Marbach is currently working intensively on the topics of digitalization and industry 4.0. Marbach is also focusing on the digitalization of industrial processes. One step resulting from this project is changing invoicing from postal to digital. As of 01 August 2019, the majority of german Marbach customers will receive their invoices by email.
Simon Baumgärtner, Controlling at Marbach: "In order to be true to our motto "Packaging. Performance.You.", we will no longer send our invoices in printed form by post but electronically as of 01.08.2019. Many of our customers already receive their invoices digitally. We now also want to upgrade the remaining customers who are able to process electronic invoices. So that everyone can benefit equally from the many advantages of electronic invoicing."
Sending invoices by e-mail reduces the administrative effort involved in receiving an invoice: electronic invoices can be processed directly and do not have to be scanned first. In addition, automatic archiving and convenient searches are possible. Baumgärtner continues: "Ultimately, our customers will save time and money through the conversion. But there will also be environmental benefits."
Because invoices will no longer be sent by post, fewer resources in the form of paper will be used and mail transportation will also be eliminated. Resources will thus be conserved and the CO2 consumption that occurs during postal transport will also be avoided.
Further measures within the digitalization project will follow. This continues to be exciting development at Marbach.
Marbach has added a new blanking tool to its product range. The alublanker is, as its name suggests, made of aluminum and completely CNC-milled. One of the first customers to use the alublanker is Marbach's long-standing partner MPS in Obersulm - a company of the Consumer Packaging Business of the WestRock Group. The Obersulm site produces high-quality folding cartons for the international perfume and cosmetics industry.
Marbach has published a new whitepaper for tobacco applications on its knowledge platform, the Experience Hub.
Marbach provides solutions to ensure top performance for its customers. In order to make packaging more attractive and to visually highlight individual elements of packing, the embellishment process of embossing is often used. As an eye-catcher, it increases the impact of a package at the point of sale. This then has a sales-promoting effect for the packaged product. If the embossing process is not integrated into the die-cutting process but is carried out separately, this is known as embossing and die-cutting in two passes. This is more time-consuming than an embossing process integrated into the die-cutting process. But here, too, set-up times can be minimized.
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies (MDS) includes machines, equipment and materials for diemaking. In particular, MDS has expanded its range of manual devices in recent months. Among the most popular of these is the mcut|multi multifunctional cutting tool. It cuts rule materials quickly and without deformation. Plastika Mostar in Slovenia is already using mcut|multi and is very impressed.
