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 firstname.lastname@example.org and will be sent to registered interested parties as soon as they are available.
In December 2017 Marbach introduced to the market its new cleaning device for corrugated board machines: the mplaten|cleaner. Since then, more than 10 of these devices have been sold. And further orders are in the pipeline.
The National Plastics Exhibition (NPE) takes place every 3 years in Orlando. The who’s who of the global plastics industry will meet in 2018 from 7 to 11 May. As a specialist for the production of thermoforming tools, Marbach will again be exhibiting there this year and presenting its latest developments.
For some time now Marbach has been offering pure edge technology for achieving clean visible edges in corrugated board. Many customers are now using pure edge. It has been shown that this technology not only provides clean visible edges for corrugated board packaging, but is able to do much more.
Already in 2012, the Heilbronn-based die-maker Marbach had established a location in the USA with its subsidiary in Charlotte, North Carolina. This company has been constantly growing and has in the meantime established itself in the American market. For this reason, Jan Brunner, CEO Marbach America, was invited to the Heilbronn House of Commerce on the 8th March as an expert at the themed evening "Germany - USA: Relationship wise". This event, organized by the German Graduate School of Management & Law (GGS), the Kreissparkasse Heilbronn and the Chamber of Industry and Commerce Heilbronn-Franken, was about the economic and political situation in the USA and the relationship between the USA and Germany. But also about how this has changed - especially over the past year.
