Marbach will soon officially open its new training center. Prior to this, participants of the advanced course "Corrugated board processing – flat die-cutting" from the Paper Centre Gernsbach had the opportunity to spend a day at Marbach‘s new die-cutter as part of a 3-day seminar.
The Paper Centre Gernsbach has been working with Marbach for many years. Marbach actively supports the seminars of the Paper Centre on-site with speakers from the areas of paperboard and corrugated board.
Seminar leader Holger Burkert: "When we learned that Marbach was getting its own die-cutting machine, we immediately contacted them. It is, after all, an enrichment if our training participants are not only taught theoretical knowledge, but can also experience a die-cutting machine live in action. This makes seminars even more valuable and practice-oriented. We are pleased that Marbach can provide us with this opportunity."
Twelve people from the Paper Centre came to Marbach in Heilbronn on 21st November 2017 and received a theoretical introduction to begin with. Afterwards they moved on to the die-cutting machine. There, the participants were able to witness live the setting up of an order on the die-cutter and to evaluate the results.
Burkert continues: "This first pilot event at Marbach served to show us how we could best integrate the die-cutting machine from Marbach into our seminars, which processes and what content would make sense and what can be done in the new Marbach Training Center. We have come a long way here. We are definately planning to intensify cooperation with Marbach in the corrugated board and folding box sectors."
Clearly Marbach and the Paper Centre Gernsbach will further intensify their cooperation in the future.
Marbach recently launched a new system under the name Embossing Register System IV. This allows embossing plates to be set up quickly and easily on embossing dies. With the Marbach system, users can save time when setting up the embossing dies and thus reduce machine downtimes.
Marbach has made a successful start to the new year with its Marbach Academy. In the first quarter of 2019, there were training courses on the subjects of paperboard and cigarette packaging as well as several individual training courses for customers.
Our US location in Charlotte is developing very positively. Following the start of production in 2012, Marbach America has grown into a stable revenue generator within the globally active Marbach Group. In order to be able to serve its customers even better, Marbach America has invested in a laser system of the latest generation. In March 2019 a laser system of the type mlas|compact-2 was installed at Marbach America.
Marbach is on course for expansion. After Marbach has founded subsidiaries in the USA, Malaysia, China and Mexico in the recent years, a second location in the USA will follow this summer. Since 2012 Marbach is already represented with a production site in Charlotte, North Carolina.
