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.
Special situations require special actions. In view of current events, we are intensively engaged in the question of how we can support facilities such as hospitals, nursing homes, etc., but also how we can protect our employees. In addition to door handle hooks for employees, which we manufacture ourselves at our Heilbronn site and which are already actively in use, we are currently producing special face shields which are used in hospitals.
Marbach employs 1,500 people worldwide. As an employer Marbach attaches great importance to the health of its employees. Therefore, the company decided to offer its employees attractive bicycle leasing in 2017 at its headquarter in Heilbronn. Recently the 150th bicycle has been leased from Marbach.
Marbach is known in the market for providing individual solutions. So far, manual top knives have not been part of Marbach's portfolio. However, as customer requirements for high-precision manual top knives have become more and more demanding, Marbach has intensively dealt with this topic. The result is tools manufactured in a new production process which optimally meets customer requirements for more precision.
Marbach uses numerous dieboards for its cutting-dies. Depending on the requirements of the order, suitable dieboard material is selected in coordination with the customer. For high demands on the dimensional stability and service life of a tool, the Marbach portfolio includes various dimensionally stable dieboards.
