Marbach is well-known for its solutions that fulfil all requirements. In the field of rotary corrugated board, more and more is being invested in die-cutting machines which use tools with active stripping technology. For this reason, Marbach has developed special optimized tools designed for use on these rotary machines.
These special die-cutting machines employ a different technology than conventional rotary machines. They have an integrated self-stripping system in which waste is stripped using ejector pins. This means that conventional tools do not meet the requirements and special rotary cutting-dies have to be used. These tools are complex to manufacture and must be of the highest precision.
Silvio Gruber: "We have meanwhile supplied many customers with our new special tools. The trend is increasing strongly. The customers who use our tools are very satisfied. They report that their blanks are waste-free and that their rotary machines run at very high speeds. For maximum performance in rotary die-cutting."
Another advantage of the new technology: die-cutting, folding and gluing are carried out in a single operation. Therefore the productivity of these rotary machines, in combination with the Marbach tool technology, is very high.
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.
