Marbach is represented at its Heilbronn headquarters by two divisions: Die Cutting Technology and Thermoforming Tool Manufacturing. But a product which directly connects these two divisions is SR technology (steel rule technology). This is because the Die Cutting Technology division supplies the Thermoforming Tool manufacturing division, and many other thermoforming manufacturers worldwide, with special steel-rule dies.
Michael Kiesel, Sales Manager at Marbach Die Cutting Technology: "After the thermoforming process, our specially manufactured steel-rule dies ensure the reliable separation of plastic cups produced during the thermoforming process. These tools are based on a technology which is perfectly adapted to the requirements of cutting plastic. The rules are installed in a water-jet cut holder and the individual elements are mounted floatingly on the base plate. This means that the steel rule is centered during the cutting process with the thermoformed part and the cutting edge is identical for all cavities. The Marbach silverline cutting rule ensures a particularly good cutting quality and long service life. Due to the high temperatures directly after the thermoforming process reduced cutting pressure is required. For reliable die-cutting. For best performance.
Tools in SR design increase the performance in the production of thermoformed products.
Marbach has decided to cooperate with laser solutions specialist Cutlite Penta. In a development cooperation, Marbach will work with Cutlite Penta to create an optimized laser program that will meet the Marbach Group's high demands for laser systems.
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies (MDS) includes machines, equipment as well as materials for diemaking. However, MDS does not only supply diemakers, but also packaging manufacturers with materials for daily needs as well as equipment and machines for the diecutting environment. One of the latest additions to the portfolio are the mbench|smart and mbench|pro workbenches.
Marbach supplies packaging manufacturers of folding boxes and corrugated packaging with tools and also offers them a wide range of die-cutting services. In this context, the topic of digitalization and Industry 4.0 is an important part of the current development work - both in tooling technology and in the services of the corporate group. However, not only Marbach's portfolio is becoming increasingly digital, but also its communication.
