“Automatic blanking is not very common in South-East Asia and, as a result, still an interesting topic for customers in this area,” says Markus Stegmann, chief executive officer of Marbach Asia Pacific. “The new Marbach light blanker is a light and modular blanking tool that is cost-efficient and therefore perfect for jobs that have been separated manually so far. Its base frame can stay in the machine and can be adjusted quickly each time according to the job-specific blanking grid.”
The new Bobst diecutter replaced an existing Far East machine installed at the facility. For the next two years, Bobst and Marbach customers can see live at the Marbach plant how a time-consuming manual separating process is replaced by a single, automatic operation with the Novacut 106 ER that runs on Marbach tools. These automatic processes are not only more efficient than manual ones, but also improve the quality of the produced packaging.
