Nick-breaking. A new technology. That allows blanking without problems. For small cards with a double knife.
Jan Brunner, Head of Business Development at Marbach: “Small blanks with double knife in both directions often cause problems. The cards twist during the blanking process. Or tilt. Simply because they are too short or too narrow. That’s why they can’t drop without twisting. This happens on a regular basis. In die-cutting credit cards. Packaging for tooth brushes. Or eyeliner. With our nick-breaking technology, we have a simple and uncomplicated solution for this problem. So we provide our customers with the best performance in the blanking process.”
In our nick-breaking tools, the punches in the male blanker are replaced by special pins. These are positioned in a way that the nicks can be separated specifically and in a controlled manner. So the ups fall down vertically. Without twisting. Or tilting. This allows significantly faster machine speeds in special application scenarios with small cards. Without time-consuming machine stops. The blanks can be separated securely. And stacked neatly.
Marbach is already involved in its planning for the most important international trade fair for the printing industry: drupa 2020. And now there is only 1 year left until drupa opens its doors again. The last drupa was very special for Marbach: with the number of visitors reaching record levels. No previous drupa had more visitors at the Marbach stand than in 2016.
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.
