Marbach continues to invest in its machines. Since a Speedperformer KMD85 from Kiefel was installed in 2016, Marbach will soon expand its machine park even more. The Gabler M98 MAXX is the fourth Gabler machine that has been purchased by Marbach during the last years. A close partnership links Marbach and Gabler already since the 1980s.
With the new thermoforming machine, thermoformed packaging products can be produced. Marbach will use this for different applications. Area Sales Manager Sefa Bincan: “We will apply our new machine for production tools as well as testing tools.”
The M98 MAXX has the greatest possible tool mounting space at the moment. This makes it very flexible concerning tool size. Therefore tools for any leading thermoforming machines can be inserted: tools for machines of the Illig RDM series, the Kiefel KTR series, the WM FT series, the TSL FT4K, the Güven FT, and the Gabler M series.
Bincan continues: “We are highly flexible with our new machine and it delivers undreamt-of possibilities. We can, for example, perform extensive functionality and quality tests before delivering to the customer. Moreover, we can optimize the tools our customers order with regard to process safety and productivity on our Gabler M 98 MAXX. And all this without having to reduce our customers' production capacity.”
In addition Marbach offers start-up production runs for customers. In the case of shortages in their production, customers can fall back on Marbach capacities.
Furthermore, Marbach will use the new machine intensively in the area of research and development. Because it also will be used to test recent proto-types innovations, to optimize processes with special sensor technology and to develop new functional packaging.
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.
