We are not only a specialist for tools and services around packaging production, but also supply equipment centered on die-cutting. This also includes cleaning devices for the cutting platen.
The reason why Leopold Verpackungen in Ludwigsburg (Germany) decided in favor of the mplaten|cleaner platen cleaning device from Marbach is explained by the plant manager, Valeri Lach: "We had been gathering information on the subject of platen cleaning devices for some time and had also already been using one or the other system. Then at Fachpack 2018, Marbach showed us the mplaten|cleaner."
The mplaten|cleaner is a cleaning device for die-cutting machines. It allows the platen of a die-cutting machine to be cleaned efficiently by the machine operator, thus increasing the productivity of the machine.
Lach continues: "We ordered an mplaten|cleaner from Marbach during the Fachpack trade show. The effect of the Marbach cleaning device was much the same as with the other devices we had already tested. The main differences were that the mplaten|cleaner was much cheaper than alternative cleaning systems, and machine downtime was only approx. 30 min. when cleaning regularly with the mplaten|cleaner instead of one and a half days with alternative devices. This convinced us instantly. In the meantime, we have been using the mplaten|cleaner on all our die-cutting machines for 4 years. The result: by regularly cleaning the cutting platens on our machines, we have to do less make-ready in the long run. In other words, we not only have lower set-up times, but steel counter plates can also be inserted into the machine more easily. Cleaning with the mplaten|cleaner means small effort with big effects for us. I can definitely recommend this Marbach cleaning device. We clean each machine once a month and profit from the advantages for 4 weeks. Even after a short time you can quickly see the savings you have with the mplaten|cleaner. I am fully convinced, it is a great product."

The Marbach Group celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2023. Despite the now sizeable company of more than 1,600 employees worldwide, Marbach has never forgotten its roots. Because Marbach is aware that the roots of the company's success story are found in the people, the employees, who have supported the company through the last 100 years.
We have published a new whitepaper on our knowledge platform, the Experience Hub, on the topic of optimizing make-ready times.
In 2023, Marbach, whose exciting success story is unique, will be 100 years. But how did we become the corporate group we are today? One of the most important decisions here was certainly the investment in the very first CO2 laser system for cutting-die production in Europe. In the years that followed, laser technology became a cornerstone of the success of the Marbach Group – and pioneering for the entire die-cutting technology worldwide.
