Marbach was able to welcome more than 200 visitors to its 63 m² stand at the FachPack. In Nuremberg, Marbach not only informed visitors about its product innovations, but also about its extensive range of services.
Marbach sales manager Silvio Gruber: "For many years FachPack has been a very successful event for us. It has become a permanent feature in our trade fair year. On the one hand, we are able to meet our existing customers and inform them about current news, and on the other we are also able to establish many new contacts. A perfect combination. This year too, we made many exciting contacts".
Marbach presented a wided range of solutions for its customers’ performance at its stand 612 in hall 7.
In addition to the latest topics such as the new hand-held tool marbanick|2+ and the new anvil for reverse cutting, Marbach exhibited its platen cleaning device mplaten|cleaner, its digital zone levelling technology DZL|plate as well as special rotary tools with active stripping technology. In addition, Marbach could provide detailed information on its new 360° service on board.
With the hand-held tool marbanick|2+, waste nicks in cutting rules can be placed directly at customer's location. The insertion of the waste nicks is fast, safe and controlled. The highlight of the Marbach device: several strengths can be inserted with the same device.
Split height-adjustable anvil
With the split height-adjustable anvil for paperboard tools in the multiplex or greenplate version, Marbach customers can quickly and easily adjust the height of the anvils of their cutting-die when reverse cutting. Each block can be individually set-up and in this way optimally adjusted. Marbach customers benefit from reduced make-ready times, functional packaging and simple application.
With the Marbach platen cleaning device, dirt and rust are removed from the die-cutting platen and any unevenness is smoothed out. This significantly minimizes make-ready effort and reduces die-cutting pressure. The service life of the tool is thus extended and the die-cutting result is positively influenced by the clean die-cutting platen. Customers benefit from excellent performance and increased productivity in their die-cutting processes.
Digital zone levelling
The DZL|plate is a special protection plate which – individually adapted to the die-cutting machine – compensates for unevenness in the platen. It ensures that a conventional area make-ready – which previously had to be carried out for each individual job – is completely eliminated. The result: significantly reduced make-ready times for each and every job.
Rotary tools with active stripping technology
More and more rotary die-cutting machines are being used in which tools are fitted with active stripping technology. Marbach has developed special tools especially for these machines. For maximum productivity in rotary die-cutting, 100% waste-free blanks and very high running speeds of the rotary machine.
Marbach offers its customers an extensive service portfolio centred on packaging in the field of die-cutting technology. In addition to training courses at the Marbach Academy, this also includes various services relating to packaging as well as the productivity-increasing Performance Boost package.
Gruber continues: "Our innovations and services all have one goal: to increase the performance of our customers. At FachPack, we succeeded in showing our visitors the advantages of using Marbach technologies. We are already looking forward to many follow-up projects after the fair."
Special situations require special actions. In view of current events, we are intensively engaged in the question of how we can support facilities such as hospitals, nursing homes, etc., but also how we can protect our employees. In addition to door handle hooks for employees, which we manufacture ourselves at our Heilbronn site and which are already actively in use, we are currently producing special face shields which are used in hospitals.
Marbach employs 1,500 people worldwide. As an employer Marbach attaches great importance to the health of its employees. Therefore, the company decided to offer its employees attractive bicycle leasing in 2017 at its headquarter in Heilbronn. Recently the 150th bicycle has been leased from Marbach.
Marbach is known in the market for providing individual solutions. So far, manual top knives have not been part of Marbach's portfolio. However, as customer requirements for high-precision manual top knives have become more and more demanding, Marbach has intensively dealt with this topic. The result is tools manufactured in a new production process which optimally meets customer requirements for more precision.
Marbach uses numerous dieboards for its cutting-dies. Depending on the requirements of the order, suitable dieboard material is selected in coordination with the customer. For high demands on the dimensional stability and service life of a tool, the Marbach portfolio includes various dimensionally stable dieboards.
