Marbach Die Supplies includes in its portfolio a very special hand tool for simple and fast insertion of waste nicks into cutting rules: the marbanick|2+. This is the follow-on development of the long-standing and time-proven marbanick and marbanick|2.
André Angermeir, General Sales Manager Marbach Die Supplies & Automation: "The marbanick was developed to quickly and easily make final adjustments to the waste nick directly at the die-cutting machine. This is sometimes required by on-site conditions. In order to drive in the nick cleanly, with the correct thickness and reproducibility, the marbanick, later the marbanick|2 have been available from Marbach for many years. The marbanick|2+ is the further development of the marbanick|2, and now makes the insertion of the nick even easier and more flexible.
Not only does the marbanick|2+ have 3 different raster levels that allow the metal carbide wedge to exert more defined force, the hand tool also comes with several wedges in different thicknesses – between 0.3 mm and 0.6 mm – and includes a quick-change system as well. Depending on the requirements and the material to be die-cut, up to 12 reproducible nick sizes can thus be created. And all this can be done quickly and easily with a one-hand operation.
Angermeir continues: "The motto of the marbanick|2+ is "Stronger. Faster. Further." Due to the different raster levels, the handheld device has more defined power. The plus in our marbanick|2+ stands for ongoing development: as the latest version which sets even deeper nicks with additional power proves. The one-handed handling makes it quick and easy to use, and the wedges can also be changed in just a few seconds. Already several hundreds of satisfied customers worldwide use the marbanick|2+ on a daily basis. That makes it one of our top sellers in the hand tool portfolio."
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.
