Marbach Werkzeugbau was represented at the 7th Thin Wall Packaging Conference in Chicago in 2018. This event took place on March 20 and 21.
The Thin Wall Packaging Conference is characterized by an exciting congress program as well as intensive exchange of experiences among participants. Since the founding of this conference, Marbach has been a major sponsor. In particular, Marbach seeks to demonstrate its competence there in the area of food packaging. Marbach General Sales Manager Hubert Kittelmann: "Here the close cooperation between Marbach and other technologies that compete with thermoforming, such as injection molding and the often combined in-mould labelling, are of benefit to us. We can best advise our customers for a secure future."
At this year's event, on the topic "Thermoforming 4.0" Marbach was able to convince visitors with a presentation on the current state of digital technology in thermoforming tools.
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.
