Euromold 2015 A showcase for the international tool & mould industry
Germany - Euromold organiser Demat announced more than 425 exhibitors for Euromold 2015 in Düsseldorf (22 - 25 September 2015). The topic of 3D printing and additive manufacturing continues to be a focal point.
"We are very pleased with the current number of registrations for Euromold 2015, Diana Schnabel, CEO of Demat, said weeks ahead of the exhibition. “The registrations we received until now are a clear indication of our efforts to jointly develop the exhibition with our exhibitors. Euromold remains the largest international platform for 3D printing, product development, mould making and tooling.” According to
Schnabel, 56% of registered exhibitors come from abroad, with 76% coming from Europe, 4% from North America and 27% from Asia (20.5% from China) (latest figures from 28 July 2015).
The topic of 3D printing and additive manufacturing continues to be a focal point of the exhibition, Demat emphasised and added that 36.2% of registered exhibitors come from the field of AM/3D printing. Although many companies have already committed to other events such as Formnext in Frankfurt, Schnabel emphasised that a commitment to other events does normally not rule out a company's participation in Euromold. The show was still the most important event for this industry sector.

Euromold to see old hands and new faces
After Euromold's move to Düsseldorf, organiser Demat earlier this year named specific registered exhibitors. Among these are long-standing Euromold exhibitors such as Meusburger, Hasco, Knarr, Voxeljet, Keyence and Werth Messtechnik, Demat said. But there is also a range of new exhibitors. “Apart from our long-time exhibitors, who have remained loyal to us in great numbers – also in regard to the move to Düsseldorf – we find many new exhibitors as well, especially from the additive manufacturing and 3D printing industries with their booming and dynamic companies from Asia and the United States,” Demat managing director Diana Schnabel said. She emphasised the new hall layout, which will connect the different Euromold areas much better than in the past. For instance, exhibitors from the 3D printing industry will be under the same roof as mould and toolmakers, machinery suppliers and service providers.
Schnabel is also confident that Euromold's partnerships with Terry Wohlers and the US-based Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) will strengthen the show and the topic of additive manufacturing. “Specifically important is the fact that SME organises “Rapid”, the worldwide biggest and most important congress in its field,” she said. A similar conference is planned for Euromold. The three-day conference covers all topics related to the future of 3D printing and additive manufacturing, including the transition from design to series production, applications in aerospace and the medical industry, as well as the nascent additive manufacturing ecosystem. All keynotes will be free of charge.
