Marbach Werkzeugbau (tool making) recently exhibited its innovations at the Chinaplas trade fair in Shanghai. Chinaplas is the most important plastics trade fair in Asia. This year the Chinaplas took place from 24th to 27th April.
Many visitors visited the Marbach stand to be informed about the latest developments of the Heilbronn-based toolmaker. Marbach Sales Manager Thomas Reinhardt: "Along with K in Düsseldorf and NPE in Chicago, Chinaplas is one of the most important plastics fairs worldwide. The visitors come not only from China, but from all over Asia. The interest of the visitors in our new technologies was enormous."
One of the highlights of Marbach’s innovations was the Marbach Turner, a thermoformed cup with reclosable screw cap. But also the Marbach tool MT|easy speed, which ensures rapid speeds in the production of thermoformed cups, attracted the attention of the visitors.
Marbach also presented its new modular system for steel-rule tools, which provides users with high flexibility.
Reinhardt continues: "The goal of our technologies is clear. We want to offer our customers maximum performance with our tools. This has been proven by long tool life, high cycle rates and short set-up times. The result is great packaging for the PoS."
Marbach recently launched a new system under the name Embossing Register System IV. This allows embossing plates to be set up quickly and easily on embossing dies. With the Marbach system, users can save time when setting up the embossing dies and thus reduce machine downtimes.
Marbach has made a successful start to the new year with its Marbach Academy. In the first quarter of 2019, there were training courses on the subjects of paperboard and cigarette packaging as well as several individual training courses for customers.
Our US location in Charlotte is developing very positively. Following the start of production in 2012, Marbach America has grown into a stable revenue generator within the globally active Marbach Group. In order to be able to serve its customers even better, Marbach America has invested in a laser system of the latest generation. In March 2019 a laser system of the type mlas|compact-2 was installed at Marbach America.
Marbach is on course for expansion. After Marbach has founded subsidiaries in the USA, Malaysia, China and Mexico in the recent years, a second location in the USA will follow this summer. Since 2012 Marbach is already represented with a production site in Charlotte, North Carolina.
