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 has added a new blanking tool to its product range. The alublanker is, as its name suggests, made of aluminum and completely CNC-milled. One of the first customers to use the alublanker is Marbach's long-standing partner MPS in Obersulm - a company of the Consumer Packaging Business of the WestRock Group. The Obersulm site produces high-quality folding cartons for the international perfume and cosmetics industry.
Marbach has published a new whitepaper for tobacco applications on its knowledge platform, the Experience Hub.
Marbach provides solutions to ensure top performance for its customers. In order to make packaging more attractive and to visually highlight individual elements of packing, the embellishment process of embossing is often used. As an eye-catcher, it increases the impact of a package at the point of sale. This then has a sales-promoting effect for the packaged product. If the embossing process is not integrated into the die-cutting process but is carried out separately, this is known as embossing and die-cutting in two passes. This is more time-consuming than an embossing process integrated into the die-cutting process. But here, too, set-up times can be minimized.
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies (MDS) includes machines, equipment and materials for diemaking. In particular, MDS has expanded its range of manual devices in recent months. Among the most popular of these is the mcut|multi multifunctional cutting tool. It cuts rule materials quickly and without deformation. Plastika Mostar in Slovenia is already using mcut|multi and is very impressed.
