Moulding Expo 2017: There is once again so much to discover by students and apprentices.

"With the slogan "Get your future in shape!", together with our partner associations, we will be showcasing the most important apprenticeship professions in tool construction, pattern and mould making in Hall 4 on Stand B35," explains Florian Niethammer, Project Manager responsible for Moulding Expo. "School classes will have an opportunity to discuss their future with trainers and apprentices there." And to give the idea a more practical edge, there will also be guided tours around the trade fair. A "guide" from the sector will take a group and, after a short introduction on the training stand, will accompany them around the trade fair to discover what the industry has to offer.

Young people interested in finding further education courses at the forthcoming Moulding Expo will also be spoilt for choice – for instance on the Schmalkalden University stand. From the summer semester of 2017 onwards, engineers and technicians can attend a course in Additive Manufacturing Processes and Rapid Technologies over two semesters whilst working. It is offered by the university in conjunction with the Association of German Tool and Mould Makers (VDWF), the Institute for Toolless Fabrication (IwF) at the University of Applied Sciences Aachen and the Chair for Manufacturing Technology at the University of Duisburg-Essen as training partners.
