For several months now Marbach has been equipping its premium tools marbaspeed, for flat die-cutting, and marbaspeed|r, for rotary die-cutting, with its new special rubber flexpower. This new type of rubbering stands for durability and best die-cutting performance. Statistics show the extent of its success: Marbach sold more than 2,000 rotary dies for corrugated board alone in the marbaspeed|r version.
Marbach has recently presented its new technology designed to reduce the make-ready times for reverse cutting. Over the past few months, this has become more and more popular on the market under the name of "height-adjustable anvil". Our customers benefit from reduced make-ready times, functional packaging and easy handling when using height-adjustable anvils.
Marbach Werkzeugbau took fifth place in the "Excellence in Production" competition 2017 in the category "External Toolmaking over 50 employees" and 18th place in the overall ranking. This competition, which was hosted by the organizer's association of the Aachen Machine Tool Laboratory (WZL), the Aachen Technical University (RWTH) and the Frauenhofer Institute for Production Technology (IPT), has long been established in the tool and mould- making world.
Marbach will soon officially open its new training center. Prior to this, participants of the advanced course "Corrugated board processing – flat die-cutting" from the Paper Centre Gernsbach had the opportunity to spend a day at Marbach‘s new die-cutter as part of a 3-day seminar.

Marbach Werkzeugbau (Tool-Manufacturing) is one of the 17 founding members of the newly established China Thermoforming Association (CTFA). This association aims to promote the development of the Chinese thermoforming industry and consists of both Chinese and international members.
Marbach has shown strong efforts for international growth in recent years. A production facility in the USA was followed by another one in Malaysia. The Heilbronn-based company is now planning to strengthen its activities in Asia and will therefore expand further in 2018. On December 19, 2017 the contract for a joint venture with the die-cutting machine manufacturer Masterwork Machinery Co. Ltd. was signed in Tianjin, China.
Marbach is known for its innovative strength. For over a year, Marbach has been working on the development of a new embossing technology. In short, Marbach is now ready to launch polymar.
Marbach Automation & Service now offers a cleaning device for corrugated board die-cutting machines: the mplaten|cleaner. With it, the platen of a die-cutting machine can be cleaned efficiently by the machine operator and the machine’s productivity increased.
“Marbach Die Supplies” delivers materials for the production of cutting-dies to die-makers worldwide. At the urgent request of our customers, Marbach has now supplemented its portfolio. For some time past, a new kind of rubbering has been used for the Marbach cutting-die marbaspeed|r: it is called flexpower. From now on, this very successful rubber will also be available from Marbach as a raw material.
Marbach is approaching the end of an eventful year. 2017 has been characterized by innovative products that Marbach has brought to market to enable better customer performance. As well as investments in machinery and buildings. But with all that, Marbach has not forgotten people who are less fortunate. And that's why this Heilbronn-based company has remained true for many years to one key principle: "donating instead of giving". When selecting the recipients of donations, it is important for the Marbach management to divide the money between internationally well-known and regionally respected institutions. This year Marbach donated 7,000 euros to the aid organization Help – Help for Self-Help e.V. and 3,000 euros to the Kindersolbad gGmbH in Bad Friedrichshall.
Marbach Tool Manufacturing (Werkzeugbau) supplies customers worldwide with thermoforming tools for the packaging industry. As a result, the company can be found at trade fairs around the globe. This was also the case at the 9th International Plastic Fair (IPF) in Japan which took place from 24th to 28th October 2017 in Tokyo, Japan.
Marbach has focused on the topic: performance. Especially performance for its customers. Demanding of itself: to offer the right solution for every requirement. Against this background, Marbach has extended still further its knowledge and abilities during the last months. Besides innovative products, Marbach also offers its customers comprehensive services – and recently training courses.
Marbach Tool Manufacturing (Werkzeugbau) has in recent months increasingly sold tools with the Mafox|F system. This means that customers' demand for this Marbach technology has been growing significantly.
