Marbach has continuously expanded its services in the past year. The newest member of the Marbach service family is the Marbach Performance Boost package. By which, Marbach supports its consulting service which makes its own process know-how available to its customers and thereby significantly increasing their productivity during the die-cutting process.
In recent years, Marbach has discovered that customers want more from their tool suppliers than just functioning cutting-dies. Topics that came up repeatedly were training, assistance with packaging development or process support. Marbach has taken these customer wishes into account: with the opening of the Marbach Academy. It is now possible to offer various packaging design services and to create the Performance Boost package, which analyzes the processes of Marbach customers and makes suggestions for optimization.
Jan Brunner, Head of Business Development at Marbach: "In concrete terms, you have to imagine it this way: one of our experienced application engineers visits the customer for an initial analysis. He analyzes the customer's individual infrastructure, looks at the tools used, the machinery as well as the set-up and production processes. After the analysis, the process is evaluated and the optimization potential identified. On the basis of this, an individual catalog of actions is developed for each customer. By implementing these measures, the customer can optimize their processes and thus increase their performance. If desired, our application engineer can then support the customer in the implementation phase."
The aim of the Marbach Performance Boost package is to support customers by helping them increase their die-cutting productivity. As a result they benefit from more output, more flexibility in their production and ultimately from an increase in their profits. In some instances it has been possible to increase net output per hour by up to 30 %.
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.
