Marbach is an expert when it comes to creasing in cigarette packaging. With its extensive range of products, Marbach offers solutions for the highest requirements.
For high-machine speeds in the packaging plant, creasing forces play a particularly important role. With the Marbach crease-plate technology, the creasing parameters – that are necessary for a smooth packaging process – can be reached simply and quickly. In combination with the Marbach creasing technology marbafold, 180-degree-fold become child’s play. The result: highest accuracy of the packaging and maximum productivity in the packaging machine. And even for round corner packaging with closely allied creases. But that’s not all: with the Marbach crease-bend-tester creasing values can be checked in detail. From the first material tests to examination during the production of cigarette packaging to the final inspections.
The crease-plate technology
In crease-plate technology, creasing comes first and cutting follows. Creasing doesn’t happen – as in the conventional production process – with creasing rules. Instead aluminum crease plates with creasing edges are used. They have an elastic base. They are therefore higher than the cutting rules. This makes it possible to first crease and then cut. This happens in one stroke in a conventional flatbed die-cutting machine. There are make-ready foils between the die-board and the elastomer, with which the crease-plates can be adjusted in their height quickly and easily and from the front if necessary. So the strength of the creasing shape, the folding resistance and spring back force of the creasing can be adjusted to the demands of the final customers without problems.
Marbafold technology is used when it comes to reducing the reset force as far as possible. For cigarette packaging these are the so called 180-degree fold in the area of the top flap. Marbach can in this case, integrate the marbafold into the crease-plate-die.
The crease-bend-tester by Marbach is a quality control device with which the creasing values of folding boxes can be checked. It has been developed specially for this task and is used by various Marbach customers, paperboard producers and also brand owners. The samples, which are necessary for the test, can be die-cut simply and quickly with the marbapess, which has been developed for this purpose. They can then be tested without any time-loss.
Head of Sales international, Bernhard Reisser: “We offer our customers the best solutions for their highest requirements in cigarette packaging production with our diverse creasing technologies. For the optimization of their production and for highest performance in the packaging process.”

Marbach is still on the path to success with its premium stripping tool, the masterstrip|plate. During the last months this special stripping technology has significantly increased its percentage share of sales in all stripping tools. But why has this Marbach technology become so popular?
Marbach is known to the market for its solutions that satisfy all requirements. Marbach customer Werner Kenkel, has relied on Marbach tools for more than 10 years now and is very successful with them.
The masterstrip|plate is not only a powerful tool for high-speed dynamic stripping. It is also the perfect solution for making sure the side flaps in a cigarette box are cut through and opened up 100%.
Marbach has recently added a special high-speed tool for flat die-cutting to its portfolio: the marbaspeed cutting-die for corrugated board. This new Marbach tool has been catching on more and more in the market. It is characterized by its being equipped with a new type of rubber: Marbach flexpower. Initially only used for rotary tools, flexpower has been applied to flat tools for the corrugated board industry since earlier this year. With increasing success. More and more customers order their tool in this special version “marbaspeed”.
