The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies (MDS) includes machines, equipment as well as materials for diemaking. One of the most important materials for the production of cutting dies are cutting rules made of steel rule. These form the heart of every cutting-die.
André Angermeir, Sales Manager Marbach Die Supplies: "We have a very wide range of quality cutting rules in our portfolio. All of them were originally designed for use in our in-house diemaking department and have proven themselves over the years. We have the right rule for every requirement. We are pleased to be able to supply our customers with these diverse cutting rule materials for their own die production."
The exceptional thing about the Marbach rules: they stand for highest productivity in the cutting-die production. They are characterized by excellent bending behavior, easy assembly and best fitting accuracy. Packaging manufacturers are enthusiastic about the durability and perfect die-cutting or creasing behavior of the Marbach rules.
Angermeir continues: "We have cutting rules in a wide variety of categories, for small and large runs, edge-hardened or not. The special mpower rule is extremely popular, especially for long runs: its rounded cutting tip makes it particularly resilient and enables shorter make-ready times for the user. This ensures efficiency in packaging production and long service lives. The mpower rule avoids angel hair and ensures a clear cut. All these features make the mpower cutting rule a special standard in our industry."
In the area of edge-hardened rules, mhard and mhard|+ are popular choices. The mhard is particularly suitable for die-cutting various paperboard materials and features a long service life. Angermeir: "The tolerances of the mhard cutting rules are very low. It can be used to produce cutting-dies highly efficiently. The mhard is the standard rule for all normal requirements. We offer the mhard rule in various heights between 23.8 and 50 mm."
The new mhard|+, on the other hand, is even more hardened than the mhard. It is specially designed for demanding die-cutting with a sharp cutting tip and is therefore particularly suitable for laminated materials as well as plastics. Angermeir: "Our customers are convinced by both the service life and the price of this special rule."
In 1923, the Marbach company began as a 3-man workshop in Heilbronn, Baden-Württemberg. 100 years later, the small craftsman business has become a global market leader operating worldwide. Today, the Marbach Group, with its 1,600 employees around the world, is a key partner for the global packaging industry.
Such a long company history cannot be taken for granted – in Germany only a little more than 1% of the companies ever reach 100 years. The fact that we have managed to achieve this, is due to many different factors.
Our story reads like an exciting novel.
In addition to materials for packaging manufacturers, our division Marbach Die Supplies also supplies equipment for the die-cutting process. This includes two mobile workbenches mbench|smart and mbench|pro. These are distinguished by their flexible application possibilities.
The workbenches in the mbench series are not only equipped with smooth-running heavy-duty wheels for flexible use, but also offer an ideal work surface, storage space for tools and materials, as well as the option of fitting them with suitable hand tools. This means that tools can be repaired and processed in a minimum of space.
With the Marbach lower pin unit, we have a tool on the market that is mainly used for jobs where the requirements for waste-free die-cut blanks are very high. This is because waste is stripped in an especially reliable way with the lower pin unit in these applications.
Lower pin units are used in the stripping station of a die-cutting machine. They are particularly useful when very small waste parts have to be stripped and when maximum reliability is required during stripping.
For us, an eventful but also successful year is coming to an end. Right at the beginning of the year, the war in Ukraine caused market turbulence and triggered a procurement crisis. We met these challenges with good planning and inventory management.
For many years now, we have traditionally donated 10,000 € to aid projects at Christmas under the motto "Donations instead of gifts". This year, due to the difficult situation in Ukraine, the management of Marbach decided to donate the entire amount to aid projects in connection with the war in Ukraine.
