The accompanying programme of MOULDING EXPO 2019: Focus on future topics

Before the start of MOULDING EXPO in Stuttgart on 21 May 2019, many signs are pointing to change. Project Manager Florian Niethammer cites as an example the automotive industry, one of the most important customers of the tool construction and mould making industry: "The topic of mobility will change in the foreseeable future – and therefore also the demands on tool construction. It will be exciting to see what new opportunities this produces." The accompanying programme of MOULDING EXPO 2019 features future topics such as these and will look for answers. Three forums and three special shows will provide the basis for discussion in this respect. "I am looking forward to experiencing the exciting topics which are currently challenging the tool construction industry. To this end, we have managed to involve key players from the industry who are providing input," said Project Manager Florian Niethammer.
Forums to discuss the future prospects of the industry
In the FORM + Werkzeug Lounge (Jacques Lanners Hall (Hall 3), Stand 3D61) of the industry magazine "FORM + Werkzeug" Chief Editor Susanne Schröder will talk to tool makers as well as scientists and researchers. The key questions here will include, for example, digitalisation of the industry or whether tool purchasing in China is more of an opportunity or a risk. The authors from the specialist publishing company Carl Hanser will present their latest book projects while exhibitors will describe their latest developments during short talks.
"Experience the future!" is the motto of the Future Forum on Tool and Mould Making (Hall 7, Stand 7D53), which is being organised by Richard Pergler, Chief Editor of the trade journal "werkzeug&formenbau". This Forum will contain information and suggestions for future developments. At the beginning Professor Thomas Seul, President of the Association of German Tool and Mould Makers (VDWF), will give a talk on the innovative capacity of tool construction and mould making companies. Specific technologies and processes will be other focal points. The Forum will end with a podium discussion on the topic of additive technologies in tool construction.
The International Special Tooling and Machining Association (ISTMA) will be represented again at MOULDING EXPO by the ISTMA Lounge (Hall 9, Stand 9A12). The focal points here will be internationally relevant topics ranging from the presentation of regional markets and clusters through to the establishment of global relationships in tool construction. Finally, the worldwide Who's who in the industry will meet here for networking.
Special shows will combine innovation and practice
The new special show Tool Construction Today and Tomorrow (Hall 7, Stand 7C55 / Stand 7D53) is being jointly organised by the VDWF and verlag moderne industrie GmbH. This special show will present the state of the art in the tool construction industry. Visitors to the trade fair will have the opportunity here to experience topics such as process-reliable injection moulding during a live production demonstration. During a digital poster show visitors will be able to obtain information on current research projects in the areas of tool construction and mould making. The first edition of the Market Report "Tool Construction" will also be presented here. This cooperative initiative of the tool construction industry will present the results of its practice-oriented company comparison for the first time at MOULDING EXPO.
Another innovation is the special show Metal Working Innovative (Hall 9, Stand 9C71) of the VDMA Precision Tools Association. This special show will highlight the contribution made by suppliers, i.e. what part metal-cutting tools or chucking tools, for example, can play in ensuring competitive tool, pattern and mould making.
During its special show Innonet Plastic Value-Added Chain (Hall 7, Stand 7D11) the Innonet company network will show the entire spectrum of the plastics processing industry from mould making and production through to printing.
Great importance attached to the promotion of young talents
A small snack box for every visitor to the trade fair? That's the MEX BOX , because MOULDING EXPO is starting series production of its own product for the second time in conjunction with Reutlingen University and its Master's degree students. From the initial idea to live production on the spot (Hall 5, Stand 5A02) the project was developed and implemented with committed industry partners.
Anyone who is interested in the implementation of these projects can obtain information about the most important training occupations during MOULDING EXPO under the motto "Get your future into shape!" (Hall 5, Stand 5B41). Guided tours of the trade fair will also be offered for school classes. Messe Stuttgart is also making a specific contribution towards the promotion of young talents: it is financing a scholarship for an in-service advanced training course as a Project Manager (FH) for Tool Construction and Mould Making. This scholarship to the value of around €5,000 will be presented during the MOULDING EXPO Exhibitor Evening on 23 May 2019. Applications can be submitted up to 15 May 2019.
