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 was recently visited by its customer Å&R Carton Lund AB for an audit. Å&R Carton looked closely at Marbach from a number of viewpoints and certified Marbach with a very good performance.
With its marbanick|2 for paperboard tools, Marbach has brought a hand tool onto the market that convinces users with its flexibility and simplicity. Since its introduction in May 2018, Marbach has sold almost 200 of these hand-held devices.
Marbach expands its Die Supplies & Automation division. From 01 February 2019, André Angermeir joins the Marbach team as the new Sales Manager. With Angermeir, Marbach has been able to gain an industry insider with a wealth of experience in the world of cutting-dies.
Marbach expands further. After having opened die production facilities in the USA, Malaysia and China in the past years, Marbach will open a Marbach Die Supplies subsidiary in Mexico in January. From here Marbach will supply materials to Mexican and North American die and packaging manufacturers. In addition, training in the application of technologies will be offered. Marbach's goal is to support the Mexican market in its further development.
