EuroMold 2014 presented the latest developments and trends in the fields of moldmaking and tooling, design and application development. More than 1000 companies from 34 different countries showcased the future of product development. As an international top event, EuroMold not only offered its visitors numerous new products and innovations, but also an attractive programme of lectures, forums, B2B meetings and much more. The interaction between toolmaking and additive manufacturing took a centre stage as one of the exhibition highlights.In Hall 8.0 visitors had the opportunity to see what the potential is when new and established technologies are intelligently integrated into the existing process chain and synergy effects are created for all involved. In the future, manufacturers will increasingly channel investment into the technology of the future, Industry 4.0. EuroMold 2014 showcased, among other things, these cyberphysical systems (CPS): small networks of computers equipped with sensors and actuators that are installed as so-called “embedded systems” in materials, equipment and machine parts, and interconnected via internet. The fair has a vital economic importance for all sectors of industrial production such as moldmaking, design, rapid prototyping, engineering and software solutions, as well as for Germany as an exporting country industrial location. The 21st EuroMold 2014 moved into its third decade of presenting the highlights in the sectors of moldmaking and tooling, design and application development. This makes EuroMold the undisputed market leader and as a world-leading trade fair, indispensable for exhibitors and visitors from the industry. In addition to the traditional exhibition stands, EuroMold also hosted specialised forums and conferences to impart in-depth knowledge about certain developments and discuss these with the audience of trade professionals. In addition to the Design + Engineering Forum and the CAE Forum, lectures on additive manufacturing, such as in the context of the high-level Terry Wohlers Conference, as well as seminars on the new DIN standard and organisational forms were presented. Many trade fair visitors eagerly await the winner of the purmundus challenge. Celebrating its 3rd year of cooperation with EuroMold, this international design competition focusing on the topic of 3D printing is aimed at students and design agencies. The finalists were presented for all visitors to the exhibition to see and were judged by an international jury. The winners were announced and received their awards during the trade fair.
