Exhibitors and trade visitors are eagerly awaiting the 27th Fakuma – International Trade Fair for Plastics Processing – from October 12 to 16, 2021, in Friedrichshafen, Germany. In addition to the further development in the digital transformation in the plastics processing industry, the change from a linear to a circular economy is the focus of the outstanding trade fair event.

All industry players in the plastics manufacturing and plastics processing industries urgently await Fakuma as a presence trade fair from October 12 to 16, 2021 in Friedrichshafen. “The exhibitors finally want to present their innovations live again,” says Bettina Schall, Managing Director of P.E. SCHALL GmbH & Co. KG. “That’s why users and customers are looking forward to the real-life presentation of new products and technological solutions.” As a widely recognized top trade event in injection molding, extrusion technology, thermoforming and 3D printing, Fakuma aims to show that a lot has happened both in terms of machine and product development as well as process improvements.

Responsibility for the future - our own and that of the next generation

German plastics processors face various challenges arising from change at different levels: Increasing digitalization and automation is an opportunity for better processes, higher plant availability, more efficiency and more productivity. At the same time, the industry is intensively addressing the transformation from a linear to a circular economy. Companies in the plastics industry are highly committed to taking responsibility both for their products and for the products that are manufactured on their machines and systems; thus, in addition to working on their own future, there is also a commitment to the future viability of future generations. Plastics recycling and the circular economy are hot topics worldwide, both within the industry itself and among users and the general public. “The plastics industry – both plastics manufacturers, processors, plastics machine builders and also users – has never had to deal with forward-looking issues and sustainable solution approaches as intensively as it is currently doing,” Bettina Schall notes.

Outstanding business platform for the industrial plastics processing sector

Project Manager Annemarie Schur announced. “Everyone is getting ready to discuss and exchange ideas in person at eye level again. We are taking care of everything necessary in terms of organization and implementation.” Thus, nothing more stands in the way of Fakuma as an outstanding, exciting trade fair event on the part of the trade fair organizer. Until the deadline on October 12-16, 2021, the Fakuma-Virtuell platform will be available to all users as a useful tool around the clock and will maintain professional contact between suppliers and users.
