Experience Additive Manufacturing

For many years now generative technologies have been used in industry in many areas, from the initial design to the finished product. But there are many more possible applications. Molding Expo 2017 – the International Trade Fair for Tool, Pattern and Mold Making – wants to demonstrate the synergies between new and established processing methods. At the next Molding Expo, which takes place from May 30 to June 2, 2017, representatives from the classic industry and the new up-and-coming scene of additive manufacturing and 3D printing come together here as extensive experience meets incredible innovation.

In addition to general topics relating to 3D technology and additive manufacturing, Molding Expo provides information about very specific solutions in this process area: Exhibitors showcase all conceivable applications, from classic prototyping to the development of close-contour cooling mold inserts through to the production of stamping and cutting tools or rapid tooling. The 3D topic, including training, is portrayed extensively at this event.

The focal points of Molding Expo are tool, pattern and mold making with injection molding, die-cast molding, casting, stamping and forming tools, as well as various pattern-making and prototyping methods. Components and accessories, machine tools, processing tools, measuring technology and special machines, software, and systems and services for tool, pattern and mold making round off the scope of the trade fair.

Specialist forums and special exhibitions complement the varied program. In 2015, 620 exhibitors and around 14,000 trade visitors came to Stuttgart for the première of this event. Messe Stuttgart is the organiser of Molding Expo and is supported by the German Association of Pattern and Mold Making (MF), the German Engineering Federation (VDMA), the German Association of Tool and Mold Manufacturers (VDWF), the German Machine Tool Builders' Association (VDW) and the International Special Tooling & Machining Association (ISTMA).
