With our stripping technologies, we offer an extensive portfolio on the market for smooth processes and waste-free stripping. An important product, which is the basic requirement for a stable stripping process, is the precision set-up aid: marbapoint. It is used to position the upper and lower stripping parts with precision in relation to each other. The marbapoint is thus a simple and cost-effective way of optimizing the set-up process. As of now, a special magnetic holder is available for the marbapoint, which can be attached directly to the die-cutting machine.
Marbach industry manager Bernhard Reisser: "Those of our customers who use the marbapoint are enthusiastic about the shorter set-up times, the easy handling and the increased safety of their stripping process. With our new magnetic holder, the marbapoint can now also be kept perfectly organized. Machine operators can decide for themselves the best place to attach it to the die-cutting machine."
To ensure that the stripping process runs optimally during packaging production, the die-cutting sheet and the upper and lower stripping parts have to be positioned precisely in relation to each other. If this is not done, process errors will occur.
Reisser continues: "The conventional set-up of a stripping tool is quite complicated and time-consuming. But not with our marbapoint. Because it makes it very easy to precisely position the male stripper in relation to the female stripper. It can be simply removed from the magnetic holder, inserted into a socket located in the upper part of the tool, and then switched on. A specially calibrated laser light directed at a marking cross on the lower part shows the operator the optimum position of the male stripper in relation to the female stripper. This is done quickly and easily. Our customers not only save time during set-up, but also lay the foundation for an optimal stripping process with maximum productivity and zero waste. After use, the marbapoint can simply be put back into the magnetic holder ready for its next use."
Due to the time saved during set-up and the increase in process reliability, productivity during stripping increases. As a result, the purchase of a marbapoint pays for itself within a very short time.
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.
