Moulding Expo will once again become the industry marketplace for tool, pattern and mould making from 8 to 11 June 2021. With its wide range of topics showcasing the latest developments in the industry, the attractive accompanying programme will make a valuable contribution to the trade fair. In its capacity as the technical partner for Moulding Expo, WBA Aachener Werkzeugbau Akademie GmbH will now play an important role in the organisation of the accompanying programme.
The joint objective is to develop theme days with a specific focal point and offer talks, podium discussions and opportunities for the exchange of experiences: "Thanks to its community, WBA has a special insight into the current challenges facing the tool making industry. We want to use our unique position to provide valuable impetus for the future-oriented direction of the industry," said Prof. Dr.-Ing. Wolfgang Boos, Managing Shareholder of WBA. 

"This includes both strategic and technological action recommendations in order to make the tool making industry ready to cope with current and future challenges. Moulding Expo will provide us with an ideal platform in this respect." Trade visitors can look forward to topics such as sustainability in tool making, global tool making markets, the digital transformation of tool making and employee training, but also innovative concepts in tool technology and innovative and alternative production methods.
"We are delighted to have acquired WBA as another experienced partner with high tool making expertise that will enable us to gear Moulding Expo even more closely to the current needs and challenges in the industry," said Florian Niethammer, Project Manager for Moulding Expo at Messe Stuttgart.

As a platform for tool making and as a competence centre in the production engineering cluster on the campus of RWTH Aachen University, WBA forms an interface between science and industry.
