Marbach Asia Pacific in Kuala Lumpur organized once again Open House Days on 3rd and 4th October 2019. More than 100 visitors attended: brand owners, politicians and, of course, customers and interested parties from the packaging industry. All were able to convince themselves of the high-performance standards at the South-east Asian plant of the Marbach Group.
Markus Stegmann, Managing Director at Marbach Asia Pacific: "We are delighted that so many visitors came to our Oktoberfest. For the fourth time already, we have opened our doors to customers and interested parties. The feedback has been outstanding. Above all, the interest in our latest innovations has been very high. We can see from this that our customers in the Asian region, too, are increasingly demanding better performance in their packaging production."
Over a period of two days, Marbach Asia Pacific offered its visitors an exciting program in an Oktoberfest atmosphere. In addition to factory tours and presentations on the subject of "die-cutting technology for packaging", there were live demonstrations of Marbach tools. These took place on a BOBST Novacut 106ER, which is in the meantime the third BOBST die-cutting machine under the roof of Marbach Asia Pacific. Traditional Bavarian food and drinks ensured the physical well-being of the visitors. As a special highlight, all Marbach Asia Pacific employees dressed in traditional Bavarian dirndls and leather trousers.
Marbach has decided to cooperate with laser solutions specialist Cutlite Penta. In a development cooperation, Marbach will work with Cutlite Penta to create an optimized laser program that will meet the Marbach Group's high demands for laser systems.
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies (MDS) includes machines, equipment as well as materials for diemaking. However, MDS does not only supply diemakers, but also packaging manufacturers with materials for daily needs as well as equipment and machines for the diecutting environment. One of the latest additions to the portfolio are the mbench|smart and mbench|pro workbenches.
Marbach supplies packaging manufacturers of folding boxes and corrugated packaging with tools and also offers them a wide range of die-cutting services. In this context, the topic of digitalization and Industry 4.0 is an important part of the current development work - both in tooling technology and in the services of the corporate group. However, not only Marbach's portfolio is becoming increasingly digital, but also its communication.
