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".
Special situations require special actions. In view of current events, we are intensively engaged in the question of how we can support facilities such as hospitals, nursing homes, etc., but also how we can protect our employees. In addition to door handle hooks for employees, which we manufacture ourselves at our Heilbronn site and which are already actively in use, we are currently producing special face shields which are used in hospitals.
Marbach employs 1,500 people worldwide. As an employer Marbach attaches great importance to the health of its employees. Therefore, the company decided to offer its employees attractive bicycle leasing in 2017 at its headquarter in Heilbronn. Recently the 150th bicycle has been leased from Marbach.
Marbach is known in the market for providing individual solutions. So far, manual top knives have not been part of Marbach's portfolio. However, as customer requirements for high-precision manual top knives have become more and more demanding, Marbach has intensively dealt with this topic. The result is tools manufactured in a new production process which optimally meets customer requirements for more precision.
Marbach uses numerous dieboards for its cutting-dies. Depending on the requirements of the order, suitable dieboard material is selected in coordination with the customer. For high demands on the dimensional stability and service life of a tool, the Marbach portfolio includes various dimensionally stable dieboards.
