Marbach presented its newly patented technology pure edge at the FachPack Nuremberg in September 2016. Since then more and more customers have profited from the advantages of this Marbach technology.
Marbach developer Ingo Graham: “Since FachPack, we have equipped more than 300 tools with the pure edge technology. Several customers have even changed completely to pure edge. Especially in the area of sales packaging, pure edge is becoming increasingly popular.”
With this Marbach technology, the functional rubbering along the cutting rules is replaced with steel pressers. This leads to a full compression of the corrugated board directly next to the knife during the die-cutting process. The results are very clean cuts. The development of cutting dust as well as angel hair can thus be avoided.
Graham: “The pure edge technology not only provides clean visible edges and therefore top-selling corrugated board packaging but also is not subject to wear. Also it can be used in very narrow places, where there is no room for rubber. Moreover it ensures a high stability of nicks, so that the size of the nicks can be reduced without loss of function.”
With the Marbach pure edge technology, customers receive a solution for attractive corrugated board packaging at the point of sale.
Marbach has been a specialist for the production of cutting-dies for the packaging industry for many decades. In addition, the Marbach portfolio also includes tools for special technical solutions. One of which is the production of cutting-dies with particularly high cutting rules.
In May of this year, Marbach launched its new lower pin unit with high precision lower pins. This is mainly used for jobs where very small amounts of waste have to be stripped and where requirements for die-cut blanks to be waste-free are very high. With the lower pin unit, waste is stripped very safely in these areas of application. In the last months, several customers have already been using the new Marbach technology. Customer feedback has been consistently positive.
Marbach is working at full speed on various digitalization and Industry 4.0 projects.
