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 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.
Marbach opened its Marbach Academy in 2017. In its first year, more than 220 participants visited the training center in Heilbronn. And since then the number has been constantly growing. Marbach is training the industry in the die-cutting process.
An eventful year has come to an end for the cutting-die and thermoforming tool manufacturer Marbach. Marbach has a nice tradition of making donations at Christmas instead of giving presents to customers. When selecting recipients, it is important for the Marbach management to divide the money between internationally known and regionally respected institutions. Because the Heilbronn-based company is active all over the world .This year, Marbach has donated 7,000 euros to help in Burkina Faso and 3,000 euros to the protection against freezing to death by the Aufbaugilde Heilbronn.
