A close miss is still a miss.

Calibration tool for the perfect fit.

If the individual stations and the upper and lower tools in a die-cutting machine are not perfectly matched to each other, very time-consuming set-up processes are pre-programmed.

Even if it is only a matter of a few tenths of a millimeter. The Marbach solution: The calibration tool – combined with marbazero!


Low setup times. And maximum process reliability in the die-cutting process.
The die-cutting machine plays a major role when it comes to make-ready times. The optimal synchronization of all stations and tool components is especially important. With the Marbach calibration tool, this register is perfectly realized. For highest process reliability during die-cutting, stripping and blanking. And significantly reduced set-up times for each individual job.

But why is calibration necessary at all?
The explanation is quite simple: a die-cutting machine is subject to unavoidable wear. This includes, for example, a change in chain elongation with effects on the gripper bar position. But also the replacement of essential machine parts during maintenance or a machine crash cause a machine to be out of balance. For you as a packaging manufacturer, this means: increased make-ready times, reduced machine performance and negative effects on packaging quality.

It's best if you don't let it get that far in the first place. How do you do that? It's simple. With the use of the calibration tool. Because with the help of this new technology, the optimum basic setting of a die-cutting machine is identified and all machine stations as well as upper and lower tools in the individual stations of die-cutting, stripping and blanking are perfectly adjusted to each other. This means you benefit from shorter make-ready times, high process reliability and top packaging quality. But that's not all: because the net output of your machine also increases. This means that the initial cost of a calibration tool pays for itself in no time at all. And if you include the calibration of your die-cutting machine in the maintenance routine of your production routine, you will benefit permanently from the best performance in the production of your packaging.

Our tips for you: Complete the calibration tool with:

1. marbazero.
To ensure that the steel counter plate fits the cutting-die perfectly, there are steel counter plates with marbazero. This gives you the perfect register in no time at all. For maximum performance in your die-cutting station.

2. DZL|plate. 
The digital zone levelling consists of a special protection plate that makes order-related zone levelling unnecessary. It compensates for system-related tolerances in the cutting platen for months. For minimum make-ready times and maximum performance.

3. mplaten|cleaner-smart.
With the mplaten|cleaner-smart cutting platen cleaning device, you ensure a clean cutting platen and thus a highly efficient die-cutting process.
