Euromold 2016 to Colocate With AIRTEC 2016

Written by

The Euromold world fair for product development, mold, pattern, toolmaking, and 3D printing will be held this year from October 25-27, 2016 at the Exhibition Center in Munich, Germany. The fair will be held together with AIRTEC 2016, the annual event for the aerospace industry for high ranking experts and managers from all over the world.

"High tech events belong to high tech regions", according to Helmut Brandl, representative of the German model and patternmaking association and member of the exhibitor board of Euromold. Euromold follows this motto after one stay in North Rhine Westphalia moving this year to the Exhibition Center Munich in the heart of the high tech region Bavaria. With this decision, Euromold fulfills the increasing requests and wishes from many representatives of the industry to move to the Bavarian capital.

Like no other European region, Bavaria aims for future, innovation, industry, technology and science. The Bavarian government sets various strong directions in order to guarantee the economic prosperity on the top level of the world economies of the following decades. There is a significant reason that Bavaria with Munich and its surroundings demonstrate such a concentration of TecDAX enterprises. But also smaller and medium- sized producing companies and numerous start-ups and craftsmanship companies are at "home in Munich" - proudly, this is commented as "Munich Mixture"

Airtec, the international aerospace supply fair, has demonstrated this last year and according to the exhibitors moving AIRTEC to Munich was due. The synergy of the two exhibitions is therefore a main reason for the decision to move with Euromold 2016 to Munich. As a world meeting-place for 3D printing and additive manufacturing - the closeness to the aerospace industry is more than evident. Like Peter Sander, Manager Emerging Technologies at Airbus, was recently mentioned in the press, that Airbus will save with every A350-900 one ton weight per aircraft by the use of 3D printing.

Obviously, the aerospace industry is the main user of 3D printing and a driving innovation power. According a recent study of the association Bitcom, 64% of the interviewed aerospace companies, believe that smart production/advanced manufacturing will take care until 2030, that the production of aircraft parts will be self organized and more or less automatically produced and 51% believe that the production of aircrafts and aircraft parts will take place by the use of 3D printing. The exchange over trade boundaries like automotive and aerospace industries was always a target of Euromold - in consequence, this year together with AIRTEC in Munich. Visitors of the two events can meet with one common ticket up to 600 exhibitors from 45 nations.

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.

EuroMold 2015 Moves to Düsseldorf, Germany

Written by

“EUROMOLD has been setting the direction for industrial application development, moldmaking and tooling, and additive manufacturing for 20 years,” says Dr. Eberhard Döring, Trade Fair Manager of EUROMOLD. “For example, the additive manufacturing community had already been gathering at EUROMOLD when others were not even familiar with the topic. That is one of the reasons why we have established ourselves as number one in the world in this field. Now the time has come to expand the core concept and make some course corrections. We are going to do so boldly, with full dedication and commitment to the future of our event.”

In detail this means a new exhibition site in the future, namely Düsseldorf, new dates from September 22-25, 2015 and concept expansions and improvements. Since both tooling and moldmaking as well as the additive manufacturing/3D printing communities are very strong at EUROMOLD, closely linking these two fields is essential. This is important in order to position the business locations Germany and Europe for the future, both for classic moldmaking and tooling and for the new technologies. In the sense of a pilot project, this process has already started during the recent EUROMOLD. To remain the first address for all questions related to industrial application development, the fields of Industrial Design and Engineering will be significantly expanded. New visitor groups and industries are being actively recruited. Significant investments are being made here.

“In response to repeated requests from our customers, EUROMOLD 2015 will now be held from September 22-25, 2015” adds Diana Schnabel, EUROMOLD Trade Fair Manager. “The decision to change venues was made in the short term, so that we only had the opportunity for detailed discussions with all stakeholders and to weigh all arguments afterwards. We wish to sincerely apologise for the short notice! This is something we would have liked to avoid.”

Something else that is important to the trade fair organisers: In January customers will be invited to Düsseldorf so they can see the new exhibition site in person. This is also when the expanded and adapted trade fair concept will be presented and discussed. “With the move to Düsseldorf, we now have the opportunity to incorporate the needs and wishes of our customers in the trade fair concept,” says Schnabel.

Here are some facts about the recent EUROMOLD 2014: This year there were 56,912 visitors from 95 countries at EUROMOLD. A total of 36,993 of the visitors came from Germany and 19,919 from abroad. Most of the international guests came from the Netherlands (9%), Italy (7%), France (7%) and Switzerland (5%). Visitors from Qatar, Uruguay and Moldavia as well as from ten other nations also attended for the first time.

