Marbach has launched a solution for hotfoiling called the thinplate system, which allows female dies and packaging layout to be aligned quickly and very precisely.
The thinplate is a system in which hotfoiling dies are pre-assembled on a special steel plate to perfectly match the print layout. For maximum flexibility, the female dies are mounted so that they can be moved and quickly and precisely aligned to the layout as required. Archiving this position ensures that there is virtually no set-up time for a repeat job.
The thinplate system stands for drastically reduced set-up times for repeat jobs and high-quality embellished packaging.
Marbach not only manufactures tools for flat die-cutting machines, but also for rotary die-cutting machines. For rotary die-cutting of corrugated board, the trend is towards the use of rotary machines with active stripping technology. Marbach has developed specially equipped rotary tools for this purpose, which ensure high productivity on such machines.
Marbach offers a very extensive portfolio of cutting-dies. Marbach also produces tools for die-cutting very thick materials such as honeycomb corrugated board. Such materials place very special demands on the technology used.
Silvio Gruber, who has been responsible for the corrugated board division at Marbach, has gone into well-earned retirement shortly before Christmas. Until his recent retirement, Mr. Gruber worked for Marbach in various management positions for a period of 37 years.
