The sixth technology forum of the European Diemakers Association (ESU) took place between the 15th and 16th of September in Luxembourg. Marbach was on-site as an exhibitor to present its newest innovations with its two divisions Automation & Service and Die Supplies.
On both days, many visitors from the industry found their way to Luxembourg. At its booth, Marbach exhibited its laser machines mlas|rot-linear and mlas|smart as well as the waterjet machine mjet|2. These Marbach machines were the objects of great interest for the visitors. Numerous inquiries were made.
In the area of materials, Marbach presented its new highspeed rubber flexpower. This was one of the major attractions at the Marbach booth and was of key interest to many of the visitors. Flexpower rubber is now available as plate goods. It can be applied to flat as well as rotary cutting-dies for corrugated board. Director Business Development, Jan Brunner: “The rubbering with flexpower provides best die-cutting performance. With its special technical features, flexpower allows for high die-cutting quality and smooth production processes with high machine speeds. Its durability makes it indispensable for high quantities. In rotary die-cutting, flexpower improves the waste-guidance and therefore secures a fast and efficient stripping.”
Marbach has once more shown its innovative power with machines and materials for die-makers at the ESU technology forum.
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.
