Marbach Tool Manufacturing (Werkzeugbau) has in recent months increasingly sold tools with the Mafox|F system. This means that customers' demand for this Marbach technology has been growing significantly.
Clamp rings have an important influence in the thermoforming process. Mainly on the characteristics of the article edge. The more precise the clampring according to sealing rim design to the desired article shape, the better the product will be. That is why Marbach has developed the Mafox|F. This is an exchangeable clamp ring, with which different cup designs of sealing rims can be quite easily produced with the same tool. With the Mafox|F, clamp rings can be optimally matched to the product that is to be manufactured. Different foil thicknesses in one tool are also possible without time-consuming clamp ring changes.
Marbach Director of Sales Asia Thomas Reinhardt: “We have in the meantime equipped more than 10 tools with Mafox|F. The feedback from our customers has been very positive. The major difference is that Marbach is changing a tall barrel looking like part and not only a small ring at the downholder front. This allows uninterrupted fast cooling of the clamp ring, and thus ensures a perfect rapid cooling of the sealing rim, which in turn counteracts the lifting up of the edge." The results are high-quality plastic cups.
But it's not only the cup quality that is important with Mafox|F, but also the production speed. Because when this Marbach technology is used in combination with an MT|easy aluminum cutting plate or the sandwich steel plate system, it is possible to implement quickly replaceable seal bead contours in the tool without speed reductions.
Marbach is already looking forward to the opening of drupa on 16 June 2020. The most important international trade fair for the printing industry, which takes place every four years, is a very special highlight for Marbach. In addition to its latest innovations, Marbach will present its extended portfolio of packaging services in Duesseldorf.
With its calibration tool package, Marbach ensures that its customers can quickly and easily re-adjust the components of their die-cutting machine for flat die-cutting of corrugated board. This results in a significant reduction of set-up and make-ready times.
Marbach started its training program one and a half years ago. Under the name "Marbach Academy. More knowledge. More skills." Today Marbach offers practice-oriented training courses in all aspects of die-cutting packaging. The new training program for 2020 is now available
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies includes materials for the rubbering of cutting-dies. When it comes to rubber materials, the most important thing is that they are resistant and durable. When used in the right place in the cutting-die, they ensure that the paperboard material is ejected optimally during the cutting process. In addition, they ensure the stability of the nicks and thus provide smooth production processes in the die-cutting machine.
