Marbach Werkzeugbau is fully prepared for the forthcoming K trade fair. The fair will take place from 16 to 23 October 2019 in Duesseldorf. On 94 square meters Marbach will present to visitors its innovations from the fields of digitization, industry 4.0 and tool technologies.
Hubert Kittelmann, Marbach Sales Manager: "Our preparations for the fair are almost complete and we are looking forward to the start of the fair."
Marbach will take a large step into the digital future with its innovations CONNECT|M and CONNECT|AR. CONNECT|M is a technology that intelligently connects thermoforming tools, Marbach and customers. In addition, Marbach is part of a digital customer support project within CONNECT|AR (Augmented Reality).
Kittelmann continues: "Together with machine manufacturers, the European Thermoforming Division and producers of thermoformed end products, we want to engage with a new dimension of customer support aided by AR glasses. These new products ensure maximum performance for our customers in the production of plastic packaging."
In addition, Marbach will present to the many expected visitors its 360° service, as well as innovations in its product range and, not least, its new small parts catalog with extended portfolio.
The Marbach stand with the latest company news will be located in Hall 3 Stand C35.
Marbach now provides on its new Experience Hub exclusive content and information for interested parties from the packaging industry. In addition to videos, animations and digital brochures, visitors of this page can also download white papers on important industry-specific topics and make direct appointments with a Marbach contact person. Marbach specialists will answer questions via email, chat or phone.
Once again this year Marbach will follow in a long-established tradition: Marbach will make Christmas donations to two aid projects under the motto “donations instead of presents”. When selecting the recipients of the donations, it has been important to the Marbach Management to split the money between internationally well-known and regionally respected institutions. This year, Marbach has donated 7,000 Euro to "Help - Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe e.V." and an additional donation of 3,000 Euro to the "Tafeln Heilbronn" (a food distribution charity). Due to the current pandemic situation, however, the handover of the donations was different than usual this year. One of the donations was handed over online, the other with face masks and at a distance.
In November Marbach participated in the new virtual trade show ConneXion. During the 4 weeks of the ConneXion exhibition large numbers of visitors informed themselves about news in the packaging industry. Marbach presented its latest new developments for more performance in packaging production.
Marbach is represented at its Heilbronn headquarters by two divisions: Die Cutting Technology and Thermoforming Tool Manufacturing. But a product which directly connects these two divisions is SR technology (steel rule technology). This is because the Die Cutting Technology division supplies the Thermoforming Tool manufacturing division, and many other thermoforming manufacturers worldwide, with special steel-rule dies.
