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 has expanded its packaging services step by step over the last few months. Customers who have a packaging sample and need the corresponding CAD data for it, can have it created by Marbach and technically checked at the same time. This allows packaging manufacturers to concentrate fully on their core competencies.
Marbach has been on an expansion course for years. In autumn, Marbach will open its new location in Michigan City, Indiana. The newly created facility in Michigan City will complement Marbach America's current resources at the Marbach site in Charlotte, NC. Preparations to open the new Marbach office are already in full swing.
Marbach Werkzeugbau is looking forward to the upcoming K fair in Düsseldorf. This will take place from 16 to 23 October 2019. Marbach will be represented with a 94 m² stand and will present its new products to the visitors of this important plastics fair.
Marbach will take part in the Night of Apprenticeship in Heilbronn on the 26th of September 2019. On this day young people will be able to experience Marbach under the motto "Pack the world. With an apprenticeship at Marbach." Potential apprentices will be able to inform themselves about apprenticeships and studies offered at Marbach and also get to know the company.
