Marbach Asia Pacific, the subsidiary of the Marbach Group in Malaysia, has recently installed a new Bobst diecutting machine that will stay at the company for at least two years. The global manufacturer of cutting-dies can now showcase its tools in action on the
Bobst Novacut 106 ER. The machine is equipped with all the important features, such as quick lock frames, 1 mm plate exchange system with micrometric adjustment and, most importantly, a blanking unit.

“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.

Both Bobst and Marbach plan to use the machine for internal and external training, demonstrations and test-runs, and show this new level of the postpress process to achieve unparalleled performance. Also, special events with workshops will take place. Stegmann continues, “In March, an open house will take place at our location. With special guests, and a lot of interesting topics to discuss with customers in the region, this event is one of the things I particularly look forward to.”

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
