The active accompanying programme gave the professional visitors plenty of opportunities to find out about the latest developments and trends in mold building on the company's premises. And visitors acquired specialist information first-hand in a series of high-quality lectures by Hasco employees and experts from partner companies in the industry.

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Seul, President of the Association of German Tool and Mold Makers (VDWF), spoke about the Potential and implementation options for mold making 4.0. Following this, Dirk Dombert (3D Systems) provided insight into additive manufacturing in the field of machining. Holger Wüst and Ansgar Claes (Mecadat AG) demonstrated ways of reducing the number of correction loops on the basis of rheological analyses. After Manuel Schmellenkamp (Sigma Engineering GmbH) had given a lecture on virtual molding as added value for mould building, Klaus Zimmermann (Hasco) ended the morning with information on low-stress material.
In the afternoon, Frank Mumme (KIMW Lüdenscheid) reported on thermal barrier layers.
