Masterstrip-Plate Now Available for Folding Carton

Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Karl Marbach GmbH, Heilbronn, Germany, has introduced a new, highly efficient stripping technology for difficult folding carton jobs. With a pressure plate fixed to the stripping upper die, the masterstrip-plate provides a stable and reliable stripping process. After having succesfully used the masterstrip-plate in the corrugated board sector for some time, the company is now making the technology available to customers in the folding carton sector.

Marbach's general sales manager for folding carton, Bernhard Reisser, explains that "ever faster and large-format machines, blanks with very small as well as a high number of waste parts, and the increasing use of cardboard with a high proportion of recycling material make highest demands of the tooling technology. And we have met these requirements. With the masterstrip-plate, we supply our customers with highest stripping reliability — even for extremely difficult jobs such as not-flat sheets. The key advantages of this technology are a high performance of the diecutter, a smooth sheet transport, and a very good stripping result. This is how we achieve highest reliability during the stripping process and thereby increase the productivity of our customers' diecutting department."
