Marbach has a new product in its portfolio. With the calibration tool package, Marbach customers can now adjust the components of their die-cutter faster and more easily. Through this, the set-up and make-ready time can be reduced.
With time the zero position of the machine frame micro-adjustment is lost. This leads little by little to deviations. The stations’ die-cutting, stripping and blanking no longer fit 100%. Due to this, the set-up and make-ready times increase for every single job. And productivity decreases.
Ingo Graham, Application engineer at Marbach: “We have recently developed a new tool package through which the three units: die-cutting, stripping and blanking, can be adjusted on, and to, each other. Using this package, the tools can be, so to speak, reset to zero with regard to each other. Thus the register cutting-die to counter plate and also the upper to lower part at the stripping and blanking unit, can be optimized. Everything fits precisely together once again. In this way the set-up and make-ready times of our customers can be reduced significantly, and performance increased. Another advantage for the operator is when more than one machine is reset with the calibration tool, using the tool package on different machines becomes easier.”
This procedure should only be implemented by qualified personnel. For support, die-cutting machine manufacturers can also become involved.
Marbach is already involved in its planning for the most important international trade fair for the printing industry: drupa 2020. And now there is only 1 year left until drupa opens its doors again. The last drupa was very special for Marbach: with the number of visitors reaching record levels. No previous drupa had more visitors at the Marbach stand than in 2016.
Marbach has continuously expanded its services in the past year. The newest member of the Marbach service family is the Marbach Performance Boost package. By which, Marbach supports its consulting service which makes its own process know-how available to its customers and thereby significantly increasing their productivity during the die-cutting process.
Marbach has been using for some time now a new rubber for rubbering cutting-dies. The name of this high-performance material is flexpower. Certified by ISEGA for use in the food industry, this rubber offers numerous advantages to operators. Marbach uses flexpower in corrugated board tools (both flat and rotary) and also sells it as raw material.
Marbach is one of the large material suppliers in Germany. Under the name Marbach Die Supplies, Marbach offers materials for packaging manufacturers that meet the requirements in the field of die-cutting. In order to support its customers even more in increasing their performance, Marbach has expanded its material portfolio.
