Marbach has launched a new, groundbreaking system solution under the name CONNECT|M. With this, Marbach has achieved the transformation of a previously and largely analog process into a digital one. This offers completely new possibilities to the user. CONNECT|M provides cloud-based, digital connection of the cutting-die, the die-cutting machine and the user. The result is efficient die management in packaging production and key performance indicators at the touch of a button.
Connect|M is a special, newly developed system solution that combines web-based software with various hardware components. Cameras, sensors and QR codes provide a connection between the tool, the die-cutting machine and the user in the production of a packaging manufacturer. This digital connection enables performance tracking and efficient tool management. The result is not only structured and simplified documentation of die information, but also the determining of key indicators for greater efficiency in packaging production. This includes automated reporting of changes in tool performance. The key indicators determined are used to identify trends at an early stage and reveal potential: the perfect basis for decisions relating to the die-cutting process and for maximum transparency in packaging production.

In 1923, the Marbach company began as a 3-man workshop in Heilbronn, Baden-Württemberg. 100 years later, the small craftsman business has become a global market leader operating worldwide. Today, the Marbach Group, with its 1,600 employees around the world, is a key partner for the global packaging industry.
Such a long company history cannot be taken for granted – in Germany only a little more than 1% of the companies ever reach 100 years. The fact that we have managed to achieve this, is due to many different factors.
Our story reads like an exciting novel.
In addition to materials for packaging manufacturers, our division Marbach Die Supplies also supplies equipment for the die-cutting process. This includes two mobile workbenches mbench|smart and mbench|pro. These are distinguished by their flexible application possibilities.
The workbenches in the mbench series are not only equipped with smooth-running heavy-duty wheels for flexible use, but also offer an ideal work surface, storage space for tools and materials, as well as the option of fitting them with suitable hand tools. This means that tools can be repaired and processed in a minimum of space.
With the Marbach lower pin unit, we have a tool on the market that is mainly used for jobs where the requirements for waste-free die-cut blanks are very high. This is because waste is stripped in an especially reliable way with the lower pin unit in these applications.
Lower pin units are used in the stripping station of a die-cutting machine. They are particularly useful when very small waste parts have to be stripped and when maximum reliability is required during stripping.
For us, an eventful but also successful year is coming to an end. Right at the beginning of the year, the war in Ukraine caused market turbulence and triggered a procurement crisis. We met these challenges with good planning and inventory management.
For many years now, we have traditionally donated 10,000 € to aid projects at Christmas under the motto "Donations instead of gifts". This year, due to the difficult situation in Ukraine, the management of Marbach decided to donate the entire amount to aid projects in connection with the war in Ukraine.
