Euro Mold Show

Euro Mold Show

EuroMold 2002, billed as a “World Fair for Mold Making and Tooling, Design, and Application Development,” will be held December 4–7, 2002 at the Frankfurt Exhibition Center in Frankfurt, Germany. EuroMold is a convenient annual business-to-business shopping bazaar. The theme of this year’s show is “From Design to Prototyping to Series Production.”

Design and engineering companies will display their services as a clustered group in Hall 9.2. This “design+engineering” forum by show management DEMAT GmbH is also the location for exhibitor lectures. Other special features in Hall 9.2 include a corporate stand for companies specializing in virtual product development, a demonstration of the economic advantages to be realized when process-chain participants practice collaborative engineering, and a presentation on new ways of designing, prototyping, and making moulds and tools for product developers in key industries, including the aircraft and automotive sectors.

Exhibitor lectures will run throughout the show in Hall 9.1, focusing on themes such as e-manufacturing in all phases of a product’s life cycle, laser sinter technologies, “Visualization and Collaboration,” and many others. This year there will also be two conferences about rapid tooling.

The tool and mould making sector is the heart of the fair, with over a quarter of exhibitors from this group. This year’s event is also being used by more hard metal and precision toolmakers. Other industries that will have a strong presence at EuroMold 2002 are modeling and prototyping, rapid prototyping, machine tools, software and hardware, engineering, tool supply, design services, and materials.
