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 been a specialist for the production of cutting-dies for the packaging industry for many decades. In addition, the Marbach portfolio also includes tools for special technical solutions. One of which is the production of cutting-dies with particularly high cutting rules.
In May of this year, Marbach launched its new lower pin unit with high precision lower pins. This is mainly used for jobs where very small amounts of waste have to be stripped and where requirements for die-cut blanks to be waste-free are very high. With the lower pin unit, waste is stripped very safely in these areas of application. In the last months, several customers have already been using the new Marbach technology. Customer feedback has been consistently positive.
Marbach is working at full speed on various digitalization and Industry 4.0 projects.
