For three years now, Marbach has been one of the few diemakers to operate a die-cutting machine at its site in Heilbronn. The Eterna machine (formerly Brausse) is used for customer and employee training, for tests of in-house developments and also for customer projects with well-known brand owners. In July this year, Marbach and Eterna can look back on 3 years of successful cooperation.
Jan Brunner, Head of Business Development at Marbach: "We are very happy that we decided to invest in a die-cutting machine back then. During the last three years we have been able to carry out numerous projects and training and so optimally support our customers in their daily challenges. We are very satisfied with our die-cutting machine and will continue to use it in the coming years. Many thanks to Eterna for their great cooperation."
Michael Münchow, senior sales director folding boxes at Eterna, adds: "A lot has happened for us in past few years. Brausse has been re-marketed under the name Eterna (a BOBST Group company). For this reason the machine which is located at Marbach has received a new name. The Brausse 1060 ER is now called ECut 1060 elite ER. Cooperation with Marbach has been excellent from the very beginning. The chemistry was simply perfect."
Brunner: "Because tool specifications of the Eterna machines follow the BOBST Group standard exactly, and have a corresponding operating concept, most participants in our training courses can effectively implement taught methods and learning content, directly on their own company's die-cutting machines. This is why we decided to purchase this machine at that time. In the last few years we have increased and intensified our cooperation with Eterna. We are looking forward to further exciting joint projects."
Marbach not only manufactures tools for flat die-cutting machines, but also for rotary die-cutting machines. For rotary die-cutting of corrugated board, the trend is towards the use of rotary machines with active stripping technology. Marbach has developed specially equipped rotary tools for this purpose, which ensure high productivity on such machines.
Marbach offers a very extensive portfolio of cutting-dies. Marbach also produces tools for die-cutting very thick materials such as honeycomb corrugated board. Such materials place very special demands on the technology used.
Silvio Gruber, who has been responsible for the corrugated board division at Marbach, has gone into well-earned retirement shortly before Christmas. Until his recent retirement, Mr. Gruber worked for Marbach in various management positions for a period of 37 years.
