In its Marbach Die Supplies & Automation division Marbach supplies machines, equipment and materials for die-making and printshops. With the robogrip, Marbach has a rule puller in its portfolio which proves itself to be an effective helper at the die-cutting machine.
Robogrip is used whenever damaged knives need to be safely removed from a cutting-die in order to be replaced with new ones. Ingo Graham, Product Manager at Marbach Die Supplies & Automation: "Without the robogrip, many operators remove knives with a pair of pliers. But not only does this increase the risk of injury, it can also damage the cutting-die and affect the fit of the replacement rules. But not with the robogrip."
The slim clamping jaws of the rule puller grip the rules to be removed with a minimum parallel spacing of 4 mm. Due to the pincer effect of the hand-held tool, it grips the rule without slipping. The vertical extracting forces of the robogrip also prevent the rule from skewing. This allows the rule to be removed quickly and safely. The professional reknifing is gentle on the die. This means that the tool can be used again quickly for production. Not only does this avoid the necessity for repairs, it also saves Marbach customers valuable time and money.
Graham continues: "The robogrip is very solid, ergonomic and of high quality. A super aid for the operator at the die-cutting machine. Since it is applicable for rules of up to 50 mm in height, it is also suitable for customers who work with high rules. An absolute all-rounder."
The robogrip is currently available at a special price. Inquiries are accepted directly under firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
