Event of the year Meet the tool, pattern and mould making industry
The organisers of Moulding Expo in Stuttgart, Germany are preparing to welcome around 400 exhibitors in June 2023. These exhibitors will include leading companies of the tool, pattern and mould making industry along with important technology suppliers.
Tools and moulds are required in every industry in order to manufacture high-quality products in large unit numbers. It is therefore becoming increasingly more important to organise the production process in an even more efficient and cost-effective way, and also take account of integrated solutions. Moulding Expo in Stuttgart, Germany, wants to address exactly these issues.
A key topic of this year’s trade fair is efficiency and its role in the industry. A crucial role in this respect is played by reliable and innovative tool construction partners with modern and highly automated production as well as corresponding experience and know-how. Leading tool, pattern and mould making companies will demonstrate their expertise.
Under one roof at the Moulding Expo, the exhibitors will present customised solutions for different sectors — for example the automobile industry, the aerospace industry, the electrical engineering industry, medical technology, mechanical engineering and the photovoltaic industry. Whether a hidden champion or a major corporation, the best that the first-class international tool, pattern and mould making industry and its suppliers have to offer will meet at Moulding Expo.
As a first-time exhibitor at Moulding Expo, /H&B/ Electronic provides state-of-the-art solutions in the area of metal 3-D printing. “In our capacity as a supplier of 3-D printing services, we primarily target tool construction companies, mould makers, designers and plastics processors. We embrace trending topics such as sustainability and energy efficiency at an early stage when designing our tools so that our tools and those of our customers function with even more energy efficiency in series production. For us as a supplier of metal 3-D printing and engineering services, Moulding Expo represents a great opportunity to hold discussions with trade visitors and industry insiders, and also shows how efficient the German and European tool making industries are,” summarised Jan Bayerbach, Head of Development and Design at /H&B/ Electronic.
Companies such as Schneider Form are taking tool construction to the next level by offering their customers integrated solutions at the product development stage. “Automotive is our strongest market segment. We are also involved in other areas such as medical technology. In order to be profitable, it is necessary to continuously optimise processes, embrace trending topics such as sustainability and also regularly survey markets — and do this all over the world. Since Schneider Form has a large portfolio of tools, it is important to find the right approach for every type and size of tool,” said Peter Bradtke, Sales Director at Schneider Form.
Another exhibitor, i. e. the Geiger Group, can look back on 60 years of success. The company has continued to develop further throughout its existence. Eva Söhnlein, Managing Director of the Geiger Group, stresses the need for a future-oriented strategy: “In addition to medical technology, our customers come from the automobile industry, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, audiological technology and the photovoltaic industry. We want to master future challenges together with our customers. Our objective is to offer integrated solutions which are both technologically mature and economically viable. We are looking forward to present these solutions to top-notch trade visitors at Moulding Expo.” (ast)
