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 employs 1,500 people worldwide. As an employer Marbach attaches great importance to the health of its employees. Therefore, the company decided to offer its employees attractive bicycle leasing in 2017 at its headquarter in Heilbronn. Recently the 150th bicycle has been leased from Marbach.
Marbach is known in the market for providing individual solutions. So far, manual top knives have not been part of Marbach's portfolio. However, as customer requirements for high-precision manual top knives have become more and more demanding, Marbach has intensively dealt with this topic. The result is tools manufactured in a new production process which optimally meets customer requirements for more precision.
Marbach uses numerous dieboards for its cutting-dies. Depending on the requirements of the order, suitable dieboard material is selected in coordination with the customer. For high demands on the dimensional stability and service life of a tool, the Marbach portfolio includes various dimensionally stable dieboards.
With its innovation pure edge Marbach ensures satisfaction of packaging manufacturers and brand owners. This technology stands for beautiful visible edges for corrugated board packaging and so for sales-boosting presentation of branded products at the point of sale. In addition, pure edge impresses with its durability and permanently consistent die-cutting results.
