New and yet comfortingly familiar: the split anvil

Safe processes for elegant opening mechanisms.
Opening mechanisms are a major challenge: long make-ready times, low repeat accuracies and unstable cutting processes.
The Marbach solution: The new split anvil, a special reverse cutting technology which enables the implementation of particularly elegant opening mechanisms, with significantly reduced make-ready times and great results …


Opening perforations are practical but have disadvantages. On the one hand, they let dust through and, on the other, they do not look attractive. This is where reverse cutting technology can help, whereby both sides of the box are partially cut. This looks good and works perfectly thanks to Marbach …

With reverse cutting, the substrate is not cut through entirely but has slightly offset partial cuts from both sides. This maintains the printed image and the packaging remains sealed. Reverse cutting enables significantly more elegant opening mechanisms to be used with the packaging. Marbach mastered this technology many years ago. With the new, split anvil, Marbach has now taken a major step further, which is good news for all producers who have relied on reverse cutting technology in the past. They are now able to use the split anvil with immediate effect.

Make-ready times are considerably shorter. And what is more, the stability of the cutting process as well as the repeat accuracy are also increased with this Marbach added-value solution.
