One machine upgrade, popular with Marbach customers, is the digital zone levelling DZL|plate. This protection plate is individually provided with a printed height profile and so can be adapted to the respective conditions of the die-cutting machine. The DZL|plate thus takes over the zone levelling of the machine, which reduces the make-ready times of the rules for each individual job.
Bernhard Reisser, Industry Manager for the folding carton industry at Marbach: "For several years, the digital zone levelling DZL|plate has been successfully established on the market by us. And since this year, we also offer a second version, the DZL|plateXL. With its two-part protective plate, this has been developed explicitly for large-format corrugated die-cutting machines."
Digital zone levelling compensates for height differences in the die-cutting platen area – with a maximum height compensation potential of up to 0.15 mm. In this way, it not only ensures optimum pressure conditions during die-cutting, but also reduces knife set-up times.
Reisser continues: "Our customers are enthusiastic about this technology and confirm a cutting pressure reduction of 15-30% as well as a make-ready time saving of well over 30% per job. Many of our customers have now equipped their entire machine park with digital zone levelling and have, as a result, become significantly more efficient in finishing of their orders. Especially in these fast-moving times, this important increase in performance means a clear competitive advantage for our customers."
Digital zone levelling pays for itself quickly through its longevity and usually pays for itself within a few months. Anyone interested can find an amortization calculator on the Marbach website at: https://www.marbach.com/en/products/digital-zone-levelling
Marbach not only has cutting-dies in its portfolio, but also systems for storing flat and rotary dies.
Marbach Die Supplies has launched a new device for notching rule materials in diemaking. Called mcut|notch-duo, this space-saving manual device is available now.
Under this exciting title, Marbach has dealt with the future of the tobacco industry from the perspective of a tool manufacturer on its knowledge platform, the Experience Hub.
Marbach has added a new blanking tool to its product range. The alublanker is, as its name suggests, made of aluminum and completely CNC-milled. One of the first customers to use the alublanker is Marbach's long-standing partner MPS in Obersulm - a company of the Consumer Packaging Business of the WestRock Group. The Obersulm site produces high-quality folding cartons for the international perfume and cosmetics industry.
