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.
The Egyptian subsidiary Marbach celebrates its 25th anniversary. The Marbach Group was founded in 1923 as a 3-man business. To begin with it supplied mainly the domestic advertising and packaging industry. Marbach then began a process of internationalization in 1984. In 1995 Marbach started a joint venture in Egypt.
The Managing Partner of the Marbach Group, Peter Marbach, has donated an internal bonus to the Wartberg School.
Marbach has developed a new technology for full sheet delivery. Marbach customer Westrock has been using the Marbach universal sheet delivery system for a few months now and is highly impressed by the Marbach solution.
