Marbach has decided to cooperate with laser solutions specialist Cutlite Penta. In a development cooperation, Marbach will work with Cutlite Penta to create an optimized laser program that will meet the Marbach Group's high demands for laser systems.
Thomas Kandlbinder, Head of Development & Service at Marbach: "The Marbach Group with 20 locations worldwide has more than 50 laser systems in operation. Our demands on quality, handling and flexibility of the laser systems are extremely high. When equipping our machine park, no off-the-shelf products are sufficient for us; we need machines that are perfectly tailored to our requirements. That is why we are very pleased to have found in Cutlite Penta a partner with whom we are ideally equipped for the future. We are having the laser systems from Cutlite Penta customized for us. Within the framework of various development projects, we will combine our experience in the production of cutting-dies and the development of machines with Cutlite Penta's broad production program. The result will be a new, optimized laser program, not off-the-shelf, but perfectly suited to the requirements of the Marbach Group. The new laser systems will be designed for the efficient cutting-die production of the future."
Marbach will gradually equip its worldwide locations with this new laser generation. In addition, Marbach is also equipping in-house dieshops around the world with equipment for diemaking. The new laser generation produced by Cutlite Penta will thus also be available for companies outside the Marbach Group.
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.
For us, an eventful but also successful year is coming to an end. Right at the beginning of the year, the war in Ukraine caused market turbulence and triggered a procurement crisis. We met these challenges with good planning and inventory management.
For many years now, we have traditionally donated 10,000 € to aid projects at Christmas under the motto "Donations instead of gifts". This year, due to the difficult situation in Ukraine, the management of Marbach decided to donate the entire amount to aid projects in connection with the war in Ukraine.
