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!
We produce special tools for corrugated board rotary machines with active stripping technology. Such machines are gaining ground in various countries.
With the mplaten|cleaner, Marbach Die Supplies offers a cleaning device that cleans the cutting platen quickly and safely. This ensures efficient die-cutting processes in packaging production.
We have published a new whitepaper on our knowledge platform, the Experience Hub, with the topic "The future is digital: How to increase the performance of your die-cutting processes through digitization."
With the "universal sheet delivery", we feature a special tool technology in our portfolio that is used for small orders or where you do not want to use blanking for a job but still attach importance to efficiency. The universal sheet delivery is used in the upper part of a blanking station to perfectly stack die-cut sheets.
