Marbach Werkzeugbau (Tool Manufacturing) presented news from its product portfolio at the international conference "Thin Wall Packaging Cologne" from 4th to 6th December 2017. The Thin Wall Packaging Cologne conference has been a fixed event in the industry for many years. It brings together all manufacturers from the field of thin-walled plastic packaging who meet there to network, and to participate in lectures and workshops. Due to the positive response, Thin Wall events are now also being held in the USA and Asia.
In Cologne, Marbach presented a practical example of product development. In a lecture Marbach introduced the "Turner" to an international audience. The Turner is a thermoformed cup with reclosable screw cap. This is comparable to the well-known metal lid of a jam jar. What makes the Turner so special is that up to now, such closures could only be manufactured with complex tooling techniques that required compromises in product design. The Marbach solution is simpler. Because the Turner can be thermoformed with a standard tool with round cutting geometry.
The Turner has met with great interest in the market over the past few months and was the subject of a lot of discussion among the participants at Thin Wall Packaging in Cologne too.
Marbach is looking forward to an exciting year in 2018, which will see increasing internationalization and continued focus on the topics of future security, service and performance for customers.
Tina Dost: "The year 2018 will be full of exciting projects. We will enter new markets, work on the introduction of our ERP system and continue to invest. And, of course, we will also launch some new products onto market. Together with our customers, we are looking forward to delivering even better performance with our solutions."
Marbach has also taken on more social responsibility in the past year 2017. Marbach is currently revising its Corporate Social Responsibility report. The company is deeply involved in the topic of sustainability.
Marbach Werkzeugbau (Tool Manufacturing) will exhibit once again at the Interplastica in Moscow in 2018. This international trade fair for plastics and rubber will take place from 23rd to 26th January. It is the leading plastics trade fair for Russia and Eastern Europe.
