Automatic blanking is trending. The advantage is not just productivity. But also an exact delivery of the blanks. For optimal processing. Marbach, worldmarket leader in cutting-die manufacturing, has completely reworked its blanking technologies this year.
The results are the two new blanking tools: lightblanker and marbablanker. The lightblanker is characterized by its light weight and cost-efficient design. This tool is perfect for orders that have previously been separated manually. For higher requirements, Marbach has developed the marbablanker. The advantages: it is perfectly tailored to the operator’s requirements and therefore allows a smooth production process. For very small blanks, Marbach has introduced the new special solution nick-breaking.
The light way of Blanking. The lightblanker.
The lightblanker is a modular blanking tool. Its advantage: the base frame can stay in the machine. It gets adjusted each time according to the job-specific blanking grid. Ultra fast. A few quick steps and the lightblanker is ready to use. With quick lock functions. Eduard Görtz, Marbach blanking expert: “The light weight tool will win you over with its one-person handling and high flexibility. Also with the easy conversion to sheet delivery. Compare manual blanking with the lightblanker. You will see – it's worth it.”
Simply efficient. The marbablanker.
The marbablanker makes blank separation child’s play. It has been perfectly developed for the customers’ needs. The blanking process is fast and trouble-free. Görtz explains: “Our customers choose from different options. They have an unbelievable variety. And also an unbelievable efficiency.” Blanking has never been this easy, so light, so stable and economical all at the same time.
Perfect blanking of small cards. With nick-breaking.
Blanking small cards with double knife – such as blister cards and creditcard formats among others – often cause problems.
That’s why Marbach has invented nick-breaking. Görtz: “With our nick-breaking tools, the punches in the male blanker are replaced by special pins. These are positioned in a way that the nicks can be separated in a focused and controlled manner. So the ups fall down vertically. Without twisting. Or tilting.” This allows significantly faster machine speeds in special application scenarios with small cards. Without time-consuming machine stops. The blanks can be separated securely. And stacked neatly.
Marbach has widened its blanking tool range significantly. And can now offer its customers the perfectly fitting tool for every requirement. For small quantities. And large ones. For simple layouts. And difficult ones. For automatic blanking, that’s worth it.
Marbach recently launched a new system under the name Embossing Register System IV. This allows embossing plates to be set up quickly and easily on embossing dies. With the Marbach system, users can save time when setting up the embossing dies and thus reduce machine downtimes.
Marbach has made a successful start to the new year with its Marbach Academy. In the first quarter of 2019, there were training courses on the subjects of paperboard and cigarette packaging as well as several individual training courses for customers.
Our US location in Charlotte is developing very positively. Following the start of production in 2012, Marbach America has grown into a stable revenue generator within the globally active Marbach Group. In order to be able to serve its customers even better, Marbach America has invested in a laser system of the latest generation. In March 2019 a laser system of the type mlas|compact-2 was installed at Marbach America.
Marbach is on course for expansion. After Marbach has founded subsidiaries in the USA, Malaysia, China and Mexico in the recent years, a second location in the USA will follow this summer. Since 2012 Marbach is already represented with a production site in Charlotte, North Carolina.
