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 is already involved in its planning for the most important international trade fair for the printing industry: drupa 2020. And now there is only 1 year left until drupa opens its doors again. The last drupa was very special for Marbach: with the number of visitors reaching record levels. No previous drupa had more visitors at the Marbach stand than in 2016.
Marbach has continuously expanded its services in the past year. The newest member of the Marbach service family is the Marbach Performance Boost package. By which, Marbach supports its consulting service which makes its own process know-how available to its customers and thereby significantly increasing their productivity during the die-cutting process.
Marbach has been using for some time now a new rubber for rubbering cutting-dies. The name of this high-performance material is flexpower. Certified by ISEGA for use in the food industry, this rubber offers numerous advantages to operators. Marbach uses flexpower in corrugated board tools (both flat and rotary) and also sells it as raw material.
Marbach is one of the large material suppliers in Germany. Under the name Marbach Die Supplies, Marbach offers materials for packaging manufacturers that meet the requirements in the field of die-cutting. In order to support its customers even more in increasing their performance, Marbach has expanded its material portfolio.
