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 now provides on its new Experience Hub exclusive content and information for interested parties from the packaging industry. In addition to videos, animations and digital brochures, visitors of this page can also download white papers on important industry-specific topics and make direct appointments with a Marbach contact person. Marbach specialists will answer questions via email, chat or phone.
Once again this year Marbach will follow in a long-established tradition: Marbach will make Christmas donations to two aid projects under the motto “donations instead of presents”. When selecting the recipients of the donations, it has been important to the Marbach Management to split the money between internationally well-known and regionally respected institutions. This year, Marbach has donated 7,000 Euro to "Help - Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe e.V." and an additional donation of 3,000 Euro to the "Tafeln Heilbronn" (a food distribution charity). Due to the current pandemic situation, however, the handover of the donations was different than usual this year. One of the donations was handed over online, the other with face masks and at a distance.
In November Marbach participated in the new virtual trade show ConneXion. During the 4 weeks of the ConneXion exhibition large numbers of visitors informed themselves about news in the packaging industry. Marbach presented its latest new developments for more performance in packaging production.
Marbach is represented at its Heilbronn headquarters by two divisions: Die Cutting Technology and Thermoforming Tool Manufacturing. But a product which directly connects these two divisions is SR technology (steel rule technology). This is because the Die Cutting Technology division supplies the Thermoforming Tool manufacturing division, and many other thermoforming manufacturers worldwide, with special steel-rule dies.
