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.
With its stripping technologies, Marbach has an extensive portfolio on the market for smooth processes and waste-free stripping. An important product, and the basic requirement for a stable stripping process, is the precision set-up aid marbapoint. The male and female strippers are precisely positioned in relation to each other. The marbapoint is therefore a simple and cost-effective way to optimize the setup process.
On the 5th of July 2019 the Family Day took place for the 6th time at Marbach. The theme was "Beach Party - it's summertime". Almost 400 employees and their families gathered on the company premises and celebrated together in bright sunshine.
Marbach is exhibiting - as in previous years - at the FachPack in Nuremberg at the end of September. For Marbach, this coming together of the packaging industry has become an established part of the exhibition year.
Marbach founded a new branch in Tianjin together with the machine manufacturer Masterwork in the summer of 2018. Cutting-dies for the Chinese folding box industry are mainly manufactured at this location. A few months later, Marbach started its new materials subsidiary in Mexico. A production facility in the USA will follow in the summer of 2019. At Marbach all signs point to expansion.
