Marbach Werkzeugbau has invested in two new milling machines to optimize its production. With the type KX30 machines from the Huron company, Marbach will significantly increase its flexibility in producing thermoforming and rotary tools.
Lars Schwarzmannseder, Production Manager at Marbach: "We have already been using a Huron machine in rotary cutting-die manufacturing for more than 20 years. A second followed a few years ago. These two machines offer us not only fantastic uptime, but also exceptional long-term accuracy. With Huron, we know what we get. The machine is delivered and installed. And then it runs. And runs. And runs."
This is exactly why Marbach has again chosen Huron when selecting its two new machines. One of the new machines will be used in rotary cutting-die production and completes existing plant. The second machine will be used in thermoforming tool manufacturing.
Schwarzmannseder continues: "With the two new machines we are increasing our flexibility enormously. Our goal is to cover a large number of manufacturing possibilities with the new Huron machines. This will allow us to relieve our highly specialized production machines during peak periods and to transfer various parts to Huron machines".
An improvement in flexibility that will further increase Marbach's delivery performance in the future.
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.
