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 opened its Marbach Academy in 2017. In its first year, more than 220 participants visited the training center in Heilbronn. And since then the number has been constantly growing. Marbach is training the industry in the die-cutting process.
An eventful year has come to an end for the cutting-die and thermoforming tool manufacturer Marbach. Marbach has a nice tradition of making donations at Christmas instead of giving presents to customers. When selecting recipients, it is important for the Marbach management to divide the money between internationally known and regionally respected institutions. Because the Heilbronn-based company is active all over the world .This year, Marbach has donated 7,000 euros to help in Burkina Faso and 3,000 euros to the protection against freezing to death by the Aufbaugilde Heilbronn.
The focus of Marbach is optimizing the performance of its customers. For this reason Marbach offers extensive services. In addition to training on the subject of die-cutting packaging, Marbach now also offers packaging services in its portfolio.
