Marbach is waiting for FachPack 2018 to start. On September 25, this important meeting place for the packaging industry will open its doors. More than 40,000 visitors are expected in Nuremberg during the three days of the fair. Marbach will present its innovations at booth 612 in hall 7. Marbach has additonally a stand at the special exhibition "Packaging in Medical Technology and Pharmacy" in Hall 3A where it will present its products for pharmaceutical manufacturers.
At FachPack Marbach will present its latest developments in the fields of corrugated board, paperboard, special technologies and labels. But in addition Marbach will take along materials for packaging manufacturers. And information will be available about its new training center, which has only recently opened.
Marbach Sales Manager Silvio Gruber: "The performance of our customers is our highest priority. That's why we will once more be presenting a colorful bouquet of innovations at FachPack that will ensure maximum performance for our customers".
Digital zone levelling
The DZL|foil has been developed to level out machine unevenness on large-format die-cutting machines, as used for corrugated board. The effect of the zone levelling technology from Marbach is that it is not necessary to carry out a zone make-ready for each individual order. Instead a once carried out DZL|foil will last for months.
Stripping tool masterstrip|plate
When waste is stripped in the die-cutting machine, a smooth production process is essential. The masterstrip|plate not only smoothes the paperboard sheet to be die-cut, but also ensures that the blanks are waste-free. It provides a stable production process and in this way the highest performance in the production of packaging.
Blanking tool marbablanker
In order to separate the individual blanks from the paperboard sheet after die-cutting and stripping, a blanking tool is required. This should separate and stack the individual blanks quickly and above all completely separate from each other. With the Marbach blanking technology marbablanker the customers will receive a tool individually adapted to their needs, as well as a smoothly running blanking process.
The trend towards more refined packaging finishing is increasing. Marbach supplies the appropriate refinement techniques for sales-boosting packaging at the point of sale. In addition to pure edge for clean visible edges in corrugated board packaging, these include 2D and 3D embossing in various designs in addition to the hotfoil embossing technologies marbafoil and thinplate. But the reverse cutting technology for beautiful tear-open mechanisms also ensures flawless packaging. The new height-adjustable anvil developed by Marbach is used to make it easier for the operator to set-up the tool optimally and to save time during set-up.
Silvio Gruber continues: "This year we can not only welcome our customers at our main stand, but also at the special exhibition dealing with the fields of medicine and pharmaceuticals. At this information stand we will mainly inform our customers about hygiene and braille embossing. We see hygiene as a topic of the future. Some of our customers from the medical sector are already very well positioned in the market and rely on our special hygienic cutting-dies. Medical products such as plasters or bandages are die-cut with tools where hygiene is a top priority. For all customers to whom this topic is important, we have put together a package in which we offer the right solution for every requirement. The customers can decide individually whether they want to use the complete hygiene package or only components from it. This includes issues such as securing tool components, the use of special materials or additional cleaning routines in the production process. And optionally a disinfection of the tool package before delivery to the customer."
Marbach warmly invites all interested parties to its booth 612 in hall 7 and is looking forward to a large number of visitors.
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.
