In 2009, Marbach launched its first ecological dieboard on the market under the name "Marbach greenplate". The idea behind the development of this dieboard is more up-to-date today than ever before.
The main material for a cutting-die is a dieboard made of birch wood. In 2009, the raw material birch became very scarce. At that time, this shortage led to decreasing supply security – because without sufficient birch material, there could be no cutting-dies. As a solution, Marbach then developed its new, ecologically sustainable dieboard: The Marbach greenplate.
Marbach Sales Manager Jan Brunner: "Today, this topic is more up-to-date than ever. Because, at the moment there are again supply shortages for various raw materials. Fortunately, we took preventive measures in time and have stocked up with the most important raw materials for cutting-dies. This will ensure supply security for our customers. But, with products like our greenplate, we are providing even more supply security."
And why is that? The Marbach greenplate dieboard consists to 30% of the primary raw material birch, 70% of the board is made of environmentally friendly secondary material from ecologically sustainable forests. The innovative structure of the Marbach greenplate increases wood utilization and ensures that significantly less birch wood needs to be used than with conventional cutting-dies. This means 3 times as many tools can be produced from the same amount of birch material. In addition, the greenplate saves CO2 emissions during transport thanks to the special material selection, and thus saves important resources and protects the environment.
Brunner continues, "But another important factor for our customers, in addition to the security of supply and the environmental component, are the technical advantages of this dieboard material. This is because the greenplate offers the user numerous technical advantages in packaging production. The plate's excellent flatness, high compressive strength and high dimensional stability ensure short set-up times, high machine speeds and excellent storage durability."
With greenplate, ecology meets economy: an innovation that is more up-to-date than ever and which has been used successfully by numerous Marbach customers – since its market launch more than 12 years ago.
We will once again be an exhibitor at drupa 2024! This is the most important international trade fair for the printing industry and will take place in Düsseldorf from the 28th of May to the 7th of June 2024. We will present our products and services in the fields of performance, digitalization and sustainability.
We offer various blank separation solutions for separating blanks in packaging production. One of these technologies, which is extremely popular on the market, is the marbablanker. This is because this blanking tool is characterized above all by short set-up times and good handling during packaging production.
In addition to our portfolio of cutting-dies, we also offer suitable storage systems. The Marbach Die Storage System (MDSS) has been designed for optimally functioning in-house logistics at packaging manufacturers.
The Marbach MDSS storage system consists of special rack frames into which individual die cassettes are inserted. It has a modular design and can be configured according to customer requirements.
