Marbach has further optimized its blanking technology. At FachPack 2016, Marbach presented for the first time its new blanking presser marbapusher|p. Since then it has enjoyed great popularity amongst the customers. Therefore, as of now, it will be used as a standard at Marbach. This means that all male marbablanker tools will be delivered with marbapusher|p in the future.
This system can be used for both presser plates and custom-shaped presser bars. Jan Brunner, Head of Business Development at Marbach: “Our challenge has been to develop a presser with a high degree of flexibility for the customer, that is durable and doesn’t take up a lot of storage space. Our marbapusher|p meets these requirements. From now on, thanks to its special design, a tool with a presser plate can be used in every kind of machine frame. So the waste grid is better fixed in position and higher machine speeds are possible. Moreover the marbapusher|p is being produced with long-life material which significantly increases life-span compared to other pressers in telescope version.”
Furthermore, there is a new adapter bar for the Marbach entry-level blanking tool – lightblanker. With this new adapter bar, existing blanking tools can be used on the new Marbach lightblanker frame quickly and easily.
Jan Brunner: “By now the majority of our customers count on our new blanking technologies. The lightblanker is characterized by its low weight and cost-efficient price. It is perfect for jobs where blanks have been separated manually before. For higher requirements, we have developed the marbablanker. It perfectly suits the operators' needs and allows a smooth production process. For very small blanks, we have the special nick-breaking solution. In this way we can offer our customers the right solution for every requirement.”
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.
