EuroMold 2010: Innovative Special Topics and a rapidly emerging host country

The 17th EuroMold, World Fair for Moldmaking and Tooling, Design and Application Development, will take place Dec 1 – 4, 2010. The show expects about 1,500 exhibitors from 45 countries and approximately 60,000 trade visitors. With the host country Turkey and many innovative special feature shows EuroMold once again will present several highlights and fur-ther extend its position as the leading international trade fair for product development.

On an area 75,000 m² EuroMold will present latest trends in all sectors of product development in the halls 8, 9 and 11 as well as in the Galleria. At EuroMold 2010 Turkey will be the partner country, a mostly dynamic emerging market which provides great opportunities for the sector of moldmaking and tooling. Further highlights at EuroMold 2010 will be the special feature shows “Energy Efficiency and Moldmaking” and “e-Production for everyone” as well as top-class conferences, forums and workshops.

The unique EuroMold fairs concept “From Idea to Prototype to Series Production” clearly illustrates the entire process chain. Here all parties involved in product development will be united – form designers, to moldmakers, machine tool producers, 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 2010 will gather exhibitors from at least 45 countries. As per today (July 1, 2010) EuroMold has increased the number of international exhibitors – among others from South Korea (+66.7 % compared to same period of previous year), Turkey (60.0 %), UK (+55.6 %), Spain (+16.7 %) and France (+10.5 %).
The high internationality is also reflected by the number of first time exhibitors. Six Months ahead of the show 63 companies from 16 countries have already signed up for the first time. Most of them come from Germany, Turkey, Italy, China, Japan and Spain. Predominantly these exhibitors are involved in moldmaking and tooling, design and engineering, simulation and VR which also emphasis the rising importance of these technology areas at EuroMold.

EuroMold specific sectors
23.9 % of all exhibitors are in the field of ‚Moldmaking and Tooling’. Hence, this is the most represented sector of EuroMold followed by ‘Rapid Prototyping and Tooling’ (9.9 %). The third biggest area is ‘Simulation + VR’ with 8.9 % (a raise with 5.9% compared to 2009). 5.8 % of all exhibitors which have signed up so far are active in the field of ‘Design’, a growth of 38.1 % compared to 2009.

Partner Country Turkey
Turkey will be the partner country at EuroMold 2010. It is one of the fastest growing emerging markets and has already achieved a very important position within the scope of automotive and electronic industry. Hence, the country offers great chances for mold- and toolmakers. DEMAT GmbH, the organiser of EuroMold, has already establish partnerships with several renowned Turkish institutions such as The National Turkish Association of Moldmakers UKUB, The Machine Tool Association MIB and The Society of Designers ETMK. Consequently the number of Turkish exhibitors has increased strongly compared to last year (+60.0 %). Most exhibitors from Turkey are involved in moldmaking and tooling (38.9 %) and engineering (11.1 %).

Highlights and Special Topics
At EuroMold 2010 the latest technologies showcased by the exhibitors will be flanked by innovative workshops and special feature shows.
‘e-Production for Everyone’ which premiered and became a spectator magnet at EuroMold 2009 will be extended and cultivated. At EuroMold 2010 this special feature show in hall 11 will provide insight to trends and future application of additive manufacturing.
‘Energy Efficiency and Moldmaking’ is a new special feature show at EuroMold 2010. In hall 8.0 exhibitors will show the innovative implementation of energy efficiency and sustainability within moldmaking and tooling. The show covers 270 m² and offers several live demonstrations and first-hand information, whereas temperature control and cast-on technique play an important part.

New: Hall 11 = ‘House of Creation’
The new, modern hall 11 becomes ‘House of Creation’, another highlight at EuroMold 2010. ‘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
Various international specialist conferences and several forums and workshops underscore the importance of EuroMold 2010 as an international contact, innovation and technology market.

The 12th consecutive ‚Wohlers Conference’ entitled “The Business Impact of Additive Manufacturing” will be conducted at EuroMold on December 3, 2010. Furthermore conferences will take place with regards to the topics ‘Partner Country Turkey’, ‘Industrial and Car Design’ as well as ‘Materials’.

Innovative forums on the subject areas of ‘Design+Engineering’, ‘Materials’, ‘Simulation and VR’ and for the first time ‘Boat Building’ will be provided at EuroMold 2010. EuroMold visitors have free attendance. The Material forum and conference will be organised in co-operation with Deutsche Gesellschaft für Materialkunde (DGM).
Additionally EuroMold supports the international design and construction competition Formula Student. For the third time a workshop will be held at the show in order to mediate the characteristics within the development of racing cars.

Attractive framework programme
The famous EuroMold Exhibition Party will take place on Thursday December 2, 2010. As usual we provide a variety of excellent food and top class entertainment.
