Marbach Werkzeugbau (Tool Manufacturing) will participate at the Thin Wall Packaging USA in Chicago. The conference for thin-wall packaging solutions will take place from 20th to 21st March 2018 in Chicago. It covers the main technologies such as thermoforming as well as injection, blow and compression molding. The concept of the Thin Wall Conference was established in Cologne, Germany, and has now, after great success in Europe, been introduced to the US and Asia as well.
Hubert Kittelmann, Head of Sales at Marbach: “Marbach supports the industry event as a headline sponsor and will present papers on new technologies such as the match-metal tool concept MT|easy or the new packaging solutions such as the Marbach Turner. Both were the leading topics at the last Thin Wall Packaging event in Cologne, which has been a great success for us.“ The Thin Wall Packaging conferences always offer unique networking opportunities in the light weight plastic packaging industry. Here, the leading food companies, retailers, packaging manufacturers, researchers, and suppliers of the industry come together to debate the latest developments and market trends.
Kittelmann continues: “We look forward to the upcoming event in the US. It is always interesting to see what ideas, approaches and questions emerge in the different regions.“
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.
