Marbach has exciting news on the subject of steel counter plates. As of now, under the name marbazero, a new additional piece of equipment for steel counter plates will be available. This will provide even better performance during die-cutting.
Sales Manager Jan Brunner: "Using a steel counter plate as a counter plate has many advantages for our customers. They benefit from fast machine speeds, stable nicks, consistent creasing values and beautiful packaging. However, with conventional steel counter plates, it often happens that the steel counter plate does not fit the tool exactly. This results in longer make-ready times than are necessary. In addition, a conventional steel counter plate can only ever be used on a specific machine, since each machine model requires a different steel counter plate contour. Flexibility is therefore non-existent. For this reason we set to mastering these challenges. The result is a steel counter plate with marbazero. A bad register from tool to steel counter plate plus lack of flexibility are now things of the past. The steel counter plate as a counter plate has therefore become a must-have for every job."
marbazero is a system consisting of a marbazero distance plate and a matching steel counter plate. These are equipped with special holes so that the steel counter plate can be positioned quickly and precisely. And it takes no time at all: the steel counter plate is placed on the distance plate, screwed into place, so that the steel counter plate fits the cutting-die. Die-cutting can now begin.
In addition to reducing make-ready time and ensuring high packaging quality, marbazero increases flexibility in packaging production. This is because marbazero has a smaller all-around contour than the distance plate. This means that the steel counter plate with marbazero can be used universally on different machines. The only precondition is that the machine is equipped with a marbazero distance plate.
Brunner continues: "With marbazero, our customers will significantly reduce their setup times for steel counter plates, in fact almost down to zero. This is why we call this technology marbazero."
marbazero is available immediately for folding box die-cutting machines up to format 162.
For those wishing to know more about marbazero: We will host web sessions on the topic of performance as part of the Performance Week running from February 21 to 25. One of the topics presented will be marbazero.
We will once again be an exhibitor at drupa 2024! This is the most important international trade fair for the printing industry and will take place in Düsseldorf from the 28th of May to the 7th of June 2024. We will present our products and services in the fields of performance, digitalization and sustainability.
We offer various blank separation solutions for separating blanks in packaging production. One of these technologies, which is extremely popular on the market, is the marbablanker. This is because this blanking tool is characterized above all by short set-up times and good handling during packaging production.
In addition to our portfolio of cutting-dies, we also offer suitable storage systems. The Marbach Die Storage System (MDSS) has been designed for optimally functioning in-house logistics at packaging manufacturers.
The Marbach MDSS storage system consists of special rack frames into which individual die cassettes are inserted. It has a modular design and can be configured according to customer requirements.
We are known for our requirement-tailored solutions. For applications in the medical sector, we have special tools in our portfolio that have been designed especially for this purpose.
Our special tools are characterized by their durability, fast delivery times and hygiene. Also, in terms of price, our solutions are unbeatable in a direct comparison.
