Marbach Werkzeugbau (tool manufacturing) offers not only match-metal thermoforming tools but also steel-rule tools. These tools are manufactured by the Marbach affiliated company, which has been producing cutting-dies for the packaging industry since 1923. As an innovation leader, Marbach also relies on special materials that increase customer performance.
A technician of Marbach customer Grupo Phoenix from Dublin, USA reports: "By using Silverline cutting rules from Marbach, we have not only doubled the service life of our steel-rule tools, but - what's even more important for our customers - significantly improved our product quality. We are very happy with Silverline from Marbach and will use only this cutting rule in the future".
This example shows which synergies a corporate group like Marbach can employ to increase the performance of its customers. Marbach Sales Manager Hubert Kittelmann: "It is great for us that we can fall back on the know-how of our die-cutting affiliate with almost 100 years of experience in this area. We are of course pleased that our customers appreciate this extraordinary Marbach expertise."
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.
