Marbach has recently presented its new technology designed to reduce the make-ready times for reverse cutting. Over the past few months, this has become more and more popular on the market under the name of "height-adjustable anvil".
Marketing Manager Tina Dost: "By using the reverse-cutting technology, packaging can be equipped with a tear-open mechanism. Highest precision is essential for reverse cutting, as the paperboard or corrugated board is not cut right through, but only scored from both sides. The reverse-cutting technology must work perfectly to ensure optimal functioning of the opening mechanism."
With the height-adjustable anvil, Marbach customers can quickly and easily adjust the height of the anvils of their cutting-die by placing foil underneath. Each block can be individually set-up and thus optimally adjusted. This ensures flawlessly functioning opening mechanisms and sales-boosting packaging at the point of sale.
Dost continues: "Our customers benefit from reduced make-ready times, functional packaging and easy handling when using height-adjustable anvils."
This is why more and more customers have been using the new Marbach technology in recent months.
There are many rotary machines for die-cutting corrugated board. The machines of the Japanese machine manufacturer Mitsubishi are currently making inroads in Europe. These machines place completely new demands on the tool technology used. Marbach has met the challenge and developed tools specially designed for these machines. For maximum productivity in rotary die-cutting.
The Joint Venture between Marbach and the Chinese machine manufacturer Masterwork has begun. Since July the company has been producing in China under the name Marbach Masterwork (Tianjin) Die Cutting Tools Co. Ltd., manufacturing cutting-dies for the national market. Besides its production in Malaysia, Marbach now has a second anchor in Asia. The range includes cutting-dies, stripping and blanking tools for the Chinese cigarette and folding carton industry.
Marbach supports its customers’ performance in their production. One customer who can confirm this is Manuel Nieto, Technical Manager at Quimica Comercial in Ecuador. Marbach and Quimica Comercial have been working together for two years. With great success. And with the support of Marbach, Quimica Comercial has been able to significantly increase its productivity.
In May Marbach presented its new hand-held device for inserting nicks in cutting rules. Since then, the marbanick|2 – which is the name of the new Marbach product – has been an outstanding success. With the new Marbach hand-held device, the size of the nick can be optimally adapted to the requirements of the user. The insertion of the nicks in different thicknesses is fast, safe and controlled.
