With its pure edge technology Marbach ensures packaging manufacturers and brand owners are fully satisfied. They have recognized the advantages of this Marbach technology and are increasingly opting for pure edge.
Corrugated board packaging with beautiful visible edges
Marketing Manager Tina Dost: "Brand owners want attractive corrugated board packaging with pure visible edges for sales-boosting presentations of their products at the point of sale. When conventional cutting-dies are used, there is often lint-forming and angel hair on the visible edges. This, of course, is an absolute no-go for products that depend on the attractiveness of the packaging." With pure edge, the requirements of brand owners are fully met, marks and linting are now a thing of the past.
Durable and efficient tools
But it is not only brand owners who are very satisfied with packaging produced using pure edge technology. Packaging manufacturers also benefit from the advantages of this Marbach technology. With pure edge, the conventional functional rubber along cutting rules has been replaced by steel pressers. As a result, the corrugated board is now completely compressed directly next to the knife during the die-cutting process. This ensures very low wear and tear during the die-cutting process. Long service life of the tool is thus ensured.
Dost continues: "The advantages for packaging manufacturers are obvious: consistent results over a very long period of time, no waste and no downtimes. Pure edge stands for efficiency and high packaging quality.
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.
