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.
The mlas|compact-2 is equipped with the latest technology in laser beam guidance. This provides the highest laser cutting precision when cutting wood and steel. The SLAB laser source delivers 2,500 watts. Integrated remote maintenance ensures optimum production reliability and machine availability for the mlas|compact-2.
Pires continues: "The use of the latest technologies is part of the continuous further development of Marbach America. This not only increases our performance, but also that of our customers. The mlas|compact-2 is the latest top technology at Marbach America, which underlines our market leadership".
Due to the great success of the US location in Charlotte, Marbach will start another location in the USA this summer: In Michigan City Marbach will open a production location from which the packaging industry in the Chicago area will be supplied with Marbach quality tools. A mlas|compact-2 will also be installed there.
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.
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.
