Marbach has introduced its latest generation of the rotary cutting-die marbaspeed|r at drupa and FachPack. Having positive impact: the demand has risen significantly. Various customers already have marbaspeed|r in operation. The trend is upward.
Premium tool in rotary die-cutting
What is special about the marbaspeed|r is its particular features and production methods. Marbach sales director Silvio Gruber: “marbaspeed|r is our premium tool in the area of rotary die-cutting of corrugated board. It is always equipped with the newest materials and produced with the most current production techniques.”
Another special feature: marbaspeed|r is equipped with the new Marbach high-performance rubber flexpower. This is characterized by its technical attributes. It meets the requirements of cutting-die rubber perfectly through its enormous flexibility and its long tool life span. Recently Marbach has also used flexpower rubber for flat corrugated board cutting-dies.
Gruber continues: “marbaspeed|r tools stand for high productivity, almost zero wastage as well as long-life spans.”
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.
