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 provides solutions to ensure top performance for its customers. In order to make packaging more attractive and to visually highlight individual elements of packing, the embellishment process of embossing is often used. As an eye-catcher, it increases the impact of a package at the point of sale. This then has a sales-promoting effect for the packaged product. If the embossing process is not integrated into the die-cutting process but is carried out separately, this is known as embossing and die-cutting in two passes. This is more time-consuming than an embossing process integrated into the die-cutting process. But here, too, set-up times can be minimized.
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies (MDS) includes machines, equipment and materials for diemaking. In particular, MDS has expanded its range of manual devices in recent months. Among the most popular of these is the mcut|multi multifunctional cutting tool. It cuts rule materials quickly and without deformation. Plastika Mostar in Slovenia is already using mcut|multi and is very impressed.
Marbach supports its customers in producing packaging that stands out at the point of sale. One popular method for visually enhancing and refining packaging is embossing. This can be used to highlight individual elements in particular.
More information about embossing and the free white paper can be found on the Marbach Experience Hub.
Marbach Die Supplies, offers a comprehensive portfolio of materials and equipment for die-cutting. Marbach supplies manufacturers of packaging as well as manufacturers of cutting-dies. As of now, there are new product catalogs from Marbach Die Supplies for each of these two fields.
