Marbach Die Supplies has launched its new manual bending device. Under the name mbend Marbach is offering a special manual device for bending steel rules. Easy handling, with high precision and absolute durability characterize this device.
André Angermeir, Sales Manager at Marbach Die Supplies: "The mbend is very solid and flexible. With it, fine 1.5pt cutting rules are formed as perfectly as solid 4pt cutting rules. Further flexibility is provided by its extensive equipment including bending inserts: More than 100 shapes are included in the standard set, so that the user can individually assemble the required bending shapes according to the application. Thanks to its ideally selected lever length and its favorable transmission ratio, the bending process with the mbend requires a minimum of effort. In daily operation, this is another great advantage which distinguishes the Marbach handheld device and so reduces the work load of the production staff."
The special surface coating prevents rust and makes the mbend very scratch-resistant. Due to its design it is resilient and durable. And its laterally adjustable gauge ensures optimum repeated accuracy when bending.
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.
