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 was recently visited by its customer Å&R Carton Lund AB for an audit. Å&R Carton looked closely at Marbach from a number of viewpoints and certified Marbach with a very good performance.
With its marbanick|2 for paperboard tools, Marbach has brought a hand tool onto the market that convinces users with its flexibility and simplicity. Since its introduction in May 2018, Marbach has sold almost 200 of these hand-held devices.
Marbach expands its Die Supplies & Automation division. From 01 February 2019, André Angermeir joins the Marbach team as the new Sales Manager. With Angermeir, Marbach has been able to gain an industry insider with a wealth of experience in the world of cutting-dies.
Marbach expands further. After having opened die production facilities in the USA, Malaysia and China in the past years, Marbach will open a Marbach Die Supplies subsidiary in Mexico in January. From here Marbach will supply materials to Mexican and North American die and packaging manufacturers. In addition, training in the application of technologies will be offered. Marbach's goal is to support the Mexican market in its further development.
