MoldMaking Technology’s annual Technology Review and Sourcing Guide is a comprehensive guide for researching today’s technology, equipment, products and services. Our online database offers more than 1,000 manufacturers, distributors and suppliers for more than 200 product and service categories that you employ daily. To keep this information current, MMT surveys and updates its supplier database every spring with the latest company contact information and product/service offerings. The year’s latest moldmaking product developments within mold engineering/design, build and maintenance/repair are broken down into 11 sections, including a brand new section this year: Service Providers.
Due to the increased need for North American manufacturing capacity and capabilities since the onset of the coronavirus, we added a Service Providers section focused on suppliers of blow, compression, extrusion blow, foam, injection, liquid injection blow, stretch blow and thermoform molds, as well as die-cast, dies, prototype tooling and prototype/short-run/injection molding services.
This month’s Technology Review and Sourcing Guide includes a portion of that database listed in sourcing grids tailored to match suppliers with their respective product/service offerings along with a sample of product releases that the magazine featured throughout the year.
