For almost 10 years, we have been offering a very special, dimensionally stable dieboard under the name "Marbach solidplate". Now this tool is available in a new aluminum version which, due to its low weight, demonstrates all its advantages especially for large folding box formats.
The solidplate|alu consists of 3 layers: Two aluminum top layers enclose a center layer of secondary material (solidplate core) from above and below. This special material combination ensures a high (dimensional) stability but with low weight.
The solidplate|alu is used primarily for food packaging, but numerous other applications are also possible, such as in the pharmaceutical or cosmetics industries.
Jan Brunner, Sales Manager at Marbach: "When die-cutting large formats, precision is what counts. The larger the tool, the more the smallest dimensional tolerances have an impact. Tool weight is also a significant factor for large formats."
For this reason, we have launched our solidplate|alu dieboard. Brunner continues, "By using aluminum instead of steel, this dieboard is not only very precise and so ensuring productivity and best die-cutting results in packaging production, but it is also lightweight and thus easy to handle. One further great effect: the lower weight saves transport costs."
The solidplate|alu is a dimensionally stable dieboard. It is characterized by its good hygroscopic properties (dimensional stability), an optimal register to the steel counter plate, and its durability as well as the possibility of a high number of reknifings. In addition, the ejector rubber on the solidplate|alu can be replaced with particular ease due to the existing metallic cover plate.

Machine blanking is becoming increasingly important because compared to the manual process, it increases productivity in the entire postpress post press area. We offer customized blanking tools to increase efficiency in packaging production. Depending on your specific requirements, we select the most suitable blanking tool.
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.
