With its calibration tool package, Marbach ensures that its customers can quickly and easily re-adjust the components of their die-cutting machine for flat die-cutting of corrugated board. This results in a significant reduction of set-up and make-ready times.
Over time, the pre-set zero position of the die-cutter frame fine adjustment can be lost. This gradually leads to deviations. The die-cutting and stripping stations no longer perfectly fit together. As a result, the set-up and make-ready times for each individual job increase. Productivity decreases.
Ingo Graham, Product Manager at Marbach. "With the calibration tool package, the stations die-cutting and stripping can be re-adjusted to one another. As a result of this, the position of the cutting-die will again perfectly match the position of the counter plate. Also the upper and lower parts of the stripping station will be optimally aligned to each other. Everything fits together perfectly again. This significantly minimizes make-ready times for our customers and increases their performance."
A further advantage of the calibration tool package: if several machines are set-up with the calibration tool, flexible and efficient use of the same tool package on different corrugated board machines becomes much easier.
Special situations require special actions. In view of current events, we are intensively engaged in the question of how we can support facilities such as hospitals, nursing homes, etc., but also how we can protect our employees. In addition to door handle hooks for employees, which we manufacture ourselves at our Heilbronn site and which are already actively in use, we are currently producing special face shields which are used in hospitals.

Marbach is known in the market for providing individual solutions. So far, manual top knives have not been part of Marbach's portfolio. However, as customer requirements for high-precision manual top knives have become more and more demanding, Marbach has intensively dealt with this topic. The result is tools manufactured in a new production process which optimally meets customer requirements for more precision.
Marbach uses numerous dieboards for its cutting-dies. Depending on the requirements of the order, suitable dieboard material is selected in coordination with the customer. For high demands on the dimensional stability and service life of a tool, the Marbach portfolio includes various dimensionally stable dieboards.
