At the end of 2017, the Heilbronn-based die-manufacturer Marbach launched a platen cleaning device for large-format die-cutting machines. As of now Marbach can also offer this device for small-format paperboard machines.
Sandra Hemberger, Sales Marbach Automation and Service: "Our mplaten|cleaner has made a brilliant start. In the last few months we have already sold more than 50 corrugated board versions. And the trend is upward. The paperboard version, which is now available, had already been pre-ordered many times before its market launch."
This shows how well Marbach has been able to meet the requirements of the market with its new platen cleaning device. Those customers who use a mplaten|cleaner are completely satisfied with it. Sandra Hemberger continues: "The users are enthusiastic about the fast and very easy handling of mplaten|cleaner. Another obvious advantage: similar devices available on the market are significantly more expensive than ours. Then cleaning only takes one hour. And productivity of the die-cutter increases over many months. So no wonder the mplaten|cleaner pays for itself in no time at all. Our customers are convinced of mplaten|cleaner and its excellent price-performance ratio."
With the Marbach device, dirt and rust are removed from the die-cutting platen, and existing unevenness is smoothed out. This significantly reduces the effort required for make-ready and also the cutting pressure. The life span of the tool is extended and the die-cutting result is positively influenced by the clean platen. Customers benefit from excellent performance and increased productivity in their die-cutting processes.
Marbach has a new technology in its portfolio. The universal sheet delivery is a tool with which sheet delivery in the die-cutting machine can be extended so that the delivery of the paperboard sheets can be quickly and easily adapted to each individual job.
Marbach Werkzeugbau is currently working intensively on the topics of digitization and industry 4.0. The main focus here is on digital solutions for tools, processes and services. Within the scope of this project, Marbach has analyzed the future requirements of its customers. The results of this are the two components CONNECT|M and CONNECT|AR (Augmented Reality). CONNECT|M is a technology that intelligently connects the thermoforming tool, Marbach and the customer. CONNECT|AR is about virtual customer support via remote maintenance.
Marbach offers an extensive portfolio of dieboards. The suitable dieboard can be selected according to the requirements of the customer or the particular order. The dieboard forms the basis of a cutting-die. The contours of the packaging are first inserted into the dieboard, then the cutting and creasing rules are positioned and finally the appropriate rubber coating is applied.
Through its Die Supplies & Automation (MDS&A) division Marbach sells machines to die-makers. In addition to laser systems and water jet systems, Marbach has milling machines in its portfolio. The mgrav|2 is its most successful milling machine.
