Marbach Werkzeugbau (tool manufacturing) will optimize its manufacturing supervision. Under the name Time|M, Marbach will implement a new software that will make production planning at Marbach even more efficient in the future. The introduction of the new software has been planned for autumn 2018.
Marbach Production Manager Matthias Arndt: "In the production of thermoforming tools with manufacturing times of several weeks, timing production is a great challenge. In order to improve our performance for our customers, we have decided to invest in suitable software. We are currently preparing its implementation. The project teams work together with IT and our project partner on the extensive project planning agenda".
This new software will be used in addition to Marbach's existing ERP system.
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.
