Marbach has a new product in its portfolio. With the calibration tool package, Marbach customers can now adjust the components of their die-cutter faster and more easily. Through this, the set-up and make-ready time can be reduced.
With time the zero position of the machine frame micro-adjustment is lost. This leads little by little to deviations. The stations’ die-cutting, stripping and blanking no longer fit 100%. Due to this, the set-up and make-ready times increase for every single job. And productivity decreases.
Ingo Graham, Application engineer at Marbach: “We have recently developed a new tool package through which the three units: die-cutting, stripping and blanking, can be adjusted on, and to, each other. Using this package, the tools can be, so to speak, reset to zero with regard to each other. Thus the register cutting-die to counter plate and also the upper to lower part at the stripping and blanking unit, can be optimized. Everything fits precisely together once again. In this way the set-up and make-ready times of our customers can be reduced significantly, and performance increased. Another advantage for the operator is when more than one machine is reset with the calibration tool, using the tool package on different machines becomes easier.”
This procedure should only be implemented by qualified personnel. For support, die-cutting machine manufacturers can also become involved.
An exciting year comes to an end for Marbach. For many years now it has been Marbach's tradition to make donations to charities instead of giving presents to customers at Christmas. When selecting the recipients, it is important to the Marbach management to divide money between internationally renowned and regionally respected institutions. This year Marbach has donated 8,000 euros to Help - Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe e.V. and has also supported Offene Hilfen gGmbH Heilbronn with a donation of 2,000 euros.
Through its Marbach Die Supplies & Automation (MDS&A) division, Marbach sells machines to die-makers. The currently most successful laser system in Marbach's portfolio is the mlas|compact-2.
Marbach is known for its solutions designed to meet all requirements. For applications in the pharmaceutical sector, Marbach has specific tools in its portfolio that have been specially designed for this field of application.
