With our two technologies crease-plate-die|+ and crease-plate-die|rc, we offer two solutions for the tobacco sector in our portfolio. These are increasingly establishing themselves on the market due to their many advantages.
crease-plate-die|+ is used whenever packaging is to be produced in a "hinge lid" or "bevel edge" design. This technology creases with a defined end gauge. This means that the make ready can be carried out with extreme precision and uniform creasing. This increases both the quality of the packaging blanks and the speeds during packing.
crease-plate-die|rc is a solution especially suited for cigarette packaging in round corner design. The unique effect of round corner packaging is created by several creases being placed very close together when the packaging is cut. This looks outstanding on the finished packaging, yet it also places high technical demands on the tool.
Bernhard Reisser, industry manager at Marbach: "With round corner creases, completely different forces act on the paperboard than with standard creases. In order to master these, it is necessary to be able to individually set-up the creases. This means separating the make-ready of the cross creases of a creasing plate tool from the round corner creases. Such a separated make-ready is possible with the crease-plate-die|rc. The results are high-quality blanks that achieve the creasing specifications given by the end customer. Incidentally, this also applies to changing cardboard materials and variations in cardboard quality."
Our crease-plate-die solutions stand for high-quality blanks that optimally meet tobacco manufacturers' high demands on packaging quality and packing speed.

In 2023, we will be able to look back on 100 years of company history. After this special event, the next big event for us is already waiting to happen next year: In one year – exactly on May 28, 2024 – the leading trade show of the printing and packaging industry, drupa in Düsseldorf, will finally take place again.
We are at home in the packaging industry. Almost 100 years ago, we began in Heilbronn as a 3-man business with a small workshop measuring 36 m² (4 x 9 m). Today the company has 1,600 employees worldwide at many locations around the globe. In Heilbronn alone, the total area for production and administration is 24,352 m².
As a result of this expansion, space in the existing buildings has repeatedly become cramped over the years. As a consequence, new buildings and extensions have had to be built.
In addition to our comprehensive portfolio of cutting-dies, we also offer compatible storage systems. The Marbach Die Storage System (MDSS) has been designed for packaging manufacturers seeking optimally functioning in-house logistics.
