Marbach has recently extended its portfolio. From now on Marbach will also produce high-precision steel rule dies for cold cut packaging. In the food industry these are mainly used for sliced sausage and cheese.
For cold cut applications, the complete packaging process takes place in one machine: first the packaging is thermoformed from a plastic film, then the product is inserted and the packaging is sealed by a cover film. The cutting of the packaging is also carried out in the same processing machine and is accomplished in two steps. First, the packaging is die-cut at right angles to the film and then a longitudinal cut is made. A special tool is used for cross-cutting.
Philipp Rüger, R&D Engineer Marbach Werkzeugbau: "This is where Marbach enters play. Recently, we started to produce cutting-dies which have been especially designed for cold cut packaging applications. All Marbach steel rule dies are equipped with the special msilver cutting rule. This coated cutting rule is extremely sharp and very pressure-resistant, it ensures long tool life and maximum productivity for cold cut packaging applications. And should the cutting performance of the knife be reduced, our solution makes it possible to exchange the knife very quickly, easily and, compared to full steel tools, at low cost.
The Marbach steel rule dies for the cross cutting of cold cuts packaging are now available.
Marbach provides solutions to ensure top performance for its customers. In order to make packaging more attractive and to visually highlight individual elements of packing, the embellishment process of embossing is often used. As an eye-catcher, it increases the impact of a package at the point of sale. This then has a sales-promoting effect for the packaged product. If the embossing process is not integrated into the die-cutting process but is carried out separately, this is known as embossing and die-cutting in two passes. This is more time-consuming than an embossing process integrated into the die-cutting process. But here, too, set-up times can be minimized.
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies (MDS) includes machines, equipment and materials for diemaking. In particular, MDS has expanded its range of manual devices in recent months. Among the most popular of these is the mcut|multi multifunctional cutting tool. It cuts rule materials quickly and without deformation. Plastika Mostar in Slovenia is already using mcut|multi and is very impressed.
Marbach supports its customers in producing packaging that stands out at the point of sale. One popular method for visually enhancing and refining packaging is embossing. This can be used to highlight individual elements in particular.
More information about embossing and the free white paper can be found on the Marbach Experience Hub.
Marbach Die Supplies, offers a comprehensive portfolio of materials and equipment for die-cutting. Marbach supplies manufacturers of packaging as well as manufacturers of cutting-dies. As of now, there are new product catalogs from Marbach Die Supplies for each of these two fields.
