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.

Tobacco: Perfect creasing is what counts.

The creasing of a package must be perfect. Especially in the tobacco sector. Because cigarette packing machines react very sensitively, especially at full speed.

This is why Marbach has further developed its crease-plate-die technology. crease-plate-die|+ and crease-plate-die|rc with their special features ensure perfect creases for every requirement.
