Marbach is known for best tool performance. The Heilbronn based cutting-die manufacturer goes even further. With its new development. The digital zone levelling. It compensates and neutralizes wear and production caused disparities in the die-cutting machine.
Jan Brunner, Head of business development at Marbach: “Every die-cutting machine is subject to wear and tear in the daily production process. That’s why previously it was necessary to set-up all worn-out areas with make-ready tape. For every single tool. This significantly increased costs. Time. And money. Because the machine wasn’t working. Digital zone levelling makes this process much more efficient. There needs to be only one zone levelling. This lasts for the next months. And for the other tools that are placed in the machine.”
But how does digital zone levelling work? The operator makes an impression of the machine using a standardized process. With this, Marbach produces a new, modified vetronite plate for the make-ready sheet. Individually for every machine. It compensates machine based height tolerances. So you need no area make-ready for every single tool.
Together with the Marbach innovations magic sheet and mpower+, digital zone levelling almost completely eliminates make-ready time. For highest performance in packaging production.
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.
Marbach was present at the IADD Odyssey in Atlanta Georgia from May 1 to 3, 2019. At this event Marbach showcased its latest technologies in the fields of die-cutting technology as well as machines and materials for cutting-die production. More than 250 visitors showed particular interest in Marbach and its technologies. During the three days many interesting conversations took place at the two Marbach stands.
