Opening of EuroMold 2013:
World Fair Presents the Latest
EuroMold in its anniversary year has opened at the Messe Frankfurt exhibition centre and will offer numerous highlights for visitors in the coming days. The trade fair is going to present state-of-the-art products, serve as a platform for networking within the industry, discuss developments and surprise visitors with numerous promotions. Demand for online tickets was once again high this year, so that a large number of national and international decision-makers can be expected to be in attendance. The number of exhibitors will be slightly higher than last year at 1,056. Numerous B2B meetings will be held as well and high-ranking participants from industry and research are going to attend. With the special topics of lightweight construction, hybrid technology, hydroforming and thermoforming, EuroMold 2013 presents methods and processes that help manufacturers create new products more quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively. Strong partners from the fields of turning and milling technology are going to be among the exhibitors. There will be theme parks for the jewellery industry and dental technology. Efficient development and simulation processes are being offered along with special exhibitions on rotational moulds as well as VDI/NCG guidelines for evaluating the production quality of machine tools.
The topic of 3D printing technology is a very important element of EuroMold this year as well. The "DigiFabb" joint exhibition stand presents 3D printing for everyone and the latest developments are being presented in the course of the forum "3D Printing Vision for the Future". At the international Terry Wohlers Conference, visitors can inform themselves about the topic of "Business and Investment Opportunities in Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing". The international competition for design in 3D printing - the purmundus challenge 2013 - will once again recognise outstanding contributions this year.
For this year's partner country Italy, special exhibits of Italian manufacturers in various fields of industry are being presented and specific production processes vividly demonstrated in the "Casa Italia" (hall 9.0). Here the visitors will also be pampered by a shop concept with typical Italian products.

An e-mobility trial course is set up in hall 8.0, giving visitors an opportunity to try out many different electric vehicles by various manufacturers. This allows visitors to the trade fair to experience the current state-of-the-art up close and personally while taking a break from the trade fair.
