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 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.
