Marbach will participate in the digital drupa 2021. After the organizer, Messe Duesseldorf, cancelled drupa 2021 due to the current unforeseeable pandemic situation, the originally planned on-site exhibition will be replaced by a 4-day online program. This online event will take place from April 20-23, 2021.
Tina Dost, Marketing Manager at Marbach: "Frankly, we had expected drupa 2021 to be cancelled. After numerous exhibitors had withdrawn their participation in recent months it was expected that the number of international visitors would decrease significantly. We therefore consider the cancellation a good and correct decision by Messe Duesseldorf. drupa lives because of its international character and the fact that it is a unique global meeting place for the packaging industry. This status would have been more than threatened by travel restrictions and the uncertainty caused by COVID-19."
Marbach will participate in the virtual version of drupa and provide online visitors with exciting information about die-cutting of packaging. On the virtual platform, the online areas "Exhibition Space", "Conference Area" and "Networking Plaza" will digitally link the visitors with the exhibitors.
The next stationary drupa will take place from May 28 to June 7, 2024.
Marbach not only manufactures tools for flat die-cutting machines, but also for rotary die-cutting machines. For rotary die-cutting of corrugated board, the trend is towards the use of rotary machines with active stripping technology. Marbach has developed specially equipped rotary tools for this purpose, which ensure high productivity on such machines.
Marbach offers a very extensive portfolio of cutting-dies. Marbach also produces tools for die-cutting very thick materials such as honeycomb corrugated board. Such materials place very special demands on the technology used.
Silvio Gruber, who has been responsible for the corrugated board division at Marbach, has gone into well-earned retirement shortly before Christmas. Until his recent retirement, Mr. Gruber worked for Marbach in various management positions for a period of 37 years.
