Marbach is still on the path to success with its premium stripping tool, the masterstrip|plate. During the last months this special stripping technology has significantly increased its percentage share of sales in all stripping tools. But why has this Marbach technology become so popular?
Jan Brunner, Head of Business Development at Marbach: “In our opinion, stripping by setting lower pins generally takes a backseat. This is also because die-cutting machines can and should run at higher speeds. With this, stripping with lower pins reaches its limits. The trend is increasingly moving towards dynamic stripping. And with high demands on waste-freeness and machine speeds, the masterstrip|plate is the tool many of our customers choose.”
The male stripper of the masterstrip|plate is equipped with a presser plate and a special sheet lifter. The presser plate straightens the sheet and ensures that the waste is fixed equally during the stripping process. The sheet lifter marbafly supports the smooth transport of the paperboard sheet during the stripping process. So it not only becomes safe with regard to machine stops, but can achieve very high machine speeds and almost waste-free production.
Marbach launched its tool marbaclean onto the market last year. Product safety and conformity to highest hygiene demands are benefits, that are attracting great interest in the market. marbacelan is ISEGA certified and therefore suitable for packaging production in the food industry – particularly for direct packaging, which has direct contact with the packaged goods.
Marbach knows the requirements of the market. Especially for manufacturing cigarette packaging where the demands on quality are high, and the packaging process has to be especially productive. With the crease bend tester, Marbach offers its customers a device with which creasing forces and folding resistance of a package can be tested precisely. For the smooth packaging process of cigarettes.
Marbach presented some time ago its technology for optically appealing visible edges in corrugated board packaging. Since then various customers are employing pure edge. One of these customers is the Sealed Air Verpackungen GmbH in Alsfeld, Germany. Sealed Air has been so convinced by this technology that in the meantime all its tools for single-wall corrugated board have been equipped with pure edge.
After the installation of a die-cutting machine at Marbach at the beginning of July, the preparations for the new training center are running at full speed at the Heilbronn-based die-maker. The official start is planned for the beginning of 2018. Marbach will then offer its customers training on the topics of die-cutting of paperboard and corrugated board. The focus will be on topics such as productivity and the significant reduction of make-ready time.
