Due to the still uncertain health situation, some important plastics and rubber machinery manufacturers will limit or cancel their participation in Fakuma 2020 (Friedrichshafen, October 13-17). Among them: Wittmann Group, Krauss Maffei, Sumitomo Demag, Engel, Nordson, Herrmann Ultraschalltechnik, Moretto and Piovan.
Even with a strict hygiene concept and a limited number of trade fair visitors per day imposed by the organizer, the risk of infection with Covd-19 cannot be ruled out.
As a consequence the above mentioned companies prefer to abstain.
Others, like the French Sepro Robotique, chose to reduce their participation in the show, in terms of staff and exhibits.
