We are not only a specialist for tools and services centered on packaging production, but also supply systems for the storage of die packages. One of our satisfied customers who have installed a Marbach storage system in their company is Udo Zier GmbH in Furtwangen (Germany).
Carsten Zier, Managing Director of Udo Zier GmbH: "Before installing Marbach's MDSS, we had stored our tools in two-storey heavy-duty racks with wooden partitions between the tools, there were no cassettes for the individual tool sets. Using this form of storage we increasingly reached our limits. The available storage space was simply no longer sufficient. But that was not all: we not only wanted a storage system that would offer us more space and make optimal use of the available space. It also had to offer us other advantages, such as simple, safe and complete removal of the tool packages. The stored tools should also be protected in the best possible way. So we started looking for a suitable storage system and checked out various models. In the end, we decided on the storage system from Marbach. Compared to the other suppliers, Marbach not only convinced us with good planning and advice for the optimal use of space, but also with an attractive price and fast delivery time. The cooperation with Marbach has been characterised by short ways, fast reaction times, flexibility and overall good support throughout the whole project. Until today. Since we installed the Marbach storage system, we store the complete tool package in one cassette and our search times have been reduced to a minimum. The handling of the tools is altogether much faster and easier than before. Many thanks to Marbach for the great cooperation. We unreservedly recommend the Marbach storage system. We are very satisfied with both the storage system and the cooperation with Marbach."
The MDSS storage system consists of a rack frame into which individual tool cassettes are inserted. It is complemented by suitable handling devices for removal and transport to where it is used. The MDSS has a modular design and can be configured to suit individual customer requirements. Various cassette sizes and handling systems are available for this purpose. An MDSS can be installed as a storage system directly at the die-cutting machine, or in a separate warehouse. It may consist of a few storage locations or can be a large-scale storage system with several 1,000 storage locations on several levels. The flexibility of the MDSS system also makes it easy to implement space-related special solutions.
About Udo Zier GmbH:
Udo Zier GmbH was founded in 1930 as a sawmill. Since 1959, the company has been a recognised specialist for transport packaging made of corrugated board. Together with its subsidiary, K2 Verpackungen GmbH & Co. KG, it has around 95 employees. Carsten Zier runs the family business together with his wife Claudia.
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.
