Last year, we launched our CONNECT|M system solution. This new system solution for more digitalization in the die-cutting process, consists of two modules: Tool Management and Performance Tracking, both of which ensure transparency and efficiency in packaging production.
Marbach Project Manager Dominic Fischer: "Tool management plays an important role in increasing efficiency in packaging production. The production tool must be located quickly, maintenance must be ensured, and reorders made possible in a quick and efficient manner. Tool provisioning must therefore work perfectly. With the CONNECT|M Tool Management module, our customers have the advantage that all important information such as CAD data, storage location, maintenance management, and additionally order history, set-up data as well as documentation data is always available exactly when it is needed. This cuts out the need for any long searches. What this means for our customers: simply place the manufacturing tool on the die-cutting machine and get on with packaging production. And all this for a very low monthly license fee."
The "Tool Management" module can be combined with the "Performance Tracking" module. This automatically determines and evaluates key performance indicators. These key figures are available at the touch of a button and can be stored directly with the tool. This makes tool use even more efficient.
In 2023, we will be able to look back on 100 years of company history. After this special event, the next big event for us is already waiting to happen next year: In one year – exactly on May 28, 2024 – the leading trade show of the printing and packaging industry, drupa in Düsseldorf, will finally take place again.
We are at home in the packaging industry. Almost 100 years ago, we began in Heilbronn as a 3-man business with a small workshop measuring 36 m² (4 x 9 m). Today the company has 1,600 employees worldwide at many locations around the globe. In Heilbronn alone, the total area for production and administration is 24,352 m².
As a result of this expansion, space in the existing buildings has repeatedly become cramped over the years. As a consequence, new buildings and extensions have had to be built.
In addition to our comprehensive portfolio of cutting-dies, we also offer compatible storage systems. The Marbach Die Storage System (MDSS) has been designed for packaging manufacturers seeking optimally functioning in-house logistics.