Marbach Tool Manufacturing, one of the leading producers of thermoforming tools for the plastics industry, presented some innovations from its product portfolio at the Thin Wall Packaging Asia in Singapore. Since the Thin Wall Packaging Cologne has been an important event in the industry for years, the Thin Wall Packaging Asia took place for the second time. And already it is the most important event for thin wall packaging in the Asian region. On the 18th and 19th of September, the “Who's Who” in the packaging industry for thin wall plastics met in Singapore. 100 participants came to the congress to listen to lectures, to take part in workshops and to network.
Marbach launched its tool marbaclean onto the market last year. Product safety and conformity to highest hygiene demands are benefits, that are attracting great interest in the market. marbacelan is ISEGA certified and therefore suitable for packaging production in the food industry – particularly for direct packaging, which has direct contact with the packaged goods.
Marbach knows the requirements of the market. Especially for manufacturing cigarette packaging where the demands on quality are high, and the packaging process has to be especially productive. With the crease bend tester, Marbach offers its customers a device with which creasing forces and folding resistance of a package can be tested precisely. For the smooth packaging process of cigarettes.
Marbach presented some time ago its technology for optically appealing visible edges in corrugated board packaging. Since then various customers are employing pure edge. One of these customers is the Sealed Air Verpackungen GmbH in Alsfeld, Germany. Sealed Air has been so convinced by this technology that in the meantime all its tools for single-wall corrugated board have been equipped with pure edge.
After the installation of a die-cutting machine at Marbach at the beginning of July, the preparations for the new training center are running at full speed at the Heilbronn-based die-maker. The official start is planned for the beginning of 2018. Marbach will then offer its customers training on the topics of die-cutting of paperboard and corrugated board. The focus will be on topics such as productivity and the significant reduction of make-ready time.
Since Marbach has restructured its division „Materials for the production of cutting-dies“ and has recently been renamed Marbach Die Supplies, the positive market acceptance has been very well received at Marbach. The extended portfolio has generated a positive mood with Marbach customers. Because as one of the main material suppliers in Germany, Marbach is the only company that is able to test its products in advance in its own production units and on the in-house die-cutting machine.
There are many different possibilities to refine packaging and to upgrade them for the POS. De- and embossing in 2D or 3D, hotfoil, pure edge or reverse cutting. But there are also sophisticated creases, for example many creases close to each other, make something special out of packaging. We offer our customers the right solution for every requirement with our tools and technologies. For extraordinary packaging at the POS. That is not only a visual but also a haptic experience for the consumers.
Customers of Marbach rely more and more on the application of steel counter plates as a counter-die. This development comes as no surprise since demands on functionality and appearance of packaging blanks are continually increasing. The steel counter plate meets both criteria. The high quality of the creases that are created with it, leads to a very good functionality of folds. Moreover it eliminates the occurrence of marks on the blank.
The sixth technology forum of the European Diemakers Association (ESU) took place between the 15th and 16th of September in Luxembourg. Marbach was on-site as an exhibitor to present its newest innovations with its two divisions Automation & Service and Die Supplies.
Marbach is known for its numerous innovations and wide service portfolio. To use the advantages of these innovations optimally for themselves and to find solutions for all requirements together with Marbach, that’s the high demand of the Marbach customers. Satisfied customers confirm that Marbach meets these requirements perfectly.
Marbach introduced its technology pure edge to the market last year. With it, visible edges of corrugated board packaging become especially appealing. In order to illustrate the appearance of pure edge more clearly for the customers, Marbach has now produced two packaging samples. The customers can request these samples to convince themselves first-hand about the advantages of the pure edge technology.
Marbach is still on the path to success with its premium stripping tool, the masterstrip|plate. During the last months this special stripping technology has significantly increased its percentage share of sales in all stripping tools. But why has this Marbach technology become so popular?
Marbach is an expert when it comes to creasing in cigarette packaging. With its extensive range of products, Marbach offers solutions for the highest requirements.
The masterstrip|plate is not only a powerful tool for high-speed dynamic stripping. It is also the perfect solution for making sure the side flaps in a cigarette box are cut through and opened up 100%.
Marbach has recently added a special high-speed tool for flat die-cutting to its portfolio: the marbaspeed cutting-die for corrugated board. This new Marbach tool has been catching on more and more in the market. It is characterized by its being equipped with a new type of rubber: Marbach flexpower. Initially only used for rotary tools, flexpower has been applied to flat tools for the corrugated board industry since earlier this year. With increasing success. More and more customers order their tool in this special version “marbaspeed”.
