Marbach has continuously expanded its services in the past year. The newest member of the Marbach service family is the Marbach Performance Boost package. By which, Marbach supports its consulting service which makes its own process know-how available to its customers and thereby significantly increasing their productivity during the die-cutting process.
In recent years, Marbach has discovered that customers want more from their tool suppliers than just functioning cutting-dies. Topics that came up repeatedly were training, assistance with packaging development or process support. Marbach has taken these customer wishes into account: with the opening of the Marbach Academy. It is now possible to offer various packaging design services and to create the Performance Boost package, which analyzes the processes of Marbach customers and makes suggestions for optimization.
Jan Brunner, Head of Business Development at Marbach: "In concrete terms, you have to imagine it this way: one of our experienced application engineers visits the customer for an initial analysis. He analyzes the customer's individual infrastructure, looks at the tools used, the machinery as well as the set-up and production processes. After the analysis, the process is evaluated and the optimization potential identified. On the basis of this, an individual catalog of actions is developed for each customer. By implementing these measures, the customer can optimize their processes and thus increase their performance. If desired, our application engineer can then support the customer in the implementation phase."
The aim of the Marbach Performance Boost package is to support customers by helping them increase their die-cutting productivity. As a result they benefit from more output, more flexibility in their production and ultimately from an increase in their profits. In some instances it has been possible to increase net output per hour by up to 30 %.
With its stripping technologies, Marbach has an extensive portfolio on the market for smooth processes and waste-free stripping. An important product, and the basic requirement for a stable stripping process, is the precision set-up aid marbapoint. The male and female strippers are precisely positioned in relation to each other. The marbapoint is therefore a simple and cost-effective way to optimize the setup process.
On the 5th of July 2019 the Family Day took place for the 6th time at Marbach. The theme was "Beach Party - it's summertime". Almost 400 employees and their families gathered on the company premises and celebrated together in bright sunshine.
Marbach is exhibiting - as in previous years - at the FachPack in Nuremberg at the end of September. For Marbach, this coming together of the packaging industry has become an established part of the exhibition year.
Marbach founded a new branch in Tianjin together with the machine manufacturer Masterwork in the summer of 2018. Cutting-dies for the Chinese folding box industry are mainly manufactured at this location. A few months later, Marbach started its new materials subsidiary in Mexico. A production facility in the USA will follow in the summer of 2019. At Marbach all signs point to expansion.
