2019 BCN Supplier Report

Dan D’Angelo, VP Sales, George M. Martin Co., reports that interest in their Scrubber® Technology continued to grow throughout the global market in 2018. “We also introduced some very exciting new features and products in the past year,” says D’Angelo. “We are entering 2019 with a manageable backlog of new orders and a continued focus on R&D that further expands our range of productivity and performance enhancing material handling solutions.” “Geo. M. Martin Company’s patented Scrubber® Technology for Geo Martin Rotary Die Cutter Stackers provides unmatched sheet control and virtually scrapless stacks and bundles. Scrubber Technology replaces the upper and lower friction driven belts of the scrap removal sections with upper and lower rows of offset, non-marring wheels driven with timing belts for perfect velocity control. This design allows die-cut scrap to fall clear of the blanks preventing impinged scrap from riding along the belts into the layboy section. Results are virtually scrap-free stacks and bundles. Geo. Martin Rotary Scrubber Stackers are available with a wide range of standard and optional features to maximize the performance, efficiency, finished product quality and profitability of your high-speed diecutting operations. Scrubber Technology is available across the range of new Geo. Martin Rotary Die Cutter Stackers and offers the same maximum sheet control and superior scrap removal as a field retrofit for existing Geo. Martin Stackers. Quik-Break™ III The new Quik-Break III (QBIII) is the latest generation of the popular Geo. Martin Quik-Break Separator. QBIII enhances productivity and product quality with a number of feature improvements, including: a new cycle time that is substantially faster than the QBII, an upgraded “Soft Start/Stop Break and Pull” cycle, unique multi-function ‘gapless’ upper platen, narrow bundle mode and proportional hydraulics. The QBIII is available in 68”, as well as 92” widths. Benefits of the QBIII include eliminating edge roll on small width bundles, multi-across breaks in a single cycle, quick setup with reduced stacker setup time, ‘Batch Mode’ indexing, automatic wide belt tracking, platen offset for nested bundles and bundle height sensing. Other new Geo Martin products include the Pitless Floor Conveyor (PFC) and the Trench Cover Plate (TCP). PFC integrates Pozi-Link Conveyor technology with a custom designed heavy-duty, low-profile scissors lift to provide the best of both worlds without the need...

BCN 2017 Supplier Report

2016 was an exciting and busy year for the Geo. M. Martin Company as we focused on a healthy production backlog, new technology R&D and SuperCorrExpo 2016. The popularity of the Martin’s LBX Scrubber® Stacker continued to grow breaching new international as well as domestic markets. The introduction of the new LBX MEGA-STAK Scrubber Rotary Die Cut Stacker was met with great excitement at SuperCorrExpo. Based on the very popular and proven LBX Scrubber design, the new stacker series includes many of the standard and optional features of its predecessor while incorporating new features and improvements to the popular design. The Scrubbers patented upper and adjustable lower offset wheel assemblies combine with unique scrappers and strategically located brushes to eliminate virtually all scrap before the blanks enter the layboy. The MEGA-STAK offers a wide range of standard and optional features that allow the convertor to customize the machine to perfectly meet their specific production needs. For a full list of MEGA-STAK features and benefits visit www.geomartin.com. 2016 also saw sustained growth of Geo. Martin’s Quick-Break® II nicked bundle line systems. Converters worldwide continue to realize the need to maximize the usage of the die drum surface in order to compete in current and future markets. Converters report doubling or tripling production simply by making use of more die surface. However, the gains from multi-out production go far beyond just square feet per machine feed. Properly nicked blanks allow diecutter operations to run at higher and more consistent production speeds, reduce or eliminate jams, and the reduce scrap especially where nesting allows the use of shared knife. The wider 92 inch Quik-Break II also allows converters to run two bundle logs of wider blanks, serving virtually all pizza box sizes, and can run logs that are 54 inches or greater. Geo. M. Martin Company would like to thank our loyal customers and industry partners for contributing to a very successful 2016. We look forward to 2017 with a commitment and enthusiasm for R&D of new products, commitment to our customers and customer service and development of new and exciting products and...

Geo. Martin Introduces 2 New Stackers

The Geo. M. Martin Company showcased its latest technology during 2016’s SuperCorrExpo. The company’s highly successful LBX Scrubber© stacker has been upgraded to the LBX MEGA-STAK Scrubber stacker and a slightly smaller version, the MBX MEGA-STAK Scrubber stacker made its debut at Geo. Martin’s booth on the show floor.   Both stackers are based on patented upper and offset lower roller assemblies along with unique patented scraper assemblies. These and other features enable the reliable and virtually scrap-free delivery of sheets matching or even exceeding the top running speeds of today’s most powerful rotary diecutters. Positive sheet control prevents jams of not only individual bundles but also multi-up and multi-out nicked bundles, utilizing the full-width of the diecutter. This can double and even triple production as measured by thousand square feet per hour.   Features common to both the LBX and MBX are:  Motorized Board Line Adjust Long and Short Shingle Brush Assemblies Automatic Nip Adjust Dual Entry Die Cut Control Zones Automatic Side-Shift Adjustments Upper Tilt Open Assembly for easy access   Standard features include Powered Roll-Out/Roll-Back, allowing the operator to move the stacker away from the press while running. The Jam Detection System utilizes three sets of eyes on the stacking deck and hopper assembly, monitoring board flow and immediately interrupt feed should a jam be detected. Motion controls are positioned at each jogger and include a “clear stacking deck” feature. A Pivoting Transfer Deck Assembly with Zero-Crush Rollers allows the collection of individual die-cut boxes and full width nicked sheets, and places them in a precise, and highly consistent, stream or shingle at all press speeds. Optional to both the LBX and MBX MEGA-STAKs is a Servo Controlled ZFI-II system that makes stack and bundle changes without a feed interrupt at all rated machine speeds.   Many optional add-on features are available enabling the LBX and MBX to be configured to each plant’s individual needs.  ...

Geo. Martin to introduce exciting new products at SuperCorrExpo 2016

Recognizing the demand for “consistency” and production data on box orders, Geo Martin introduces three new products at SuperCorrExpo engineered to improve performance of Rotary Die-Cut Stacking Lines and High Speed/High Capacity Nicked Bundle Lines. Based on the Scrubber® Technology, these new products deliver superior sheet control and exceptional scrap removal while offering enhanced versatility, improved cycle rates and a remarkably small nicked-bundle size. With over 60 LBX Scrubber Stackers in operation producing rates of 200 to 400 MSF per hour, one system often replaces three conventional systems. Geo Martin further enhances waste reduction with a new quality control system that monitors die-cut blanks, identifies out of spec product and interacts with the press to minimize...
