Marbach has revised its hand-held tool for the insertion of nicks in cutting rules. The new marbanick|2+ is impressive with its integrated quick-change function, through which wedges of different widths can be quickly changed. In addition, its special design makes it possible to use different impact levels in one device.
Nicks ensure smooth transport of the sheets through the die-cutting machine. For optimal functioning of a stripping system, waste nicks are required. For small waste parts, it is important that the nicks are precise and reproducible. The machine operator must be able to carry out any subsequent optimization of these nicks quickly and easily.
Marbach developer Sascha Wormser: "This is where the marbanick|2+ comes into play. It is a small, very handy tool comprising one-hand operations. This allows the smallest, precisely defined nicks to be inserted into cutting rules. The marbanick|2+ has an integrated quick-change function with which the hard-metal wedges can be changed without tools."
The marbanick|2+ is very flexible and saves both time and money due to 3 different impact levels in one device and different quick-change wedges. A further advantage is that the rubber coating remains undamaged when the nicks are inserted. This ensures the best functionality of the tool in the die-cutting process.
Marbach provides solutions to ensure top performance for its customers. In order to make packaging more attractive and to visually highlight individual elements of packing, the embellishment process of embossing is often used. As an eye-catcher, it increases the impact of a package at the point of sale. This then has a sales-promoting effect for the packaged product. If the embossing process is not integrated into the die-cutting process but is carried out separately, this is known as embossing and die-cutting in two passes. This is more time-consuming than an embossing process integrated into the die-cutting process. But here, too, set-up times can be minimized.
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies (MDS) includes machines, equipment and materials for diemaking. In particular, MDS has expanded its range of manual devices in recent months. Among the most popular of these is the mcut|multi multifunctional cutting tool. It cuts rule materials quickly and without deformation. Plastika Mostar in Slovenia is already using mcut|multi and is very impressed.
Marbach supports its customers in producing packaging that stands out at the point of sale. One popular method for visually enhancing and refining packaging is embossing. This can be used to highlight individual elements in particular.
More information about embossing and the free white paper can be found on the Marbach Experience Hub.
