Marbach has recently introduced its new split height-adjustable anvil for reducing make-ready times during reverse cutting. Since its introduction Marbach has sold this innovative technology many times over. Customers using tools with a split height-adjustable anvil are very impressed.
During reverse cutting the paperboard material is not cut through but the carton is scored from both sides in an offset position. This creates a special tearing mechanism that is very popular for packaging. Reverse cutting requires a very high degree of precision because the paperboard material to be cut is very thin and the tear mechanism only works well if the scoring is not too weak and not too strong. A great challenge for the cutting-die and the machine operator.
Bernhard Reisser, Sales Manager at Marbach: "For reverse cutting, success lies in adjusting the cutting-die and counter plate in such a way that the scoring of the carton works optimally. To ensure the make-ready process is as efficient as possible, we have developed the split height-adjustable anvil. It is height adjustable and thus provides an optimal, fast, and efficient way of setting up the reverse cutting from the front of the cutting-die. The height of the reverse cutting can be individually adjusted, quickly and easily and so can be set in the best possible way.
For Marbach customers this means easy handling, highest accuracy and a stable scoring result over the whole production run.
Reisser continues: "Customers who use our new technology report significantly reduced make-ready times and perfectly working tearing mechanisms as well." With this innovation Marbach contributes to a further reduction of set-up times for its customers.
Marbach has been a specialist for the production of cutting-dies for the packaging industry for many decades. In addition, the Marbach portfolio also includes tools for special technical solutions. One of which is the production of cutting-dies with particularly high cutting rules.
In May of this year, Marbach launched its new lower pin unit with high precision lower pins. This is mainly used for jobs where very small amounts of waste have to be stripped and where requirements for die-cut blanks to be waste-free are very high. With the lower pin unit, waste is stripped very safely in these areas of application. In the last months, several customers have already been using the new Marbach technology. Customer feedback has been consistently positive.
Marbach is working at full speed on various digitalization and Industry 4.0 projects.
