Marbach Asia Pacific, the subsidiary of the Marbach Group in South-east asia, has recently installed a new die-cutting machine that will stay at the company for at least two years. The global manufacturer of cutting-dies can now showcase its tools in action on the Bobst Novacut 106 ER. This machine is equipped with all the important features, such as quick lock frames, 1mm plate exchange system with micrometer adjustment, and most importantly also a blanking unit.
“Automatic blanking is not very common in south east Asia and, as a result, still an interesting topic for customers in this area,” says Markus Stegmann, CEO Marbach Asia Pacific. “The new Marbach lightblanker is a light and modular blanking tool that is cost-efficient and therefore perfect for jobs that have been separated manually so far. Its base frame can stay in the machine and can be adjusted quickly each time according to the job-specific blanking grid.”
For the next two years, Bobst and Marbach customers can see live at the Marbach plant how a time-consuming manual separating process is replaced by a single, automatic, operation with the Novacut 106 ER that runs on Marbach tools. These automatic processes are not only more efficient than manual ones, but also improve the quality of the produced packaging.
Both, Bobst and Marbach will use the machine for internal and external training, demonstrations and test runs. And can show this new level of the postpress process. For the best performance. Also, special events with workshops will take place. Stegmann continues: “In March, an open house will take place at our location. This event is one of the things I particularly look forward to. With special guests. And a lot of interesting topics to discuss.
Marbach was recently visited by its customer Å&R Carton Lund AB for an audit. Å&R Carton looked closely at Marbach from a number of viewpoints and certified Marbach with a very good performance.
With its marbanick|2 for paperboard tools, Marbach has brought a hand tool onto the market that convinces users with its flexibility and simplicity. Since its introduction in May 2018, Marbach has sold almost 200 of these hand-held devices.
Marbach expands its Die Supplies & Automation division. From 01 February 2019, André Angermeir joins the Marbach team as the new Sales Manager. With Angermeir, Marbach has been able to gain an industry insider with a wealth of experience in the world of cutting-dies.
Marbach expands further. After having opened die production facilities in the USA, Malaysia and China in the past years, Marbach will open a Marbach Die Supplies subsidiary in Mexico in January. From here Marbach will supply materials to Mexican and North American die and packaging manufacturers. In addition, training in the application of technologies will be offered. Marbach's goal is to support the Mexican market in its further development.
