Die & Mould India 2022 - an exhibition organised by Tool & Gauge Manufacturers Association of India (TAGMA) from April 27-30, 2022 - kick-started on April 27 with an aim to provide an ideal opportunity to bring the latest technologies and products for the fast-evolving die & mould industry under one roof. Speaking at the inauguration, D M Sheregar, President, TAGMA India, said, “The last two years have been challenging for all of us personally as well as professionally. However, the industry has emerged stronger and is ready to tap the growing demand for tools in the country. As COVID-19-related challenges fade away and the Indian manufacturing industry is witnessing growth opportunities, the 12th Die & Mould India exhibition aspires to play the role of a facilitator.” 

The four-day event will not only showcase various technological developments for the booming die and mould industry, but also highlight opportunities and challenges as well as provided a platform for toolmakers to learn from the user industry. Vidyadhar Limaye, Senior Director at IAC Group, stated, “I am familiar with the tooling industry and have witnessed its growth journey. India’s toolmakers have made significant contributions to the global manufacturing sector. However, our automobile industry is still heavily reliant on foreign toolmakers because of our toolmakers’ limited capacity. If we find a way to bring toolmakers together to maximise capacity utilisation, the Indian tooling industry will be able to meet the fast-paced demands of various sectors and will be able to tap the growing opportunities.”  
 
Raghava Badhya T V, President & Director, Makino India Pvt Ltd, highlighted the potential of the tooling industry and shared future insights. “Indian toolmakers will find lots of opportunities in electronics, medical equipment, aerospace and defence, among others industries. I believe the next five years will be ripe with possibilities. We need to make India known for its quality. But for this, we need to focus on the global market, building strategic partnerships, and manpower development. No other country has a more educated population, a larger geographical area, and smart minds with talented hands than India. I am confident that this decade will be the most rewarding for India’s manufacturing sector, which will positively reflect on the tooling industry,” he added. 

In his keynote address, Prabhakar Kadapa, Partner & Director at Mudita Strat-Aegis Consultants Pvt Ltd, said, “The tooling industry has come a long way in the last 40 years. The sector has seen a lot of advancements and is now catering to demands from some global customers. The tooling industry’s evolution over the next 5 to 10 years will be mindboggling. While Indian tooling companies lack the specialization that the global market demands, the scenario is slowly changing. Indian toolmakers are adopting the latest technologies, like their global counterparts. I feel that the Indian tooling industry has major export potential.” 

D Shanmugasundaram, Vice President, TAGMA India, said, “We are all aware that we come from the industry that forms the backbone of the manufacturing sector. The tooling industry is often referred to as the mother industry because without toolmakers no product development can take place in any industry be it automotive, aerospace & defence, packaging, electronics, toy making, or railways, among others. Toolmakers, if you carefully observe, every industry is brimming with a plethora of opportunities. Undoubtedly, the pandemic is still posing challenges. But the overall future looks promising. After the success of ‘Make in India’, we are optimistic that the ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’ campaign will help us grow further.”
