Marbach knows the requirements of the market. Especially for manufacturing cigarette packaging where the demands on quality are high, and the packaging process has to be especially productive. With the crease bend tester, Marbach offers its customers a device with which creasing forces and folding resistance of a package can be tested precisely. For the smooth packaging process of cigarettes.
“Packaging must fit the product that is to be packed,” says Tina Dost, Marketing Manager at Marbach. “But of course also the packaging process has to be evaluated. For example during packaging of cigarettes the requirements are very high. The inline packaging machines are unforgiving of any faults in the quality of the packaging blanks. In order to keep our customers on the safe side with respect to their own customers, we as a complete service provider also offer – besides high quality cutting-dies – devices for quality control.”
With Marbach tools, creasing forces and folding resistance of packaging can be tested. In the run-up to, during but also after the production and up to final inspection. In this way the quality of the produced packages can be guaranteed and documented. How does this work? With the Marbach crease bend tester and its components samples are made. Depending on the application of the hydraulic laboratory press, the sample cutter or the marbapress. Samples are simply put into the crease bend tester. This tool then determines the creasing values. On the basis of these creasing values, decisions concerning material selection can be made. Moreover they also function as proof of the produced blanks’ quality. So a smooth packaging process is supported by the application of the crease bend tester.
Marbach has revised its hand-held tool for the insertion of nicks in cutting rules. The new marbanick|2+ is impressive with its integrated quick-change function, through which wedges of different widths can be quickly changed. In addition, its special design makes it possible to use different impact levels in one device.
Marbach has a new technology in its portfolio. The universal sheet delivery is a tool with which sheet delivery in the die-cutting machine can be extended so that the delivery of the paperboard sheets can be quickly and easily adapted to each individual job.
Marbach Werkzeugbau is currently working intensively on the topics of digitization and industry 4.0. The main focus here is on digital solutions for tools, processes and services. Within the scope of this project, Marbach has analyzed the future requirements of its customers. The results of this are the two components CONNECT|M and CONNECT|AR (Augmented Reality). CONNECT|M is a technology that intelligently connects the thermoforming tool, Marbach and the customer. CONNECT|AR is about virtual customer support via remote maintenance.
Marbach offers an extensive portfolio of dieboards. The suitable dieboard can be selected according to the requirements of the customer or the particular order. The dieboard forms the basis of a cutting-die. The contours of the packaging are first inserted into the dieboard, then the cutting and creasing rules are positioned and finally the appropriate rubber coating is applied.