EUROMOLD once again had more than 1,000 exhibitor companies from 34 different countries this year. Tooling and moldmaking at 28% accounted for the largest proportion. This corresponds to the high level of the previous year. The second and third-largest shares were made up by exhibitor companies from the rapid prototyping & tooling (12%) and the model and prototype construction segments (9%), which also grew compared to 2013. The proportion of national exhibitors was 58.2% while the percentage of international exhibitors increased from 40.8% to 41.8% compared to 2013. 29% were first-time exhibitors. Most of them were German companies (113), including the segments of moldmaking and tooling (63%), rapid prototyping & tooling (34%) and software and hardware (28%).

Terry Wohlers once again wowed the audience with his conference on the topic “The Truth Behind the AM Supply Chain” this year, setting a new attendance record with more than 120 participants. Attendance at the other conferences and forums was very good as well. Forums on a wide variety of topics complementing the trade fair themes offered more than 140 speakers with interesting presentations for the visitors. Additive manufacturing and tooling, design+engineering, materials, the exhibitor presentation forum and the CAE forum were very well attended as well. The special exhibition “Additive Manufacturing and Tooling” presented in cooperation with the companies BILLION, EOS, FADO, InfusionTech, LBC Engineering, Listemann Technology AG, Mimotec SA, PEP - Centre Technique de la Plasturgie et des Composites, Simcon, SINGLE Temperiertechnik GmbH and Texer Design is planned for the coming EUROMOLD following its success this year.

The international purmundus challenge, the 3D design contest under the motto “Print up your life – How does 3D printing change our world?” was held for the third time already. Young international designers submitted 3D product ideas that appealed with their creativity, simultaneously setting themselves apart with their suitability for everyday use and social added value. Products were awarded in the categories best concept and best product.

More than 200 enthusiastic students were instructed with real-life examples in what is known as the “3D School”. During the entire trade fair, the British TCT Bright Minds program presented a classroom where hundreds of students seized the opportunity to familiarize themselves with CAD, 3D printing technologies, 3D scanning, the haptic-based 3D mouse and the 3D printer in a workshop.

The hydroforming, lightweight construction, thermoforming, design+engineering, virtual reality + simulation, materials, turning + milling and campus theme parks were met with great interest among the trade fair visitors as well. Expanding the theme parks is planned for the coming year.

EUROMOLD 2015 is being held from September 22-25, 2015 at the Düsseldorf exhibition site.

EuroMold 2014 Increases International Focus

Written by

EuroMold – the World Fair for Moldmaking and Tooling, Design and Application Development – is increasing the competitive ability and independence of German companies by means of a consistent international orientation – with a proportion of foreign exhibitors at approx. 50%, around 60 first-time exhibitors from abroad, and a majority of exhibitors representing the tooling & moldmaking and the rapid prototyping industries.

The 21st EuroMold, which is to take place at the end of November 2014 at the exhibition center in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, will again present itself as a globally positioned trade fair. From November 25-28, 2014 approximately 1,000 exhibitors from some 32 countries will meet around 50,000 international visitors from all areas of industry. This makes EuroMold by far the most international trade fair within its field. Furthermore, there are no comparable trade fairs with so many world premieres and examples of the most recent trends from across the entire sector.

At this year’s trade fair, the organizers are expecting the proportion of foreign visitors to be around 50%. As things currently stand, there will be approximately 40 first-time exhibitors from Germany and around 60 first-time exhibitors from abroad represented at the trade fair. The majority of the foreign first-time exhibitors will be made up primarily of Portuguese mold- and toolmakers, as well as companies from the Netherlands, Great Britain, France and China. Mold- and toolmaking is thus the largest industrial sector represented at the trade fair, followed by rapid prototyping & tooling and the accessories and peripheral devices manufacturing industry. Alongside these, representatives from all other areas of the overall process chain are expected to be present, for example from the engineering, design, machine tooling and software sectors.

Eberhard Döring, Manager of the EuroMold trade fair, commented: “In contrast, other trade fairs that have a national focus bring together mainly German exhibitors and visitors, by no means displaying state-of-the-art technology and failing to offer these numerous opportunities to establish business contacts around the world that can be found at EuroMold. Within a global market, it is apparent that German companies enter new markets with international partners. In this regard, EuroMold serves as the world’s only platform that has been established within its field for several years and can offer an incomparably broad variety of international companies from the entire industrial process chain. Once again in 2014, companies will benefit from our international orientation within the global market.”

