Marbach is known in the market for its individual solutions. Also for producing special cutting-dies for thick materials. One of these materials with very special requirements is honeycomb board.
Honeycomb board is a light but very stable cardboard due to its honeycomb structure. And is mainly used for transport protection as an environmentally friendly alternative to plastic.
Die-cutting thick materials presents a great challenge. For here a very special tool is required. It must be very stable, resistant and robust. Additionally, the cutting-die must be specially equipped to pass through the thick material and deliver optimal cutting results. For this reason, Marbach’s honeycomb cardboard tools are equipped with particularly robust serrated cutting rules, matching counter plates and a special ejector technology.
Michael Kiesel, Sales Manager at Marbach: "Our cutting-dies for honeycomb board are not only characterized by their special equipment. The quality of the materials used and the optimal matching of the individual equipment elements are also essential. With our tools these are adjusted in the best possible way to the individual requirements of the customer and to the honeycomb cardboard used. The results are smooth die-cutting processes and optimum die-cutting results."
The special tools described above can be used for other thick materials such as cutting door interiors, edge protection, connectors and packaging trays.
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.
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.
