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 was recently visited by its customer Å&R Carton Lund AB for an audit. Å&R Carton looked closely at Marbach from a number of viewpoints and certified Marbach with a very good performance.
With its marbanick|2 for paperboard tools, Marbach has brought a hand tool onto the market that convinces users with its flexibility and simplicity. Since its introduction in May 2018, Marbach has sold almost 200 of these hand-held devices.
Marbach expands its Die Supplies & Automation division. From 01 February 2019, André Angermeir joins the Marbach team as the new Sales Manager. With Angermeir, Marbach has been able to gain an industry insider with a wealth of experience in the world of cutting-dies.
Marbach expands further. After having opened die production facilities in the USA, Malaysia and China in the past years, Marbach will open a Marbach Die Supplies subsidiary in Mexico in January. From here Marbach will supply materials to Mexican and North American die and packaging manufacturers. In addition, training in the application of technologies will be offered. Marbach's goal is to support the Mexican market in its further development.
