We have recently presented our digital system solution for more digitalization in the die-cutting process. The enormous interest in the Marbach solution, only goes to prove that digitalization is of great concern to the packaging market.
CONNECT|M Project Manager Tim Wolber: "Some of our customers are already successfully using CONNECT|M and are enthusiastic about the many possibilities this solution offers them. So, further CONNECT|M projects and inquiries are already in the pipeline. The topic of automatic status change is of special importance for many of our customers and prospects."
With CONNECT|M's status recording, the status of die-cutting machine is automatically recorded, and documents whether the machine is currently in production, in set-up, in standby or in stop mode.
Wolber continues: "These figures, which are automatically recorded by the system, are worth their weight in gold for our customers. This is because they form the basis for an analysis that is used to define measures which will lead to improved die-cutting performance. In this way, set-up times and machine stops can be minimized, and thus production times increased. CONNECT|M therefore not only ensures more transparency in the die-cutting process, but also more productivity in packaging production."

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.
