Marbach Tool Manufacturing (Werkzeugbau) has in recent months increasingly sold tools with the Mafox|F system. This means that customers' demand for this Marbach technology has been growing significantly.
Clamp rings have an important influence in the thermoforming process. Mainly on the characteristics of the article edge. The more precise the clampring according to sealing rim design to the desired article shape, the better the product will be. That is why Marbach has developed the Mafox|F. This is an exchangeable clamp ring, with which different cup designs of sealing rims can be quite easily produced with the same tool. With the Mafox|F, clamp rings can be optimally matched to the product that is to be manufactured. Different foil thicknesses in one tool are also possible without time-consuming clamp ring changes.
Marbach Director of Sales Asia Thomas Reinhardt: “We have in the meantime equipped more than 10 tools with Mafox|F. The feedback from our customers has been very positive. The major difference is that Marbach is changing a tall barrel looking like part and not only a small ring at the downholder front. This allows uninterrupted fast cooling of the clamp ring, and thus ensures a perfect rapid cooling of the sealing rim, which in turn counteracts the lifting up of the edge." The results are high-quality plastic cups.
But it's not only the cup quality that is important with Mafox|F, but also the production speed. Because when this Marbach technology is used in combination with an MT|easy aluminum cutting plate or the sandwich steel plate system, it is possible to implement quickly replaceable seal bead contours in the tool without speed reductions.
Marbach has been offering training courses at its academy for almost 2 years. Under the motto "Marbach Academy. More knowledge. More skills." Marbach teaches important know-how about die-cutting packaging in practice-oriented training courses. Marbach held numerous training courses in 2019.
Marbach has recently expanded its production capacity in Poland. In addition to two already established plants in Tarnowskie Góry and Kielce, another plant in Poznan has become part of the globally active Marbach Group since September 2019.
Marbach is known for its manufacture of tools for the production of packaging. What is less well known is that Marbach also offers high-precision tools for a wide range of technical requirements.
Marbach has responded to the increasing demand for its die-cutting platen cleaning device by launching a revised version into the market. With this, it is now possible to clean machines where previously the Marbach machine could not be used due to lack of space.
