For the first time, ARGUS exhibited at the international trade fair FAKUMA in Friedrichshafen this year and is positive impressed from an innovative fair especially with the focus on sustainability topics!

The 28th Fakuma international trade fair for plastics processing was held successfully from the 17th through the 21st of October, 2023. With 1636 exhibitors - 10% more than at the last Fakuma in 2021 - in twelve exhibition halls and several foyer areas, the trade fair was booked out as a plastics celebration that sparked off a great barrage of fireworks. "A full house, satisfied exhibitors, 39,343 enthusiastic expert visitors and forward-looking topics – the overall results are quite impressive." says the official press release.

Traditionally, large injection moulding machines have always been fascinating eye-catchers and genuine crowd-pullers. New products in this area included systems with all-electric drives, which make the machines flexible and powerful. Lots of sustainable concepts were also presented for packaging, recycling compounds and metal substitution solutions.

Our trade fair team experienced five fascinating days and intends to participate again next year.
