Moulding Area - Moulding lives from high-quality production technology
Moulding, or rather tool, mould and model building, is an established field of application in metalworking, and is therefore a more than obvious choice as a user-based Area for the METAV. Simultaneously, moulding is considered to be one of the most demanding fields of application in metalworking.
The standards of precision and quality involved are extremely high, which encourages innovation in this area. Besides conventional processes, new process technologies are always finding their way in, such as laser-based manufacturing for fine texturing of design surfaces.
So the requirements that apply, and how they can be solved with innovative production technology, are central topics of the Moulding Area – but also the core area of the METAV. Ultimately, high quality in mould making can only be achieved with high-quality solutions from production technology. This is why the METAV concentrates the entire value added chain of toolmaking and mould making in one event. The fair accordingly combines the manufacturers of machine tools and precision tools that are central to these sectors under one roof, as well as companies of C Technologies.
In addition, numerous moulding applications pose high demands for industrial design. This is why the industrial designers’ association VDID offers trade visitors important approaches for their designs in the Moulding Area.
Other partners are the specialist department for toolmaking in the Precision Tools Association of the VDMA and the German Association of Model and Mould Manufacturers.
