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
Our division Marbach Die Supplies has a comprehensive portfolio of materials for diemakers. This is also true for counter plates: Here, we supply individual solutions from simple creasing matrixes to cutting plates for the production of steel counter plates. However, the top seller for counter plates among us has been the same for some years: rillma+.
We have various technologies for blanking in our portfolio that can be individually selected depending on customer requirements and technical demands. These ensure the optimal use of the blanking station in packaging production.
Our division Marbach Die Supplies provides packaging manufacturers with materials for their daily needs, as well as equipment for their die-cutting environment. For high productivity in packaging production, not only the die-cutting machine and the die-cutting technologies that are used play a decisive role, but also a well-functioning die preparation. This is where handheld devices from Marbach come in.
