Marbach has recently invested in a Gabler M98 Maxx. At the beginning of July the new thermoforming machine was delivered to Marbach in Heilbronn.
Ferdinand Rieker, Team Leader Tooling & Service at Marbach: “On the 3rd of July 2017 it finally happened: our new thermoforming machine Gabler M98 Maxx arrived at our facility. Given the fact that the machine was delivered completely assembled on a low-loader, the final installation took only a few days. Everything ran smoothly. We are very happy about our latest addition to the family. With our three machines we are now able to fulfill even better the wishes of our customers and to offer the right solution for every requirement.”
The new thermoforming machine comes with different possibilities for Marbach: because match-metal tools can now be tested extensively for their functionality and quality before being delivered to customers. Also process safety and productivity can be better optimized directly at Marbach, without affecting the production capacity of our customers.
Rieker continues: “Through the currently largest possible tool mounting space of the M98 Maxx, we can test directly at our premises all “the industry's big ones”, such as tools for the Illig RDM 75K, Gabler M98 or Kiefel KTR6. This means even more performance for our customers.”
Additionally Marbach will use its new thermoforming machine intensively in the research and development department.
Marbach launched its tool marbaclean onto the market last year. Product safety and conformity to highest hygiene demands are benefits, that are attracting great interest in the market. marbacelan is ISEGA certified and therefore suitable for packaging production in the food industry – particularly for direct packaging, which has direct contact with the packaged goods.
Marbach knows the requirements of the market. Especially for manufacturing cigarette packaging where the demands on quality are high, and the packaging process has to be especially productive. With the crease bend tester, Marbach offers its customers a device with which creasing forces and folding resistance of a package can be tested precisely. For the smooth packaging process of cigarettes.
Marbach presented some time ago its technology for optically appealing visible edges in corrugated board packaging. Since then various customers are employing pure edge. One of these customers is the Sealed Air Verpackungen GmbH in Alsfeld, Germany. Sealed Air has been so convinced by this technology that in the meantime all its tools for single-wall corrugated board have been equipped with pure edge.
After the installation of a die-cutting machine at Marbach at the beginning of July, the preparations for the new training center are running at full speed at the Heilbronn-based die-maker. The official start is planned for the beginning of 2018. Marbach will then offer its customers training on the topics of die-cutting of paperboard and corrugated board. The focus will be on topics such as productivity and the significant reduction of make-ready time.
