The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies (MDS) includes machines, equipment as well as materials for diemaking. However, MDS does not only supply diemakers, but also packaging manufacturers with materials for daily needs as well as equipment and machines for the diecutting environment. One of the latest additions to the portfolio are the mbench|smart and mbench|pro workbenches.
André Angermeir, Sales Manager Marbach Die Supplies: "The two workbenches of the mbench series have already aroused a lot of interest among our customers. This is because these workstations for repairs and die preparation increase the efficiency at the die-cutting machine enormously. For this purpose, we optionally also supply the respective matching manual devices."
The mbench series currently consists of two workbenches: the mbench|smart and the mbench|pro. On the combined table with an ideal work surface, storage space for tools and consumables, and the matching manual devices, repairs and other work can be carried out in a minimum of space.
Angermeir continues: "While the mbench|smart is particularly suitable for quick repairs directly on site, as it can be used flexibly in all areas of production and combines all the important equipment for die repair at one workstation, the mbench|pro is the ideal solution for tool preparation. This assembly table is used, for example, to check whether the rubbering is still properly in place or whether knives need to be replaced."
The mbench|smart can be optionally equipped with the mcut|multi multifunction device for cutting to length, notching and lip cutting of cutting rules as well as the mbend manual bender. For the mbend, three specially prepared bending sets are available. The two devices are also suitable for use with the big brother mbench|pro.
Angermeir: "The mbench|smart positioned close to the machine saves valuable time. This investment pays off quickly. The mbench|pro is usually equipped with the same devices as the mbench|smart. In addition, the mcut|round for cutting defined radii at the end of creasing rules is a useful extension. Our team has already received many inquiries, we are very pleased that our innovations are highly acclaimed."
Marbach not only manufactures tools for flat die-cutting machines, but also for rotary die-cutting machines. For rotary die-cutting of corrugated board, the trend is towards the use of rotary machines with active stripping technology. Marbach has developed specially equipped rotary tools for this purpose, which ensure high productivity on such machines.
Marbach offers a very extensive portfolio of cutting-dies. Marbach also produces tools for die-cutting very thick materials such as honeycomb corrugated board. Such materials place very special demands on the technology used.
Silvio Gruber, who has been responsible for the corrugated board division at Marbach, has gone into well-earned retirement shortly before Christmas. Until his recent retirement, Mr. Gruber worked for Marbach in various management positions for a period of 37 years.
