We offer various technologies for blanking in packaging production. These can be individually adapted to requirements and the specifics of the job, so that the optimum use of the blanking station is guaranteed.
Bernhard Reisser, Industry Manager Folding Carton at Marbach: "The trend towards machine blanking is unbroken: This is because, compared to manual separation after the die-cutting and stripping process, machine separation ensures more productivity in the entire postpress area. Since the requirements of orders or packaging manufacturers are very diverse, we have various solutions for blanking."
The Marbach alublanker is a high-precision blanking tool lower part. The separating grid is made of aluminum and is completely CNC machined. It is characterized by its high precision and low weight. This is because the alublanker is more than 50% lighter than a conventional compact blanker. This makes it possible for a single machine operator to install the tool in the die-cutting machine.
Bernhard Reisser: "Not needing a second person saves our customers time and money. But of course, productivity is also essential for our customers. Thanks to its outstanding precision, the alublanker also offers some advantages in this respect: It means perfect stacking, reduced set-up times, high packaging quality without imprints, and high machine speeds."
The Marbach lightblanker is a modular blanking tool where the base frame can remain in the machine. It is not only light, but also inexpensive. This is why it pays for itself very quickly in short runs and simple layouts. Its great advantage is that the base frame can remain in the machine. It is adapted to the job-specific separating grid for each application. And it does so in a flash: a few simple steps and the lightblanker is ready for use. The lightweight is characterized by its quick-release fastener and one-man handling, as well as its high flexibility and quick conversion to sheet delivery.
For repeat orders, Marbach recommends the marbablanker to its customers. The marbablanker is individually tailored to the customer's needs. It is light and at the same time very stable. Since the tool frame is designed individually for each order and is firmly connected to the actual separating grid, the marbablanker ensures short set-up times.
The compact blanking tool is the forerunner of the other Marbach blanking tools. The lightblanker and the marbablanker were developed on its basis. It is made of steel, is solid and massive. It is manufactured individually for each customer order and stands for fast production processes.
With blanking technologies from Marbach, a suitable solution for every requirement is available. For highest flexibility for the user.
Exciting information about blanking is available in the Marbach whitepaper "Optimal use of your die-cutting machine´s blanking station. This is how."

We are not only a specialist in tools and services for packaging production, but also provide systems for the storage of cutting-die packages. One satisfied customer who has installed a Marbach storage system in their company is Weiss Packaging in Simmerath, Germany.
In the corrugated board sector, one of our latest technologies is the DZL|plateXL, a zone levelling solution for large format die-cutting machines. This ensures significantly reduced make-ready times.
We have recently released our new app. At the touch of a button, you can quickly and easily find out which creasing channel is best suited to your particular order when die-cutting your packaging.
The crease-plate-die|+ and crease-plate-die|rc technologies not only ensure the best creasing results in the tobacco sector, but also productivity during die-cutting and the following packaging process.
Whether the crease-plate-die|+ or the crease-plate-die|rc is used always depends on the design of the blank to be die-cut. The crease-plate-die|+ is always used when packaging with a hinge lid or bevel edge design is to be produced. The crease-plate-die|rc, on the other hand, is a solution specifically for cigarette packaging with a round corner design.
