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 Die Supplies includes in its portfolio a very special hand tool for simple and fast insertion of waste nicks into cutting rules: the marbanick|2+. This is the follow-on development of the long-standing and time-proven marbanick and marbanick|2.
Marbach has been participating in the world's largest exhibition for the packaging industry, drupa, since 1977. At the upcoming drupa in 2 weeks, from April 20-23, Marbach will again be represented with a booth - but this time virtually. Because of the Corona pandemic, this year's exhibition will take place exclusively online. On the 4 days of the fair, however, everything will center on packaging online.
Marbach Die Supplies has the right solution for every requirement in its portfolio. In the counter plate sector, Marbach offers a comprehensive portfolio of materials for diemakers. From simple creasing matrixes to cutting plates for the production of steel counter plates. However, the top seller in counter materials has remained the same for years: rillma+. But what makes this material so popular?
Marbach is repositioning itself for the future. The company with its more than 20 locations worldwide, has evaluated its position during a one-year-long strategy project. The results are impressive: a new sales structure, the introduction of "Production Centers of Excellence" and new industry management reorganization for the most important target markets: folding carton and corrugated board.
