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 has been a specialist for the production of cutting-dies for the packaging industry for many decades. In addition, the Marbach portfolio also includes tools for special technical solutions. One of which is the production of cutting-dies with particularly high cutting rules.
In May of this year, Marbach launched its new lower pin unit with high precision lower pins. This is mainly used for jobs where very small amounts of waste have to be stripped and where requirements for die-cut blanks to be waste-free are very high. With the lower pin unit, waste is stripped very safely in these areas of application. In the last months, several customers have already been using the new Marbach technology. Customer feedback has been consistently positive.
Marbach is working at full speed on various digitalization and Industry 4.0 projects.
