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.
Honeycomb corrugated board is a lightweight but very stable type of material due to its honeycomb-like structure. It is mainly used for transport protection as an environmentally friendly alternative to plastic.
Die-cutting honeycomb corrugated board poses special challenges for a cutting-die. It must be very stable, resistant and robust as well as specially equipped so that it can optimally penetrate the thick material and deliver good die-cutting results. For this reason, Marbach tools for honeycomb cardboard are equipped with particularly robust serrated rules, a suitable counter plate as well as a special ejection technology.
Michael Kiesel, Sales Manager at Marbach: "Our cutting-dies for honeycomb corrugated board are characterized by their special equipment as well as the selection and quality of the materials used. The most important thing with these special tools is the optimal coordination of the individual equipment elements. We have perfected this through our many years of experience. And so, our tools are always individually matched to the customer's requirements and to the honeycomb corrugated board used. All of this leads to smooth die-cutting processes and optimum die-cutting results."
These special tools can also be used in a similar manner for die-cutting other thick materials such as door interiors, edge protectors, connectors and packaging trays.
In 2023, we will be able to look back on 100 years of company history. After this special event, the next big event for us is already waiting to happen next year: In one year – exactly on May 28, 2024 – the leading trade show of the printing and packaging industry, drupa in Düsseldorf, will finally take place again.
We are at home in the packaging industry. Almost 100 years ago, we began in Heilbronn as a 3-man business with a small workshop measuring 36 m² (4 x 9 m). Today the company has 1,600 employees worldwide at many locations around the globe. In Heilbronn alone, the total area for production and administration is 24,352 m².
As a result of this expansion, space in the existing buildings has repeatedly become cramped over the years. As a consequence, new buildings and extensions have had to be built.
In addition to our comprehensive portfolio of cutting-dies, we also offer compatible storage systems. The Marbach Die Storage System (MDSS) has been designed for packaging manufacturers seeking optimally functioning in-house logistics.
