Marbach ordered a die-cutting machine of the type Brausse 1060 ER at Brausse Europe in April 2017. With it, Marbach will create a training center for internal and external trainings during the next months. Moreover, using this machine, Marbach will test innovations and even better fulfil customer requirements. After 10 weeks, the waiting time was finally over: on the 3rd of July, the new machine was delivered to Marbach in Heilbronn.
Project manager Sven Zimmermann: “The die-cutting machine arrived at Marbach securely stowed in a container. Weighing 22,000 kg, the machine was lifted into the designated building by crane.”
Since ordering the machine and in order to create the perfect conditions, preparations were running at full speed at Marbach. A storage building was completely renovated including laying a new foundation so as to meet the high static requirements when operating a die-cutting machine. Also, the appropriate infrastructure: power supply, heating, compressed air, data cables etc. had to be created.
Zimmermann continues: “We were ready with our preparations just-in-time. It couldn’t have worked out any better. Also assembling the machine was very well planned and worked smoothly. The commissioning took place directly after the machine was set up.”
Marbach is now amply able to test its tools on its own die-cutting machine. The machine is already booked out for the next months.
In the future, internal workforce training on the die-cutting machine will be an inherent feature of the Marbach training philosophy. In this way the expertise of employees can be extended continuously and new employees can be more quickly educated to become experts. Starting in 2018, the first customer trainings will take place. An extensive range of seminars concerning the topic die-cutting has been planned. These seminars can be requested at firstname.lastname@example.org and will be sent to registered interested parties as soon as they are available.
Marbach recently launched a new system under the name Embossing Register System IV. This allows embossing plates to be set up quickly and easily on embossing dies. With the Marbach system, users can save time when setting up the embossing dies and thus reduce machine downtimes.
Marbach has made a successful start to the new year with its Marbach Academy. In the first quarter of 2019, there were training courses on the subjects of paperboard and cigarette packaging as well as several individual training courses for customers.
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.
Marbach is on course for expansion. After Marbach has founded subsidiaries in the USA, Malaysia, China and Mexico in the recent years, a second location in the USA will follow this summer. Since 2012 Marbach is already represented with a production site in Charlotte, North Carolina.
