The Philippines’ largest and focused metal working event will hold its 9th Philippine Die & Mould Machineries and Equipment Exhibition (PDMEX 2019) on August 28-31, 2019 with the theme “Your Gateway to Technology Advancement” at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
This biennial event – now on its ninth (9th) series is organized by the Philippine Die and Mold Association (PDMA) which will bring together allied leaders and stakeholders in the industry, and will discuss the latest technology and practices that guide the development of die- and mold-making around the world.
This year, the trade event will occupy over 13,000 square meter of exhibition space and will feature around 400 local and international exhibitors, which will showcase latest technologies and developments in the die and mould, machine tools, metrology, automation and welding industries.
The die and mold is the "backbone of any industry," said Mr. Louie T. Fuster. "It is the key to all process in manufacturing," he added, noting that "everything people encounter" --- from IC MOULDS for the electronic industry, automotive parts, plastic moulds and dies for plastic bottles and various plastic parts in different industries, medical instruments and equipment, including farming implements for the agricultural industries. Die casting and forging for the automotive transmission parts also goes through the process of die and mold design and processing.
"In other countries, they have different specialization, from design to die and mold making, to sampling of actual product.
That is why our group has been very active in personnel training so that local producers may be able to cope up with the demand in terms of expertise in die and mold making," added Mr. Fuster.
Die and mold industry and education experts are working to develop special courses on die and mold engineering in order to further develop the industry in the Philippines.
