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.

In 1923, the Marbach company began as a 3-man workshop in Heilbronn, Baden-Württemberg. 100 years later, the small craftsman business has become a global market leader operating worldwide. Today, the Marbach Group, with its 1,600 employees around the world, is a key partner for the global packaging industry.
Such a long company history cannot be taken for granted – in Germany only a little more than 1% of the companies ever reach 100 years. The fact that we have managed to achieve this, is due to many different factors.
Our story reads like an exciting novel.
In addition to materials for packaging manufacturers, our division Marbach Die Supplies also supplies equipment for the die-cutting process. This includes two mobile workbenches mbench|smart and mbench|pro. These are distinguished by their flexible application possibilities.
The workbenches in the mbench series are not only equipped with smooth-running heavy-duty wheels for flexible use, but also offer an ideal work surface, storage space for tools and materials, as well as the option of fitting them with suitable hand tools. This means that tools can be repaired and processed in a minimum of space.
With the Marbach lower pin unit, we have a tool on the market that is mainly used for jobs where the requirements for waste-free die-cut blanks are very high. This is because waste is stripped in an especially reliable way with the lower pin unit in these applications.
Lower pin units are used in the stripping station of a die-cutting machine. They are particularly useful when very small waste parts have to be stripped and when maximum reliability is required during stripping.
For us, an eventful but also successful year is coming to an end. Right at the beginning of the year, the war in Ukraine caused market turbulence and triggered a procurement crisis. We met these challenges with good planning and inventory management.
For many years now, we have traditionally donated 10,000 € to aid projects at Christmas under the motto "Donations instead of gifts". This year, due to the difficult situation in Ukraine, the management of Marbach decided to donate the entire amount to aid projects in connection with the war in Ukraine.
