The National Plastics Exhibition (NPE) takes place every 3 years in Orlando. The who’s who of the global plastics industry will meet in 2018 from 7 to 11 May. As a specialist for the production of thermoforming tools, Marbach will again be exhibiting there this year and presenting its latest developments.
On its booth W3689 Marbach will reveal its most modern techniques in the field of match-metal. The highlight will be the world's largest tilting tool on a Gabler M100.
In addition to current match-metal tool applications, Marbach will also be presenting its innovations in steel-rule technology. Using various products, Marbach will prove the advantages of different technologies and demonstrate them effectively to the audience. In addition, with interested visitors the tool-maker will discuss a new type of hybrid technology, which is currently still in the testing phase. Marbach general sales manager Hubert Kittelmann: "This year we will have a very special surprise for visitors at our stand. They will learn on the spot how a clean cut with a Marbach tool turns out to be a "piece of cake". We look forward to many visitors."
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.
Marbach expands further. After having opened die production facilities in the USA, Malaysia and China in the past years, Marbach will open a Marbach Die Supplies subsidiary in Mexico in January. From here Marbach will supply materials to Mexican and North American die and packaging manufacturers. In addition, training in the application of technologies will be offered. Marbach's goal is to support the Mexican market in its further development.
