Marbach has added a new blanking tool to its product range. The alublanker is, as its name suggests, made of aluminum and completely CNC-milled. One of the first customers to use the alublanker is Marbach's long-standing partner MPS in Obersulm - a company of the Consumer Packaging Business of the WestRock Group. The Obersulm site produces high-quality folding cartons for the international perfume and cosmetics industry.
Eugen Schneider, Die-Cutting Manager at WestRock Obersulm: "We produced the first order with the new alublanker from Marbach. The performance achieved with it has fully convinced our machine operators. The alublanker is very precise, very light and can be easily set-up by just one operator. Despite its low weight, it is solid and the passage of the waste grid has also been very stable. We will definitely continue to use the new alublanker in the future."
The Marbach alublanker is completely made of one piece and produced in one milling operation. The design in aluminum and the associated low weight means optimized handling of the female blanking tools. The one-man operation saves time and personnel costs.
In addition, the high precision of the alublanker ensures perfect stacking, reduced set-up times, high packaging quality with no marks at all, as well as high machine speeds. For smooth production processes and maximum performance in the blanking station.
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.
