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 founded a new branch in Tianjin together with the machine manufacturer Masterwork in the summer of 2018. Cutting-dies for the Chinese folding box industry are mainly manufactured at this location. A few months later, Marbach started its new materials subsidiary in Mexico. A production facility in the USA will follow in the summer of 2019. At Marbach all signs point to expansion.
Since drupa 2016 Marbach has had digital zone levelling in its portfolio. Almost 400 machines have been equipped with a DZL|plate in the past 3 years. And the number is increasing every day.
Marbach is already involved in its planning for the most important international trade fair for the printing industry: drupa 2020. And now there is only 1 year left until drupa opens its doors again. The last drupa was very special for Marbach: with the number of visitors reaching record levels. No previous drupa had more visitors at the Marbach stand than in 2016.
Marbach has continuously expanded its services in the past year. The newest member of the Marbach service family is the Marbach Performance Boost package. By which, Marbach supports its consulting service which makes its own process know-how available to its customers and thereby significantly increasing their productivity during the die-cutting process.
