With its calibration tool package, Marbach ensures that its customers can quickly and easily re-adjust the components of their die-cutting machine for flat die-cutting of corrugated board. This results in a significant reduction of set-up and make-ready times.
Over time, the pre-set zero position of the die-cutter frame fine adjustment can be lost. This gradually leads to deviations. The die-cutting and stripping stations no longer perfectly fit together. As a result, the set-up and make-ready times for each individual job increase. Productivity decreases.
Ingo Graham, Product Manager at Marbach. "With the calibration tool package, the stations die-cutting and stripping can be re-adjusted to one another. As a result of this, the position of the cutting-die will again perfectly match the position of the counter plate. Also the upper and lower parts of the stripping station will be optimally aligned to each other. Everything fits together perfectly again. This significantly minimizes make-ready times for our customers and increases their performance."
A further advantage of the calibration tool package: if several machines are set-up with the calibration tool, flexible and efficient use of the same tool package on different corrugated board machines becomes much easier.
Marbach has been a specialist for the production of cutting-dies for the packaging industry for many decades. In addition, the Marbach portfolio also includes tools for special technical solutions. One of which is the production of cutting-dies with particularly high cutting rules.
In May of this year, Marbach launched its new lower pin unit with high precision lower pins. This is mainly used for jobs where very small amounts of waste have to be stripped and where requirements for die-cut blanks to be waste-free are very high. With the lower pin unit, waste is stripped very safely in these areas of application. In the last months, several customers have already been using the new Marbach technology. Customer feedback has been consistently positive.
Marbach is working at full speed on various digitalization and Industry 4.0 projects.
