Marbach supports its customers’ performance in their production. One customer who can confirm this is Manuel Nieto, Technical Manager at Quimica Comercial in Ecuador. Marbach and Quimica Comercial have been working together for two years. With great success. And with the support of Marbach, Quimica Comercial has been able to significantly increase its productivity.
Manuel Nieto: "We are very satisfied with Marbach's work. It is not only the quality of the tools that we believe to be outstanding. But also we are convinced their support, advice and service are unique."
Quimica Comercial has had positive experiences with the Marbach masterstrip|plate in the stripping tool sector. Nieto: "We use Marbach's masterstrip|plate for stripping. Even jobs with many small stripping parts run smoothly through the stripping station. Not only at high speed, but without machine stops and with very good stripping results. So not only are we enthusiastic, but our customers too."
Before cooperation with Marbach, setting-up was a very difficult process for Quimica Comercial. The make-ready times were very long, and resulted in long machine downtimes. Nieto: "By using Marbach tools, we were able to significantly reduce our make-ready times. To further increase our productivity, Marbach worked with us to analyze our processes and develop set-up time routines for us as well as training our machine operators so that we could increase our set-up efficiency even further.”
Another challenge for Quimica Comercial was a corrugated board tool for die-cutting polypropylene-coated material on a non-standard die-cutting machine. Nieto: "Here Marbach was able to develop the specifications for die-cutting this special material on our machine. This enabled us to increase machine performance by more than 40 %. An amazing result for us."
Quimica Comercial will further strengthen its cooperation with Marbach in the future in order to increase delivery performance even more for its customers.
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.
