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 is already involved in its planning for the most important international trade fair for the printing industry: drupa 2020. And now there is only 1 year left until drupa opens its doors again. The last drupa was very special for Marbach: with the number of visitors reaching record levels. No previous drupa had more visitors at the Marbach stand than in 2016.
Marbach has continuously expanded its services in the past year. The newest member of the Marbach service family is the Marbach Performance Boost package. By which, Marbach supports its consulting service which makes its own process know-how available to its customers and thereby significantly increasing their productivity during the die-cutting process.
Marbach has been using for some time now a new rubber for rubbering cutting-dies. The name of this high-performance material is flexpower. Certified by ISEGA for use in the food industry, this rubber offers numerous advantages to operators. Marbach uses flexpower in corrugated board tools (both flat and rotary) and also sells it as raw material.
Marbach is one of the large material suppliers in Germany. Under the name Marbach Die Supplies, Marbach offers materials for packaging manufacturers that meet the requirements in the field of die-cutting. In order to support its customers even more in increasing their performance, Marbach has expanded its material portfolio.
