Marbach Tool Manufacturing (Werkzeugbau) has in recent months increasingly sold tools with the Mafox|F system. This means that customers' demand for this Marbach technology has been growing significantly.
Clamp rings have an important influence in the thermoforming process. Mainly on the characteristics of the article edge. The more precise the clampring according to sealing rim design to the desired article shape, the better the product will be. That is why Marbach has developed the Mafox|F. This is an exchangeable clamp ring, with which different cup designs of sealing rims can be quite easily produced with the same tool. With the Mafox|F, clamp rings can be optimally matched to the product that is to be manufactured. Different foil thicknesses in one tool are also possible without time-consuming clamp ring changes.
Marbach Director of Sales Asia Thomas Reinhardt: “We have in the meantime equipped more than 10 tools with Mafox|F. The feedback from our customers has been very positive. The major difference is that Marbach is changing a tall barrel looking like part and not only a small ring at the downholder front. This allows uninterrupted fast cooling of the clamp ring, and thus ensures a perfect rapid cooling of the sealing rim, which in turn counteracts the lifting up of the edge." The results are high-quality plastic cups.
But it's not only the cup quality that is important with Mafox|F, but also the production speed. Because when this Marbach technology is used in combination with an MT|easy aluminum cutting plate or the sandwich steel plate system, it is possible to implement quickly replaceable seal bead contours in the tool without speed reductions.
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.
