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.
We are known for our innovative technologies that make life easier for the user. One of these is the split anvil, which ensures that packaging can be equipped with elegant and functional opening mechanisms.
In 1923, the Marbach company began as a 3-man workshop in Heilbronn, Baden-Württemberg. 100 years later, the small craftsman business has become a global market leader operating worldwide. Today, the Marbach Group, with its 1,600 employees around the world, is a key partner for the global packaging industry.
Such a long company history cannot be taken for granted – in Germany only a little more than 1% of the companies ever reach 100 years. The fact that we have managed to achieve this, is due to many different factors.
Our story reads like an exciting novel.
In addition to materials for packaging manufacturers, our division Marbach Die Supplies also supplies equipment for the die-cutting process. This includes two mobile workbenches mbench|smart and mbench|pro. These are distinguished by their flexible application possibilities.
The workbenches in the mbench series are not only equipped with smooth-running heavy-duty wheels for flexible use, but also offer an ideal work surface, storage space for tools and materials, as well as the option of fitting them with suitable hand tools. This means that tools can be repaired and processed in a minimum of space.
With the Marbach lower pin unit, we have a tool on the market that is mainly used for jobs where the requirements for waste-free die-cut blanks are very high. This is because waste is stripped in an especially reliable way with the lower pin unit in these applications.
Lower pin units are used in the stripping station of a die-cutting machine. They are particularly useful when very small waste parts have to be stripped and when maximum reliability is required during stripping.
