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 not only manufactures tools for flat die-cutting machines, but also for rotary die-cutting machines. For rotary die-cutting of corrugated board, the trend is towards the use of rotary machines with active stripping technology. Marbach has developed specially equipped rotary tools for this purpose, which ensure high productivity on such machines.
Marbach offers a very extensive portfolio of cutting-dies. Marbach also produces tools for die-cutting very thick materials such as honeycomb corrugated board. Such materials place very special demands on the technology used.
Silvio Gruber, who has been responsible for the corrugated board division at Marbach, has gone into well-earned retirement shortly before Christmas. Until his recent retirement, Mr. Gruber worked for Marbach in various management positions for a period of 37 years.
