Marbach Werkzeugbau (tool manufacturing) will optimize its manufacturing supervision. Under the name Time|M, Marbach will implement a new software that will make production planning at Marbach even more efficient in the future. The introduction of the new software has been planned for autumn 2018.
Marbach Production Manager Matthias Arndt: "In the production of thermoforming tools with manufacturing times of several weeks, timing production is a great challenge. In order to improve our performance for our customers, we have decided to invest in suitable software. We are currently preparing its implementation. The project teams work together with IT and our project partner on the extensive project planning agenda".
This new software will be used in addition to Marbach's existing ERP system.
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.
