Marbach is known for best tool performance. The Heilbronn based cutting-die manufacturer goes even further. With its new development. The digital zone levelling. It compensates and neutralizes wear and production caused disparities in the die-cutting machine.
Jan Brunner, Head of business development at Marbach: “Every die-cutting machine is subject to wear and tear in the daily production process. That’s why previously it was necessary to set-up all worn-out areas with make-ready tape. For every single tool. This significantly increased costs. Time. And money. Because the machine wasn’t working. Digital zone levelling makes this process much more efficient. There needs to be only one zone levelling. This lasts for the next months. And for the other tools that are placed in the machine.”
But how does digital zone levelling work? The operator makes an impression of the machine using a standardized process. With this, Marbach produces a new, modified vetronite plate for the make-ready sheet. Individually for every machine. It compensates machine based height tolerances. So you need no area make-ready for every single tool.
Together with the Marbach innovations magic sheet and mpower+, digital zone levelling almost completely eliminates make-ready time. For highest performance in packaging production.
Marbach was recently visited by its customer Å&R Carton Lund AB for an audit. Å&R Carton looked closely at Marbach from a number of viewpoints and certified Marbach with a very good performance.
With its marbanick|2 for paperboard tools, Marbach has brought a hand tool onto the market that convinces users with its flexibility and simplicity. Since its introduction in May 2018, Marbach has sold almost 200 of these hand-held devices.
Marbach expands its Die Supplies & Automation division. From 01 February 2019, André Angermeir joins the Marbach team as the new Sales Manager. With Angermeir, Marbach has been able to gain an industry insider with a wealth of experience in the world of cutting-dies.
Marbach expands further. After having opened die production facilities in the USA, Malaysia and China in the past years, Marbach will open a Marbach Die Supplies subsidiary in Mexico in January. From here Marbach will supply materials to Mexican and North American die and packaging manufacturers. In addition, training in the application of technologies will be offered. Marbach's goal is to support the Mexican market in its further development.
