We are known for our requirement-oriented solutions. For applications in medical technology, we have special tools in our portfolio which have been designed specifically for this purpose.
The demands on cutting-dies for medical technology are very diverse: Not only precision plays a significant role. Topics such as hygiene and clean room also indicate how demanding the requirements in the medical sector are.
Michael Kiesel, Sales Manager at Marbach: "Our special tools for medical technology are used in many different applications, producing active substance patches, tablet blisters, surgical accessories, labels or outer packaging for moist plasters. These are all areas where hygiene and precision are essential."
We use tools with solid steel parts, wire-eroded base plates or PMMA tools for medical technology. In some cases, several technologies are combined. This always depends on the specific customer requirements. We have an internal metalworking department with our own tool manufacturing, machining techniques such as milling, eroding, coordinate grinding and round machining can be carried out quickly and flexibly.
With decades of experience in the cutting-die production for medical technology, Marbach possesses extensive know-how. For example, special measuring methods are used to calculate the correct active substance area for active substance patches and to produce the tool in exactly the right size. We measure the produced tools, optimize them and, if required, make sample die-cuts with your material. This ensures that you receive your tool in the optimal design and ready-to-use. Speedy sampling is also possible at Marbach.
Kiesel continues: "Compared to conventional rotary or fully milled tools, our tools for medical technology can be delivered very quickly and meet the highest hygienic requirements. In terms of direct price comparison, our solutions are also unbeatable. An additional advantage of our tools is that they are very durable. Blades can be replaced several times, and revision can be carried out quickly and reliably. This is an optimal solution for our customers, because with a new tool, a complete validation is necessary, which is time-consuming and costly. With a reworked tool, this complete validation is not necessary and a short inspection is sufficient."
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.
