Marbach Werkzeugbau (tool manufacturing) took part in the first formal CTFA (China Thermoforming Association) information event in Shanghai on 23 April. This date was chosen because numerous thermoforming experts were on-site in Shanghai for the immediately- following Chinaplas, which took place from 24 to 27 April.
At the formal meeting there were several technical presentations from the supporting companies. The representatives of the SPE associations from the USA and Europe provided an overview of the market and a wide range of information concerning prospects in the different markets. Further topics were international exchange and the concept development of a thermoforming valley in China.
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.
