Technology partners make an impression at Moulding Expo with their expertise at all stages of the value-added chain
Digitalisation and the use of new technologies are constantly setting new standards in tool, pattern and mould making, and are vital for future competitiveness. In order to cope with the increasing demands, reliable and experienced technology partners and their expertise are essential for the tool, pattern and mould making industry.
Moulding Expo will bring tool, pattern and mould making companies, their customers and suppliers together under one roof in the L-Bank Forum (Hall 1) at Messe Stuttgart from 13 to 16 June 2023.
From hydraulic cylinders and standard components through to hot runner systems
Within short walking distances visitors to Moulding Expo will be able to gain an impression of the latest developments in the areas of components, installation parts and accessories for tool, pattern and mould making.
"For us, Moulding Expo has the status of a leading trade fair. Every two years at Moulding Expo we meet the industries with whom we generate 60 per cent of our turnover. This year, we will present a wide range of innovations such as the built-in cylinder EBZ, intelligent sensors, the ECO-line hybrid cylinder made of steel and aluminium, and the two-stage ejector," said Christen J. Merkle, Managing Director of AHP Merkle GmbH.
The company Meusburger Georg GmbH & Co KG has also registered for Moulding Expo. As a full-service provider, the company manufactures standard components for tool construction and mould making. "We offer products and online services along the entire value-added chain. Visitors to Moulding Expo will be able to become acquainted with our well-established product range which extends from plates, built-in parts, customised processing, hot runner technology and control, and workshop supplies through to digital services," said Markus Jenny, Mould Making Technology Management at Meusburger Georg GmbH & Co KG.
For the technology supplier, cooperation with tool, pattern and mould making companies means that its services and products must satisfy the extremely high demands in the industry and have expertise. The company Oerlikon HRSflow GmbH specialises in hot runner solutions from 5 grammes through to 50 kilogrammes. "On our stand we will provide an overview of solutions for multi-cavity applications, thin-walled applications in the packaging industry, solutions for small shot weights in the area of high-tech plastic applications, family moulds and function film back injections," summarised Stephan Berz, Vice President Sales Oerlikon HRSflow & General Manager HRSflow GmbH (D-A-CH branch).
From clamping devices and processing tools through to machine tools
Complete production technologies for tool, pattern and mould making will also be presented at Moulding Expo.
PARTOOL GmbH & Co. KG. is well-known for its high-quality clamping devices. In order to satisfy its customers’ requirements, the company attaches great importance to individual solutions. "We provide individual clamping devices for tool, pattern and mould making, for mechanical engineering, medical technology, contract manufacturing, production and the automotive industry. We supply highly accurate and reliable zero point clamping systems, innovative tool clamping technology, automation and extensive advice. We analyse processes and develop and implement solutions together with our customers," said Holger Heimerdinger, Authorised Officer and Head of Project Management and Sales at PARTOOL GmbH & Co. KG.
Precision machine tools are indispensable for many areas of industrial production and especially in tool, pattern and mould making. Since it was founded in 1930, Fehlmann AG has specialised in producing high-quality precision machine tools. Alain Strebel, Head of Sales - Northern Europe at Fehlmann AG Maschinenfabrik, summarised: "Fehlmann AG Maschinenfabrik develops and produces high-quality precision machine tools. In addition to the proven precision milling machines for manual and CNC processing, we will present at Moulding Expo a compact high-performance machining centre from the VERSA line that can be expanded by further modules and perfectly combines the milling, hard milling and jig grinding processes."
High-quality metal cutting tools are also indispensable in tool, pattern and mould making. The company ZECHA Hartmetall-Werkzeugfabrikation GmbH is an expert in this field. "We specialise in highly accurate micro-precision tools, for example for mould making, medicine and parts production. We are looking forward to presenting our innovations in the area of micro-tools and an innovation in the area of testing technology for micro-tools at Moulding Expo," said Arndt Fielen, Sales Manager at ZECHA Hartmetall-Werkzeugfabrikation GmbH.
Expertise at all stages of the value-added chain
From hydraulic cylinders and standard components through to hot runner systems. From clamping devices and processing tools through to machine tools and software solutions. Technology partners make an impression at Moulding Expo with their expertise at all stages of the value-added chain. Together with tool, pattern and mould making companies they present the best that the industry has to offer.
Jens Lüdtke, Head of Tebis Consulting and a member of the Executive Committee of "Marktspiegel Werkzeugbau" (a cooperative benchmark initiative for tool, pattern and mould making), emphasised the importance of suppliers for tool, pattern and mould making companies: "In addition to important factors such as increased efficiency, professionalisation of sales or documentary evidence of climate-neutral production, cooperation models may be the key to maintaining competitiveness. Joint development of utility-oriented business models and specific solutions with suppliers offers unique opportunities."
