Redesign ESU Magazine

Not only the homepage, but also our magazine has been revised. Less focus on general news from the packaging industry to more current issues directly affecting our members. The first issue 2018 and the following is about the great change in our industry, Industry 4.0.
And because we are “The European Diemaker Association”, and the pillars of this union are the national associations, the most important articles will be published in the languages of the national associations from the 01/2018 edition.


Your opinion, suggestion and criticism of the new magazine you can tell us here. Please use the comment function for this.

Revision of the homepage

We have revised our homepage a little bit. In the future, the interactivity and the faster accessibility of information will be in the foreground. Away from rigid views – to living information and communication pages. We would like to encourage registered members to leave their comments to the articles. The industry – and our diemaker industry – are changing. We will provide more information and discussions here in the future. Stay curious ….
