From the 12–16 October Meusburger was represented at Fakuma, the international trade fair for plastics processing in Friedrichshafen, Germany.

A particular focus was on the range for injection moulders. Two things are essential for reliable and smooth operation: the use of high-quality moulds and the fast delivery of replacement parts. Meusburger offers a wide range of over 96,000 items of high quality and functionality. In addition, all items are immediately available from stock. This saves customers time and money when purchasing and operating.

Hot runner systems also played a big role at the stand for this year’s Fakuma. The standard parts manufacturer’s hot runner system experts have over 55 years of experience with complicated applications and their requirements, including physical properties, materials, functional integration, surface quality and complicated designs. Meusburger offers both standardised hot runner systems and also customised solutions. From the engineering and design phase to commissioning through to maintenance, Meusburger customers are supported throughout the entire process and receive feedback within 24 hours in every phase of the project. The visitors at this year’s Fakuma were able to speak to the field engineers at the Meusburger stand and find out about the extensive hot runner range.

A further highlight at the newly designed trade fair stand was the special area for designers, where the functions and areas of the Meusburger online world were also presented. Visitors had the opportunity, for example, to take a look at the wizards and configurators for mould bases, which make it possible to assemble compatible plates, calculate the corresponding components and export the CAD data.
