Fakuma 2018 trade fair report

Best results in quality assurance

1,933 market and technology leaders from 40 countries, 47,650 industry visitors from all over the world – anyone who’s anyone in the world of plastics was in attendance at the 26th international trade fair for plastics processing “Fakuma” which took place from October 16 to 20, 2018. Without a doubt, the industry is booming. But not only is the demand for plastics increasing, but also the need for high-quality materials and processing. Including seamless quality assurance for components as part of the production process is therefore essential.

We learned the following at Fakuma: The requirements of plastics customers, such as the automotive industry, are becoming increasingly complex. However, it was clear to the trade visitors from a total of 126 countries who attended the fully sold-out Fakuma that the industry was up for the challenge. The exhibitors all seemed to agree on one thing: The expertise of the visitors was high, meaning the technical discussions were at a high level.

Fakuma was also a complete success for ZELTWANGER. As the expert in the field of leak testing, ZELTWANGER impressed with the innovative and field-tested ZED device family. “Seamless quality assurance is the be-all and end-all in plastics processing. Our flexible ZED solutions guarantee high process reliability and can be easily integrated into existing production processes. We offer reliable quality assurance in every production step,” says Steffen Nabholz, Sales Manager at ZELTWANGER Dichtheits- und Funktionsprüfsysteme GmbH.
