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.
Marbach now provides on its new Experience Hub exclusive content and information for interested parties from the packaging industry. In addition to videos, animations and digital brochures, visitors of this page can also download white papers on important industry-specific topics and make direct appointments with a Marbach contact person. Marbach specialists will answer questions via email, chat or phone.
Once again this year Marbach will follow in a long-established tradition: Marbach will make Christmas donations to two aid projects under the motto “donations instead of presents”. When selecting the recipients of the donations, it has been important to the Marbach Management to split the money between internationally well-known and regionally respected institutions. This year, Marbach has donated 7,000 Euro to "Help - Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe e.V." and an additional donation of 3,000 Euro to the "Tafeln Heilbronn" (a food distribution charity). Due to the current pandemic situation, however, the handover of the donations was different than usual this year. One of the donations was handed over online, the other with face masks and at a distance.
In November Marbach participated in the new virtual trade show ConneXion. During the 4 weeks of the ConneXion exhibition large numbers of visitors informed themselves about news in the packaging industry. Marbach presented its latest new developments for more performance in packaging production.
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.
