Fraunhofer ICT Attends FAKUMA (October 2015)

FAKUMA 2015Fraunhofer ICT attended the 24th FAKUMA International trade fair for plastics processing held in Friedrichshafen in Germany on 13th to 17th October 2015.

The fair which attracted around 1,780 exhibitors from 38 countries offered a comprehensive overview of all plastics technologies and those involved in injection moulding, extrusion technology and thermoforming were able to access information about processes, machines and tools applicable to the plastics industry.  The focus of the event was on thermoplastic processing with a high proportion of injection moulding related topics (mainly machine manufacturers, material suppliers and end-users).

Fraunhofer ICT demonstrated the sandwich material via a wind turbine model which had been built specifically for this purpose.  In addition, the tape and foam material was disseminated and project flyers were handed out.
