Marbach has many years of experience in the production of thermoforming tools. With its motto "The right solution for every requirement," Marbach produces molds with a wide variety of cavities. In the USA, especially the XXL molds from Marbach enjoy high popularity. Demand has been further increased during the Corona pandemic.
Hubert Kittelmann, Sales Manager Marbach Werkzeugbau: "The demand for thermoform packaging has been increasing very strongly since last year. The current Corona pandemic has been leading restaurants worldwide to focus significantly more on takeaway business. This of course has had a direct impact on the demand for "To Go" packaging. This trend is particularly noticeable in the USA, where we have been enjoying high demand for large post-trim tools. With these, our customers can produce more packaging in the same amount of time."
In addition, the discussion about packaging made from more sustainable materials continues. In a number of states in the U.S., foamed packaging has now been largely banned and suppliers are switching to alternatives made from PP or APET.
Kittelmann continues: "These materials place the highest demands on mold technology, which is why Marbach is also a sought-after partner here. Because in addition to expertise in proper cooling and precise cutting gaps of a thermoforming tool, appropriate large-scale and high-precision manufacturing machines are required for the production of the tools. Marbach's superbly equipped production facility in Heilbronn has these special systems in use, operated by experts with many years of experience."
Exclusive XXL molds for the world's largest trim-in-place machines have been built at the Heilbronn plant from as early as 1990. Marbach's customers in the USA are now benefiting from this expertise. Thanks to efficient mold technology "Made in Germany", they can meet the increased demand for recyclable plastic packaging in the USA.
Marbach Die Supplies includes in its portfolio a very special hand tool for simple and fast insertion of waste nicks into cutting rules: the marbanick|2+. This is the follow-on development of the long-standing and time-proven marbanick and marbanick|2.
Marbach has been participating in the world's largest exhibition for the packaging industry, drupa, since 1977. At the upcoming drupa in 2 weeks, from April 20-23, Marbach will again be represented with a booth - but this time virtually. Because of the Corona pandemic, this year's exhibition will take place exclusively online. On the 4 days of the fair, however, everything will center on packaging online.
Marbach Die Supplies has the right solution for every requirement in its portfolio. In the counter plate sector, Marbach offers a comprehensive portfolio of materials for diemakers. From simple creasing matrixes to cutting plates for the production of steel counter plates. However, the top seller in counter materials has remained the same for years: rillma+. But what makes this material so popular?
Marbach is repositioning itself for the future. The company with its more than 20 locations worldwide, has evaluated its position during a one-year-long strategy project. The results are impressive: a new sales structure, the introduction of "Production Centers of Excellence" and new industry management reorganization for the most important target markets: folding carton and corrugated board.
