WEIMA Group at FAKUMA 2018 – All expectations exceeded

Highly satisfied market and technology leaders from 126 countries worldwide once again turned the trade fair for plastics processing in Friedrichshafen into an impressive trade event. WEIMA looks back on five inspiring and intensively guided presentation days.

The high expectations of the WEIMA sales team were fully met at this year’s FAKUMA, where the powerful WLK 1000 single-shaft shredder was presented. Successful technical discussions of “high quality” and the resulting high enquiries and interesting contacts are an outstanding result.



The conclusion of sales manager Jörg Töpfer is clear:
“It was sensational. And I am delighted by the great response from national and international trade visitors and the immense interest in our shredding machines. What makes us very happy is the acquisition of new customers and the resulting high number of sales”.

For WEIMA it was one of the best FAKUMA for many years. We would like to thank the many customers and interested parties for this”.



The trade visitors were impressed by the robust and high-throughput WLK 1000 shredder. Due to the improved V-rotor with 370 mm diameter, which is equipped with 78 cutting blades, extremely high throughputs are possible. Furthermore, the single-shaft shredder scores above all with its stable and 55 kW strong drive. It can significantly increase the energy efficiency per ton of material.

Additional important convincing features are the various equipment variants – depending on the application – as well as the hydraulically downward swivelling screen, which makes accessibility and maintenance immensely easier.

The WEIMA team agrees: “The FAKUMA was a complete success”.
