Successful Fakuma 2018

Our impressions

From 16 to 20 October 2018, ARBURG provided an overview of the future of injection moulding at the international Fakuma trade fair in Friedrichshafen, Germany. The main focus was on the "Road to Digitalisation".

Digitalisation and new colour scheme
Everything came together for us at the Fakuma 2018: ambitious technology in an ambitious design with an ambitious exhibition stand," says Michael Hehl, ARBURG Managing Partner and Spokesperson for the Management Team. The main focus was on the "Road to Digitalisation" and the new, modern mint green, light grey and dark grey colour scheme in which all the ALLROUNDERs appeared for the first time. The unanimously positive feedback from the visitors demonstrated that ARBURG has struck the nerve of the times with its "Road to Digitalisation". At various stations, experts provided information on the digital assistance packages and offered an insight into the future, e.g. the GESTICA control system with filling simulation, augmented reality (AR) for "smart" service and the introduction of the new customer portal.

Innovative products, processes and applications
Further highlights included the premiere of the ALLROUNDER 820 H in the "Packaging" version and the new clamp design, a turnkey system featuring the new SCADA system ARBURG Turnkey Control Module (ATCM) and automated micro LSR injection moulding. Further innovative applications with the ALLROUNDERs and the freeformer at the ARBURG and partner stands as well as a dedicated recruiting stand rounded off the company's presence at the Fakuma.
