Our US location in Charlotte is developing very positively. Following the start of production in 2012, Marbach America has grown into a stable revenue generator within the globally active Marbach Group. In order to be able to serve its customers even better, Marbach America has invested in a laser system of the latest generation. In March 2019 a laser system of the type mlas|compact-2 was installed at Marbach America.
The mlas|compact-2 is equipped with the latest technology in laser beam guidance. This provides the highest laser cutting precision when cutting wood and steel. The SLAB laser source delivers 2,500 watts. Integrated remote maintenance ensures optimum production reliability and machine availability for the mlas|compact-2.
Pires continues: "The use of the latest technologies is part of the continuous further development of Marbach America. This not only increases our performance, but also that of our customers. The mlas|compact-2 is the latest top technology at Marbach America, which underlines our market leadership".
Due to the great success of the US location in Charlotte, Marbach will start another location in the USA this summer: In Michigan City Marbach will open a production location from which the packaging industry in the Chicago area will be supplied with Marbach quality tools. A mlas|compact-2 will also be installed there.
Marbach has been a specialist for the production of cutting-dies for the packaging industry for many decades. In addition, the Marbach portfolio also includes tools for special technical solutions. One of which is the production of cutting-dies with particularly high cutting rules.
In May of this year, Marbach launched its new lower pin unit with high precision lower pins. This is mainly used for jobs where very small amounts of waste have to be stripped and where requirements for die-cut blanks to be waste-free are very high. With the lower pin unit, waste is stripped very safely in these areas of application. In the last months, several customers have already been using the new Marbach technology. Customer feedback has been consistently positive.
Marbach is working at full speed on various digitalization and Industry 4.0 projects.
