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.
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.
