As North American mold builders continue to look for new business opportunities, investigate different end markets and explore new product development, they will win additional work and require expansion plans. This growth can mean a need for more or new technology or services to stay competitive, which is where MoldMaking Technology’s annual Technology Review and Sourcing Guide comes into play.

This year we’ve taken the past 12 months’ worth of moldmaking product developments and organized them into the following sections: software, additive manufacturing, mold materials, hot runners, mold components, cutting tools, machining, EDM, inspection/measurement, and maintenance, repair and surface treatment. And, new 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. We’ve also highlighted the services categories within each of our technology grids to ease your services search. For example, machining, design, 3D printing, EDM, polishing, welding and heat-treating, to name a few.  

This printed guide, along with our online database, connects readers with almost 1,000 manufacturers, distributors and suppliers of more than 200 product and service categories that the mold manufacturing supply chain uses every day.

This is also an appropriate time to mention our Amerimold Assistance Sourcing Program (ASAP), an online sourcing tool to help connect manufacturers (OEMs) looking for service suppliers and service suppliers (mold builders and molders) with capacity and capabilities looking to take on more work. Completing a simple form will get you into this free program.

Each of the 11 sections include key supplier profiles preceding a sourcing grid tailored to match suppliers with their respective product/service offerings (advertisers are noted in boldface type), followed by relevant technical product and service reviews, tips and features. Keep in mind that the grids represent only a portion of our entire online database. The entirety of the data appears online at moldmakingtechnology.com/suppliersMoldMaking Technology surveys and updates its supplier database every spring with the latest company contact information and product/service offerings to keep this information current.

This printed guide, along with our online database, connects readers with almost 1,000 manufacturers, distributors and suppliers of more than 200 product and service categories that the mold manufacturing supply chain uses every day.

We hope this annual guide eases your search for your next technology or service investment. Please feel free to contact me via e-mail at cfuges@gardnerweb.com with any comments or feedback.
