Marbach has further optimized its blanking technology. At FachPack 2016, Marbach presented for the first time its new blanking presser marbapusher|p. Since then it has enjoyed great popularity amongst the customers. Therefore, as of now, it will be used as a standard at Marbach. This means that all male marbablanker tools will be delivered with marbapusher|p in the future.
This system can be used for both presser plates and custom-shaped presser bars. Jan Brunner, Head of Business Development at Marbach: “Our challenge has been to develop a presser with a high degree of flexibility for the customer, that is durable and doesn’t take up a lot of storage space. Our marbapusher|p meets these requirements. From now on, thanks to its special design, a tool with a presser plate can be used in every kind of machine frame. So the waste grid is better fixed in position and higher machine speeds are possible. Moreover the marbapusher|p is being produced with long-life material which significantly increases life-span compared to other pressers in telescope version.”
Furthermore, there is a new adapter bar for the Marbach entry-level blanking tool – lightblanker. With this new adapter bar, existing blanking tools can be used on the new Marbach lightblanker frame quickly and easily.
Jan Brunner: “By now the majority of our customers count on our new blanking technologies. The lightblanker is characterized by its low weight and cost-efficient price. It is perfect for jobs where blanks have been separated manually before. For higher requirements, we have developed the marbablanker. It perfectly suits the operators' needs and allows a smooth production process. For very small blanks, we have the special nick-breaking solution. In this way we can offer our customers the right solution for every requirement.”
Marbach has a new technology in its portfolio. The universal sheet delivery is a tool with which sheet delivery in the die-cutting machine can be extended so that the delivery of the paperboard sheets can be quickly and easily adapted to each individual job.
Marbach Werkzeugbau is currently working intensively on the topics of digitization and industry 4.0. The main focus here is on digital solutions for tools, processes and services. Within the scope of this project, Marbach has analyzed the future requirements of its customers. The results of this are the two components CONNECT|M and CONNECT|AR (Augmented Reality). CONNECT|M is a technology that intelligently connects the thermoforming tool, Marbach and the customer. CONNECT|AR is about virtual customer support via remote maintenance.
Marbach offers an extensive portfolio of dieboards. The suitable dieboard can be selected according to the requirements of the customer or the particular order. The dieboard forms the basis of a cutting-die. The contours of the packaging are first inserted into the dieboard, then the cutting and creasing rules are positioned and finally the appropriate rubber coating is applied.
Through its Die Supplies & Automation (MDS&A) division Marbach sells machines to die-makers. In addition to laser systems and water jet systems, Marbach has milling machines in its portfolio. The mgrav|2 is its most successful milling machine.
