Marbach Tool Manufacturing successfully exhibited at the Chinaplas 2017 in Guangzhou (China). As part of the foreign and export promotion by the German government, Marbach was located in the German section of the Chinaplas with a small booth. All important German machine manufacturers, as well as numerous suppliers of machine parts and injection molders, were represented there.
The trade fair hosted 3,300 exhibitors from 40 countries in a total exhibition area of 250,000 m². 140,000 visitors were recorded on four trade fair days, 35,000 of them from abroad.
Marbach had many different visitors at the booth on those four days. Besides existing customers various new interesting contacts could be made. Marbach Director of Sales Asia, Thomas Reinhardt: “The Chinaplas was once again a very successful event for us. Multiple tool requests are already being processed. And also projects for the next months have been initiated. We are looking forward to the next exhibition, that will take place in one year – this time in Shanghai.
Marbach has a new technology in its portfolio. The universal sheet delivery is a tool with which sheet delivery in the die-cutting machine can be extended so that the delivery of the paperboard sheets can be quickly and easily adapted to each individual job.
Marbach Werkzeugbau is currently working intensively on the topics of digitization and industry 4.0. The main focus here is on digital solutions for tools, processes and services. Within the scope of this project, Marbach has analyzed the future requirements of its customers. The results of this are the two components CONNECT|M and CONNECT|AR (Augmented Reality). CONNECT|M is a technology that intelligently connects the thermoforming tool, Marbach and the customer. CONNECT|AR is about virtual customer support via remote maintenance.
Marbach offers an extensive portfolio of dieboards. The suitable dieboard can be selected according to the requirements of the customer or the particular order. The dieboard forms the basis of a cutting-die. The contours of the packaging are first inserted into the dieboard, then the cutting and creasing rules are positioned and finally the appropriate rubber coating is applied.
Through its Die Supplies & Automation (MDS&A) division Marbach sells machines to die-makers. In addition to laser systems and water jet systems, Marbach has milling machines in its portfolio. The mgrav|2 is its most successful milling machine.
