X Congress of Moulds Industry – Moulds e plastics Magazine 2020

The Congress of Moulds Industry which took place between the 22nd and 23rd of November 2019, was about the present and future of a sector which is united and determined to face the main challenges. 

“The capacity for collaboration, cooperation and the creation of a critical mass will be the structuring elements, both to differentiate ourselves and to place us one step ahead of our international competitors”. These words from the President of Cefamol, João Faustino, were one of the conclusions at the end of the ceremony, together with the statement that there are new challenges that require new solutions, such as rapid technological development and the assimilation of new processes, which will have a huge weight in business investment. 

The focus on integrating processes and technologies to achieve competitiveness is a key factor in an organization’s strategy. 

Valdemar Duarte, CEO of DRT Group, took part on the “Digitalization Challenges” panel. This panel reflected on the current technological development in which companies are positioned and on the prospects for the future in this field. 

Valdemar Duarte also presented the DRT case, in which technology has been adopted according to real needs and how, in this way, the company has managed to evolve and the work that DRT has been doing on new systems improves the production process and gives lifetime to company employees, associating Artificial Intelligence to the machine algorithms. 

In the Molde 124 magazine, it is possible to find the opinions and the various topics addressed by entrepreneurs in the mold industry. The various speakers defended that “it is imperative to continue to invest in the integration of processes, in new technologies, in strengthening knowledge and, at the same time, in consolidating the international image, the positioning of the sector’s excellence and notoriety”.
