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 has continuously expanded its services in the past year. The newest member of the Marbach service family is the Marbach Performance Boost package. By which, Marbach supports its consulting service which makes its own process know-how available to its customers and thereby significantly increasing their productivity during the die-cutting process.
Marbach has been using for some time now a new rubber for rubbering cutting-dies. The name of this high-performance material is flexpower. Certified by ISEGA for use in the food industry, this rubber offers numerous advantages to operators. Marbach uses flexpower in corrugated board tools (both flat and rotary) and also sells it as raw material.
Marbach is one of the large material suppliers in Germany. Under the name Marbach Die Supplies, Marbach offers materials for packaging manufacturers that meet the requirements in the field of die-cutting. In order to support its customers even more in increasing their performance, Marbach has expanded its material portfolio.
Marbach was present at the IADD Odyssey in Atlanta Georgia from May 1 to 3, 2019. At this event Marbach showcased its latest technologies in the fields of die-cutting technology as well as machines and materials for cutting-die production. More than 250 visitors showed particular interest in Marbach and its technologies. During the three days many interesting conversations took place at the two Marbach stands.
