From October 12 to 16, 2021, the 27th Fakuma International Trade Fair for Plastics Processing took place in Friedrichshafen, Germany. In terms of content, this year's Fakuma was centered on the topics of the circular economy, sustainability, and digitalization.
Under the motto “Material purity in all process steps of the circular economy,” Sesotec presented technologies and services that help plastics manufacturers, processors, and recyclers achieve circularity and efficiency in their production. Trade show highlights included the FLAKE SCAN material analysis system and the debut appearance of the mobile RE-SORT metal separation unit.
Being the first major plastics industry convention since the beginning of the pandemic, this year’s Fakuma attracted fewer visitors than in previous years. However, the Sesotec booth saw more than 300 visitors – many more than expected.
“We are back, and stronger than ever!” said Dietmar Dieing, Vice President of PI Plast at Sesotec. “This Fakuma was the ideal platform for presenting Sesotec’s latest innovations designed to help the plastics industry achieve sustainable, environmentally-friendly production that is also profitable. We feel optimistic about both the number of visitors as well as the quality of the conversations.”
Michael Perl, Group Director of Sorting & Recycling at Sesotec, observed: “Fakuma 2021 was also a success in terms of the sorting sector. The plastics recycling industry is picking up speed. The only downside for trade show visitors continues to be the lack of an international presence. This is of course due to ongoing travel restrictions amidst COVID-19.”
The next Fakuma will take place from Oct. 17 to 21, 2023. Before then, the plastics industry will meet again next year at the 2022 K trade show in Düsseldorf (Oct. 18 to 26, 2022). Perhaps this time under “normal” conditions?
