Masterwork Machinery GmbH in Neuss near Düsseldorf is a 100% subsidiary of Masterwork Group Co., Ltd. in Tianjin, China. We are a successor company of Jagenberg Diana GmbH and of the folding carton gluing division of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG.

Within the Masterwork Group, we are responsible for research and development of folding carton gluing and related machines. Nearly all of our employees have a technical qualification in the field of mechanical or electrical engineering. As a research and development site, we also have a large test facility with its own folder gluers.

Our Diana folder gluers are produced in our factory in Nové Mesto nad Váhom in Slovakia.

Our Diana folder gluers are sold through the sales and service network of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG, except in China and Japan, where we operate our own sales and service companies.


A brief history recap!

Nearly a century of experience has been incorporated into our folder gluers, which have been sold under the Diana brand for almost 60 years.

The story of our folder gluers began almost 100 years ago at Jagenberg in Düsseldorf. About 60 years ago, the Diana brand was introduced. Known throughout the world, this name stands for folder gluers of superior quality. In 2003, Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG took over the folder gluer division of Jagenberg and further developed the Diana folder gluers until 2015. At the end of 2015, the division was taken over by MK Masterwork in Tianjin, China’s market leader for processing machines. Over the years, the quality of the Diana folder gluers was consistently raised by these three leading engineering companies. In 2017, just one year after the acquisition by MK Masterwork, the new Diana Easy folder gluer was introduced, complementing the product range, which also includes the Diana X and the Diana Smart.

The Diana Go folder gluer was launched in March 2019. Well suited as an entry-level machine and for standard production in modern folding carton lines. In June 2019 MK Masterwork acquired the entire know-how of Demel Robotik, thus expanding its activities in automation for the packaging industry.
