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.
Marbach offers various solutions to ensure safe embossing of packaging. The Marbach standard already contains suitable solutions for many applications. In addition, Marbach has developed a further option ensuring even more safety in embossing.
Marbach has recently updated its handheld device for placing nicks into cutting rules. So far, this tool – that is known on the market under the name marbanick – could place a nick with a predefined width and depth into the cutting rule. With the new marbanick|2 version, width and depth of the nicks can now be varied in three steps.
Marbach produces cutting-dies for the packaging industry. But that's not all. Marbach also offers a wide variety of materials for die-makers and packaging manufacturers. In a new catalog Marbach shows the variety of its products for packaging producers. One product which stands out in Marbach's portfolio is the contour-adapted cutting plate.
Marbach signed a joint venture contract at the end of 2017 with Masterwork (MK), a Chinese manufacturer of machines and systems for the packaging industry. After completing all the necessary formalities in spring 2018, preparations for the new Marbach production location in China are currently in full swing. Production at the Tianjin plant is scheduled to start in summer 2018.
