Marbach, launched its digital zone levelling technology at drupa 2016. The product’s success was almost immediate: half a year later, over 100 die-cutting machines worldwide have been equipped with digital zone levelling. A strongly increasing trend. Marbach offers its product currently in 76, 102-106 and 142-145 format. More are already planned.
But what can this product do? Jan Brunner, Head of Marbach Business Development: “Digital zone levelling, levels out the height deviations of the cutting platen. So now there’s no need for any conventional area patching that previously had to be made for every single job. Once a digital zone levelling is set up, it lasts for months. And provides best die-cutting performance and short make-ready times for the operator.”
The customers that already work with digital zone levelling are excited. From international manufacturers for folding boxes through trade finishers to family-owned companies. They have all realized the advantages the Marbach product implies. Many started with one machine. And equipped further machines on the basis of those test results.
A leading German manufacturer of folding boxes uses digital zone levelling already in different plants: “We are happy with this product. Time-consuming patching, that we had to execute for every single job, is no longer necessary. And that is why our productivity has increased enormously.”
Digital zone levelling has also convinced a traditional family-owned US based company: “We can patch-up less with the new vetronite plate from Marbach. And the handling is super easy for us.”
How does digital zone levelling work? The operator makes an impression of the machine using a standardized procedure. Marbach then creates a new, modified cover plate for the make-ready sheet. Individually made for this machine. This levels out the height deviations of the cutting platen. So manual area patching of every single tool isn't necessary. Digital zone levelling ensures, together with the Marbach innovations magic sheet and mpower|+ die-cutting, next to no patching-up. For highest performance in packaging production.
Marbach has recently introduced its new split height-adjustable anvil for reducing make-ready times during reverse cutting. Since its introduction Marbach has sold this innovative technology many times over. Customers using tools with a split height-adjustable anvil are very impressed.
Marbach has developed a new bottom pin unit including special high precision lower pins which has been successfully used by the first customers. With a bottom pin unit, waste is safely stripped during the production of packaging. Customer Establecimento Grafico Impresores from Argentina is enthusiastic about the performance of the new Marbach product.
Marbach has been working at full speed to up its website for the upcoming drupa 2020 and give it a design relaunch. Even though drupa will not take place until 2021, the company does not want to withhold the new website from its customers.
