The International Plastic Fair (IPF Japan 2017), to be held 24-28 October at Makuhari Messe, Tokyo, Japan, will have 783 exhibitors and 2,300 booths, over an area of 54,000 sq m. This is up slightly from the 776 exhibitors and 2,248 booths at the previous show in 2014.

Besides moulding machinery, ancillary equipment and automation, some of the slated exhibits will focus on testing, measuring and control equipment; mould and die related equipment and materials; and recycling and wastes treatment equipment – among others.

Other highlights include:

  • How Japanese manufacturers are applying IOT (Internet of Things) and Industry 4.0 to production lines
  • Automation utilising robots
  • Moulding of FRP composites

The National Composites Centre Japan of Nagoya University and Innovative Composite Materials Research and Development Centre of Kanazawa Institute of Technology will showcase their latest research development at the special theme exhibition.
