Marbach Die Supplies has launched a new version of its mplaten|cleaner platen cleaning device.
Head of Marbach Die Supplies, André Angermeir: "The mplaten|cleaner in its original version is used very successfully by many of our customers. It is compatible with all common types of die-cutting machines. However, some of our customers use machines where space in the cutting platen is extremely tight. Here it became necessary to adapt the design of the mplaten|cleaner. With the new mplaten|cleaner-smart, we have developed a platen cleaning device that is always used when space in the cutting platen is extremely tight. The first customers using the smart version of the mplaten|cleaner are delighted."
The mplaten|cleaner is a device that removes dirt and rust from the cutting platen. Cleaning smoothes out unevenness in the cutting platen and significantly minimizes make-ready times. As a result, the cutting pressure can be reduced. This extends the service life of the tool. The cutting result is also positively influenced by a clean cutting platen and productivity in the cutting process increases.
Marbach not only manufactures tools for flat die-cutting machines, but also for rotary die-cutting machines. For rotary die-cutting of corrugated board, the trend is towards the use of rotary machines with active stripping technology. Marbach has developed specially equipped rotary tools for this purpose, which ensure high productivity on such machines.
Marbach offers a very extensive portfolio of cutting-dies. Marbach also produces tools for die-cutting very thick materials such as honeycomb corrugated board. Such materials place very special demands on the technology used.
Silvio Gruber, who has been responsible for the corrugated board division at Marbach, has gone into well-earned retirement shortly before Christmas. Until his recent retirement, Mr. Gruber worked for Marbach in various management positions for a period of 37 years.
