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 employs 1,500 people worldwide. As an employer Marbach attaches great importance to the health of its employees. Therefore, the company decided to offer its employees attractive bicycle leasing in 2017 at its headquarter in Heilbronn. Recently the 150th bicycle has been leased from Marbach.
Marbach is known in the market for providing individual solutions. So far, manual top knives have not been part of Marbach's portfolio. However, as customer requirements for high-precision manual top knives have become more and more demanding, Marbach has intensively dealt with this topic. The result is tools manufactured in a new production process which optimally meets customer requirements for more precision.
Marbach uses numerous dieboards for its cutting-dies. Depending on the requirements of the order, suitable dieboard material is selected in coordination with the customer. For high demands on the dimensional stability and service life of a tool, the Marbach portfolio includes various dimensionally stable dieboards.
With its innovation pure edge Marbach ensures satisfaction of packaging manufacturers and brand owners. This technology stands for beautiful visible edges for corrugated board packaging and so for sales-boosting presentation of branded products at the point of sale. In addition, pure edge impresses with its durability and permanently consistent die-cutting results.
