Marbach continues to invest in its machines. Since a Speedperformer KMD85 from Kiefel was installed in 2016, Marbach will soon expand its machine park even more. The Gabler M98 MAXX is the fourth Gabler machine that has been purchased by Marbach during the last years. A close partnership links Marbach and Gabler already since the 1980s.
With the new thermoforming machine, thermoformed packaging products can be produced. Marbach will use this for different applications. Area Sales Manager Sefa Bincan: “We will apply our new machine for production tools as well as testing tools.”
The M98 MAXX has the greatest possible tool mounting space at the moment. This makes it very flexible concerning tool size. Therefore tools for any leading thermoforming machines can be inserted: tools for machines of the Illig RDM series, the Kiefel KTR series, the WM FT series, the TSL FT4K, the Güven FT, and the Gabler M series.
Bincan continues: “We are highly flexible with our new machine and it delivers undreamt-of possibilities. We can, for example, perform extensive functionality and quality tests before delivering to the customer. Moreover, we can optimize the tools our customers order with regard to process safety and productivity on our Gabler M 98 MAXX. And all this without having to reduce our customers' production capacity.”
In addition Marbach offers start-up production runs for customers. In the case of shortages in their production, customers can fall back on Marbach capacities.
Furthermore, Marbach will use the new machine intensively in the area of research and development. Because it also will be used to test recent proto-types innovations, to optimize processes with special sensor technology and to develop new functional packaging.
Marbach recently presented its new embossing register system for embossing-dies under the name PES IV. One customer who has been successfully using this system for several months now is A&R Carton in Kriftel, Germany.
Marbach opened its Marbach Academy in 2017. In its first year, more than 220 participants visited the training center in Heilbronn. And since then the number has been constantly growing. Marbach is training the industry in the die-cutting process.
An eventful year has come to an end for the cutting-die and thermoforming tool manufacturer Marbach. Marbach has a nice tradition of making donations at Christmas instead of giving presents to customers. When selecting recipients, it is important for the Marbach management to divide the money between internationally known and regionally respected institutions. Because the Heilbronn-based company is active all over the world .This year, Marbach has donated 7,000 euros to help in Burkina Faso and 3,000 euros to the protection against freezing to death by the Aufbaugilde Heilbronn.
