Under the name Marbach Automation & Service, Marbach supplies cutting-die manufacturers with machines and equipment. Now Marbach has upgraded its laser system mlas|compact-1 with an additional option, a so-called scanning head. The prototype of this system has been supporting Marbach's own production facility in Heilbronn since 2017. With great success. This is why Marbach is now offering this unique option to its customers. For even more performance in their production.
Marbach understands the scanning head option of the laser system mlas|compact-1 as an engraving function for effective and machine-friendly marking of dieboards, which requires considerably less time per job and achieves excellent engraving results.
Marbach Sales Manager Samuel Vial: "There are many systems on the market that are similar to ours. However, they are unable to provide the same results. Our scanning head is unique. Because the Marbach scanning head works with on-the-fly technology and has also special software that compensates for the unevenness of dieboards thus ensuring maximum engraving accuracy ".
With the on-the-fly technology, all four axes of the laser system move simultaneously during scanning-head engraving. This means that the scanner is moved with maximum acceleration during the entire engraving process and can therefore run the program without downtimes. This not only ensures the highest engraving speeds, but also uninterrupted and smooth engraving results with constant line-width. And all this across the entire processing area.
Marbach Head of Development Karsten Kosyra: "The heart of the Marbach scan head is the new software that controls it. In practice, it is often the case that the dieboard of a cutting-die is uneven. In such cases, conventional systems produce considerable deviations in the scan result. Not so with the Marbach scan head. Our sensor technology recognizes the topography of the workpiece and calculates these into the scan process. This has the advantage that even substantial unevenness is compensated for, so that precise engraving is achieved at every position."
The time advantage is enormous especially those dies with many engravings (inscriptions): The Marbach system is more than 10 times faster than conventional engraving with the laser cutting head.
With the new Marbach laser, users therefore not only achieve excellent engraving quality but also save valuable production time, so that they have more laser capacity per day. For best performance and quick amortization of the additional scanhead option.
Marbach is already looking forward to the opening of drupa on 16 June 2020. The most important international trade fair for the printing industry, which takes place every four years, is a very special highlight for Marbach. In addition to its latest innovations, Marbach will present its extended portfolio of packaging services in Duesseldorf.
With its calibration tool package, Marbach ensures that its customers can quickly and easily re-adjust the components of their die-cutting machine for flat die-cutting of corrugated board. This results in a significant reduction of set-up and make-ready times.
Marbach started its training program one and a half years ago. Under the name "Marbach Academy. More knowledge. More skills." Today Marbach offers practice-oriented training courses in all aspects of die-cutting packaging. The new training program for 2020 is now available
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies includes materials for the rubbering of cutting-dies. When it comes to rubber materials, the most important thing is that they are resistant and durable. When used in the right place in the cutting-die, they ensure that the paperboard material is ejected optimally during the cutting process. In addition, they ensure the stability of the nicks and thus provide smooth production processes in the die-cutting machine.
