Marbach has recently introduced its new split height-adjustable anvil for reducing make-ready times during reverse cutting. Since its introduction Marbach has sold this innovative technology many times over. Customers using tools with a split height-adjustable anvil are very impressed.
During reverse cutting the paperboard material is not cut through but the carton is scored from both sides in an offset position. This creates a special tearing mechanism that is very popular for packaging. Reverse cutting requires a very high degree of precision because the paperboard material to be cut is very thin and the tear mechanism only works well if the scoring is not too weak and not too strong. A great challenge for the cutting-die and the machine operator.
Bernhard Reisser, Sales Manager at Marbach: "For reverse cutting, success lies in adjusting the cutting-die and counter plate in such a way that the scoring of the carton works optimally. To ensure the make-ready process is as efficient as possible, we have developed the split height-adjustable anvil. It is height adjustable and thus provides an optimal, fast, and efficient way of setting up the reverse cutting from the front of the cutting-die. The height of the reverse cutting can be individually adjusted, quickly and easily and so can be set in the best possible way.
For Marbach customers this means easy handling, highest accuracy and a stable scoring result over the whole production run.
Reisser continues: "Customers who use our new technology report significantly reduced make-ready times and perfectly working tearing mechanisms as well." With this innovation Marbach contributes to a further reduction of set-up times for its customers.
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.
