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 has continuously expanded its services in the past year. The newest member of the Marbach service family is the Marbach Performance Boost package. By which, Marbach supports its consulting service which makes its own process know-how available to its customers and thereby significantly increasing their productivity during the die-cutting process.
Marbach has been using for some time now a new rubber for rubbering cutting-dies. The name of this high-performance material is flexpower. Certified by ISEGA for use in the food industry, this rubber offers numerous advantages to operators. Marbach uses flexpower in corrugated board tools (both flat and rotary) and also sells it as raw material.
Marbach is one of the large material suppliers in Germany. Under the name Marbach Die Supplies, Marbach offers materials for packaging manufacturers that meet the requirements in the field of die-cutting. In order to support its customers even more in increasing their performance, Marbach has expanded its material portfolio.
Marbach was present at the IADD Odyssey in Atlanta Georgia from May 1 to 3, 2019. At this event Marbach showcased its latest technologies in the fields of die-cutting technology as well as machines and materials for cutting-die production. More than 250 visitors showed particular interest in Marbach and its technologies. During the three days many interesting conversations took place at the two Marbach stands.
