“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 has expanded its packaging services step by step over the last few months. Customers who have a packaging sample and need the corresponding CAD data for it, can have it created by Marbach and technically checked at the same time. This allows packaging manufacturers to concentrate fully on their core competencies.
Marbach has been on an expansion course for years. In autumn, Marbach will open its new location in Michigan City, Indiana. The newly created facility in Michigan City will complement Marbach America's current resources at the Marbach site in Charlotte, NC. Preparations to open the new Marbach office are already in full swing.
Marbach Werkzeugbau is looking forward to the upcoming K fair in Düsseldorf. This will take place from 16 to 23 October 2019. Marbach will be represented with a 94 m² stand and will present its new products to the visitors of this important plastics fair.
Marbach will take part in the Night of Apprenticeship in Heilbronn on the 26th of September 2019. On this day young people will be able to experience Marbach under the motto "Pack the world. With an apprenticeship at Marbach." Potential apprentices will be able to inform themselves about apprenticeships and studies offered at Marbach and also get to know the company.
