Marbach developed some time ago a special technology for reverse cutting to save make-ready time. This technology, known as the height-adjustable anvil, is very popular in the market. Until now, the use of this technology has been limited to high-tech duramar tools or corrugated board tools. But the height-adjustable anvil is now also available in a new version for standard folding box tools.
This version was designed for folding box tools with wooden die boards (multiplex or greenplate). Due to the separation of the aluminum block into two parts, the wood of the die board is not compressed during the die-cutting process, but the cutting pressure is dispersed via the aluminum.
Research and Development Manager Klaus Rommel: "By separating the aluminium block into two parts, the height-adjustable anvil can now also be used for tools with a wooden dieboard. Between the two aluminium blocks there are underlay foils. With these, each individual reverse cut can be quickly and easily set-up in height and optimally adjusted. For our customers, this means simple handling, reduced make-ready times as well as well-functioning opening mechanisms for sales-boosting packaging."
The new Marbach product is now available under the name "split height-adjustable anvil".
Marbach has sold its 500th digital zone levelling. This special protection plate called DZL|plate compensates for unevenness in the platen. It only has to be inserted into the die-cutting machine once and will last for many months. This contrasts to the conventional type of zone levelling, which must be carried out for each individual job.
Marbach has recently added a new technology to its portfolio under the name Universal Sheet Delivery. The Universal Sheet Delivery is a tool that can be used to supplement the sheet delivery in the die-cutting machine so it can be quickly and easily adapted to each individual job. The first customers are already using the new Marbach tool.
Marbach has been for many years a specialist for equipping packages with elegant opening mechanisms. This requires highest precision. In order to adjust tools quickly and precisely with reverse cutting, Marbach offers a special technology: the height-adjustable anvil. Now optimized it ensures even more accuracy when setting up tools with reverse cutting.
Each year Marbach offers apprenticeships to more than 15 young people. Altogether there are more than 50 apprentices at various stages of training. There are many different professions beginning with "standard professions" such as industrial clerk (m/f/d) or toolmaker (m/f/d). But there are also less known professions. One of these is the packaging technician (m/f/d).
