In November Marbach participated in the new virtual trade show ConneXion. During the 4 weeks of the ConneXion exhibition large numbers of visitors informed themselves about news in the packaging industry. Marbach presented its latest new developments for more performance in packaging production.
Tina Dost, Marketing Manager at Marbach: "The participation at our first virtual trade show was very exciting for us. There were almost 600 visitors at our booth, a number of contacts could be made. It was interesting for us to see at this premiere how such an event works and, how it differs from an on-site trade show. We gained a lot of experience which we will evaluate and put to use in this coming year's events."
Packaging manufacturers, brand owners and suppliers came together at ConneXion. 24/7, visitors were able to obtain comprehensive information and also network with each other, independent of time constraints. All without travel expenses. In addition to the exhibitors' virtual booths, visitors were able to take part in a supplementary supporting program with webinars, live events, roundtable discussions and expert talks on current developments and trends in the packaging industry.
Marbach has decided to cooperate with laser solutions specialist Cutlite Penta. In a development cooperation, Marbach will work with Cutlite Penta to create an optimized laser program that will meet the Marbach Group's high demands for laser systems.
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies (MDS) includes machines, equipment as well as materials for diemaking. However, MDS does not only supply diemakers, but also packaging manufacturers with materials for daily needs as well as equipment and machines for the diecutting environment. One of the latest additions to the portfolio are the mbench|smart and mbench|pro workbenches.
Marbach supplies packaging manufacturers of folding boxes and corrugated packaging with tools and also offers them a wide range of die-cutting services. In this context, the topic of digitalization and Industry 4.0 is an important part of the current development work - both in tooling technology and in the services of the corporate group. However, not only Marbach's portfolio is becoming increasingly digital, but also its communication.
