A close miss is still a miss.

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!


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 TIP:
The DZL|plate in combination with the mplaten|cleaner perfectly complements the use of the calibration tool. This makes your die-cutting machine fit for a highly efficient die-cutting process.

Ready for the future?!

The future is here! Digitalization and Industry 4.0 are trends that can no longer be ignored. But how should a non-digital process - like the production of packaging - be digitalized?

It's simple: we pave the way to the digital future of die-cutting for you. For smooth processes. Short make-ready times. And a clear goal: to arrive in Industry 4.0. Here you will find more information and two free web sessions.

Simply productive.

A hotfoiling die for packaging embellishment must be perfectly positioned. Whether flat or fluted, the positioning must match the layout. Unfortunately, in practice positioning is a very time-consuming process.

Our solution: the thinplate system. On this special steel plate, you can adjust and archive the embossing position during hotfoiling. This saves you valuable set-up time for each repeat job.

Die-cutting 4.0.

Packaging production requires - among other things - a die-cutting machine and cutting-dies. At the present time: there is no connection between die-cutting machine, cutting-die and user.

The future: CONNECT|M. A software solution that connects the die-cutting machine and the tool with the user on a cloud-based system. For performance tracking and tool management. The basis for maximum transparency in packaging production.
