EuroMold presents the concept
for the 2014 edition of the leading trade fair
EuroMold, the world's leading specialist trade fair for moldmaking and tooling, design and application development, will take place from 25 - 28 November 2014 in exhibition halls 8, 9 and 11 in Frankfurt am Main. On 3 July 2014, a pre-fair press conference took place in the Grandhotel Hessischer Hof in Frankfurt. The Managing Directors of event organiser DEMAT GmbH, Diana Schnabel and Eberhard Döring presented the continually developing and unique profile of this global trade fair.
This year the trade fair is again expecting more than 1,000 exhibitors, along with an increase in international representation, with around 40 countries represented. Traditionally, the majority of the companies are moldmakers and tool manufacturers. Furthermore, there is already a high level of return bookings by former exhibitors, as well as new bookings from first-time exhibitors. The number of first-time exhibitors, currently standing at 88 exhibitors from 19 different countries, emphasises the high international quality of EuroMold 2014. The trade fair is experiencing a particular increase in the number of first-time exhibitors from Germany, Portugal, China, the Netherlands and Great Britain. In addition, an increase in the number of joint transnational stands, run by various associations and individual organisers, can be observed. For example, for the first time ever, there will be a joint stand from the Czech Republic and Slovenia.
In 2014, EuroMold will have a new hall structure, which will also spatially reflect the synergies between the fields of moldmaking & tool production and additive manufacturing in Hall 8.0. It is here that the "Stark im Formenbau mit Generativer Fertigung" (Strength in moldmaking with additive manufacturing) theme park will take place, at which various machine manufacturers and tool producers will demonstrate the possibilities offered by additive manufacturing for the more efficient manufacture of tools, with the help of practical examples. The connection between "lightweight construction and moldmaking" will be demonstrated in detail in a special exhibition. The CAE Forum, which deals with computer-aided engineering, considerably enhances the area of design and engineering. This is an ideal presentation platform, in particular for the increasing number of engineering service provider exhibitors.
This year the range of information will be extended to include new special exhibitions, conferences, workshops, seminars and forums. For example, one innovation will be the EuroMold 3D-School, which will demonstrate the possibilities of 3D printing to students. With the support of a printer manufacturer, a classroom will be installed in the trade fair hall in which students will receive classes.
The press conference was rounded off with presentations regarding various aspects of the trade fair, delivered by company representatives. Helmut Brandl, Marketing Manager for the Bundesverband Modell- und Formenbau (Federal Association of Modelling and Moldmaking), addressed the topic of "EuroMold with a focus on the process chain" and Els Zijlstra, Managing Director and founder of first-time exhibitor Materia B.V., spoke on the topic of the "Lightweight Challenge by Materia". Dr. Gregor Zimmermann, Managing Director of G.tecz Engineering Unternehmergesellschaft GmbH, gave a presentation entitled, "From Concrete to High-Tech Products - The next generation of cement-bonded materials".
The EuroMold is the only specialist trade fair within its field to present the entire industrial production process chain - in keeping with its slogan, "From idea to series production" - thus offering exhibitors unique synergy effects. It is now organised on five continents, including in the USA, Japan, China, India, Russia and Brazil. This contributes to the international networking of the participants and to ensuring global representation among the exhibiting companies. Visitors traditionally come from all areas of industry and range from development engineers and manufacturers to production experts and designers.
from 25 to 28. November 2014, Fair ground Frankfurt / Main, Germany
