“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.
An exciting year comes to an end for Marbach. For many years now it has been Marbach's tradition to make donations to charities instead of giving presents to customers at Christmas. When selecting the recipients, it is important to the Marbach management to divide money between internationally renowned and regionally respected institutions. This year Marbach has donated 8,000 euros to Help - Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe e.V. and has also supported Offene Hilfen gGmbH Heilbronn with a donation of 2,000 euros.
Through its Marbach Die Supplies & Automation (MDS&A) division, Marbach sells machines to die-makers. The currently most successful laser system in Marbach's portfolio is the mlas|compact-2.
Marbach is known for its solutions designed to meet all requirements. For applications in the pharmaceutical sector, Marbach has specific tools in its portfolio that have been specially designed for this field of application.
