Marbach Tool Manufacturing (Werkzeugbau) supplies customers worldwide with thermoforming tools for the packaging industry. As a result, the company can be found at trade fairs around the globe. This was also the case at the 9th International Plastic Fair (IPF) in Japan which took place from 24th to 28th October 2017 in Tokyo, Japan.
Almost 800 international exhibitors presented their products and services for the plastics industry on 54,000 m² of exhibition space. The main focus was on raw materials and additives, injection moulding and thermoforming machines, components and tools, as well as production and further processing. The fair, which is held every three years, attracted around 45,000 visitors.
Thomas Reinhardt, Director of Sales for the Asian region at Marbach: "For us, the IPF in Tokyo was a complete success. With the company Gabler, our partner for many years, and from whom we recently purchased an M98 Maxx for our Heilbronn Headquarters, we had a joint stand on site. This was, of course, very practical, since it was possible to utilize mutual synergies and showcase ourselves with our combined competence. All our Japanese customers visited us at the fair. So, we were able to hold many interesting discussions and deepen our customer loyalty. The feedback from the visitors was consistently positive. For these reasons, we plan to be there again in three years."
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.
