Last year, we introduced our two technologies crease plate die|+ and crease plate die|rc for die-cutting tobacco packaging. In the meantime, large numbers of customers have successfully used crease plate die|+ and crease plate die|rc and are enthusiastic about the performance that can be achieved with these two new die solutions.
The crease plate die|+ is used for cigarette layouts such as hinge lid or bevel edge. This technology creases with a defined gauge block. This means that the make ready can be carried out very precisely and the creasing is uniform. This has a positive effect on the quality of the packaging blanks and the packaging speeds.
The crease plate die|rc solution has been specially developed for round corner packaging.
Bernhard Reisser, Director Sector Folding Carton Industry at Marbach: "The special effect of round corner packaging is created by the fact that several creases are made close together when the packaging is cut. This looks great on the finished packaging, but places high demands on the tool. This is because round corner creases generate significantly different forces on the paperboard than standard creases. If the creases cannot be made ready individually, it is almost impossible with some board materials to achieve high-quality cuts with the creasing specifications given by the end customer. But with our crease plate die|rc technology, we achieve exactly that: the make ready of the cross creases of a crease plate die can be decoupled from the round corner creases. This simplifies the make-ready of the cutting-die and the adjustment to the creasing parameters specified by the cigarette manufacturer, even with changing cardboard materials and variations in cardboard quality. This ensures high-quality round corner blanks with which the cigarette manufacturers' high demands on packaging quality and packing speed can be optimally met."
These new solutions are already being used by many customers where they are very popular due to their positive effects on the quality of the packaging blanks and the performance in the packaging production and packing process.
Our division Marbach Die Supplies not only supplies materials and equipment for packaging manufacturers, but also entire in-house dieshop concepts including the required equipment.
We are well-known for our extensive portfolio. Thus, we also supply the global plastics industry with cutting-dies. The high-precision Marbach steel rule dies are designed for use directly after the thermoforming process. Here they ensure the reliable separation of plastic cups and lids.
Marbach Die Supplies not only supplies materials, but also machines for cutting-die production. One machine that stands for the highest efficiency in diemaking is the mjet|1. This compact waterjet machine cuts the ejector rubber for a cutting-die automatically and with absolute precision.
With our blanking tool alublanker, we feature a tool in our portfolio that has managed to convince numerous customers. This is because the alublanker is not only characterized by its low weight, but also by its high productivity.
The alublanker is a high-precision blanking tool lower part, made completely from one piece and in one milling operation. The separating grid is made of aluminum and is completely CNC milled.
