Marbach presented some time ago its technology for optically appealing visible edges in corrugated board packaging. Since then various customers are employing pure edge. One of these customers is the Sealed Air Verpackungen GmbH in Alsfeld, Germany. Sealed Air has been so convinced by this technology that in the meantime all its tools for single-wall corrugated board have been equipped with pure edge.
Bernd Becker, production manager at Sealed Air: “During the production of single-wall corrugated board packaging, we sometimes had problems with the formation of angel-hair. The visible edges of the packaging was ragged and didn’t comply with the high quality requirements of our customers. As a result Marbach suggested pure edge technology. Tests with pure edge have been very positive. The packaging that was produced with it had absolutely clean visible edges, with the naked eye no angel-hair was visible. And that’s why we completely switched to pure edge. To date, we are more than happy with this decision.”
Pure edge technology is replacing functional rubbering along the cutting rules with steel pressers. This means that corrugated board is completely compressed directly next to the knives during the die-cutting process. Very clean cuts emerge, and so the formation of cutting dust or angel-hair can be prevented with this technology.
With its calibration tool package, Marbach ensures that its customers can quickly and easily re-adjust the components of their die-cutting machine for flat die-cutting of corrugated board. This results in a significant reduction of set-up and make-ready times.
Marbach started its training program one and a half years ago. Under the name "Marbach Academy. More knowledge. More skills." Today Marbach offers practice-oriented training courses in all aspects of die-cutting packaging. The new training program for 2020 is now available
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies includes materials for the rubbering of cutting-dies. When it comes to rubber materials, the most important thing is that they are resistant and durable. When used in the right place in the cutting-die, they ensure that the paperboard material is ejected optimally during the cutting process. In addition, they ensure the stability of the nicks and thus provide smooth production processes in the die-cutting machine.
Marbach Asia Pacific in Kuala Lumpur organized once again Open House Days on 3rd and 4th October 2019. More than 100 visitors attended: brand owners, politicians and, of course, customers and interested parties from the packaging industry. All were able to convince themselves of the high-performance standards at the South-east Asian plant of the Marbach Group.
