That is obvious. What is not obvious, however, is how high the cost of the cutting-die is in relation to a specific product.
The Marbach Group has customers in almost all regions of the world who could not be more different: with different company sizes, structures and organizations. Within the scope of an extensive market data project we have determined the average cost share of the cutting-die on a folding carton or corrugated board packaging.
Of course, there are many differences to be considered in an international survey, such as country-specific and regional influences and different price structures for the procurement of raw materials. Since raw material prices sometime vary greatly from region to region, the conclusion would be that the cost share of the cutting-die would have to be very different depending on the region/country. But this is not the case. If you look at the proportion of the cost of the cutting-die that is part of the selling price (= turnover), the picture is very clear.
You will find the exact numbers in the graphic after registration. The result is surprising. Despite very different costs in the different countries of the world, the share of the costs of the cutting-die of the packaging is very similar. Would you have expected that?

A hotfoiling die for packaging embellishment must be perfectly positioned. Whether flat or fluted, the positioning must match the layout. Unfortunately, in practice this 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.share More
Packaging production requires - among other things - a die-cutting machine and cutting-dies. The present: 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 tool with the user on a cloud-based basis. For performance tracking and tool management. The basis for maximum transparency in packaging production.share More
An uneven platen can lead to extensive area patching with every new order and a substantial waste of time.
The Marbach solution: when inserted into the diecutter, the DZL|plate protection plate compensates for system-related tolerances in the platen for many months …
