The Marbach Group supplies under the name Marbach Automation & Service machines and devices to cutting-die manufacturers. Marbach has planned also in 2017 to extend this company branch.
Sales Director Samuel Vial: “We supply all our subsidiaries and partners with machines and devices. But many cutting-die manufacturers belong to our customers.” This fact is not surprising considering that Marbach uses its machines and equipment daily in its own production. For this reason Marbach machines have been perfected and buyers can be sure to get technology that is working reliably and thus ensuring high performance.
Vial continues: “In 2017, we will focus on our laser, waterjet and milling machines. We have partially modified them and developed additional features that not only make work easier for the operator but also significantly increase efficiency. We are looking forward to an exciting year in 2017.”
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.
Through its Die Supplies & Automation (MDS&A) division Marbach sells machines to die-makers. In addition to laser systems and water jet systems, Marbach has milling machines in its portfolio. The mgrav|2 is its most successful milling machine.
