Marbach recently presented its new embossing register system for embossing-dies under the name PES IV. One customer who has been successfully using this system for several months now is A&R Carton in Kriftel, Germany.
The responsible department heads at A&R report: "In the past, we often had problems setting up embossings to the printed image. This process took a very long time. In addition, precise make-ready was very difficult. We spoke with our cutting-die supplier Marbach about the need to reduce make-ready times and yet still achieve optimum fitting accuracy.
At Marbach, the development department went to work and developed a solution. Marbach designed a system with which the embossing can be quickly and easily adjusted to the print image.
A&R continues: "The PES IV is not only easy to handle, but the set-up is much faster and more accurate than with our conventional method. This saves us a lot of make-ready time and allows us to begin producing our packaging much faster. Our thanks to Marbach for making production easier and increasing productivity."
With Marbach's embossing register system IV, the embossings are optimally aligned to the printed image by using special register pins.
Marbach has been offering training courses at its academy for almost 2 years. Under the motto "Marbach Academy. More knowledge. More skills." Marbach teaches important know-how about die-cutting packaging in practice-oriented training courses. Marbach held numerous training courses in 2019.
Marbach has recently expanded its production capacity in Poland. In addition to two already established plants in Tarnowskie Góry and Kielce, another plant in Poznan has become part of the globally active Marbach Group since September 2019.
Marbach is known for its manufacture of tools for the production of packaging. What is less well known is that Marbach also offers high-precision tools for a wide range of technical requirements.
Marbach has responded to the increasing demand for its die-cutting platen cleaning device by launching a revised version into the market. With this, it is now possible to clean machines where previously the Marbach machine could not be used due to lack of space.
