Marbach has been offering training courses at its academy for almost 2 years. Under the motto "Marbach Academy. More knowledge. More skills." Marbach teaches important know-how about die-cutting packaging in practice-oriented training courses. Marbach held numerous training courses in 2019.
Tina Dost: "The Marbach Academy has established itself. Last year we were able to welcome many customers, but also board manufacturers and technical schools. In addition, we were part of a new advanced training program of the FFI (Fachverband Faltschachtelindustrie e.V.). The evaluation of our training courses by the participants has been extremely good. This has encouraged us to continue contributing our share to industry training, supporting our customers in their requirements and increasing their performance."
The Marbach training programs are not only popular locally, but participants from all over the world come to Heilbronn to get training for greater performance in die-cutting.
Dost continues: "We not only offer standard training courses, but also individual training courses. From a modular system, the participating company can choose the topics that are of particular interest to its employees. Individual and intensive training takes place based on these topic choices. In recent months there has been an increased demand for this type of training."
The training program for 2020 is already available. It can be found on the Marbach homepage www.marbach.com/trainings or in the Marbach training brochure. This can be requested at: email@example.com.
Marbach has added a new blanking tool to its product range. The alublanker is, as its name suggests, made of aluminum and completely CNC-milled. One of the first customers to use the alublanker is Marbach's long-standing partner MPS in Obersulm - a company of the Consumer Packaging Business of the WestRock Group. The Obersulm site produces high-quality folding cartons for the international perfume and cosmetics industry.
Marbach has published a new whitepaper for tobacco applications on its knowledge platform, the Experience Hub.
Marbach provides solutions to ensure top performance for its customers. In order to make packaging more attractive and to visually highlight individual elements of packing, the embellishment process of embossing is often used. As an eye-catcher, it increases the impact of a package at the point of sale. This then has a sales-promoting effect for the packaged product. If the embossing process is not integrated into the die-cutting process but is carried out separately, this is known as embossing and die-cutting in two passes. This is more time-consuming than an embossing process integrated into the die-cutting process. But here, too, set-up times can be minimized.
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies (MDS) includes machines, equipment and materials for diemaking. In particular, MDS has expanded its range of manual devices in recent months. Among the most popular of these is the mcut|multi multifunctional cutting tool. It cuts rule materials quickly and without deformation. Plastika Mostar in Slovenia is already using mcut|multi and is very impressed.
