Amerimold 2012: A Wealth of Rapid Product Development Solutions

Running June 13 to 14, Amerimold connects moldmakers, molders, OEMs and rapid product development professionals representing all aspects of a product’s development.

Amerimold is a two-day trade show, technical conference and networking event that connects moldmakers, molders, OEMs and rapid product development professionals representing all aspects of a product's development—from concept to manufacture with a unique emphasis on design, engineering and prototyping. Originally titled the MoldMaking Expo, Amerimold has a deep history of serving the product and process technology needs of all sides of the mold business from design to build to repair to manage. Through co-locations with the National Plastics Exposition—NPE (plastics processing) and the Time Compression Expo (rapid prototyping) and a partnership with the world-renown Euromold show, Amerimold has evolved to offer an exhibit hall and conference program that serves the information and business needs of designers, engineers, manufacturers, managers and executives involved in all aspects of mold making and tooling, product design and product development.

Aside from the technologies on display, the event features complimentary keynotes being delivered by Joe Gibbs Racing, Roush and the Reshoring Initiative:

• Mark Bringle, Technical Sponsor and Marketing Director, Joe Gibbs Racing – Mr. Bringle will deliver a presentation that examines how JGR leverages CAE, FDM, metrology and CNC machining to take a concept from Monday to a finished part on a racecar by Wednesday. JGR will have a booth at Amerimold displaying a composite model car; components; parts and more.

• Gary Jurick, VP and GM, Roush Performance Products – Mr. Jurick will discuss the design and build of the 2013 Roush Stage 3 Mustang. Roush will have a booth at the show displaying the Mustang attached above. They will also display additive, injection molded and machined parts including a large injection mold and blow mold.

• Harry Moser, head of the Reshoring Initiative—On Wednesday, June 13th, Harry Moser will open the show with a panel discussion on “How to Bring Back Manufacturing.” Mr. Moser’s presentation will focus on the Reshoring Initiative, which aims to bring manufacturing work back by assisting companies in more accurately assessing the total cost of offshoring.

In addition, there will be focused conference sessions concentrating on mold manufacturing and additive manufacturing. The mold manufacturing sessions will operate as moderated panel discussions examining all aspects of the mold business—from conformal cooling and 5-axis machining to mold maintenance and workforce development. The additive manufacturing sessions will take more traditional conference format providing sessions on 3D printing, a look at the future of additive, additive materials and new technologies being developed and adopted in additive.
