Marbach Werkzeugbau GmbH, a Heilbronn, Germany-based thermoforming toolmaker, is set to exhibit some new products at Interplastica in Moscow Jan. 23 to Jan. 26.

Among those innovations is the company’s Turner thermoformed cup with a reclosable screw cap, similar to the metal lid on a jam jar.

“What makes Turner so special is that, up to now, such closures could only be manufactured with complex tooling techniques that required compromises in product design,” says Marbach of the new product. “The Marbach solution is simpler, because the Turner can be thermoformed with a standard tool with a round-cutting geometry.”

Also at Interplastica, the company will display its MT|easy speed, a tool in match-metal technology.

“With MT|easy speed, our customers benefit from verifiable performance improvements,” says Hubert Kittelmann, the company’s sales manager. “The significantly reduced tool weight and the special solid body structure relieve the load on the drives of the production machine. Moreover, the aluminum construction ensures that the thermal conductivity of MT|easy is many times better than that of steel. This significantly reduces the cooling time at critical points of the product for high cycle numbers and more output.”
