Marbach creates jobs in Michigan City

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.
In 2019 the Marbach Group opened another subsidiary of Marbach America in Michigan City, Indiana. Today - 10 months later - the new Marbach family member is well on its way to becoming a strong pillar of the globally active company group.
Marbach is offering a special tool for the quick set-up of embossing plates on embossing dies under the name Embossing Register System IV. With this tool users save time when setting up an embossing die and so reduce machine downtimes.
For several months now Marbach has been offering a new technology in its portfolio under the name of: Universal Sheet Delivery. After the great success of the Universal Sheet Delivery in the 102-106 format, Marbach now also offers this tool for large die-cutting machines in 142-145 format.
