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.
Marbach is already involved in its planning for the most important international trade fair for the printing industry: drupa 2020. And now there is only 1 year left until drupa opens its doors again. The last drupa was very special for Marbach: with the number of visitors reaching record levels. No previous drupa had more visitors at the Marbach stand than in 2016.
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.