On 400sqm all important aspects of the deeply rooted German industrial sector will be presented in hall 8.0. Germany with its superb know-how and more than 5000 companies in the moldmaking and tooling-sector plays a leading role in production, which is essential for a successful industrial nation.

"German Moldmaking – We create values“

Under the motto "German Moldmaking – We create values“, the special show presents a selection of innovative exhibits and projects of German companies. Dr. Ing. Eberhard Döring, CEO of EuroMold states: "The German moldmaking and tooling sector is a key industry for Germany and needs to remain here“. In a medium and long term German moldmakers will only be able to maintain their technological leadership against other countries like China or USA, if they sustainably expand their fi eld of expertise and share it among themselves.

The special show "innovations through Moldmaking and Tooling“, matches this interface. New methods like the early involvement of toolmakers in the product development can be highly effective to reach overall goals like guaranteeing high precision and quality. New forms of cooperation offer a serious potential for innovative product development. The most important requirement for this is an intense cross linking of all related players in the moldmaking and tooling sector.

The special show will be accompanied by a job fair and an information area, where job descriptions about tooling and career opportunities for young technicians and engineers will be presented. Universities and human resources experts will additionally give an outlook on future developments of labour markets and promising fields of study. For graduates, careers entrants, young professionals and companies this is a great occasion to gain valuable insights and make important personal contacts. The special show therefore makes a valuable contribution to the promotion of young talents.

As per (July 1, 2011) EuroMold has increased the number of international exhibitors especially in Europe – among others from Portugal, Czech Republic, Italy as well as Switzerland. Korea as a partner country can significantly increase its exhibitor’s presence. The high internationality is also reflected by the number of first time exhibitors. Six Months ahead of the show 57 companies from 16 countries have already signed up for the first time. Most of them come from Germany, Italy, France, Great Britain and Turkey. Predominantly these exhibitors are involved in Moldmaking and Tooling (35.1% of first time exhibitors), Design and Engineering, Simulation and VR which also emphasis the rising importance of these technology areas at EuroMold.

EuroMold specific sectors
Moldmaking and Tooling sector makes up for 40.3% of all exhibitors at EuroMold, followed by “Rapid Prototyping and Tooling” (16.8%) and Tools (15.5%) Other important areas of the process chain are the areas of “Machine Tools” (15.3%), “Patternmaking + Prototyping” (15%), Software & Hardware (13.9%) and Engineering (11.6%)

Partner Country Korea
Korea plays a significant role as an Asian industry nation. Next to the Korean companies the Korean research institutions and relevant trade associations, such as KODMIC, will present themselves at EuroMold 2011. Additional opportunities for collaboration will be shown at the one-day FORUM Partner Country KOREA. An important milestone in the relationship between Korea and Europe is the Free Trade Agreement (EFTA), which was introduced on July 1st, 2011. Relations with the EU, that has already become second largest trading partner of Korea after China, are further strengthened as a result of the agreement. For most of the exports from EU to Korea the customs will be void according to the Free Trade Agreement. Consequently the German machine engineering and plant engineering will benefit as well as other industry areas.

Highlights and Special Themes
At EuroMold 2011 the latest technologies showcased by the exhibitors will be flanked by innovative workshops and special shows.

‘e-Production for Everyone’, which takes place already for the third time at EuroMold, became a spectator magnet in hall 11 since its premiere and underwent a spectacular development. At EuroMold 2011 this special show in hall 11 will provide insight to trends and future applications of additive manufacturing.

“Innovations through Moldmaking and Tooling” is a new special show in hall 8. With the slogan “German Moldmaking – we create value” and covering about 400sqm the show will illustrate specific exhibits as well as Moldmaking and Tooling as the key technologies emphasising on Germany as the industry center. The special show is complemented by a field of education in which the various training opportunities in Moldmaking and Tooling are presented.

Hall 11 = ‘House of Creation’
The new, modern hall 11 becomes ‘House of Creation’, another highlight at EuroMold 2011. ‘House of Creation’ will comprise the sectors ‘Design + Engineering’, ‘Materials’, ‘Simulation + VR’ and ‘Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing’. Thus it creates a unique market place for modern product development. Apart from this EuroMold has already established itself for years as the biggest and most important market place for additive manufacturing (Rapid X technologies) in Europe.

International conferences, forums and workshops
In 2011, EuroMold highlights several international conferences as well as numerous forums and workshops, with their importance as international contacts, innovation and technology exchange.
