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 Werkzeugbau is looking forward to the upcoming K fair in Düsseldorf. This will take place from 16 to 23 October 2019. Marbach will be represented with a 94 m² stand and will present its new products to the visitors of this important plastics fair.
Marbach will take part in the Night of Apprenticeship in Heilbronn on the 26th of September 2019. On this day young people will be able to experience Marbach under the motto "Pack the world.

Marbach is currently working intensively on the topics of digitalization and industry 4.0. Marbach is also focusing on the digitalization of industrial processes. One step resulting from this project is changing invoicing from postal to digital. As of 01 August 2019, the majority of german Marbach customers will receive their invoices by email.
In its Marbach Die Supplies & Automation division Marbach supplies machines, equipment and materials for die-making and printshops. With the robogrip, Marbach has a rule puller in its portfolio which proves itself to be an effective helper at the die-cutting machine.
