Marbach can look back on an eventful 2018. The company, which is globally active, attended numerous exciting projects last year and presented at various plastics trade fairs throughout the world, its extensive portfolio in the field of thermoforming technology.
Packaging. Performance. You.
Marketing Manager Tina Dost: "2018 was another very exciting year for us. We worked on a number of product developments and launched them successfully on the market. Those who benefit are our customers, because they are able to increase performance in their packaging production."
Trade fairs and events
Marbach successfully participated in numerous trade fairs and events in 2018. From the Interplastica in Russia to the NPE in Orlando to the Chinaplas in Shanghai, Marbach was present at the world’s most important plastics fairs. In addition, the company participated as an exhibitor or with presentations at various Thinwall packaging events: the SPE in China and the Plastics & Rubber in Indonesia. Marbach was able to profitably use established networks in several follow-up projects. In 2019, the K trade fair will once more be the world's most important trade show for the plastics industry. Here too, Marbach is already in the starting blocks and has already initiated preparations.
Products Werkzeugbau (tool-making)
As an innovative company, Marbach once again presented numerous solutions in 2018 to increase the performance of its customers.
In addition to the further optimization of its MT|easy-speed technology with highest output rates, the Marbach Turner cup caused a sensation in the market with its special closure technology. In addition, Marbach's growing interest in combining thermoforming with IML has led to a number of customer projects that will be continued in 2019.
Another very important topic in the market is the boom in coffee capsules. Marbach therefore tested the world's largest tilting tool for coffee capsules in 2018 in cooperation with Gabler. Sales manager Hubert Kittelmann: "Even special functions in the upper and lower tool could be controlled with ease. Prepared for seamless integration into the world of industry 4.0, the tool has sensors that monitor all process parameters in real time using a modern system from the company Toolvision". Tests carried out prove that Marbach is well equipped for the future.
Investment in milling machines
The investment in two new milling machines creates the possibility to optimize the production. With the type KX30 machines from the Huron company, Marbach increased its flexibility in producing thermoforming and rotary tools.
New production control system
In addition to its existing ERP system, Marbach Werkzeugbau introduced a new software in 2018 under the name Time|M, which the company uses for detailed planning and
control of its production capacities and which makes it even more efficient. For the benefit of the customer.
Tina Dost: "An eventful year draws to an end. We are already looking forward to an equally exciting year 2019. With many new products. The K in Duesseldorf. And maximum performance. A big thank you to all our business partners for your amazing partnership."
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.
