The National Plastics Exhibition (NPE) takes place every 3 years in Orlando. The who’s who of the global plastics industry will meet in 2018 from 7 to 11 May. As a specialist for the production of thermoforming tools, Marbach will again be exhibiting there this year and presenting its latest developments.
On its booth W3689 Marbach will reveal its most modern techniques in the field of match-metal. The highlight will be the world's largest tilting tool on a Gabler M100.
In addition to current match-metal tool applications, Marbach will also be presenting its innovations in steel-rule technology. Using various products, Marbach will prove the advantages of different technologies and demonstrate them effectively to the audience. In addition, with interested visitors the tool-maker will discuss a new type of hybrid technology, which is currently still in the testing phase. Marbach general sales manager Hubert Kittelmann: "This year we will have a very special surprise for visitors at our stand. They will learn on the spot how a clean cut with a Marbach tool turns out to be a "piece of cake". We look forward to many visitors."
Marbach recently launched a new system under the name Embossing Register System IV. This allows embossing plates to be set up quickly and easily on embossing dies. With the Marbach system, users can save time when setting up the embossing dies and thus reduce machine downtimes.
Marbach has made a successful start to the new year with its Marbach Academy. In the first quarter of 2019, there were training courses on the subjects of paperboard and cigarette packaging as well as several individual training courses for customers.
Our US location in Charlotte is developing very positively. Following the start of production in 2012, Marbach America has grown into a stable revenue generator within the globally active Marbach Group. In order to be able to serve its customers even better, Marbach America has invested in a laser system of the latest generation. In March 2019 a laser system of the type mlas|compact-2 was installed at Marbach America.
Marbach is on course for expansion. After Marbach has founded subsidiaries in the USA, Malaysia, China and Mexico in the recent years, a second location in the USA will follow this summer. Since 2012 Marbach is already represented with a production site in Charlotte, North Carolina.
