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 has revised its hand-held tool for the insertion of nicks in cutting rules. The new marbanick|2+ is impressive with its integrated quick-change function, through which wedges of different widths can be quickly changed. In addition, its special design makes it possible to use different impact levels in one device.
Marbach has a new technology in its portfolio. The universal sheet delivery is a tool with which sheet delivery in the die-cutting machine can be extended so that the delivery of the paperboard sheets can be quickly and easily adapted to each individual job.
Marbach Werkzeugbau is currently working intensively on the topics of digitization and industry 4.0. The main focus here is on digital solutions for tools, processes and services. Within the scope of this project, Marbach has analyzed the future requirements of its customers. The results of this are the two components CONNECT|M and CONNECT|AR (Augmented Reality). CONNECT|M is a technology that intelligently connects the thermoforming tool, Marbach and the customer. CONNECT|AR is about virtual customer support via remote maintenance.
Marbach offers an extensive portfolio of dieboards. The suitable dieboard can be selected according to the requirements of the customer or the particular order. The dieboard forms the basis of a cutting-die. The contours of the packaging are first inserted into the dieboard, then the cutting and creasing rules are positioned and finally the appropriate rubber coating is applied.
