In December 2017 Marbach introduced to the market its new cleaning device for corrugated board die-cutting machines: the mplaten|cleaner. Since then, more than 30 of these devices have been sold. And further orders are in the pipeline.
The die-cutting machine is subject to natural wear and tear during the manufacturing process of packaging. But not only that. Unevenness in this area steadily grows due to increased dirt accumulation in the die-cutting platen. The result is an increase in the amount of work involved in the setting-up and make-ready of the machine. This gradually reduces the productivity of a die-cutter.
The new device from Marbach removes dirt and rust from the platen. The cleaning process smoothes out unevenness and thus minimizes the work involved in the make-ready process. The cutting pressure can be reduced. And this extends the lifespan of the tool. In addition, the cutting result is also positively affected by a clean die-cutting platen.
Marbach recommends a half-yearly cleaning of the machinery to maintain optimal conditions of the die-cutters.
Sandra Hemberger, Sales Marbach Automation & Service: "We are very happy about the success of the mplaten|cleaner. The feedback from our customers is consistently positive."
The customers who use the mplaten|cleaner are excited. Hemberger continues: "The customers buy the mplaten|cleaner for the maintenance of their machinery and achieve even more productivity in their die-cutting processes. The machine operators are convinced of the simplicity of the Marbach platen cleaning device.”
Even hard-to-reach areas can be cleaned. It is not necessary to remove the chain. Cleaning a platen takes less than an hour with a little practice.
Hemberger continues: "That is of less importance if the customers can then save make-ready time on every single job. In this way, the cleaning device pays off within a very short time. The price-performance ratio of the mplaten|cleaner is excellent. We are of course very happy to hear that our new device is so well received by customers. And hope to attract even more customers with it in the near future."
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.
