Marbach presented its innovations at Hispack 2018 in Barcelona. Hispack is one of the most important packaging fairs in Spain. From 8th to 11th May, Marbach presented product highlights from the past months at its 20 m² stand B290 in pavilion 2.
Marketing Manager Tina Dost: "The more than 100 visitors at our stand were able to experience different interesting product developments. As we had many innovations on display that improve the performance of our customers."
In addition to digital zone levelling, which compensates for unevenness in machines and thus results in a reduction of make-ready time when setting-up the cutting-die, Marbach presented additional technologies to the visitors. The height-adjustable anvil which saves make-ready time when reverse-cutting packaging and thereby ensuring consistent results. The lightblanker blanking tool which is easy to handle, flexible and can be quickly converted to sheet delivery. And in the field of hot foil embossing, Marbach showcased its method of archiving embossing clichés for repeat jobs with the thinplate technology. Thus saving customers the set-up time of the clichés.
This successful appearance has emphasised to Marbach the need to exhibit again at the next Hispack in 3 years time.
There are many rotary machines for die-cutting corrugated board. The machines of the Japanese machine manufacturer Mitsubishi are currently making inroads in Europe. These machines place completely new demands on the tool technology used. Marbach has met the challenge and developed tools specially designed for these machines. For maximum productivity in rotary die-cutting.
The Joint Venture between Marbach and the Chinese machine manufacturer Masterwork has begun. Since July the company has been producing in China under the name Marbach Masterwork (Tianjin) Die Cutting Tools Co. Ltd., manufacturing cutting-dies for the national market. Besides its production in Malaysia, Marbach now has a second anchor in Asia. The range includes cutting-dies, stripping and blanking tools for the Chinese cigarette and folding carton industry.
Marbach supports its customers’ performance in their production. One customer who can confirm this is Manuel Nieto, Technical Manager at Quimica Comercial in Ecuador. Marbach and Quimica Comercial have been working together for two years. With great success. And with the support of Marbach, Quimica Comercial has been able to significantly increase its productivity.
In May Marbach presented its new hand-held device for inserting nicks in cutting rules. Since then, the marbanick|2 – which is the name of the new Marbach product – has been an outstanding success. With the new Marbach hand-held device, the size of the nick can be optimally adapted to the requirements of the user. The insertion of the nicks in different thicknesses is fast, safe and controlled.
