“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.
Marbach Automation & Service now offers a cleaning device for corrugated board die-cutting machines: the mplaten|cleaner. With it, the platen of a die-cutting machine can be cleaned efficiently by the machine operator and the machine’s productivity increased.
Marbach is approaching the end of an eventful year. 2017 has been characterized by innovative products that Marbach has brought to market to enable better customer performance. As well as investments in machinery and buildings. But with all that, Marbach has not forgotten people who are less fortunate. And that's why this Heilbronn-based company has remained true for many years to one key principle: "donating instead of giving". When selecting the recipients of donations, it is important for the Marbach management to divide the money between internationally well-known and regionally respected institutions. This year Marbach donated 7,000 euros to the aid organization Help – Help for Self-Help e.V. and 3,000 euros to the Kindersolbad gGmbH in Bad Friedrichshall.
Marbach Tool Manufacturing (Werkzeugbau) supplies customers worldwide with thermoforming tools for the packaging industry. As a result, the company can be found at trade fairs around the globe. This was also the case at the 9th International Plastic Fair (IPF) in Japan which took place from 24th to 28th October 2017 in Tokyo, Japan.
Marbach has focused on the topic: performance. Especially performance for its customers. Demanding of itself: to offer the right solution for every requirement. Against this background, Marbach has extended still further its knowledge and abilities during the last months. Besides innovative products, Marbach also offers its customers comprehensive services – and recently training courses.
