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.
Dominic Fischer, Production Manager at Marbach in China: "A lot has happened at Marbach in recent months. At our new location in China, we have already conducted several training sessions with our chinese customers. The training courses have been very popular because of their practical relevance and the competence of the trainers. The next customer training has already been planned for the summer."
In addition, Marbach expanded its local portfolio in January 2019 and now also produces embossing plates in China. This means that customers in China can be supplied even faster with suitable tools. Investment has also been made in rule processing machines and blanking technology.
Fischer continues: "The local requirements in China are somewhat different from those in other countries. For this reason, we are currently adapting our technologies to market requirements in China. We are currently in a process of development."
Customers in China greatly appreciate Marbach technologies. This is because local tools often result in lower performance. In addition, set-up times are significantly longer than with Marbach tools.
Marbach has recently extended its portfolio. From now on Marbach will also produce high-precision steel rule dies for cold cut packaging. In the food industry these are mainly used for sliced sausage and cheese.
Marbach offers a special storage system for cutting-dies with its aptly named Marbach Die Storage System (MDSS). The MDSS is available for flat cutting-die packages of up to 2,000 mm format and recently, also for rotary dies up to a diameter of 690mm.
Marbach Die Supplies & Automation has hit the nail on the head with its mlas|compact-2 laser system. It combines speed, cutting quality and user-friendliness in one single machine.
