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.
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.
