Marbach presented its new hand-held tool for inserting waste nicks into cutting rules back in spring. At the FachPack in Nuremberg, this device became the absolute top seller. It was possible to purchase the so-called marbanick|2 directly at the fair and numerous customers took advantage of this opportunity to upgrade and optimize their production.
When manufacturing a cutting-die, a majority of the nicks are already ground-in. Sometimes, however, it is also necessary to insert subsequent waste nicks in order to optimize and adapt the tool to the on-site conditions. This is exactly what the marbanick|2 has been designed for. With it, the size of the waste nicks can be optimally adapted to the requirements of the operator. Setting the nicks is fast, safe and controlled.
The special feature of Marbach's marbanick|2: With conventional devices available on the market, only one nick with a predefined size can be inserted into cutting rules. For differing sizes operators will need an additional device. But not so with the marbanick|2: because with the Marbach device you can be flexible and will be able to insert three different nick thicknesses with a single device.
Marbach marketing manager Tina Dost: "An unbeatable advantage for our customers. This not only provides flexibility, but also saves time, space and, of course, money because three functions are possible with one device. Above all simple handling and high flexibility are what convince our customers".
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.
Since drupa 2016 Marbach has had digital zone levelling in its portfolio. Almost 400 machines have been equipped with a DZL|plate in the past 3 years. And the number is increasing every day.
Marbach is already involved in its planning for the most important international trade fair for the printing industry: drupa 2020. And now there is only 1 year left until drupa opens its doors again. The last drupa was very special for Marbach: with the number of visitors reaching record levels. No previous drupa had more visitors at the Marbach stand than in 2016.
Marbach has continuously expanded its services in the past year. The newest member of the Marbach service family is the Marbach Performance Boost package. By which, Marbach supports its consulting service which makes its own process know-how available to its customers and thereby significantly increasing their productivity during the die-cutting process.
