Marbach presented to the visitors of the Marbach & Brausse Innovation Days its solution for a fast make-ready and archiving of hotfoil clichés: the Marbach thinplate system. Customers save the most of make-ready time with this system. This advantage becomes especially clear for repeat orders. A customer, who has already used this system for years is the company Tako Carton Plant Ltd. – that belongs to the Pyroll-Group.
Mikko Pihkanen, Product Designer at Tako Carton Plant Ltd.: “Setting up hotfoil clichés is very time-consuming. That’s why years ago we were already looking for a solution that reduced this time and effort and improved our efficiency in production. After a long search we became aware of the Marbach thinplate system. We have now been using this for more than two years. It is mainly used for packaging for the consumer goods industry with a high level of refinement. With the latest version of this system, we shorten the make-ready time of hotfoil jobs to a minimum. For purely repeat orders, it is in most cases a reduction of make-ready times of around 100%. We take the thinplate, on which the single clichés are archived, from our storage, insert it into our machine and start producing. Arranging the clichés to the print image is normally unnecessary for repeat jobs, because the clichés can be archived on the thinplate during the first make-ready. An unbeatable advantage. On a 10-ups tool for example, we can sometimes save 8 hours. Thus a whole shift.”
Marbach has expanded its packaging services step by step over the last few months. Customers who have a packaging sample and need the corresponding CAD data for it, can have it created by Marbach and technically checked at the same time. This allows packaging manufacturers to concentrate fully on their core competencies.
Marbach has been on an expansion course for years. In autumn, Marbach will open its new location in Michigan City, Indiana. The newly created facility in Michigan City will complement Marbach America's current resources at the Marbach site in Charlotte, NC. Preparations to open the new Marbach office are already in full swing.
