Marbach offers a special storage system for cutting-dies with its aptly named Marbach Die Storage System (MDSS). The MDSS is available for flat cutting-die packages of up to 2,000 mm format and recently, also for rotary dies up to a diameter of 690mm.
Ingo Graham, Product Manager Marbach Die Supplies: "The MDSS supports good internal logistics at our customers. An MDSS consists of a rack frame into which individual tool cassettes can be directly inserted, or in the rotation section tools can be directly inserted on holding rails - each with the appropriate handling systems. In the MDSS, the tools are not only stored in a protected environment, but can also be found quickly and are accessible at any time. Depending on the MDSS design and size, various handling systems are available to transport the tools quickly and safely to their place of use."
The MDSS systems from Marbach have a modular design and can be configured according to customer requirements. Different cassettes or rail sizes and handling systems are available for this purpose.
Graham: "There are countless configuration possibilities for an MDSS. It can be installed as a small storage system directly at the die-cutting machine for continuous operation. But it can also be installed in a separate warehouse with a few storage locations or as a large storage system with several thousand storage spaces on multiple levels. Due to the flexibility of the MDSS system, even special solutions due to space conditions can be easily implemented."
The MDSS offers extensive possibilities for the design of a cutting-die storage system.
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.
