Marbach is known for its solutions designed to meet all requirements. For applications in the pharmaceutical sector, Marbach has specific tools in its portfolio that have been specially designed for this field of application.
The requirements in the pharmaceutical sector are diverse. Buzzwords such as precision, hygiene and clean room reveal the essential character of pharmaceutical tools. They are used for active ingredient patches, tablet blisters, surgical accessories, labels or outer packaging for wet patches. All areas in which hygiene and precision are vitally important.
Uwe Murrweiss, Production Manager at Marbach: "For the pharmaceutical sector, we offer tools with solid steel parts, wire-eroded dieboards or PMMA tools, depending on requirements. All tool types possess advantages and are utilized depending on customer requirements. If necessary, several technologies can be combined. For maximum performance in the production of medical products."
Marbach has an internal metal processing department with its own tool shop. Machining techniques such as milling, eroding, coordinate grinding and round processing can be carried out quickly and flexibly.
Compared to conventional rotary or fully milled tools, Marbach special tools are characterized by fast delivery times and hygiene. Marbach's solutions are also unbeatable in price when directly compared.
Another advantage: Marbach has extensive know-how in pharmaceutical tools. For example, Marbach uses special measuring methods to calculate the correct active ingredient area for active ingredient patches and so can manufacture the tool in exactly the right size. Marbach can measure the tools produced, optimize them and use, if necessary, die-cut samples with the customer's own material. This ensures that customers receive their tools in perfect condition and ready-to-use. Very quick sampling is also possible at Marbach.
Murrweiss continues: "An additional advantage of our tools for the customer is that they are very durable. Knives can be exchanged several times and revisions can be carried out quickly and reliably. This is usually the optimal solution for our customers, as a complete validation of a new tool would otherwise be necessary, which is both time-consuming and costly. With a reworked tool, this complete validation is no longer necessary and a short inspection is adequate."
The Marbach-Pharma tools are manufactured by the technical specialists of the Heilbronn-based die-manufacturer.
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.
Marbach has published a new whitepaper for tobacco applications on its knowledge platform, the Experience Hub.
Marbach provides solutions to ensure top performance for its customers. In order to make packaging more attractive and to visually highlight individual elements of packing, the embellishment process of embossing is often used. As an eye-catcher, it increases the impact of a package at the point of sale. This then has a sales-promoting effect for the packaged product. If the embossing process is not integrated into the die-cutting process but is carried out separately, this is known as embossing and die-cutting in two passes. This is more time-consuming than an embossing process integrated into the die-cutting process. But here, too, set-up times can be minimized.
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies (MDS) includes machines, equipment and materials for diemaking. In particular, MDS has expanded its range of manual devices in recent months. Among the most popular of these is the mcut|multi multifunctional cutting tool. It cuts rule materials quickly and without deformation. Plastika Mostar in Slovenia is already using mcut|multi and is very impressed.
