Marbach introduced its innovation MT|easy speed at the K 2016. Since then various customers have switched to this technology. And they are delighted by the performance they achieve with MT|easy speed.
One of those convinced customers is The Thrace Group, which is the largest manufacturer of thermoformed products in Greece.
Production manager of thermoforming, Stathis Ioannis, reports his experiences with the new Marbach technology: “We have been using MT|easy speed tools for 3 months already. Our experiences have been entirely positive. The tool handling is remarkably simple, the make-ready times are short. And the retrofitting from one tool to the next one is noticeably faster than with conventional thermoforming tools. This is achieved by a quick-change system with which the MT|easy speed tools are equipped.
What we have noticed during the last months: the efficiency of Marbach MT|easy speed tools is significantly greater than the tools of Marbach competitors which we have used up to now. We can report a performance increase of more than 10% in comparison. Overall, the production process is more stable. Moreover the cooling of the thermoforming tool is more efficient so our energy consumption has been reduced through the use of MT|easy speed tools.
And the best of all: we not only have advantages with regard to productivity but also concerning the quality of the end product. With MT|easy speed the material distribution is exceptionally good. So the wall thickness of the thermoformed products is very consistent. For this reason the quality of our final products has been significantly improved.”
The Thrace Group will also rely on MT|easy speed by Marbach in the future. As many other customers, who have tested this new Marbach technology.
Marbach has recently published its new materials catalog for packaging manufacturers. Since then, many customers have not only requested the catalog, but also ordered materials for their everyday requirements. And they are pleased that the purchasing process has been simplified for them.
Marbach will soon start its joint venture Marbach Masterwork (Tianjin) Cutting Tools Co Ltd. in China. As of July, Marbach will have a further production site in Asia in addition to its production in Malaysia. The range includes cutting-dies, stripping and blanking tools for the Chinese tobacco and folding carton industry.
How time flies! Only 2 more years - and drupa in Düsseldorf will open its doors. Marbach has not only signed up, but has already started planning intensively.
Marbach will be present, with a stand at the IHK education fair in 2018 – as in previous years. This will take place from 28th to 30th June at the redblue center in Heilbronn. At the stand Marbach has a roller press with which a multi-book - a kind of school organizer - is die-cut, which the visitors can take with them immediately. Marbach also has a surprise in store for the visitors, but this is still top secret at the moment.
