“Marbach Die Supplies” delivers materials for the production of cutting-dies to die-makers worldwide. At the urgent request of our customers, Marbach has now supplemented its portfolio. For some time past, a new kind of rubbering has been used for the Marbach cutting-die marbaspeed|r: it is called flexpower. From now on, this very successful rubber will also be available from Marbach as a raw material.
With its new type of structure and special technical features, flexpower is a high-performance rubber that provides highest die-cutting efficiency in packaging production. The new material is characterized by its compression force, its rebound elasticity and its durability.
Marbach customers that already use this new rubber are delighted by the die-cutting results.
Marbach developer Ingo Graham has been involved in numerous tests at customers on-site. The test results speak for themselves: “With the new structure, flexpower can be compressed more than conventional rubber, which leads to significant advantages for die-cutting quality. The high rebound elasticity allows very fast and efficient ejection of waste. This provides the best waste guidance in rotary die-cutting – for waste-free blanks and highest machine speeds. In flat die-cutting, the technical features of flexpower rubber ensure a smooth production process.”
One of the test customers, who has also worked together with Marbach in compositioning the rubber, is Andreas Strasser, production manager at Flatz: “We are very happy with the new rubber. With both its functionality and its durability. It meets our requirements completely. Where other kinds of rubber are already worn-out and have to be exchanged, the functionality of flexpower is still perfect.”
Flexpower is available in two degrees of hardness. So the right hardness can be chosen for every spot in the tool. For best functionality.
Since July 2017, the inventory of Marbach has included an on-site die-cutting machine from Brausse. After having used the past few months to provide employee training courses, initial customer training classes and to conduct product tests, the Marbach Academy will soon be officially opened. If you are interested in a training course, you can request a training brochure at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, all information about the Marbach training courses can also be found on the company's homepage www.marbach.com/trainings.
Marbach Werkzeugbau (Tool Manufacturing) will be represented at this year's SPE European Thermoforming Conference.

This is where Europe's leading representatives of thermoforming technology network. The participants are processors, end consumers, material suppliers, tool manufacturers, machine and equipment suppliers.
Marbach is known for its innovative strength. And for delivering maximum performance to its customers. Numerous customers of the cutting-die manufacturer have now confirmed that this is not just an advertising statement. Marbach is more than pleased with the positive response and will undoubtedly present further news from its innovation department in 2018.
For several months now Marbach has been equipping its premium tools marbaspeed, for flat die-cutting, and marbaspeed|r, for rotary die-cutting, with its new special rubber flexpower. This new type of rubbering stands for durability and best die-cutting performance. Statistics show the extent of its success: Marbach sold more than 2,000 rotary dies for corrugated board alone in the marbaspeed|r version.
