Marbach Die Supplies has the right solution for every requirement in its portfolio. In the counter plate sector, Marbach offers a comprehensive portfolio of materials for diemakers. From simple creasing matrixes to cutting plates for the production of steel counter plates. However, the top seller in counter materials has remained the same for years: rillma+. But what makes this material so popular?
André Angermeir, General Sales Manager Marbach Die Supplies & Automation: "If you want to find out what exactly makes rillma+ such a popular counter material, you first have to take a closer look at its properties. rillma+ consists of a core enclosed by a top and bottom layer, each consisting of two layers of pertinax. This multilayer structure gives rillma+ its special technical properties. These not only make the material very durable, but also ensure optimum millability in processing and so ensuring perfectly milled creasing channels. At the same time, the material is neither too brittle nor too soft, which simplifies handling in assembly as well as in removal."
rillma+ is therefore of interest both to diemakers, who benefit from the high process reliability and ease of processing, and to packaging manufacturers, who can use it to produce their visually appealing packaging with optimum creasing.
Angermeir continues: "All this is the reason why rillma+ is the most popular material for the production of counter plates in our portfolio. Thanks to its long service life, it can withstand higher demands than, for example, creasing matrixes, and it is also very easy to mill. In short, rillma+ ensures satisfied customers and perfect packaging."
The pertinax material rillma+ is available as sheet goods, each in full and half formats in various thicknesses: between 0.3 mm and 1.9 mm from Marbach Die Supplies. Of course, always with the right accessories – from creasing rules to laminating film, and all from a single source.
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.
Marbach has published a new whitepaper for tobacco applications on its knowledge platform, the Experience Hub.
Marbach provides solutions to ensure top performance for its customers. In order to make packaging more attractive and to visually highlight individual elements of packing, the embellishment process of embossing is often used. As an eye-catcher, it increases the impact of a package at the point of sale. This then has a sales-promoting effect for the packaged product. If the embossing process is not integrated into the die-cutting process but is carried out separately, this is known as embossing and die-cutting in two passes. This is more time-consuming than an embossing process integrated into the die-cutting process. But here, too, set-up times can be minimized.
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies (MDS) includes machines, equipment and materials for diemaking. In particular, MDS has expanded its range of manual devices in recent months. Among the most popular of these is the mcut|multi multifunctional cutting tool. It cuts rule materials quickly and without deformation. Plastika Mostar in Slovenia is already using mcut|multi and is very impressed.
