EuroMold 2011: Innovative Special Themes – Stand expansion – Exhibiting area growing by 4.1%

Innovations through Moldmaking and Tooling, Engineering Services and Partner Country Korea.

The  18th  EuroMold,  World  Fair  for  Moldmaking  and Tooling, Design and Application  Development, will take place Nov. 29 – Dec. 2, 2011.  The show expects  about  1,500 exhibitors from 45 countries and approximately 60,000 trade  visitors. EuroMold presenting a positive development: the exhibition area  growing  by  4.1%  in  comparison  to  the  same period in 2011, many exhibitors  have  expanded their stands. With the partner country Korea and many  innovative  special  shows  EuroMold  once again will present several highlights  and  further  extend  its position as the leading international trade fair for product development.

EuroMold shows in halls 8, 9, 11 and the “Galleria” the latest developments in  all  areas  of product development on an area of 75,000 m². This year’s highlights  being  the partner country Korea, the special show “Innovations through  Moldmaking  and  Tooling,  “e-Production  for everyone” as well as high-class conferences, forums and workshops.

The  unique  EuroMold  fair  concept  “From  Idea  to  Prototype  to Series Production”  clearly illustrates the entire process chain. Here all parties involved  in  product  development  will  be  united  –  from designers, to moldmakers, machine tool producers, and subcontractors to users. Core areas at  EuroMold  are  of  course  Moldmaking  and  Tooling  as  well  as Rapid Prototyping,  Patternmaking and Prototypes, CAD/CAM, Simulation/VR, Machine Tools and Tools, Engineering and Design.

Large attendance from abroad – first time exhibitors from 16 countries EuroMold  2011  will  gather  exhibitors from at least 45 countries. As per today  (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 will be 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. The 13th consecutive ‚Wohlers Conference’ entitled “Design Innovation from Additive Manufacturing” will be conducted at EuroMold on Thursday, Dec.1, 2011.

EuroMold presents three new conferences, that are offered in cooperation with “Haus der Technik” in Essen: the two-day conference Injections molds (Nov. 29 – 30, 2011), “Developing with plastic materials” conference (Nov.30, 2011) as well as the “Pre-calculation of injection molding” (Dec. 1,  2011).

In addition EuroMold presents for the first time “Strategies and Trends in Moldmaking and Tooling” conference, which is organised in cooperation with the “Süddeutschen Kunststoffzentrum, Würzburg” on November 30, 2011.

Furthermore, EuroMold 2011 traditionally presents the forum “design + engineering” in hall 11.0 with sessions in areas of “design + engineering”, “Simulation and VR”, “Rapid Prototyping” and “Industrial design”. The two-day forum “Partner Country Korea” will take place in hall 9.0. The participations at these forums are free of charge for the visitors of EuroMold.

Additionally EuroMold supports the international design and construction competition Formula Student. For the fourth time a workshop will be held at the show in order to mediate the characteristics within the development of racing cars on Dec. 2, 2011.
