Discover opportunities with plastics and rubber for sustainable product development and production

The Kunststoffenbeurs  is the largest trade fair in the Benelux with a focus on plastics and rubber. Here you will discover the possibilities for sustainable product development and production. Thanks to its unique properties, plastic and rubber can be used in every way: in colour, shape and weight, but they can also be combined with other materials and used in many production techniques. Think of techniques such as injection moulding, thermo or vacuum forming and extrusion, but also 3D printing.

Whether you are a professional in the plastics industry, a product designer, a manufacturer of (consumer) products or appliances or simply curious about the latest developments; the Kunststoffenbeurs offers you the ideal opportunity to discover the latest trends and technologies and to meet 200+ specialised companies that can help you with your challenges.

Meet 200+ specialist companies from the plastics and rubber industry

On the exhibition floor, you will meet over 200+ companies, knowledge and educational institutions, research projects, start-ups and student teams specialising in: plastics processing and machining, product design and development, sustainability, recycling, raw materials, materials, silicones, injection moulding, extrusion, vacuum forming, moulds, tool making, digitisation, software, automation, machinery, machine construction, rapid prototyping, analysis, simulation and testing, surface techniques, joining techniques and peripherals. Wondering who you'll meet at the Kunststofbeurs?

Machine Square: 20 exhibitors demonstrate live state-of-the-art technology

On the Machinery Square, 20 international and national exhibitors will demonstrate state-of-the-art technology for the plastics and rubber industry again this year. One theme is high on the agenda here: sustainability, translated concretely into lower CO2 emissions and energy consumption. After all, sustainability is not just about recycling plastics. Reducing energy consumption is also a solution. At the Machine Square, you will therefore discover fine examples of both fully electric and hybrid injection moulding machines, as well as concrete applications and software to control the injection moulding process in a circular way.

Sustainability, recycling, ecodesign, redesign and reduction of CO2 footprint

50% less raw material consumption by 2030 and fully circular by 2050; that is the Dutch government's ambition for a sustainable future. As an innovative sector, the plastics and rubber industry is leading the way in this and is continuously working on making (end) products more sustainable. For instance, 30% of all plastic waste is recycled or reused, more and more plastics are biodegradable and the use of natural raw materials such as crude oil is significantly reduced. Sustainability does not stop with the (end) product, the industry is working on the entire (production) process: from energy saving in production to process optimisation and overall reduction of the CO2 footprint. At the Kunststoffenbeurs, you will discover the leading examples of sustainable solutions.
