Fakuma fair celebrates its 25th anniversary

Fakuma_SliderThe Fakuma international trade fair for plastics processing is going to celebrate its 25th birthday. The exhibition willtake place from 17 to 21 October 2017 at the Friedrichshafen Exhibition Centre, Germany, and host 1700 exhibitors from 30 nations as the information, communication and procurement platform for plastics processing.

Although the product and service portfolios of the manufacturers and distributors (i.e. Fakuma’s exhibitors) have changed during the course of the years, injection moulding, extrusion and thermoforming technologies still make up the great majority of the exhibition offerings. From well-established and new materials, continuously optimised production processes and increasing functions integration, right on up to the portrayal of consistent processes or alternative 3D printing in industrial quality– Fakuma has often paved the way to new approaches for innovative solutions in plastics processing, and has thus repeatedly created new markets during its 24 sessions to date!

Challenges such as lightweight design, substitution of aluminium and steel and reduced consumption of materials and energy have lead, and are leading, to new developments in the field of plastics, entirely new material combinations, unconventional manufacturing process mixes, new tooling designs and much more – and they’re making their way from theory to practice, or from the developmental stage to industrial use, at trade fairs like Fakuma. Not excluding the possibility of going astray, developers, manufacturers and distributors at Fakuma explore the opportunities for their products and solutions, and alone that and nothing else is the primary concern, and thus the purpose of a trade fair!
