February 2023: We moved to a new office a little outside of Nuremberg
On the 1st of February, we moved to a new office in Eckental. It is a small town in the northeast of Nuremberg, it is the hometown of Daniel and only 20 minutes away by car.
This new site offers us two major advantages: The roof is covered with solar panels which allows us to run our computers and charge our electric cars more sustainably. In addition, we now have 5 office rooms instead of only 3 for our colleagues so that they can provide support and do online software demonstrations in an undisturbed environment.
Our phone numbers and bank account remain the same, so nothing changes for our customers.
December 2022: We remain successful in 2022
Another year of unexpected global challenges has finally passed. Fortunately, the corrugated industry seems to defy these challenges pretty well. This allowed dr.corr to steadily continue its growth path.
We thank our great team and our motivated partners for 23 new installations in 6 different countries. This allows us to proudly announce that dr.corr is now serving 100 plants in 18 different countries worldwide...
October 2022: Feedback from a client a good year after the launch of dr.corr
In July 2021, dr.corr was installed at Cartodelta in Tarragona, Spain, by our project engineer Giulio Fantini.
A good year later, Josep Maria Profitós, the general director of Cartodelta, S.L. in Spain is summarizing the success of working with dr.corr as follows:
“The team behind dr.corr allows the customer to have an innovative system with a graphic design that makes the planner’s work easy and intuitive for the operators at the machines.
The added value of dr.corr compared to its competitors is ... .”
September 2022: New in dr.corr:
Benchmarking of Conversion Machines
Wouldn’t it be good to know how your conversion machine performs in comparison to the same machine in other plants?
In case other plants manage to work with the same machine more efficiently, wouldn’t it be good to share experiences and learn from others?
Benchmarkings are a good way to compare performances and to determine best practice examples.
If you are willing to share anonymized data of your machine, you will also gain access to anonymized key performance indicators (KPIs) from other machines of the same type in the dr.corr universe.
May 2022: New in dr.corr:
Machine Load Forecast
If you regularly find yourself confronted with such questions, dr.corr is offering a tool that provides you with a detailed forecast of the future machine load in your factory.
December 2021: The End of a Successful Year
Despite the worldwide pandemic, the dr.corr team has had a very successful and busy year 2021.
We thank the employees in our 77 customer plants for their trust and support.
We also thank our ambitious and motivated team for 26 new installations within this year in 12 different countries in Europe and South America, half of them being plants with a corrugator.
The software itself continues to grow and now includes a drcorr.live application, a forecast module for the machine load, pallet output in corrugator scheduling, a holding area, a capacity reservation feature, a multiple monitor option for planners and a graphical truck loading algorithm. In addition, dr.corr started this year to offer the possibility to measure and report the energy consumption of the machines in your plant.
With several plants already in the pipeline, we are looking forward to 2022.
Sept. 1st, 2021: Graciela Domínguez Bersoza joins our team

March 2021: We did it!
dr.corr connected to three corrugators on the same week, in three different countries, and all were live and on-line on Monday!
Papier Karl GmbH in Germany started production on their all new Fosber corrugator, at Steirerpack in Austria we linked to their tried and proven Agnati machine, while at Glomma Papp AS in Norway, the connection was established to their Escada dry end controller.
Congratulations to Daniel Weigand, Dessislava Vintcheva, Steffen Beeth and Giulio Fantini who excelled at their jobs once more!

👍 A corrugator scheduled by dr.corr is a happy corrugator!
December 2020: The End of a Successful Year
