We are well-known for our extensive portfolio. Thus, we also supply the global plastics industry with cutting-dies. The high-precision Marbach steel rule dies are designed for use directly after the thermoforming process. Here they ensure the reliable separation of plastic cups and lids.
The SR (Steel-Rule) tools used for this purpose are characterized by their high precision and special features. Michael Kiesel, Sales Manager at Marbach: "Our SR tools are based on a technology that is perfectly adapted to the requirements of cutting plastic. The blades are installed in a waterjet-cut free-flow holder and the individual elements are floated on the base plate. This means that the steel rule centers itself with the thermoforming part during the die-cutting process and the die-cutting edge is therefore the same for all cavities. But that's not all: with our Flexi-Tab-System, visible nicks are a thing of the past: this is because special nick-tabs make nicks disappear, thus producing a flawless cup. Last but not least, the Marbach cutting rule silverline ensures particularly good cutting quality and long tool life."
Tools in SR design not only increase performance, but also stand for exceptional quality of thermoformed products.
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.
