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 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.
Marbach has been using for some time now a new rubber for rubbering cutting-dies. The name of this high-performance material is flexpower. Certified by ISEGA for use in the food industry, this rubber offers numerous advantages to operators. Marbach uses flexpower in corrugated board tools (both flat and rotary) and also sells it as raw material.
Marbach is one of the large material suppliers in Germany. Under the name Marbach Die Supplies, Marbach offers materials for packaging manufacturers that meet the requirements in the field of die-cutting. In order to support its customers even more in increasing their performance, Marbach has expanded its material portfolio.
