Marbach's portfolio includes cutting-dies for rotary machines. In the field of rotary die-cutting of corrugated board the trend is more and more towards rotary machines with active stripping technology. This requires the use of specialized tools. Some time ago, Marbach had already addressed this issue and developed optimized specialized tools with active stripping technology. During the last few months this Marbach technology has become more and more established.
Silvio Gruber, Sales Manager at Marbach: "Rotary die-cutting machines with active stripping technology follow a different approach than conventional rotary machines. They have an integrated self-stripping system where the waste is stripped using mechanical ejectors."
Marbach offers tools which are designed for such machines and directly adapted to their requirements. The tools must be highly precise and specially equipped. This makes them complex to manufacture.
Gruber continues: "The customers who use our high-precision specialized tools are very satisfied with the performance when die-cutting their corrugated board packaging. They report waste-free blanks as well as very high running speeds of their rotary machines."
The Marbach tools are suitable for all rotary machines with active stripping technology.
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.
