New products. Company news. We are constantly moving. For your perfomance.
We are well-known for our extensive portfolio. Thus, we also supply the global plastics industry with cutting-dies. The high-precision Marbach steel rule dies are designed for use directly after the thermoforming process. Here they ensure the reliable separation of plastic cups and lids.
Marbach Die Supplies not only supplies materials, but also machines for cutting-die production. One machine that stands for the highest efficiency in diemaking is the mjet|1. This compact waterjet machine cuts the ejector rubber for a cutting-die automatically and with absolute precision.
With our blanking tool alublanker, we feature a tool in our portfolio that has managed to convince numerous customers. This is because the alublanker is not only characterized by its low weight, but also by its high productivity.
The alublanker is a high-precision blanking tool lower part, made completely from one piece and in one milling operation. The separating grid is made of aluminum and is completely CNC milled.
We recently presented our digital system solution for even more transparency and performance in die-cutting. CONNECT|M has enjoyed increasing popularity since its market launch. More and more customers are recognizing the many benefits they can achieve through more digitalization in the die-cutting process.
In mid-July, we organized a week with various web sessions around the topic of "Sustainability in Packaging Production" under the title "Sustainability Week".
After our last web session week on the topic of performance was very successful, also at the Sustainability Week more than 300 participants attended online.
We are known for our innovative solutions. One of these has just been launched on the market: the high-performance rubber marbaject. This has been specially designed for the corrugated board sector (flat and rotary). Cutting-dies equipped with this material are characterized by even better performance.
With our two technologies crease-plate-die|+ and crease-plate-die|rc, we offer two solutions for the tobacco sector in our portfolio. These are increasingly establishing themselves on the market due to their many advantages.

With our DZL|plateXL technology, we ensure efficient make-ready for large-format die-cutting machines. Once created and inserted into the die-cutting machine, the two-part protection plate of the DZL|plateXL permanently takes over the zone levelling of the machine.
Conventional stripping with lower pins is very time-consuming and at high speeds, offers limited functionality. Therefore, running under the name "dynamic stripping", Marbach offers different tools, marbastrip and masterstrip|plate which do not require any lower pins at all.
Our division Marbach Die Supplies supplies materials for packaging manufacturers that meet requirements in all aspects of die-cutting. The MDS-portfolio is diverse and includes a wide range of materials needed in a print shop in the die-cutting machine and tool environment: From make-ready tapes to creasing matrix make-ready tapes, grinding discs for inserting nicks in cutting rules, replacement rubber strips and much more.
Marbach Die Supplies offers a comprehensive portfolio for diemakers in counter plates for cutting-dies. Ranging from simple creasing matrixes to cutting plates for the production of steel counter plates. Yet, the top seller in counter plates at Marbach has remained the same for years: rillma+.
In our soon 100-year history, we can look back on many outstanding innovations and groundbreaking decisions. One of the most important decisions in our history was to invest in laser technology in the early 70s.
So, Marbach was the first company to introduce laser technology for the production of cutting-dies in Europe and has thus played a major pioneering role in shaping the packaging market.
We are currently pushing hard to sell our greenplate dieboard. Many customers have already switched to this ecologically sustainable tool alternative. This is because every greenplate dieboard sold, which is used instead of a conventional multiplex dieboard, supports the long-term supply security of cutting-dies in the current situation.
We are increasingly focusing on expanding our range of services. One of these service offers is the Performance Package. With this, we support you in improving your performance in the production of your packaging.
We are known for our requirement-oriented solutions. For applications in medical technology, we have special tools in our portfolio which have been designed specifically for this purpose.
We have recently launched our new blanking tool, the alublanker. Available in 102-106 format, this tool is characterized by its light weight and high precision. In recent months, more and more Marbach customers have discovered the alublanker and are successfully using it to separate blanks in their packaging production.
In addition to our comprehensive portfolio of cutting-dies, we also offer suitable storage systems. The Marbach Die Storage System (MDSS) is available for flat cutting-dies up to 2,100 format. It supports good in-house logistics for packaging manufacturers.
We will participate in the "12th SPE European Thermoforming Conference" in Vienna. After having been postponed several times due to the Corona pandemic, the event will now take place from March 31 to April 1 2022.
Due to our international position, and our forward-looking strategy, we are in the very fortunate position of being able to supply you without restrictions – even in today's currently difficult supply situation caused by the Corona pandemic and the Ukraine war.
So there will be no supply bottlenecks in the short and medium term. This is because in recent months we have restocked our warehouses with the most important raw materials for cutting-dies and increased capacities in all our plants. This is all the more important since we also supply the food and pharmaceutical industry with tools, and are therefore a vital part of the critical infrastructure.
We offer a comprehensive portfolio of dieboards. Depending on the requirements a suitable dieboard material is available.
There are dieboards for standard requirements as well as for ones with higher demands on durability and accuracy. For standard requirements, we offer two wooden dieboards: Multiplex and greenplate. For more exacting requirements dimensionally stable dieboards are available. Their material selection and structure ensure that they remain dimensionally stable even under hygroscopic influences and strong climate fluctuations. These include the Marbach solidplate as well as various duramar versions.
Marbach Die Supplies, has recently added new cut-off knives for special requirements to its portfolio. trimknife|multi is the solution when waste cut-off knives need to be added to a cutting-die.
Last year, we launched our CONNECT|M system solution. This new system solution for more digitalization in the die-cutting process, consists of two modules: Tool Management and Performance Tracking, both of which ensure transparency and efficiency in packaging production.
In rotary die-cutting, we offer further tool options in addition to our quality standard tools. In packaging production, a difference is made between the manufacturing process of flat die-cutting and rotary die-cutting. Die-cutting of corrugated board is often performed rotatively.
The multifunctional device mcut|multi from Marbach Die Supplies, cuts rule materials quickly and without any deformation. This allows tools in cutting-die preparation to be optimally prepared for the production use.
Last year, we introduced our two technologies crease plate die|+ and crease plate die|rc for die-cutting tobacco packaging. In the meantime, large numbers of customers have successfully used crease plate die|+ and crease plate die|rc and are enthusiastic about the performance that can be achieved with these two new die solutions.

