Marbach will soon officially open its new training center. Prior to this, participants of the advanced course "Corrugated board processing – flat die-cutting" from the Paper Centre Gernsbach had the opportunity to spend a day at Marbach‘s new die-cutter as part of a 3-day seminar.
The Paper Centre Gernsbach has been working with Marbach for many years. Marbach actively supports the seminars of the Paper Centre on-site with speakers from the areas of paperboard and corrugated board.
Seminar leader Holger Burkert: "When we learned that Marbach was getting its own die-cutting machine, we immediately contacted them. It is, after all, an enrichment if our training participants are not only taught theoretical knowledge, but can also experience a die-cutting machine live in action. This makes seminars even more valuable and practice-oriented. We are pleased that Marbach can provide us with this opportunity."
Twelve people from the Paper Centre came to Marbach in Heilbronn on 21st November 2017 and received a theoretical introduction to begin with. Afterwards they moved on to the die-cutting machine. There, the participants were able to witness live the setting up of an order on the die-cutter and to evaluate the results.
Burkert continues: "This first pilot event at Marbach served to show us how we could best integrate the die-cutting machine from Marbach into our seminars, which processes and what content would make sense and what can be done in the new Marbach Training Center. We have come a long way here. We are definately planning to intensify cooperation with Marbach in the corrugated board and folding box sectors."
Clearly Marbach and the Paper Centre Gernsbach will further intensify their cooperation in the future.
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.
