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 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.
Marbach has recently expanded its production capacity in Poland. In addition to two already established plants in Tarnowskie Góry and Kielce, another plant in Poznan has become part of the globally active Marbach Group since September 2019.
Marbach is known for its manufacture of tools for the production of packaging. What is less well known is that Marbach also offers high-precision tools for a wide range of technical requirements.
Marbach has responded to the increasing demand for its die-cutting platen cleaning device by launching a revised version into the market. With this, it is now possible to clean machines where previously the Marbach machine could not be used due to lack of space.
