Marbach Group has introduced its new reverse cutting technology for use in various paperboard and corrugated board packaging applications.

The new height-adjustable anvil included in the technology will allow customers to adjust anvil height of their cutting-die machines by themselves.

Reverse cutting technology is a possibility to offer paperboard or corrugated board packaging with a tear-off feature. 

This technology is considered to be optimal wherever attractive appearance, complete dust resistance, and easy-to-open features are essential.

Marbach Group marketing manager Tina Dost said: “When using the reverse cutting technology, highest precision is vital for optimal function.

“Because in reverse cutting the board is scribed on both sides – from the inside and outside of the package.

“This task becomes more difficult the thinner the paperboard is. With our new, height-adjustable anvil our customers can now save make-ready time and achieve more consistent results.”

Marbach’s new reverse cutting technology uses an aluminium block, the exact height of which depends on the thickness of the die-cut material.

"With our new, height-adjustable anvil our customers can now save make-ready time and achieve more consistent results."

Unlike traditional solutions, the aluminium block is not inserted into a laser cut contour in its complete height. It is inserted in a height minus the die-board thickness and screwed onto the cutting-die from above.

Foils are placed beneath the anvil, which can be adjusted in its height very quickly and easily through the removal or addition of these foils.

Dost further added: “In this way our customers can set-up their tool in the die-cutting machine much more quickly and precisely than with the conventional reverse cutting technology.”

Marbach’s new reverse cutting option is available in the market.
