Trend Setting or Following?
A Journey through the Landscape of the Tool and Mold Making Industry
Tool and mold makers are detail oriented and innovative, but communication of their expertise is not exactly their greatest strength. Furthermore, a tool maker often no longer has the opportunity to communicate directly with his or her actual customer. Material processing intermediaries are increasingly brought in as communication partners between the tool maker and the OEM. The tool maker operates within a jungle of trends, innovations, and anonymous business triangles. Prof. Thomas Seul and Fabian Diehr therefore met with some industry players to explore different paths they have taken through the thicket of this industry-jungle.
