Marbach presented its latest developments at the Expoprint in São Paulo (Brazil) from 20th to 24th March. Visitors were very curious about the solutions Marbach could offer for highest performance in die-cutting for packaging.
The Expoprint, which takes place every 4 years, is a major paper and printing trade fair in Brazil. Marbach was a co-exhibitor at the VDMA (Association of German Machine Manufacturers). At its 12 m² stand, the Heilbronn-based die-maker presented its innovative highlights from the past months.
Marketing Manager Tina Dost: "We had a wide range of products to showcase which met with great interest. Visitors were enthusiastic about the possibilities offered by the Marbach technologies. Especially with regard to performance and packaging finishing. Our visitor magnets were the height-adjustable anvil, our finishing techniques and the blanking technology marbablanker."
The reverse cutting technology is used to produce elegant opening mechanisms in packaging. Highest precision is essential. In reverse cutting, the paperboard is scored from both sides - inside and outside. With the height-adjustable anvil from Marbach, customers can not only count on optimally functioning opening mechanisms, but also save make-ready time and achieve consistent results.
Marketing manager Tina Dost: "There are many possibilities to refine packaging and enhance it for the POS. Embossing in 2D or 3D, hot foil embossing, pure edge or reverse cutting. In addition, high-quality creases or multiple creases close to each other make a packaging something very special. With our tools and our special technologies, we offer our customers the right solution for every requirement. For extraordinary packaging at the POS that is not only an optical but also a tactile experience for the consumer."
With this Marbach-developed technology, the rubbering effect along the cutting rules is replaced by steel pressers. As a result, the corrugated board is completely compressed during the die-cutting process right next to the knife. This results in very clean cuts, the formation of cutting dust and the development of angel hair is thus prevented.
The marbablanker is a light but stable blanking tool that is perfectly adapted to the customer's needs. The marbablanker is characterized by a fast and smooth blanking process and at a reasonable price.
Dost continues: "The Expoprint in São Paulo has been a very interesting trade fair with many exciting conversations for us. We will definitely be back in four years."
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.
