Marbach has optimized its reverse cutting technology. With the new height-adjustable anvil, customers can now adjust anvil height of their cutting-die on their own, if necessary, and thereby save a significant amount of make-ready time.
Various food packaging has opening mechanisms. Reverse cutting technology is one possibility to provide paperboard or corrugated board packaging with a tear-off feature. Reverse cutting is the optimal solution wherever attractive appearance, complete dust resistance and opening features – that can be opened and sealed easily – are crucial.
Marketing manager Tina Dost: “When using the reverse cutting technology, highest precision is vital for optimal function. Because in reverse cutting the board is scribed on both sides – from the inside and outside of the package. This task becomes more difficult the thinner the paperboard is. With our new, height-adjustable anvil our customers can now save make-ready time and achieve more consistent results.”
This new Marbach technology uses an aluminum block that is milled to shape. Its exact height depends on the thickness of the die-cut material. This aluminum block is not inserted into a laser cut contour in its complete height – as in conventional solutions – but in a height minus the die-board thickness and screwed onto the cutting-die from above. Foils are positioned underneath the anvil. The anvil can be adjusted in its height very quickly and easily through the removal or addition of these foils. Tina Dost: “In this way our customers can set-up their tool in the die-cutting machine much more quickly and precisely than with the conventional reverse cutting technology.”
Marbach offers this new reverse cutting option on the market with immediate effect.
Marbach has a new system in place, with which cutting-die and guillotine for corrugated board can be fixed to each other for transport and storage.
Marbach is able to report on a successful presentation at the IADD Odyssey fair in Chicago. Marbach exhibited its newest technologies in die-cutting as well as machines and materials for die-making at its 18 m² booth.
Marbach Tool Manufacturing (Werkzeugbau) will be present at the Kiefel Tech Day from the 28th to 29th of June 2017. Within the framework of TIML-cooperation “Best of each”, and together with the companies Kiefel and Ilsemann, Marbach will give a presentation on the topic “Product Development Competence and Handling”. In addition a Marbach TIML production tool will be shown live in action on a Kiefel machine KTR6.
Marbach operates worldwide. One of its 16 plants is located in Kielce, Poland. This subsidiary was housed in a rented building during the last years. The move into a newly constructed building took place in June 2016. This building has recently won an architecture award.
