Company News Hasco sponsors international mould-making competitions
Working with the best, learning from the best. As an international supplier of modular standard mould units and accessories, Hasco attaches great value to close co-operation with its customers.
Ever since it was founded, the Lüdenscheid-based company has nurtured intensive contact in the industry with leading companies and research institutes.
An important way to identify benchmarks is to be involved in the international mould-making awards, in which the best mould-makers compete with one another and present solutions at the highest level. The discussions and close co-operation with the award participants and organisers provides Hasco with important first-hand information for their design and development activities, the company explains.
The winners were announced at this year's Plastics Industry Awards in London, which is supported by Hasco Internorm/Daventry. The winner in the “Toolmaker of the Year” and “Supplier Partnership: Toolmaker” categories was Faulkner Moulds from Elland in West Yorkshire.
In the German competition “Excellence in Production”, organised by the WZL (Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering) of RWTH Aachen University and the Fraunhofer Institute of Plastics Processing (IPT), twelve finalists made it into the last round. This year's “mould design of the year” and the winners in the various categories were then chosen by representatives from science, politics, trade associations and industry.
