After the installation of a die-cutting machine at Marbach at the beginning of July, the preparations for the new training center are running at full speed at the Heilbronn-based die-maker. The official start is planned for the beginning of 2018. Marbach will then offer its customers training on the topics of die-cutting of paperboard and corrugated board. The focus will be on topics such as productivity and the significant reduction of make-ready time.
Sven Zimmermann, innovation and project manager at Marbach: “We are currently becoming familiar with our new die-cutting machine. Product tests are the best way for us to kill two birds with one stone: to test our own products extensively and also to become familiar with the machine. Moreover we are in the process of preparing for our training programme. Although the launch of the Marbach Academy is planned for 2018, the first customers have already been trained.“
Marbach will offer various training programmes under the name “Marbach Academy. More knowledge. More skills.”. All of these will have one thing in common: they will be practice-oriented with the goal of not only informing participants but also providing them with added value. Sven Zimmermann: “Our training will be designed in such a way so that the participants can gain not only theoretical knowledge, but also many skills that can immediately be put into practice. And immediately after the training. Our experienced instructors – all of whom are packaging technicians or application engineers – know exactly what it comes down to in practice.”
The training will leave enough room for requests and questions. The content can therefore be adapted individually to the participants' needs. In this way everybody will be able to profit optimally from their participation.
With its calibration tool package, Marbach ensures that its customers can quickly and easily re-adjust the components of their die-cutting machine for flat die-cutting of corrugated board. This results in a significant reduction of set-up and make-ready times.
Marbach started its training program one and a half years ago. Under the name "Marbach Academy. More knowledge. More skills." Today Marbach offers practice-oriented training courses in all aspects of die-cutting packaging. The new training program for 2020 is now available
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies includes materials for the rubbering of cutting-dies. When it comes to rubber materials, the most important thing is that they are resistant and durable. When used in the right place in the cutting-die, they ensure that the paperboard material is ejected optimally during the cutting process. In addition, they ensure the stability of the nicks and thus provide smooth production processes in the die-cutting machine.
Marbach Asia Pacific in Kuala Lumpur organized once again Open House Days on 3rd and 4th October 2019. More than 100 visitors attended: brand owners, politicians and, of course, customers and interested parties from the packaging industry. All were able to convince themselves of the high-performance standards at the South-east Asian plant of the Marbach Group.
