Efforts under way to revitalise tool, die and mouldmaking in SA
August 15, 2014 Editor 0
The South African tool, die and mouldmaking (TDM) industry is being revitalised to locally produce the tools, dies, moulds and fixtures required by the manufacturing sector. Local TDM capability is key to enable the manufacturing industry to remain competitive, says Toolmaking Association of South Africa (Tasa) regional secretary and Gauteng Tooling Initiative CEO Henk Snyman. The TDM industry collapsed from having 90% of tools made locally in the 1990s to less than 15% currently. This has led to job losses, the skills base vanishing and TDM skills development programmes becoming anachronistic and antiquated.
