Marbach Werkzeugbau tested the world's currently largest tool for coffee capsules on its new Gabler M98 Maxx thermoforming machine for the first time. The tests were carried out in the Marbach technical centre in Heilbronn.
The market for coffee capsules is booming. Always higher, always faster, always further. That is the motto. In cooperation with the company Gabler, the Heilbronn-based specialist for thermoforming tools recently tested the world's largest tool for coffee capsules. General Sales Manager Hubert Kittelmann: "Even special functions in the upper and lower tool could be confidently handled. Designed for seamless integration into the world of industry 4.0, the tool has sensors that monitor all process parameters in real time through a modern system from the company Toolvision."
The tests carried out show that Marbach is well prepared for the future.
There are many rotary machines for die-cutting corrugated board. The machines of the Japanese machine manufacturer Mitsubishi are currently making inroads in Europe. These machines place completely new demands on the tool technology used. Marbach has met the challenge and developed tools specially designed for these machines. For maximum productivity in rotary die-cutting.
The Joint Venture between Marbach and the Chinese machine manufacturer Masterwork has begun. Since July the company has been producing in China under the name Marbach Masterwork (Tianjin) Die Cutting Tools Co. Ltd., manufacturing cutting-dies for the national market. Besides its production in Malaysia, Marbach now has a second anchor in Asia. The range includes cutting-dies, stripping and blanking tools for the Chinese cigarette and folding carton industry.
Marbach supports its customers’ performance in their production. One customer who can confirm this is Manuel Nieto, Technical Manager at Quimica Comercial in Ecuador. Marbach and Quimica Comercial have been working together for two years. With great success. And with the support of Marbach, Quimica Comercial has been able to significantly increase its productivity.
In May Marbach presented its new hand-held device for inserting nicks in cutting rules. Since then, the marbanick|2 – which is the name of the new Marbach product – has been an outstanding success. With the new Marbach hand-held device, the size of the nick can be optimally adapted to the requirements of the user. The insertion of the nicks in different thicknesses is fast, safe and controlled.
