Marbach is a family owned business. As such the company group assumes responsibility for future generations. The topic sustainability characterizes the company philosophy. For many years. That’s why Marbach takes regular action in addition to the longterm CSR projects.
According to the motto “your old mobile phone is too valuable for the trash…” Marbach employees have been asked in june to hand over used and broken phones. The collected mobile phones are recycled within the project “mobile phones for the environment”. An initiative of the German Environmental Help organization and the Telekom.
25 % of a mobile phone consists of different metals. One device contains an average of 24 mg of gold, 150 mg of silver and 9 grams of copper. Moreover small amounts of palladium and platinum. For the 100 million devices that lie in german drawers, this means a total of 24 tons of gold and 150 tons of silver that re-enter the resource-cycle. The raw-materials in one mobile phone are – depending on the modell – worth 3 to 5 euros. This revenue goes directly to the German Environmental Help organization. For environmental protection and nature conservation work.
Numerous disused mobile phones were collected at the three german Marbach locations. The equivalent and therefore donation value of the collected phones amounts to 300 euros.
Marbach’s CSR representative Birgit Schuster: “In addition to the project with the German Environmental Help organization, Marbach is collecting for the children’s hospice service of the foundation “Große Hilfe für kleine Helden” (“big help for small heroes”). That’s why a donation – equal in amount to the collected mobile phones – also goes to the children’s hospice service. We are happy that our employees support the company’s CSR drive. And that we can take responsibility for mankind and environment together.”

Marbach Werkzeugbau is currently working intensively on the topics of digitization and industry 4.0. The main focus here is on digital solutions for tools, processes and services. Within the scope of this project, Marbach has analyzed the future requirements of its customers. The results of this are the two components CONNECT|M and CONNECT|AR (Augmented Reality). CONNECT|M is a technology that intelligently connects the thermoforming tool, Marbach and the customer. CONNECT|AR is about virtual customer support via remote maintenance.
Marbach offers an extensive portfolio of dieboards. The suitable dieboard can be selected according to the requirements of the customer or the particular order. The dieboard forms the basis of a cutting-die. The contours of the packaging are first inserted into the dieboard, then the cutting and creasing rules are positioned and finally the appropriate rubber coating is applied.
Through its Die Supplies & Automation (MDS&A) division Marbach sells machines to die-makers. In addition to laser systems and water jet systems, Marbach has milling machines in its portfolio. The mgrav|2 is its most successful milling machine.
Marbach developed some time ago a special technology for reverse cutting to save make-ready time. This technology, known as the height-adjustable anvil, is very popular in the market. Until now, the use of this technology has been limited to high-tech duramar tools or corrugated board tools. But the height-adjustable anvil is now also available in a new version for standard folding box tools.
