In June of this year, Kiefel were the proud hosts of the Packaging Dialogue Days. This event, which took place over the 26th and 27th of June, was hailed as a great success.

The event was run in both English and German, with day one dedicated to presentations in English and day two to presentations in German.  Presentations such as “Sorting solutions for plastics’ and “pioneering recycling technologies’ kicked off the talks and the first day ended with a welcome dinner. This dinner took place at the beautiful Schloss Leopoldskron in Salzburg, the original location for “The Sound of Music.” More than 130 experts from around the world joined the two-day event.

The main presentation topics were a circular economy, innovative thermoforming and the live launch of the new Kiefel Speedformer generation. The launch presentation of the new generation thermoforming system, the KMD 64.2 Speed, was undoubtedly the highlight of the show. This new machine is the most compact of the new KMD steel rule systems. Visitors were treated to a demonstration of the KMD Speedformer series.

Kiefel was pleased with the turnout and the success of the event; “Conversations with our customers were core to the event. Our experts provided a first-hand presentation of the latest technology and optimal procedures. In return, we learnt more about customer requirements and expectations. The Packaging Dialogue Days have established themselves as the ideal platform for this.”, said Erwin Wabnig, the Head of Packaging at Kiefel.
