of these hand-held devices.
Marbach expands its Die Supplies & Automation division. From 01 February 2019, André Angermeir joins the Marbach team as the new Sales Manager. With Angermeir, Marbach has been able to gain an industry insider with a wealth of experience in the world of cutting-dies.
Marbach expands further. After having opened die production facilities in the USA, Malaysia and China in the past years, Marbach will open a Marbach Die Supplies subsidiary in Mexico in January. From here Marbach will supply materials to Mexican and North American die and packaging manufacturers. In addition, training in the application of technologies will be offered. Marbach's goal is to support the Mexican market in its further development.
