In rotary die-cutting, we offer further tool options in addition to our quality standard tools. In packaging production, a difference is made between the manufacturing process of flat die-cutting and rotary die-cutting. Die-cutting of corrugated board is often performed rotatively.
Ralf Nuyken, industry manager for corrugated board: "The objectives in rotary die-cutting of corrugated board is waste-free blanks achieved at maximum machine speed. Reaching these two goals is not always easy, because in rotary die-cutting, the cutting-die not only has to perform the function of cutting and creasing, but also the function of waste stripping. This is a difficult challenge for the cutting-die to master. The machine plays a central role in achieving this goal. But what is the point in having the best machine without a perfectly functioning cutting-die? That's why – in addition to our standard rotary dies – we have other die technologies that enable our customers to master any challenge they may face."
marbaspeed|r is a special high-performance tool equipped with the most advanced materials and manufactured using the very best manufacturing technologies: best rules, best dieboard materials, high-performance rubber as well as many other features. The tool equipment is tailored to your individual requirements. This means that not only cutting and creasing, but also stripping during rotary die-cutting of corrugated board is optimally achieved. marbaspeed|r is available for all corrugated board types and is suitable for both inline and offline machines. With a marbaspeed|r tool, the choice of rubber plays a significant role. Here, we use special high-performance rubber. Depending on your requirements, for example, the flexpower rubber, which is exclusively available from Marbach, is used. Its special structure makes this rubber extremely resistant to compression and gives it very high rebound elasticity. All of which ensures outstanding die-cutting quality of blanks. In addition, flexpower's high rebound elasticity means that waste is ejected quickly and efficiently during rotary die-cutting. The Marbach rubber is also tear-resistant and has low abrasiveness. This makes it highly resistant and durable. Even when other rubbers wear out and need replacing, flexpower still continues to work. Due to its composition, it can also be used without any hesitation for die-cutting of food packaging.
In rotary die-cutting, the trend is toward the use of rotary machines with active stripping technology. Such machines employ a different technique than conventional rotary machines. They have an integrated self-stripping system where the waste is stripped by means of mechanical ejectors. We have developed special tools for this purpose, which ensure high productivity with machines like these. Ralf Nuyken continues: "Our special tools are specifically designed for machines with active stripping technology. This is because the tool requirements are extremely high: For maximum performance, the special rotary tools must not only be extremely precise, but also have special equipment. The result is waste-free blanks in additon to very high running speeds of the rotary machine and in this way maximum productivity in rotary die-cutting is achieved." Special Marbach tools are suitable for all rotary machines with active stripping technology.
With Marbach rotary tools there is the right solution for every requirement.
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.
We once again this year follow a long established company tradition: We donate to different aid projects at Christmas under the motto "Donations instead of gifts".

We have some very special technologies for the tobacco sector in our portfolio: The crease-plate-die|+ and crease-plate-die|rc not only ensure productivity during die-cutting, but also during the subsequent packaging process.
Our division Marbach Die Supplies has a comprehensive portfolio of materials for diemakers. This is also true for counter plates: Here, we supply individual solutions from simple creasing matrixes to cutting plates for the production of steel counter plates. However, the top seller for counter plates among us has been the same for some years: rillma+.
