Fakuma Friedrichshafen

17. - 21. October 2023 | International trade fair for plastics processing

The Fakuma is one of the leading trade fairs in the field of plastics processing, which takes place every two years in Friedrichshafen, that provides an ideal event base with its location in the border triangle Switzerland, Austria, Germany. As a meeting place of the industry, the Fakuma has established itself internationally and provides an overview of the entire plastics technology, whether injection molding, extrusion or thermoforming. Here any visitor can receive specific information on all plastics editing and processing relevant processes, machines and tools. Always is the practice in focus when the exhibitors present the complete process chain for the economic manufacturing of plastics parts. In general, this fair is characterized by a wide range of processing equipment and related peripherals. Due to the increasing integration of the plastics manufacturing in the production processes, a key issue is placed on automation facilities, which are leading together with handling and assembly systems to flexible production systems. In general, the Fakuma has a very high level and shows wealth of expertise. It provides experts with outstanding contacts and information and will be complemented by forums, workshops and special shows.

On the whole the organisers welcomed on the 5 days of the fair, from 16. October to 20. October 2018, about 1933 exhibitors from 40 countries and 47650 visitors on the Fakuma in Friedrichshafen.
