There are many rotary machines for die-cutting corrugated board. The machines of the Japanese machine manufacturer Mitsubishi are currently making inroads in Europe. These machines place completely new demands on the tool technology used. Marbach has met the challenge and developed tools specially designed for these machines. For maximum productivity in rotary die-cutting.
Mitsubishi machines employ a different technology than conventional rotary machines. They have an integrated self-ejecting system in which waste is stripped using ejector pins. However, this also means that conventional tools are unable to meet the requirements, so special rotary cutting-dies must be used. These tools are complex to manufacture and must be extremely precise.
Marbach developer Ingo Graham: "Over the last few months we have developed tools that are perfectly matched to the requirements of these special rotary machines. Customers who have already ordered the corresponding tools from us are very satisfied with them. They benefit from 100 % freedom from waste of their blanks as well as very high running speeds of their rotary machine. Die-cutting, folding and gluing are also carried out in a single operation. The productivity of this machine in combination with Marbach tool technology is therefore very high. For maximum performance in rotary die-cutting."
Marbach will continue to monitor market developments and will also in future offer the right solution for every requirement.
Marbach recently launched a new system under the name Embossing Register System IV. This allows embossing plates to be set up quickly and easily on embossing dies. With the Marbach system, users can save time when setting up the embossing dies and thus reduce machine downtimes.
Marbach has made a successful start to the new year with its Marbach Academy. In the first quarter of 2019, there were training courses on the subjects of paperboard and cigarette packaging as well as several individual training courses for customers.
Our US location in Charlotte is developing very positively. Following the start of production in 2012, Marbach America has grown into a stable revenue generator within the globally active Marbach Group. In order to be able to serve its customers even better, Marbach America has invested in a laser system of the latest generation. In March 2019 a laser system of the type mlas|compact-2 was installed at Marbach America.
Marbach is on course for expansion. After Marbach has founded subsidiaries in the USA, Malaysia, China and Mexico in the recent years, a second location in the USA will follow this summer. Since 2012 Marbach is already represented with a production site in Charlotte, North Carolina.
