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."

The Marbach Group celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2023. Despite the now sizeable company of more than 1,600 employees worldwide, Marbach has never forgotten its roots. Because Marbach is aware that the roots of the company's success story are found in the people, the employees, who have supported the company through the last 100 years.
We have published a new whitepaper on our knowledge platform, the Experience Hub, on the topic of optimizing make-ready times.
In 2023, Marbach, whose exciting success story is unique, will be 100 years. But how did we become the corporate group we are today? One of the most important decisions here was certainly the investment in the very first CO2 laser system for cutting-die production in Europe. In the years that followed, laser technology became a cornerstone of the success of the Marbach Group – and pioneering for the entire die-cutting technology worldwide.
