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 a new technology in its portfolio. The universal sheet delivery is a tool with which sheet delivery in the die-cutting machine can be extended so that the delivery of the paperboard sheets can be quickly and easily adapted to each individual job.
Marbach Werkzeugbau is currently working intensively on the topics of digitization and industry 4.0. The main focus here is on digital solutions for tools, processes and services. Within the scope of this project, Marbach has analyzed the future requirements of its customers. The results of this are the two components CONNECT|M and CONNECT|AR (Augmented Reality). CONNECT|M is a technology that intelligently connects the thermoforming tool, Marbach and the customer. CONNECT|AR is about virtual customer support via remote maintenance.
Marbach offers an extensive portfolio of dieboards. The suitable dieboard can be selected according to the requirements of the customer or the particular order. The dieboard forms the basis of a cutting-die. The contours of the packaging are first inserted into the dieboard, then the cutting and creasing rules are positioned and finally the appropriate rubber coating is applied.
Through its Die Supplies & Automation (MDS&A) division Marbach sells machines to die-makers. In addition to laser systems and water jet systems, Marbach has milling machines in its portfolio. The mgrav|2 is its most successful milling machine.
