We are known for our innovative technologies that make life easier for the user. One of these is the split anvil, which ensures that packaging can be equipped with elegant and functional opening mechanisms.
In reverse-cutting, the paperboard material is not punched through, but is scored from both sides at an offset position. This creates a special tear-open mechanism that is becoming increasingly popular for both folding cartons and corrugated board packaging. The fact that the material only has to be scored means that maximum precision is required. In order to make the tool ready for reverse-cutting quickly and precisely, Marbach has a special technology: the height-adjustable anvil, which, thanks to its special design, ensures precision when setting up tools with reverse-cutting.
Marbach industry manager Bernhard Reisser: "Our split anvil in the cardboard packaging sector has a continuous design in the dieboard. Between the two layers, which are precision-milled from aluminum, there are make-ready foils with which each individual anvil can be quickly and easily adjusted in height and optimally set. For our customers, this means simple handling and thus reduced set-up times, maximum accuracy and a stable scoring result over the entire run. For optimal functioning tear mechanisms."

In 2023, we will be able to look back on 100 years of company history. After this special event, the next big event for us is already waiting to happen next year: In one year – exactly on May 28, 2024 – the leading trade show of the printing and packaging industry, drupa in Düsseldorf, will finally take place again.
We are at home in the packaging industry. Almost 100 years ago, we began in Heilbronn as a 3-man business with a small workshop measuring 36 m² (4 x 9 m). Today the company has 1,600 employees worldwide at many locations around the globe. In Heilbronn alone, the total area for production and administration is 24,352 m².
As a result of this expansion, space in the existing buildings has repeatedly become cramped over the years. As a consequence, new buildings and extensions have had to be built.
In addition to our comprehensive portfolio of cutting-dies, we also offer compatible storage systems. The Marbach Die Storage System (MDSS) has been designed for packaging manufacturers seeking optimally functioning in-house logistics.