Marbach introduced its optimized blanking technology at the beginning of the year. Since then all upper marbablankers from Marbach are equipped with the new long-life component marbapusher|p. As a result customers are very pleased with the increased flexibility and productivity in their blanking process. The marbapusher|p is available exclusively from Marbach.
Marbach not only delivers cutting-dies, but also materials and tools for print shops.
Nicks ensure a smooth transport of sheets through the die-cutting machine. They should however distract as little as possible from the appearance. That’s why packaging producers always try to have as few and small nicks as possible. Nicks play an even greater role in producing a packaging blank. Because transport nicks affect the performance of the production process. And as a result machine speeds. Waste nicks are largely responsible for the waste-free quality of the produced blank.
More than a year ago Marbach launched its new blanking technology on the market. It has established itself more and more during the last months. Over 100 customers worldwide already use the new Marbach technologies marbablanker and lightblanker as the standard. And this number is continuously increasing.
Under the name Marbach Automation & Service, the Heilbronn-based cutting-die manufacturer supplies customers worldwide with machines and devices for die-making.

Marbach ordered a die-cutting machine of the type Brausse 1060 ER at Brausse Europe in April 2017. With it, Marbach will create a training center for internal and external trainings during the next months. Moreover, using this machine, Marbach will test innovations and even better fulfil customer requirements. After 10 weeks, the waiting time was finally over: on the 3rd of July, the new machine was delivered to Marbach in Heilbronn.
Following established tradition at Marbach, the Heilbronn-based manufacturer of tools for the packaging industry, the 5th Family Day took place on the 7th of July 2017.

The employees and their relatives spent a fun-filled day at the Marbach company premises in beautiful sunshine – only interrupted by a short thunderstorm. And more than 1,000 people came.
Marbach presented to the visitors of the Marbach & Brausse Innovation Days its solution for a fast make-ready and archiving of hotfoil clichés: the Marbach thinplate system. Customers save the most of make-ready time with this system. This advantage becomes especially clear for repeat orders. A customer, who has already used this system for years is the company Tako Carton Plant Ltd. – that belongs to the Pyroll-Group.

The formats 130 and 162 are still in progress.
Marbach built its own production hall in 2014 for its rotary tools product division. With that, Marbach created the capacity to meet the increasing need of high-tech rotary tools. Besides the production of rotary tools, services can be offered such as re-sharpening of tools as well as re-segmentation of Marbach and third-party tools.
Marbach not only delivers cutting-dies, but also the proper materials. During the last years, Marbach has increasingly extended its portfolio. And today it belongs to the large material suppliers in Germany. To underline this change in its name and also to focus on its core business, Marbach has decided to name its material division “Marbach Die Supplies”. Starting on the 1st of June, Marbach materials will be sold under this name.
Marbach has a reputation for offering the right solution for every requirement. It now lives up to this motto once more with its new die-cutting machine from Brausse. Because with it, Marbach will expand its competence as well as its range of services. This results in completely new possibilities for the Heilbronn-based cutting-die expert.
Marbach has implemented a new production process for the manufacture of rim-rolling screws for drinking cups. In the conventional process, rim-rolling screws were turned which limited flexibility concerning the contour. This flexibility however can be increased significantly through the milling process Marbach uses. With it, Marbach fulfils its motto “the right solution for every requirement” once more.
Marbach continues to invest in its machines. Since a Speedperformer KMD85 from Kiefel was installed in 2016, Marbach will soon expand its machine park even more. The Gabler M98 MAXX is the fourth Gabler machine that has been purchased by Marbach during the last years. A close partnership links Marbach and Gabler already since the 1980s.
Marbach has optimized its reverse cutting technology. With the new height-adjustable anvil, customers can now adjust anvil height of their cutting-die on their own, if necessary, and thereby save a significant amount of make-ready time.
With the nick-breaking technology Marbach has brought to the market – already in autumn 2016 – a solution that optimizes the blanking of very small blanks with a double knife. Since then, many customers have employed this new Marbach technology.
