Marbach ordered a die-cutting machine of the type Brausse 1060 ER at Brausse Europe in April 2017. With it, Marbach will create a training center for internal and external trainings during the next months. Moreover, using this machine, Marbach will test innovations and even better fulfil customer requirements. After 10 weeks, the waiting time was finally over: on the 3rd of July, the new machine was delivered to Marbach in Heilbronn.
Project manager Sven Zimmermann: “The die-cutting machine arrived at Marbach securely stowed in a container. Weighing 22,000 kg, the machine was lifted into the designated building by crane.”
Since ordering the machine and in order to create the perfect conditions, preparations were running at full speed at Marbach. A storage building was completely renovated including laying a new foundation so as to meet the high static requirements when operating a die-cutting machine. Also, the appropriate infrastructure: power supply, heating, compressed air, data cables etc. had to be created.
Zimmermann continues: “We were ready with our preparations just-in-time. It couldn’t have worked out any better. Also assembling the machine was very well planned and worked smoothly. The commissioning took place directly after the machine was set up.”
Marbach is now amply able to test its tools on its own die-cutting machine. The machine is already booked out for the next months.
In the future, internal workforce training on the die-cutting machine will be an inherent feature of the Marbach training philosophy. In this way the expertise of employees can be extended continuously and new employees can be more quickly educated to become experts. Starting in 2018, the first customer trainings will take place. An extensive range of seminars concerning the topic die-cutting has been planned. These seminars can be requested at email@example.com and will be sent to registered interested parties as soon as they are available.
Marbach launched its tool marbaclean onto the market last year. Product safety and conformity to highest hygiene demands are benefits, that are attracting great interest in the market. marbacelan is ISEGA certified and therefore suitable for packaging production in the food industry – particularly for direct packaging, which has direct contact with the packaged goods.
Marbach knows the requirements of the market. Especially for manufacturing cigarette packaging where the demands on quality are high, and the packaging process has to be especially productive. With the crease bend tester, Marbach offers its customers a device with which creasing forces and folding resistance of a package can be tested precisely. For the smooth packaging process of cigarettes.
Marbach presented some time ago its technology for optically appealing visible edges in corrugated board packaging. Since then various customers are employing pure edge. One of these customers is the Sealed Air Verpackungen GmbH in Alsfeld, Germany. Sealed Air has been so convinced by this technology that in the meantime all its tools for single-wall corrugated board have been equipped with pure edge.
After the installation of a die-cutting machine at Marbach at the beginning of July, the preparations for the new training center are running at full speed at the Heilbronn-based die-maker. The official start is planned for the beginning of 2018. Marbach will then offer its customers training on the topics of die-cutting of paperboard and corrugated board. The focus will be on topics such as productivity and the significant reduction of make-ready time.
