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 has continuously expanded its services in the past year. The newest member of the Marbach service family is the Marbach Performance Boost package. By which, Marbach supports its consulting service which makes its own process know-how available to its customers and thereby significantly increasing their productivity during the die-cutting process.
Marbach has been using for some time now a new rubber for rubbering cutting-dies. The name of this high-performance material is flexpower. Certified by ISEGA for use in the food industry, this rubber offers numerous advantages to operators. Marbach uses flexpower in corrugated board tools (both flat and rotary) and also sells it as raw material.
Marbach is one of the large material suppliers in Germany. Under the name Marbach Die Supplies, Marbach offers materials for packaging manufacturers that meet the requirements in the field of die-cutting. In order to support its customers even more in increasing their performance, Marbach has expanded its material portfolio.
Marbach was present at the IADD Odyssey in Atlanta Georgia from May 1 to 3, 2019. At this event Marbach showcased its latest technologies in the fields of die-cutting technology as well as machines and materials for cutting-die production. More than 250 visitors showed particular interest in Marbach and its technologies. During the three days many interesting conversations took place at the two Marbach stands.
