The 25th Fakuma in the last 36 years also reflects the development of the international plastics world: In 1981, only 60 exhibitors presented their products at the Fakuma at an exhibition space of 4,000 m², while this year there were almost 1,900 exhibitors on an exhibition area of more than 85,000 m² who presented themselves to over 48,000 trade visitors.
The Fakuma was also highly successful for the TER Plastics POLYMER GROUP, which celebrates its own 40th anniversary this year. This year's focus was on subjects, such as tribology, structural integrity and thermal management, and it tapped exactly the pulse of the industrial sector.
In addition to the highlights in the product portfolio of its suppliers, TER Plastics also presented the latest innovations from its own production:
The new types of the TEREZ LFT series offer an excellent combination of toughness and rigidity even under high temperature requirements. By means of the self-developed manufacturing process, an extremely well fiber connection is achieved even with high performance polymers and at the same time, polymer degradation is also prevented. TEREZ GT3 HLG40 with reduced water absorption is new in the product range and it usefully supplements the long fiber compounds of the TEREZ A, TEREZ B and TEREZ GT2 series.
Tribological requirements even at high temperatures can now be met particularly well with the newly developed type TEREZ HT 100 H G30 TF15. The unique chemical coupling of the sliding component even enables maintenance-free applications over long periods of time at temperatures of up to 120 °C. In the nylon standard range, TEREZ types with glass fiber contents of 65% are now also available, by which a particularly good rigidity and strength as well as excellent surfaces are achieved despite the high fiber content. This enables new, attractive possibilities in terms of metal replacement.
The TER Plastics POLYMER GROUP is already looking forward to the next Fakuma, which will take place between 16th and 20th October 2018 at the Friedrichshafen Exhibition Centre.
