At K 2016, more than 3,000 exhibitors from all continents will be presenting their latest developments in the fields of machinery and equipment for the plastics and rubber industry, raw materials and auxiliaries, semi-finished products, technical parts, and reinforced plastics products. The fair is expected to attract some 200,000 trade visitors from all over the world.

During K 2016, the special show “Plastics shape the future” will highlight the developments that are already taking shape and the visions that may become reality tomorrow. With reference to examples, the show demonstrates to what extent plastics are making their mark on modern living spaces – functionally, aesthetically and sustainably.

Having met with a huge response at its premiere at K 2013, the Science Campus at K 2016 will be further intensifying the dialogue between research and industry in an enlarged area and with an increased number of participating scientific organizations. Supplementing the presentations of universities and colleges, institutes and sponsoring organizations, the Science Campus will focus on the four key themes Innovation drivers of global change focusing on resource efficiency, Plastics Industry 4.0, New materials and Lightweight engineering.

Additive manufacturing processes are causing a stir among users in the design and packaging, aerospace and automotive industries as well as in the fields of dental and medical technology and machines and plant engineering. Three years ago, Messe Düsseldorf established the 3D fab+print brand to focus especially on additive manufacturing of the future. The K 2016 fair will represent comprehensive opportunities for visitors to explore the possibilities and limits of additive manufacturing. (Source: Messe Düsseldorf)
