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+.
André Angermeir, Sales Manager at Marbach Die Supplies: "rillma+ is a counter plate made of hard paper. The structure of the different layers gives rillma+ its special technical properties: It makes the material very durable, ensures optimum millability in processing and resulting in perfectly milled creasing channels. rillma+ is neither too rigid nor too soft, which simplifies handling when applying as well as removing the material. And, of course, our unique adhesive material ensures ideal bonding to the cutting plate. All these properties make rillma+ ideal for diemakers to work with and support perfect creased packaging."
rillma+ is available from us as sheet material in many thicknesses ranging between 0.3 mm and 1.9 mm. Depending on the requirements in full and half format, with and without self-adhesion. In addition, we also supply the matching accessories such as rillma bolts and corresponding rubber rings.
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.
