Koenig & Bauer Durst enjoyed success with show-goers at SuperCorrExpo, one of the most influential corrugated packaging-focused trade shows in the Western Hemisphere, which was held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando in August. The firm’s experts were on hand to answer prospective customer questions and provide information on its latest products and developments for the corrugated market.
‘We were excited to join this event and visit with attendees who came to our booth to explore how Koenig & Bauer can support their corrugated printing needs,’ said Jürgen Gruber, Product Manager Digital & Corrugated Printing Technology for Koenig & Bauer US. ‘Our new CorruCUT HQPP brings a maximum production output of 12,000 boards per hour, including setup while running, integrated remote maintenance for the ultimate uptime, and the easiest machine to operate. It generated a lot of interest at our booth due to its revolutionary new innovations. We are deeply committed to our corrugated customers and are supporting them with our complete portfolio of corrugated products.’
The booth drew attendees who were especially keen to learn more about the inkjet products from Koenig & Bauer Durst, especially its CorruJET 170 and Delta SPC 130 FlexLine Automatic corrugated production press.
