In thermoforming, it is important that the tool is perfectly matched to the process and the product to be formed. Depending on the application, different attributes of the tool have to be taken into account in order to deliver perfect results.
Right from the start, we carry out batch tests on the article model. We optimize the stacking height and the gap between the products. Together with the perfectly shaped details on the article across all cavities, this ensures safe handling in manual and automated downstream processing.
The correct engineering of the tools ensures a fast, effective and symmetrical supply of all cavities with forming air. This ensures a wide processing window and thus process reliability."
Every product geometry poses new challenges for the design of the plug assist. Sheet variants, process settings and individual customer requirements for stability, transparency, weight and minimum sheet thicknesses in the corners make the perfect plug assist a valuable one-of-a-kind. Using the latest calculation programs and decades of experience, our experts select the right materials and develop optimized geometries for the best cup or bowl.
With the special hollow bottom function, the bottom of the cup is pressed into the cup body. This enables a particularly small diameter at the base of the cup and thus the possibility of printing the cup wall very far down in the best quality.
On the other hand, the sunken bottom can also be used as a membrane for pressure equalization. This technology is used in aviation or in countries with high mountains.
The Marbach hollow bottom technology enables the individual adjustment of the inverted height and thus a particularly precise filling volume.
The production of 100% salable goods is the most effective resource. We reduce plastic consumption through minimal spacing between the cavities in the mold, as well as through optimized sidewall distribution.
Marbach Air-Technology not only increases the molding speed, it also reduces the need for forming air by up to 80%. Step by step, day by day!
Things that should go together have to be well coordinated. Due to the special design of our thermoforming tools, a secure fit of the lid can be guaranteed even with varying film thicknesses of cups and bowls. The quality of the tool is reflected in the constancy of the production articles.
Packaging with special functions often requires that certain something extra. A perforation in the right place enables you to use tamper evidence. Or multi-portion containers for individual use and consumption.
With our patented 3D perforation technology, you form consistant and stable products for further downstream processing. In this way, products can be offered with added value.
Number of cycles, quality, material consumption up to the ""total cost of ownership"". Profitability can only be maximized if all requirements are optimally met. To get the maximum output from your system, you need the highest speeds. But also a solid technology, which allows the safe operation of the tools for years and decades and still produces products with the highest quality. The consistent focus on these requirements make Marbach tools an economically sensible investment. For over half a century!
The more complicated the products are, the more important the exact positioning and reliable function of a stacking system is. Our stacking components, which are precisely tailored to the tool and the article, allow all cavities to be transferred quickly and safely. Even with highly complicated products.
In order to be able to safely seal cups and bowls after filling, the sealing edge of each individual cup must exactly meet the specifications. Compliance with tight tolerances in the setting up of the seal edge and the seal edge thickness is essential for fast and effective sealing.
Marbach tools are characterized by a technology tailored to these requirements. We select the most suitable materials and optimize the cooling and geometry of the clamp rings for an optimized molding process and the fastest possible cooling.
Format parts and clamp ring crowns that can be exchanged with quick-release systems allow individual adjustments to product shapes and sheet thicknesses. For tools with better performance!
If necessary, our experienced designers will support you in developing and testing your products. We can validate your ideas and produce prototypes for you on our test machines in our technical center. For new products, we develop individually adapted solutions according to your requirements.
We can test different materials for you, verify shrinkage values and produce pilot tools and test quantities for further processing. Benefit from over half a century of experience in thermoforming!
We ensure compliance with the product requirements by measuring and validating the products. We determine the dimensional compliance of the functional dimensions in mechanical processes or by means of 3D scanning systems.
For statistical analysis, we can evaluate test series from your production, determine process settings and shrinkage values and thus optimize the production process together with your experts.
Various products require side and / or bottom venting. Just as important as reliable punching is the safe disposal of punching waste in unsupervised 24/7 production facilities. Marbach tools are specially designed for these requirements and thus allow safe operation of your tool investment. Layer after layer, day after day.
Thanks to precise tool guidance, high-precision cut parts and a stable tool build-up, Marbach tools achieve above-average service lives. These enable longer production cycles with the best cutting quality and reduce the costs for maintenance and spare parts procurement.
The patented R-RIM process is used with great success on fruit and meat trays made of PET and protects the individual cover film from unintentional tearing.
This gives you an overview of what and how your systems are producing at any time (and from any location). The system monitors productivity for you, and documents the quality of the manufactured products. This enables the parameters to be adjusted in real time and thus saves money and time for complex downstream quality checks. This enables them to document 100% quality assurance and traceability for their customers. Individually adjustable threshold values trigger a function chain when exceeded, and your experts can make targeted adjustments. Upon request, all parameters can also be shared with tool and machine experts, thus enabling professional assistance with the highest level of efficiency.
Using various key figures and visualized graphs, you can quickly track down deviations and analyze them in a targeted manner. This gives you important competitive advantages ... and permanently satisfied customers!

For functional purposes, it is often necessary to place a punch with a particularly precise fit. The specific shrinkage properties of plastics often make this impossible in downstream cutting equipment.
Marbach has therefore developed the CIP system for steel rule equipment. This can be precisely positioned in the forming process. The punching slugs are cut together with the outer trim.
