Euromold 2015 Conference to Focus on Future of 3D Printing & Additive Manufacturing

Euromold is one of the biggest trade shows devoted to 3D printing and additive manufacturing (AM) technologies worldwide. The organizers have compiled a three-day conference from September 23-25, 2015, where top experts and opinion leaders explain the impact of these technologies in the future. In order to bring added value to every visitor of Euromold, all conference keynotes will be accessible free of charge.

On September 22, Euromold will begin with a sharpened profile and revised concept that will help propel the event into the future. In this context, a powerful three-day international conference has been carefully organized around the exciting future of 3D printing and additive manufacturing. Transitioning the technology into production has problems and challenges, so the conference will address them and other issues related to its future.

Additional topics of the conference include high-end applications in aerospace and medicine, as well as details on the nascent AM ecosystem. The first day of the conference will be under the theme "Global Visions of the Future" and will reveal the status of 3D printing in many regions of the world.

Special highlights of the conference include keynotes by Jeff Kowalski, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of Autodesk (USA), Professor Dr. Jules Poukens, Cranio-maxillofacial Surgeon at the University of Hasselt and Leuven (Belgium), a pioneer in the use of 3D printing implants, and of Stephen Nigro, Senior Vice President of Hewlett-Packard (USA). These keynotes are available to every visitor at no charge.

Among others that will participate in the conference: Dr. Edward D. Herd Rick (Additive Technologies Leader at GE). He will give an overview of the use of additive manufacturing at GE. William J. Cass Esq. (Partner, Co-Chair Litigation Department, Cantor Colburn LLP) will address the topic of Intellectual Property. Especially interesting for the Euromold - where traditionally classic tool construction and the new method of additive manufacturing are side by side - will be a presentation by Lou Young (New Business Development Director, Tooling & Manufacturing, Linear Mold & Engineering). His subject is the opportunities that arise by conformal cooling channels in injection molds.

Also of special interest is the panel discussion on the first day of the conference. Participants include Ed Davis (Chief Technologist and Senior Strategy Manager, Multi Jet Fusion at HP), Hilde Sevens (Director of Business Development, Autodesk), Emmett Lalish (Senior Mechanical Engineer at Microsoft, USA) and Wilfried Vancraen (CEO of Materialise).

Euromold will take place from September 22-25, 2015 at the exhibition Center in Düsseldorf, Germany.
