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 waiting for FachPack 2018 to start. On September 25, this important meeting place for the packaging industry will open its doors. More than 40,000 visitors are expected in Nuremberg during the three days of the fair. Marbach will present its innovations at booth 612 in hall 7. Marbach has additonally a stand at the special exhibition "Packaging in Medical Technology and Pharmacy" in Hall 3A where it will present its products for pharmaceutical manufacturers.
Marbach has recently been offering a new technology, which focuses on the embossing of small print runs. With its polymar embossing plates, Marbach has been offering a quickly available, and at the same time inexpensive solution for embossing small quantities. The first customer orders have already been produced and look very promising. A new technology with enormous potential.
Marbach Werkzeugbau invested in a Gabler M98 Maxx last year. This machine has in the meantime passed its test. Three tools were test-run for a US customer – all with great success.
Marbach regularly organizes what has become known as the Marbach Cup. At this football tournament, employees of the various Marbach subsidiaries from all over the world meet at different locations to test their football skills. In addition to the sporting part, there is always a leisure activity with sightseeing, and all in a relaxed get-together atmosphere. The Marbach Cup has existed now for more than a decade and the participants always look forward to meeting their colleagues from other countries. This year The Marbach Cup took place from July 6 to 8 in Russia. The venue was at the Marbach franchise partner Raster in Obninsk.
