Marbach is now able to deliver its bestseller, the mplaten|cleaner, even more quickly. Thanks to optimizations in the supply chain, the new Marbach device, which had initial delivery problems as a result of high demand, can now be supplied within a very short period of time.
Erik Bülow, Sales Marbach Die Supplies & Automation: "We were literally overwhelmed by the success of the mplaten|cleaner. After initial delivery difficulties, we were able to adjust to the high demand and optimize our supply chain. Now we are more flexible and can deliver quickly whenever orders are placed."
The platen cleaner is currently available in two versions. One for paperboard and one for corrugated board die-cutting machines.
Bülow: "Since there are numerous die-cutting machines with different dimensions on the market, we initially designed the mplaten|cleaner for the most frequently used machines. After this outstanding success, we are now developing further versions so that the advantages of the mplaten|cleaner can be used on all common die-cutting machines."
With the mplaten|cleaner the platen of a die-cutting machine can be cleaned of dirt and rust, and existing unevenness can be smoothed out. This significantly minimizes the make-ready effort and reduces the die-cutting pressure. The service life span of the tool is extended and the die-cutting result is positively influenced by the clean platen. Customers benefit from excellent performance and increased productivity in their die-cutting processes.
The cleaning process using the mplaten|cleaner usually takes less than one hour. This cleaning ensures that the die-cutting machine’s productivity increases. In this way, the mplaten|cleaner pays for itself within a short period of time.
Marbach has added a new blanking tool to its product range. The alublanker is, as its name suggests, made of aluminum and completely CNC-milled. One of the first customers to use the alublanker is Marbach's long-standing partner MPS in Obersulm - a company of the Consumer Packaging Business of the WestRock Group. The Obersulm site produces high-quality folding cartons for the international perfume and cosmetics industry.
Marbach has published a new whitepaper for tobacco applications on its knowledge platform, the Experience Hub.
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.
