Key Sector Moldmaking and Tooling
Traditionally EuroMold’s key sector is Moldmaking and Tooling. To meet the growing demand for complete solutions in this industrial sector EuroMold provides small and medium sized companies an excellent platform for finding partners and cooperations.
Wide range of Themes
EuroMold shows state-of-the-art technique for all industrial sectors. For instance innovations within “Virtual Reality” and “Rapid Prototyping” already today indicate the future developments of modern Moldmaking and Tooling.
At EuroMold worldwide leading companies set benchmarks – i.e. DMG and Trumpf in the sector of Machine Tools, and BASF, Bayer and Evonik in the sector of Materials.
Alongside Moldmaking and Tooling most exhibitors are active within Machine Tools, Soft- and Hardware and Prototyping. Numerous exhibitors which take part at EuroMold for the first time are active within Engineering and Design.
Origin of Exhibitors
With appr. 60 percent of all exhibitors Germany will be the leading country, although EuroMold`s international importance is growing – especially in the West European countries. Within the category of international exhibitors the relevance of Italy, France, Portugal, and Switzerland has grown strongly.
