Marbach has been for many years a specialist for equipping packages with elegant opening mechanisms. This requires highest precision. In order to adjust tools quickly and precisely with reverse cutting, Marbach offers a special technology: the height-adjustable anvil. Now optimized it ensures even more accuracy when setting up tools with reverse cutting.
During the reverse cutting process the paperboard material is not die-cut through but scored from both sides in shifted positions. This creates a special tearing mechanism that is becoming increasingly popular for both folding boxes and corrugated board packaging.
Marbach developer Rainer Reizammer: "We have optimized our height-adjustable anvil. The new version offers many advantages for the user. Because the anvil is integrated in the dieboard, die-cutting pressure is directly transmitted. Compression of the dieboard therefore becomes impossible. Between the two aluminum blocks there are underlay foils. With these foils, the height of each individual reverse cutting can be adjusted quickly and easily in height and optimally set-up. For our customers, this means easy handling, highest precision and a stable scoring result over the entire production run. For optimally functioning opening mechanisms."
This Marbach product is now available under the name "split height-adjustable anvil".
Marbach has added a new blanking tool to its product range. The alublanker is, as its name suggests, made of aluminum and completely CNC-milled. One of the first customers to use the alublanker is Marbach's long-standing partner MPS in Obersulm - a company of the Consumer Packaging Business of the WestRock Group. The Obersulm site produces high-quality folding cartons for the international perfume and cosmetics industry.
Marbach has published a new whitepaper for tobacco applications on its knowledge platform, the Experience Hub.
Marbach provides solutions to ensure top performance for its customers. In order to make packaging more attractive and to visually highlight individual elements of packing, the embellishment process of embossing is often used. As an eye-catcher, it increases the impact of a package at the point of sale. This then has a sales-promoting effect for the packaged product. If the embossing process is not integrated into the die-cutting process but is carried out separately, this is known as embossing and die-cutting in two passes. This is more time-consuming than an embossing process integrated into the die-cutting process. But here, too, set-up times can be minimized.
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies (MDS) includes machines, equipment and materials for diemaking. In particular, MDS has expanded its range of manual devices in recent months. Among the most popular of these is the mcut|multi multifunctional cutting tool. It cuts rule materials quickly and without deformation. Plastika Mostar in Slovenia is already using mcut|multi and is very impressed.
