To ensure that in future Marbach customers with large-format machines will also benefit from the many advantages of digital zone levelling, Marbach now offers the DZL|plateXL.
Tolerances due to unevenness in the cutting platen are part of the everyday life of a packaging manufacturer, and are mostly caused by wear. As small as the differences in the platen may be, their significance for quality and processing speed is huge.
Ralf Nuyken, industry manager corrugated board at Marbach: "We have already very successfully established our DZL|plate digital zone levelling for cardboard machines on the market for several years. Now, with the DZL|plateXL, we have developed a solution with a two-part protection plate explicitly for large-format corrugated die-cutting machines."
The two-part protection plate of the DZL|plateXL is individually provided with a printed height profile and thus adapted to the respective conditions of the die-cutting machine. The DZL|plateXL thus permanently takes over the zone make-ready of the machine by compensating for height differences in the die-cutting platen area. This ensures optimum pressure conditions during die-cutting and significantly reduces make-ready times for each individual job.

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.
