Gebr. Schwarz GmbH at FAKUMA 2018

Live diagnosis on the Custom Bike

This year, 1,933 exhibitors from 40 nations presented their companies at the 26th FAKUMA plastics trade fair, providing comprehensive information on all of the plastics industry has to offer. The trend in the plastics industry is also towards more digitization with better networked systems and equipment. Over the five days of the fair, 47,000 visitors came to get informed about the latest technologies in the industry.

This was also the case at Gebr. Schwarz GmbH, where a live diagnosis was carried out on a custom bike. With the Mega Macs 77 diagnostic device from Hella Gutmann Solutions, it was demonstrated how to select the control unit of the custom bike directly in order to read out the system status. Gebr. Schwarz GmbH has thus proven its know-how as a system supplier by this diagnostic device.

Another highlight was the 3D printed steel mould insert. By using this technology, Gebr. Schwarz has produced a mould insert with an FDM 3D printer. The advantage lies in the realization of geometries that are not possible with conventional machining processes, such as contour-near cooling.

On the last day, all trainees were given the opportunity to represent our company at the trade fair and to visit the exhibitors to find out about current trends in the plastics industry.

We thank you for your visit and would like to welcome you warmly to the next FAKUMA in 2020.
