Marbach supports its customers’ performance in their production. One customer who can confirm this is Manuel Nieto, Technical Manager at Quimica Comercial in Ecuador. Marbach and Quimica Comercial have been working together for two years. With great success. And with the support of Marbach, Quimica Comercial has been able to significantly increase its productivity.
Manuel Nieto: "We are very satisfied with Marbach's work. It is not only the quality of the tools that we believe to be outstanding. But also we are convinced their support, advice and service are unique."
Quimica Comercial has had positive experiences with the Marbach masterstrip|plate in the stripping tool sector. Nieto: "We use Marbach's masterstrip|plate for stripping. Even jobs with many small stripping parts run smoothly through the stripping station. Not only at high speed, but without machine stops and with very good stripping results. So not only are we enthusiastic, but our customers too."
Before cooperation with Marbach, setting-up was a very difficult process for Quimica Comercial. The make-ready times were very long, and resulted in long machine downtimes. Nieto: "By using Marbach tools, we were able to significantly reduce our make-ready times. To further increase our productivity, Marbach worked with us to analyze our processes and develop set-up time routines for us as well as training our machine operators so that we could increase our set-up efficiency even further.”
Another challenge for Quimica Comercial was a corrugated board tool for die-cutting polypropylene-coated material on a non-standard die-cutting machine. Nieto: "Here Marbach was able to develop the specifications for die-cutting this special material on our machine. This enabled us to increase machine performance by more than 40 %. An amazing result for us."
Quimica Comercial will further strengthen its cooperation with Marbach in the future in order to increase delivery performance even more for its customers.
There are many rotary machines for die-cutting corrugated board. The machines of the Japanese machine manufacturer Mitsubishi are currently making inroads in Europe. These machines place completely new demands on the tool technology used. Marbach has met the challenge and developed tools specially designed for these machines. For maximum productivity in rotary die-cutting.
The Joint Venture between Marbach and the Chinese machine manufacturer Masterwork has begun. Since July the company has been producing in China under the name Marbach Masterwork (Tianjin) Die Cutting Tools Co. Ltd., manufacturing cutting-dies for the national market. Besides its production in Malaysia, Marbach now has a second anchor in Asia. The range includes cutting-dies, stripping and blanking tools for the Chinese cigarette and folding carton industry.
In May Marbach presented its new hand-held device for inserting nicks in cutting rules. Since then, the marbanick|2 – which is the name of the new Marbach product – has been an outstanding success. With the new Marbach hand-held device, the size of the nick can be optimally adapted to the requirements of the user. The insertion of the nicks in different thicknesses is fast, safe and controlled.
Marbach is waiting for FachPack 2018 to start. On September 25, this important meeting place for the packaging industry will open its doors. More than 40,000 visitors are expected in Nuremberg during the three days of the fair. Marbach will present its innovations at booth 612 in hall 7. Marbach has additonally a stand at the special exhibition "Packaging in Medical Technology and Pharmacy" in Hall 3A where it will present its products for pharmaceutical manufacturers.
