Under the name Marbach Die Supplies & Automation, Marbach offers customized materials for packaging manufacturers and die-makers centered on the topic of die-cutting. Marbach has expanded its portfolio in time for the turn of the year and can now offer its customers an even greater variety of materials.
Ingo Graham, Product Manager Marbach Die Supplies & Automation: "A wide range of materials are required for performance in packaging and also cutting-die production. Packaging manufacturers need cutting plates, make-ready tapes, crease channels, grinding discs for inserting nicks in cutting rules as well as spare rubber strips. For their production, cutting-die manufacturers need special small tools and hand-held tools, dieboard materials, cutting rules, creasing rules or rubber plates, as well as matrixes - and much more. In order to supply our customers with materials in the best possible way, we have expanded our portfolio. For example, we have recently started offering the new mhard|r+ rotary cutting rules for high demands in corrugated board. Having specially ground cutting edge geometry and higher cutting edge hardness than conventional cutting rules, they are the best solution for use with thicker material grammages. For best cutting results with long service life."
The Marbach materials are characterized by their quality but also by the fact that they have been tried and proven in daily use at Marbach’s cutting-die production. Materials from Marbach stand for best tool performance in the die-cutter.
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.
