make-ready time reduction
The Marbach Performance Package is a special service package to increase performance "all around the diecutting process". The packaging manufacturers are under enormous cost pressure. They have to produce more and more efficiently in order to survive in the market. The time pressure is also growing, and this with ever smaller quantities, which means that the machines have to be re-tooled more and more often. All this means that short set-up times are becoming increasingly important.
The Performance Package consists of the 5 modules: Analysis & Planning, Machine Upgrades, Tool technology, Machine Environment and Training. First, the set-up process at the packaging manufacturer is filmed from different perspectives. In this way, the processes are objectively recorded. Then, the set-up process is sequenced and analyzed with the help of special video editing software and the savings potential is calculated in minute detail. In addition, the experienced Marbach application technicians inspect the machine and its environment. This way, they can identify correlations and work out causes for inefficient setups. The results are then presented and discussed.
