The internationally operating die-making company Marbach is known for it’s service and consulting competence. JTI US Holdings based in Miami, Florida, a subsidiary of Japan Tobacco International, one of the world's largest tobacco companies produces well-known brands including Winston and Camel cigarettes, is very pleased with Marbach America’s team, based in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Fernando Pires, Chief Operating Officer of Marbach America: "JTI had asked us for our assistance. We should support the qualification of the prospective JTI supplier Padilla based in the Dominican Republic. Our task was to help qualify Padilla in effort to secure orders from JTI. In the course of intensive support for the project and in close consultation with JTI and Padilla, we succeeded in training Padilla quickly and efficiently and prepared them optimally for the new challenges."
Padilla, a leading packaging manufacturer in the Caribbean, was approached by JTI to produce cigarette packaging that meets the tobacco company's high standards and strict specifications in terms of packaging quality, performance speed and security features. It was also required to get Padilla qualified in a very quick timeframe to be ready for the start up of new packaging lines at the JTI factory.
Eric Brooks, JTI Technical Print Manager for the Americas: "I would like to thank Marbach for their great support and the team effort towards this important project. The entire Marbach team has done a very good job. The trainings were target-oriented and efficient. The technical support before, during and after the trainings has more than exceeded our expectations. Already after a short time the first 10’s and 20’s cigarette boxes were successfully produced at Padilla. We couldn’t have done this without the Marbach team."
Due to its extensive portfolio, which includes innovative die-cutting technologies and tools as well as numerous services around packaging, Marbach is able to support both packaging manufacturers and brand owners in their daily challenges.
Marbach has added a new blanking tool to its product range. The alublanker is, as its name suggests, made of aluminum and completely CNC-milled. One of the first customers to use the alublanker is Marbach's long-standing partner MPS in Obersulm - a company of the Consumer Packaging Business of the WestRock Group. The Obersulm site produces high-quality folding cartons for the international perfume and cosmetics industry.
Marbach has published a new whitepaper for tobacco applications on its knowledge platform, the Experience Hub.
Marbach provides solutions to ensure top performance for its customers. In order to make packaging more attractive and to visually highlight individual elements of packing, the embellishment process of embossing is often used. As an eye-catcher, it increases the impact of a package at the point of sale. This then has a sales-promoting effect for the packaged product. If the embossing process is not integrated into the die-cutting process but is carried out separately, this is known as embossing and die-cutting in two passes. This is more time-consuming than an embossing process integrated into the die-cutting process. But here, too, set-up times can be minimized.
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies (MDS) includes machines, equipment and materials for diemaking. In particular, MDS has expanded its range of manual devices in recent months. Among the most popular of these is the mcut|multi multifunctional cutting tool. It cuts rule materials quickly and without deformation. Plastika Mostar in Slovenia is already using mcut|multi and is very impressed.
