Mould Source is a new moldmaking show being organized by the Canadian Plastics Industry Association. It will take place April 26-27, 2000 at the International Centre in Toronto.
After consultation with CPIA’s Mould Making Council, it was decided to limit exhibitor categories to 29 types of moldmaking equipment, components, supplies and services. “We’re particularly interested in attracting as exhibitors those smaller job shops who provide vital services to moldmakers,” says CPIA show director Sally Damstra. “Therefore, we’re keeping exhibiting costs extremely reasonable.”
A series of short seminars on moldmaking topics, and a job fair are being planned as part of the event. The show is expected to attract attendance from mold, tool and diemakers, plastics processors with in-house moldmaking shops or the need for mold servicing, and design houses.
Close to one hundred booths are available, with no one exhibitor having more than four booths.

FREE ISO 14000 SUPPORT TO MEET AUTOMAKER DEADLINE
The ISO 9000/14000 Support Group has offered free membership to all Ford and GM suppliers interested in obtaining ISO 14000 information. Both automotive companies now require suppliers to conform to this international standard for environmental management.
“We feel the best course of action is to network the suppliers together so that they can freely discuss problems and opportunities from obtaining ISO 14000 registration,” says Richard Clements, group leader of the support group.
