Marbach tool manufacturing has developed a special eye-catcher for the K trade fair: a screw top for thermoformed plastic packaging. Comparable to the familiar metal lid of a jam jar.
Marbach Sales Manager Hubert Kittelmann: “We wanted to create a very special packaging for the K. An innovative one that would trigger ideas in visitors for products that have to be packed – also outside our focus sector: traditional food - in the area of dairy and lipids. As we have seen: this has been successful. The screw top of our Turner packaging received excellent feedback and visitors were fascinated by it. Its functionality totally convincing. Ideas about possible uses for our cup flowed continuously from customers. Our Turner packaging also lent impetus to the research and development department after the exhibition. And in the meanwhile numerous tests have already been made by our customers.”
But not only the functionality of our innovation was convincing. But also the unobtrusiveness and simplicity of the Marbach system received much appreciation. Because until now, such kinds of seals could only be manufactured elaborately with complex tool technology – and required significant compromises in the product design. For that reason previous models couldn’t be established on the market.
Kittelmann continues: “ The Marbach solution is simpler. Far simpler. Our packaging can be thermoformed by a standard tool with round cutting geometry. And the screw top works perfectly. We look forward to the implementation of the many enquiries during the next months
Marbach is already involved in its planning for the most important international trade fair for the printing industry: drupa 2020. And now there is only 1 year left until drupa opens its doors again. The last drupa was very special for Marbach: with the number of visitors reaching record levels. No previous drupa had more visitors at the Marbach stand than in 2016.
Marbach has continuously expanded its services in the past year. The newest member of the Marbach service family is the Marbach Performance Boost package. By which, Marbach supports its consulting service which makes its own process know-how available to its customers and thereby significantly increasing their productivity during the die-cutting process.
Marbach has been using for some time now a new rubber for rubbering cutting-dies. The name of this high-performance material is flexpower. Certified by ISEGA for use in the food industry, this rubber offers numerous advantages to operators. Marbach uses flexpower in corrugated board tools (both flat and rotary) and also sells it as raw material.
Marbach is one of the large material suppliers in Germany. Under the name Marbach Die Supplies, Marbach offers materials for packaging manufacturers that meet the requirements in the field of die-cutting. In order to support its customers even more in increasing their performance, Marbach has expanded its material portfolio.
