Marbach presented its innovations at Hispack 2018 in Barcelona. Hispack is one of the most important packaging fairs in Spain. From 8th to 11th May, Marbach presented product highlights from the past months at its 20 m² stand B290 in pavilion 2.
Marketing Manager Tina Dost: "The more than 100 visitors at our stand were able to experience different interesting product developments. As we had many innovations on display that improve the performance of our customers."
In addition to digital zone levelling, which compensates for unevenness in machines and thus results in a reduction of make-ready time when setting-up the cutting-die, Marbach presented additional technologies to the visitors. The height-adjustable anvil which saves make-ready time when reverse-cutting packaging and thereby ensuring consistent results. The lightblanker blanking tool which is easy to handle, flexible and can be quickly converted to sheet delivery. And in the field of hot foil embossing, Marbach showcased its method of archiving embossing clichés for repeat jobs with the thinplate technology. Thus saving customers the set-up time of the clichés.
This successful appearance has emphasised to Marbach the need to exhibit again at the next Hispack in 3 years time.
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.
