About Moulding Expo

Whether a hidden champion or a large group, the best that the first-class international tool, pattern and mould making industry and its suppliers have to offer will meet for the fourth time at Moulding Expo from 8 to 11 June 2021. The International Trade Fair for Tool, Pattern and Mould Making is held every two years in Stuttgart and is divided into several exhibition areas.

The focal point of Moulding Expo is the tool, pattern and mould making industry which is very user-oriented with its injection moulding tools, die-cast moulds and forming tools, as well as gauge construction and jig and fixtures manufacturing. The trade fair also features systems and service providers in the areas of plastics technology and metalworking: from machine tool manufacturers, material suppliers, suppliers of hot runner systems, providers of measuring and test equipment and machining tool manufacturers through to software companies.
