Marbach Werkzeugbau (tool making) recently exhibited its innovations at the Chinaplas trade fair in Shanghai. Chinaplas is the most important plastics trade fair in Asia. This year the Chinaplas took place from 24th to 27th April.
Many visitors visited the Marbach stand to be informed about the latest developments of the Heilbronn-based toolmaker. Marbach Sales Manager Thomas Reinhardt: "Along with K in Düsseldorf and NPE in Chicago, Chinaplas is one of the most important plastics fairs worldwide. The visitors come not only from China, but from all over Asia. The interest of the visitors in our new technologies was enormous."
One of the highlights of Marbach’s innovations was the Marbach Turner, a thermoformed cup with reclosable screw cap. But also the Marbach tool MT|easy speed, which ensures rapid speeds in the production of thermoformed cups, attracted the attention of the visitors.
Marbach also presented its new modular system for steel-rule tools, which provides users with high flexibility.
Reinhardt continues: "The goal of our technologies is clear. We want to offer our customers maximum performance with our tools. This has been proven by long tool life, high cycle rates and short set-up times. The result is great packaging for the PoS."
Marbach supplies not only cutting-dies, but also quality control devices for testing the creasing values of packaging blanks. With devices such as the crease bend tester, not only a smooth packaging process can be ensured, but also the quality of the produced packaging.
Marbach was recently visited by its customer Å&R Carton Lund AB for an audit. Å&R Carton looked closely at Marbach from a number of viewpoints and certified Marbach with a very good performance.
With its marbanick|2 for paperboard tools, Marbach has brought a hand tool onto the market that convinces users with its flexibility and simplicity. Since its introduction in May 2018, Marbach has sold almost 200 of these hand-held devices.
Marbach expands its Die Supplies & Automation division. From 01 February 2019, André Angermeir joins the Marbach team as the new Sales Manager. With Angermeir, Marbach has been able to gain an industry insider with a wealth of experience in the world of cutting-dies.
