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.
Marco Kraiss, Head of the department Marbach Die Supplies: “Many of our customers appreciate the fact that we also produce cutting-dies ourselves and therefore know exactly what we are talking about. Because the materials we offer have been tested extensively in our own production. Moreover, we exclusively offer our own materials. For example our rule series with the cutting rules mhard, msoft, mpower and the creasing rule mcrease are only available at Marbach. Also the rubber material flexpower. Own innovations such as the marbanick or easyfix round off our unique portfolio.”
Marbach has become known in the market over the years with this approach. And is very successful with it. The expansion of the portfolio takes Marbach yet one step further. Because Marbach supplies its customers even more comprehensively. Ranging from materials for die-boards to rubber and Marbach cutting rules and various tools for the die-cutting production. Marbach customers like this. And reward Marbach as a result. This becomes more than clear when looking at the sales figures of Marbach Die Supplies.
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.
