25th Fakuma Ready to Go
When the doors open at the Friedrichshafen Exhibition Centre on Lake Constance tomorrow, 17th of October, the region where three nations meet will once again be focused entirely on plastics technology through the 21st of October, 2017.
With the Fakuma international trade fair for plastics processing, being held this year for the 25th time, private trade fair promoters P.E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG will set the next new record on the occasion of the anniversary event: A full house with more than 1800 exhibitors from 37 countries and full occupancy of all exhibition floor space, as well as the foyers of the Friedrichshafen Exhibition Centre – with 85,000 square meters (915,000 square feet) of overall exhibition floor space, maximum occupancy has been reached with the current hall layout.
Fakuma’s anniversary edition will offer an interesting supplementary programme including, amongst other things, the well-known exhibitor forum, as well as a Recruiting, Basic and Further Training Day (Wednesday, October 18). Throughout the four days of the trade fair there will be 38 individual presentations (including six on the issues of recruiting, basic and further training), which will deal with aspects such as requirements for high-performance polyamides, close-to-contour mold temperature control and increased productivity with tool coatings, as well as the benefits and opportunities of digitization.
25 editions of Fakuma are above all 36 years of industrial development for the processing of plastics as well, which have lived through numerous technological highs – as well as acceptance lows – during this period of nearly four decades. Without a doubt, the innovations and optimizations presented at the respective Fakuma trade fairs, for example rising levels of production efficiency and at the same time the conservation of resources and reduced energy consumption, as well as increased recycling, have made a strong contribution to objectifying discussions concerning all aspects of plastics.
