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 has expanded its packaging services step by step over the last few months. Customers who have a packaging sample and need the corresponding CAD data for it, can have it created by Marbach and technically checked at the same time. This allows packaging manufacturers to concentrate fully on their core competencies.
Marbach has been on an expansion course for years. In autumn, Marbach will open its new location in Michigan City, Indiana. The newly created facility in Michigan City will complement Marbach America's current resources at the Marbach site in Charlotte, NC. Preparations to open the new Marbach office are already in full swing.
