Marbach has a reputation for offering the right solution for every requirement. It now lives up to this motto once more with its new die-cutting machine from Brausse. Because with it, Marbach will expand its competence as well as its range of services. This results in completely new possibilities for the Heilbronn-based cutting-die expert.
Jan Brunner, Head of Business Development at Marbach: “We have a lot of plans with our new die-cutting machine. We will expand the expertise of our employees even further. Step by step. Up to now we have been dependent on external programs in training our employees. Because of our own machine, we will be a lot more flexible in the future.”
Moreover, Marbach has planned a training center for its customers. So Marbach customers can not only order the appropriate tooling technologies in the future. But they can also benefit from the essential knowhow of this market leader. The planned trainings will be characterized by high practical relevance. The participants will also get many valuable tips and tricks to make their daily work much easier. Brunner: “We are currently working on a concept for the new Marbach training center. The first trainings should take place this later year.”
Marbach is one of a few cutting-die manufacturers that have their own die-cutting machine at their disposal. Besides internal and external trainings, Marbach is planning to use the Brausse 1060 ER for testing its latest innovations. In the past Marbach had to carry out these tests on customers' machines. Through the purchase of the Brausse 1060 ER, Marbach will be more flexible in the future and can test the results of its development activity on-site - quickly and in an uncomplicated manner.
Marbach founded a new branch in Tianjin together with the machine manufacturer Masterwork in the summer of 2018. Cutting-dies for the Chinese folding box industry are mainly manufactured at this location. A few months later, Marbach started its new materials subsidiary in Mexico. A production facility in the USA will follow in the summer of 2019. At Marbach all signs point to expansion.
Since drupa 2016 Marbach has had digital zone levelling in its portfolio. Almost 400 machines have been equipped with a DZL|plate in the past 3 years. And the number is increasing every day.
Marbach is already involved in its planning for the most important international trade fair for the printing industry: drupa 2020. And now there is only 1 year left until drupa opens its doors again. The last drupa was very special for Marbach: with the number of visitors reaching record levels. No previous drupa had more visitors at the Marbach stand than in 2016.
Marbach has continuously expanded its services in the past year. The newest member of the Marbach service family is the Marbach Performance Boost package. By which, Marbach supports its consulting service which makes its own process know-how available to its customers and thereby significantly increasing their productivity during the die-cutting process.
