Marbach exhibited this year once again with huge success at the Interplastica trade fair in Moscow. This international exhibition for plastics and rubber took place between the 24th and 27th January 2017 at the Expo Center in Moscow.
Marbach presented its innovative thermoforming technology solutions at its 12 m² booth.
Primarily, Marbach showcased to the visitors in Russia its new tool MT|easy speed. Its special design provides significantly higher cycle numbers, with a life span extended 3-fold and a tool weight that is reduced by 33%.
The visitors were also informed in detail about the topic T-IML (thermoform in-mould labeling) by the Marbach booth team on-site. Marbach Head of Sales Hubert Kittelmann: “Enhancement of plastic packaging plays an ever increasing role. Top selling packaging is not only characterized by its functionality, but especially by its attractive appearance. The Marbach T-IML technology allows integration of in-mould labelling with the thermoforming process. And so in this way optimally refines the packaging.”
Marbach reveals a whole new level of forming and trimming with its steel-rule tools. These SR tools, that are produced in-house at Marbach cutting-die manufacturing, are characterized by their individuality and quality. Technologies such as the Flexi-Tab-System or the cutting rule Silverline 23.8 provide exactly the quality Marbach customers expect from a cutting-die. A modular system allows the customers to compile a tool package that meets their requirements perfectly. For all those unwilling to miss out on Marbach quality even with short runs, Marbach recommends the 'smart' version The 'performance' option is however the right choice for customers that have made production performance their top priority. And for all those customers with highest demands concerning the tool and its life span, and that are willing to invest in the future, they should choose 'performance+'.
Kittelmann: “The Interplastica was once again a huge success for us. Our new technologies have generated a lot of interest among the visitors. We are looking forward to the upcoming projects.
Marbach has revised its hand-held tool for the insertion of nicks in cutting rules. The new marbanick|2+ is impressive with its integrated quick-change function, through which wedges of different widths can be quickly changed. In addition, its special design makes it possible to use different impact levels in one device.
Marbach has a new technology in its portfolio. The universal sheet delivery is a tool with which sheet delivery in the die-cutting machine can be extended so that the delivery of the paperboard sheets can be quickly and easily adapted to each individual job.
Marbach Werkzeugbau is currently working intensively on the topics of digitization and industry 4.0. The main focus here is on digital solutions for tools, processes and services. Within the scope of this project, Marbach has analyzed the future requirements of its customers. The results of this are the two components CONNECT|M and CONNECT|AR (Augmented Reality). CONNECT|M is a technology that intelligently connects the thermoforming tool, Marbach and the customer. CONNECT|AR is about virtual customer support via remote maintenance.
Marbach offers an extensive portfolio of dieboards. The suitable dieboard can be selected according to the requirements of the customer or the particular order. The dieboard forms the basis of a cutting-die. The contours of the packaging are first inserted into the dieboard, then the cutting and creasing rules are positioned and finally the appropriate rubber coating is applied.
