Marbach Werkzeugbau was once again represented at Interplastica in Moscow in 2018. This international trade fair for plastics and rubber took place from 23 to 26 January. It is the traditional annual kick-off event for the industry, and serves as a mood barometer for many insiders.
Marbach exhibited its latest developments at its stand. The Marbach Turner, a thermoformed cup with a resealable screw cap, was the main attraction at the Marbach stand. But also the Marbach tool MT|easy speed attracted the attention of the visitors. Marbach Area Sales Manager Martin Dörr: "Our attendance at Interplastica was extremely successful. The atmosphere at the fair was very good and the interest in our innovations was considerable. Discussions with visitors provided many new starting points and challenges. In addition to making many new contacts, maintaining long-standing customer relationships was an important part of our trade fair strategy. Because continuous partnerships lead to strategic advantages and a win-win situation, since well-established teams can react faster and better to new market demands. "
The next Interplastica will take place in January 2019.
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.
