Germany — From 12 to 16 October, companies from the plastics industry will meet in Friedrichshafen for Fakuma. Almost 1500 exhibitors will present their product ranges at the international trade fair for plastics processing. The Association of German Tool and Moldmakers (VDWF) will also be present with its joint stand in 2021.
Germany — Having held all VDWF events as purely digital formats last year, the association's members met again in person for the first time at the 28th Annual General Meeting on 16 September. This time, the VDWF member Fanuc welcomed the approximately 130 participants who travelled to Neuhausen auf den Fildern from all parts of Germany.
With the Virtual Innovation Day on 10 June 2021, Moulding Expo has launched a first targeted measure for the next physical trade fair for tool, pattern and mould making in 2023. At the beginning of the four-hour online event, industry leaders discussed the status quo, challenges and the future of European tool, pattern and mould making. ETMM has summarized the most important aspects of the discussion for you.

The German Association of Tool and Mould Makers‘ (VDWF) networking event for young entrepreneurs took around 40 mouldmakers on a three-day trip around Lake Constance in October 2017 to visit OEMs and innovative mould shops in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
Even after 25 years of existence, its fair to say that the VDWF, the German Association of German Tool and Mould-Makers, is not a very old association. But since its start in 1992, it has achieved a lot while representing the interests of its member companies.
