Thanks to its growing internationalism and increasing popularity, the Fakuma trade fair in Friedrichshafen, Germany, is becoming increasingly favoured for the launch of new and innovative products from some of the plastics industry’s most notable companies.
This year, the sold-out 24th edition of the fair will see new unveilings, latest additions and extended ranges showcased to the public, across the spectrum of injection moulding, extrusion and thermoforming technologies and from exhibitors from a total of 35 countries.
Organisers, P.E. Schall GmbH, explained that the fair’s main theme would be a “user-oriented focus on the processing of plastics”, with efficiency and fast time-to-market favoured topics for exhibitors.
Within this context, additive manufacturing and 3D printing applications will make a prominent appearance at the fair, says Fakuma’s organiser, P.E. Schall GmbH, with the technology’s involvement in plastics manufacturing evolving from its use in the production of samples and prototypes to more accelerated processing applications.
“Time is money, and short time-to-market promises an advantage and thus more business success, for which reason the manufacturers and distributors will present a host of world’s firsts and innovative processes at Fakuma 2015,” said organisers.
So, whether you are visiting the fair, exhibiting or are simply watching from afar, we have picked the best of the news to keep you abreast of the latest developments in the industry, including new product launches, European debuts, system and technology updates and more.
