Marbach is known for its diverse product range. In addition to cutting-dies for packaging, Marbach also produces tools for special technical solutions. The technical department at Marbach, which specializes in such solutions, is responsible for developing the corresponding tools.
Marbach Sales Manager Michael Kiesel: "When die-cutting thermoformed items, trays for electronic parts or medical components, displays and even foam, very special demands are placed on the cutting-die. In such cases it is not enough to equip the tool with the usual 23.8 mm cutting rules. Here the cutting knives must be significantly higher. This height depends on the material to be die-cut. We at Marbach can easily process heights of up to 100 mm."
What characterizes Marbach tools is their high precision and special processing. Besides the use of multiplex wood as dieboards, aluminum can also be used for more exacting requirements. The joints of the cutting rules can be laser-welded, spot-welded or conventionally welded, depending on the customer's requirements.
Kiesel continues: "We use special bending equipment to process the cutting rules. This makes it possible to have contours with many bends and few joints."
However, the use of high-cutting knives is only a part of the overall competence of the technical department. In addition, there are numerous other special solutions that Marbach implements for its customers. One example is steel-rule technology for the production of thermoformed cups. In this way Marbach offers numerous die-cutting solutions. Not only with packaging. But for a wide variety of special technical solutions.
Marbach supplies not only cutting-dies, but also quality control devices for testing the creasing values of packaging blanks. With devices such as the crease bend tester, not only a smooth packaging process can be ensured, but also the quality of the produced packaging.
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.
