Marbach Werkzeugbau invested in a Gabler M98 Maxx last year. This machine has in the meantime passed its test. Three tools were test-run for a US customer – all with great success.
Marbach has invested in this machine because it offers the Heilbronn-based toolmaker numerous opportunities: with this machine, match-metal tools can be extensively tested for functionality and quality before being delivered to the customer. Process reliability and productivity can also be optimized directly at Marbach without affecting the customers' production capacity.
Marbach Sales Manager Hubert Kittelmann: "The current LIVE test with genuine challenges and sophisticated products offered us the best opportunity to put all the components together through their paces. We are very happy to have the Gabler Maxx on site."
The companies Gabler and Toolvision accompanied these activities in Heilbronn and were also able to train the team of Marbach service technicians on this occasion.
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.
