The Heilbronn-based manufacturer of thermoforming tools, Marbach, was represented at the first Thermoforming Web.talk on May 5 with Sales Manager Hubert Kittelmann as moderator & host. The first event of a whole series of virtual talk rounds was organized by the European Thermoforming Division of SPE.
The talk that was lead by Hubert Kittelmann (Marbach) and Sven Engelmann (Illig) was all about the latest industry trends, the latest developments in recycling opportunities and different approaches to sustainability from material innovations to end-of-life choices. These topics were highlighted 4 different presentations. Starting with “Announcement for 2022 Conference Presentation” by Paul Earnshaw from TESCO, followed by “Introducing the Plastic Bank Philosophy” by David Katz from Plastic Bank and “Closing the Loop for PP Recycling – Technology update” by Prof. Ed Kosior from NextLoop and finished with “New Design Guide – Creating Circularity in Food Packaging” by Thomas Drustrup & Thomas Bak Thellesen from Faerch/Danish Plastic Fed.

The next webtalks will be coming from the SPE Conference in Grand Rapids / USA in September this year. We will focus on “smart manufacturing strategies”. A subject where Marbach will certainly have valuable input for you. – stay tuned!
Marbach has decided to cooperate with laser solutions specialist Cutlite Penta. In a development cooperation, Marbach will work with Cutlite Penta to create an optimized laser program that will meet the Marbach Group's high demands for laser systems.
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies (MDS) includes machines, equipment as well as materials for diemaking. However, MDS does not only supply diemakers, but also packaging manufacturers with materials for daily needs as well as equipment and machines for the diecutting environment. One of the latest additions to the portfolio are the mbench|smart and mbench|pro workbenches.
Marbach supplies packaging manufacturers of folding boxes and corrugated packaging with tools and also offers them a wide range of die-cutting services. In this context, the topic of digitalization and Industry 4.0 is an important part of the current development work - both in tooling technology and in the services of the corporate group. However, not only Marbach's portfolio is becoming increasingly digital, but also its communication.