Topics of our web sessions will be centered on our service offering "Performance Package", our brand new digital system solution CONNECT|M as well as our set-up aid marbazero.
Marbach not only manufactures tools for flat die-cutting machines, but also for rotary die-cutting machines. For rotary die-cutting of corrugated board, the trend is towards the use of rotary machines with active stripping technology. Marbach has developed specially equipped rotary tools for this purpose, which ensure high productivity on such machines.
Marbach offers a very extensive portfolio of cutting-dies. Marbach also produces tools for die-cutting very thick materials such as honeycomb corrugated board. Such materials place very special demands on the technology used.
Silvio Gruber, who has been responsible for the corrugated board division at Marbach, has gone into well-earned retirement shortly before Christmas. Until his recent retirement, Mr. Gruber worked for Marbach in various management positions for a period of 37 years.
Last year, Marbach launched its new CONNECT|M system solution. This new product for more digitalization in the die-cutting process has been met with great interest on the market with first projects already started.

Marbach has launched a new, groundbreaking system solution under the name CONNECT|M. With this, Marbach has achieved the transformation of a previously and largely analog process into a digital one. This offers completely new possibilities to the user. CONNECT|M provides cloud-based, digital connection of the cutting-die, the die-cutting machine and the user. The result is efficient die management in packaging production and key performance indicators at the touch of a button.
Marbach once again this year follows a long established company tradition: Marbach donates to different aid projects at Christmas under the motto "Donations instead of gifts". This year, Marbach will donate to two charity projects of the aid organization 'Help - Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe e.V.', which seeks to combat the consequences of climate change: 6,000 euros will go to the national project 'Flood Relief Germany' and an additional 4,000 euros to the international Christmas project Zimbabwe.
One machine upgrade, popular with Marbach customers, is the digital zone levelling DZL|plate. This protection plate is individually provided with a printed height profile and so can be adapted to the respective conditions of the die-cutting machine. The DZL|plate thus takes over the zone levelling of the machine, which reduces the make-ready times of the rules for each individual job.
Marbach has added a new blanking tool to its product range. The alublanker is, as its name suggests, made of aluminum and completely CNC-milled. One of the first customers to use the alublanker is Marbach's long-standing partner MPS in Obersulm - a company of the Consumer Packaging Business of the WestRock Group. The Obersulm site produces high-quality folding cartons for the international perfume and cosmetics industry.
Marbach provides solutions to ensure top performance for its customers. In order to make packaging more attractive and to visually highlight individual elements of packing, the embellishment process of embossing is often used. As an eye-catcher, it increases the impact of a package at the point of sale. This then has a sales-promoting effect for the packaged product. If the embossing process is not integrated into the die-cutting process but is carried out separately, this is known as embossing and die-cutting in two passes. This is more time-consuming than an embossing process integrated into the die-cutting process. But here, too, set-up times can be minimized.
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies (MDS) includes machines, equipment and materials for diemaking. In particular, MDS has expanded its range of manual devices in recent months. Among the most popular of these is the mcut|multi multifunctional cutting tool. It cuts rule materials quickly and without deformation. Plastika Mostar in Slovenia is already using mcut|multi and is very impressed.
Marbach supports its customers in producing packaging that stands out at the point of sale. One popular method for visually enhancing and refining packaging is embossing. This can be used to highlight individual elements in particular.
More information about embossing and the free white paper can be found on the Marbach Experience Hub.
