Marbach has added a new blanking tool to its product range. The alublanker is, as its name suggests, made of aluminum and completely CNC-milled. One of the first customers to use the alublanker is Marbach's long-standing partner MPS in Obersulm - a company of the Consumer Packaging Business of the WestRock Group. The Obersulm site produces high-quality folding cartons for the international perfume and cosmetics industry.
Eugen Schneider, Die-Cutting Manager at WestRock Obersulm: "We produced the first order with the new alublanker from Marbach. The performance achieved with it has fully convinced our machine operators. The alublanker is very precise, very light and can be easily set-up by just one operator. Despite its low weight, it is solid and the passage of the waste grid has also been very stable. We will definitely continue to use the new alublanker in the future."
The Marbach alublanker is completely made of one piece and produced in one milling operation. The design in aluminum and the associated low weight means optimized handling of the female blanking tools. The one-man operation saves time and personnel costs.
In addition, the high precision of the alublanker ensures perfect stacking, reduced set-up times, high packaging quality with no marks at all, as well as high machine speeds. For smooth production processes and maximum performance in the blanking station.
Marbach has published a new whitepaper for tobacco applications on its knowledge platform, the Experience Hub.
Marbach provides solutions to ensure top performance for its customers. In order to make packaging more attractive and to visually highlight individual elements of packing, the embellishment process of embossing is often used. As an eye-catcher, it increases the impact of a package at the point of sale. This then has a sales-promoting effect for the packaged product. If the embossing process is not integrated into the die-cutting process but is carried out separately, this is known as embossing and die-cutting in two passes. This is more time-consuming than an embossing process integrated into the die-cutting process. But here, too, set-up times can be minimized.
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies (MDS) includes machines, equipment and materials for diemaking. In particular, MDS has expanded its range of manual devices in recent months. Among the most popular of these is the mcut|multi multifunctional cutting tool. It cuts rule materials quickly and without deformation. Plastika Mostar in Slovenia is already using mcut|multi and is very impressed.
Marbach supports its customers in producing packaging that stands out at the point of sale. One popular method for visually enhancing and refining packaging is embossing. This can be used to highlight individual elements in particular.
