Press conference on the opening of EuroMold 2014

The EuroMold 2014 World Fair for Moldmaking and Tooling, Design and Application Development opens from the 25th to the 28th of November 2014 with exhibitions, forums and conferences – More than 1,000 exhibitors present the latest trends in Industry 4.0 in the Frankfurt trade fair halls – With the focus on the interaction between various technologies – The next generation is enthusiastic about 3D printing

Frankfurt/Main, 26th November 2014: Until the 28th of November 2014, EuroMold 2014 is presenting the latest developments and trends in the fields of moldmaking and tooling, design and application development. The exhibition halls of Frankfurt am Main will be a hive of activity as more than 1,000 companies from 34 different countries showcase the future of product development. For four days decision-makers from all over the world will come together to discuss the technological developments in their sectors and ensure a lively exchange of information. As an international top event, EuroMold not only offers its visitors numerous new products and innovations, but also an attractive programme of lectures, forums, B2B meetings and much more.

As trade fair director Eberhard Döring emphasised at the opening press conference, the interaction between toolmaking and additive manufacturing this year takes centre stage as one of the exhibition highlights. In Hall 8.0 visitors will have the opportunity to see what the potential is when new and established technologies are intelligently integrated into the existing process chain and synergy effects are created for all involved. E. Döring continues: “In the future, manufacturers will increasingly channel investment into the technology of the future, Industry 4.0. EuroMold 2014 showcases, among other things, these cyber-physical systems (CPS). Small networks of computers equipped with sensors and actuators that are installed as so-called “embedded systems” in materials, equipment and machine parts, and interconnected via the Internet.”

In her speech, Ms Diana Schnabel, director of the trade fair organiser DEMAT GmbH, emphasised the vital economic importance of the fair for all sectors of industrial production such as moldmaking, design, rapid prototyping, engineering and software solutions, as well as for Germany as an exporting country industrial location. Diana Schnabel: “The 21st EuroMold 2014 now moves into its third decade of presenting the highlights in the sectors of moldmaking and tooling, design and application development. This makes EuroMold the undisputed market leader and as a world-leading trade fair, indispensable for exhibitors and visitors from the industry.”

Prof Dirk Landgrebe, Managing Director of the Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology (IWU), placed emphasis on the importance of EuroMold as a driver of innovation and its relevance to the field of research and development. Helmut Brandl of the Federal Association of German Association for Model and Moldmaking pointed out that EuroMold is an ideal platform for exchanging information and experiences on current developments around model and moldmaking. Andy Middleton, general manager of Stratasys, spoke on the topic of industrial 3D printing and the road to the “factory of the future”. David Muller, Business Unit Process and Mold Manager at PEP (Centre Technique de la Plasturgie et des composites) explained the synergy between additive manufacturing and toolmaking and João Faustino, President of Cefamol and CEO of TJ Moldes, stressed the importance of EuroMold, especially in international comparison, for the toolmaking sector.

In addition to the traditional exhibition stands, EuroMold also hosts specialised forums and conferences to impart in-depth knowledge about certain developments and discuss these with the audience of trade professionals. In addition to the design + engineering forum and the CAE Forum, lectures on additive manufacturing, such as in the context of the high-level Terry Wohlers conference, as well as seminars on the new DIN standard and organisational forms are presented.

Many trade fair visitors eagerly await the winner of the purmundus challenge. Celebrating its third year of cooperation with EuroMold, this international design competition focusing on the topic of 3D printing is aimed at students and design agencies. The finalists are presented for all visitors to the exhibition to see and are judged by an international jury. The winners are announced and will receive their awards during the trade fair.

EuroMold is traditionally aimed at all areas of industrial production and this year it will again attract users from the automotive, electrical and electronics industries, medical technology, consumer goods, aviation and aerospace, leisure and sport.

On Wednesday the 26th of November 2014 at 3 pm (or by appointment), there will be a press tour of the exhibition that will provide an overview of the various hall areas and an opportunity to acquaint journalists with exhibiting companies.
