Marbach Die Supplies has expanded its creasing make-ready portfolio. From now on, the right counter die will be available for every requirement. So that nothing stands in the way of smooth packaging production and visually appealing creasing results. In addition to the simplest variant - the creasing matrix - Marbach offers rillma material and counter plates that can be individually adapted to the customer's requirements.
Ingo Graham, product manager Marbach Die Supplies: "In our new material catalog we have extended the product range. Regardless of whether our customer’s clients have orders for small runs or require a high-tech counter plate for large runs with best creasing quality – we can provide the suitable material for the counter plate."
For a few creases in the blank and for small runs, Marbach offers matrix. These are available in different sizes, in standard design or for special geometries. The creasing matrixes are a do-it-yourself version as they can be cut by the user. They are characterized by their flexibility and quick operational readiness.
The rillma matrix offers a higher quality. It has been on the market for decades and used with great success. It is particularly suitable for short runs and simple requirements. It is characterized by its favorable price and simplicity of use. The raw material is available from Marbach in various designs and sizes.
Steel counter plates
Steel counter plates may be used for long runs with high demands on the creasing quality and the service life of the counter die, as well as for repeat jobs. The advantages of steel counter plates are a smooth production process, high machine speeds and excellent creasing results. Finishing techniques can also be integrated quickly and easily. Marbach cuts the steel counter plates to the contour required by the customer. They are available in various designs, formats and hardnesses. Suitable for one or more machines.
With Marbach's counter plates, there is always the right solution for every requirement.
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.
