Marbach Tool Manufacturing, one of the leading producers of thermoforming tools for the plastics industry, presented some innovations from its product portfolio at the Thin Wall Packaging Asia in Singapore. Since the Thin Wall Packaging Cologne has been an important event in the industry for years, the Thin Wall Packaging Asia took place for the second time. And already it is the most important event for thin wall packaging in the Asian region. On the 18th and 19th of September, the “Who's Who” in the packaging industry for thin wall plastics met in Singapore. 100 participants came to the congress to listen to lectures, to take part in workshops and to network.
Marbach's presentation consisted of an information table and a lecture. In the latter, Thomas Reinhardt, Director of Sales Asia at Marbach, introduced the latest Marbach tool technologies as well as recommendations for more efficient processes. The highlight of the presentation was an innovative thermo-formed packaging that is re-closable: the Marbach in-house development Turner. Thomas Reinhardt: “We at Marbach take care of more than just the tools. But also of the whole process: because not only the tools and article development are important for good thermoforming results, but also processing and the consistent use of good foil material. With our know-how we are able to support our customers in all these areas. To achieve best performance in thermoforming.”
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.
