The sixth technology forum of the European Diemakers Association (ESU) took place between the 15th and 16th of September in Luxembourg. Marbach was on-site as an exhibitor to present its newest innovations with its two divisions Automation & Service and Die Supplies.
On both days, many visitors from the industry found their way to Luxembourg. At its booth, Marbach exhibited its laser machines mlas|rot-linear and mlas|smart as well as the waterjet machine mjet|2. These Marbach machines were the objects of great interest for the visitors. Numerous inquiries were made.
In the area of materials, Marbach presented its new highspeed rubber flexpower. This was one of the major attractions at the Marbach booth and was of key interest to many of the visitors. Flexpower rubber is now available as plate goods. It can be applied to flat as well as rotary cutting-dies for corrugated board. Marco Kraiss, Head of the division Marbach Die Supplies: “The rubbering with flexpower provides best die-cutting performance. With its special technical features, flexpower allows for high die-cutting quality and smooth production processes with high machine speeds. Its durability makes it indispensable for high quantities. In rotary die-cutting, flexpower improves the waste-guidance and therefore secures a fast and efficient stripping.”
Marbach has once more shown its innovative power with machines and materials for die-makers at the ESU technology forum.
Marbach has recently published its new materials catalog for packaging manufacturers. Since then, many customers have not only requested the catalog, but also ordered materials for their everyday requirements. And they are pleased that the purchasing process has been simplified for them.
Marbach will soon start its joint venture Marbach Masterwork (Tianjin) Cutting Tools Co Ltd. in China. As of July, Marbach will have a further production site in Asia in addition to its production in Malaysia. The range includes cutting-dies, stripping and blanking tools for the Chinese tobacco and folding carton industry.
How time flies! Only 2 more years - and drupa in Düsseldorf will open its doors. Marbach has not only signed up, but has already started planning intensively.
Marbach will be present, with a stand at the IHK education fair in 2018 – as in previous years. This will take place from 28th to 30th June at the redblue center in Heilbronn. At the stand Marbach has a roller press with which a multi-book - a kind of school organizer - is die-cut, which the visitors can take with them immediately. Marbach also has a surprise in store for the visitors, but this is still top secret at the moment.
