Marbach is represented at its Heilbronn headquarters by two divisions: Die Cutting Technology and Thermoforming Tool Manufacturing. But a product which directly connects these two divisions is SR technology (steel rule technology). This is because the Die Cutting Technology division supplies the Thermoforming Tool manufacturing division, and many other thermoforming manufacturers worldwide, with special steel-rule dies.
Michael Kiesel, Sales Manager at Marbach Die Cutting Technology: "After the thermoforming process, our specially manufactured steel-rule dies ensure the reliable separation of plastic cups produced during the thermoforming process. These tools are based on a technology which is perfectly adapted to the requirements of cutting plastic. The rules are installed in a water-jet cut holder and the individual elements are mounted floatingly on the base plate. This means that the steel rule is centered during the cutting process with the thermoformed part and the cutting edge is identical for all cavities. The Marbach silverline cutting rule ensures a particularly good cutting quality and long service life. Due to the high temperatures directly after the thermoforming process reduced cutting pressure is required. For reliable die-cutting. For best performance.
Tools in SR design increase the performance in the production of thermoformed products.
One machine upgrade, popular with Marbach customers, is the digital zone levelling DZL|plate. This protection plate is individually provided with a printed height profile and so can be adapted to the respective conditions of the die-cutting machine. The DZL|plate thus takes over the zone levelling of the machine, which reduces the make-ready times of the rules for each individual job.
Marbach not only has cutting-dies in its portfolio, but also systems for storing flat and rotary dies.
Marbach Die Supplies has launched a new device for notching rule materials in diemaking. Called mcut|notch-duo, this space-saving manual device is available now.
