Exhibitors in the joint “DigiFabb” stand at this year’s EuroMold world trade fair will showcase 3D printers, accessories and related services, and will offer presentations about the current state of the art, developments and promising perspectives for the technology.
Thanks to accumulated know-how and falling costs, 3D printers are no longer reserved exclusively for industry but are now accessible to consumers as well. It is said to be only a matter of time before individual 3D fabrication becomes part of our everyday lives.
“The further development of 3D printing technology has the potential to shake the existing and previously solid definitions of the entire process chain—such as those of the consumer and the producer,” says Dr. Eng. Eberhard Döring, EuroMold trade fair manager. “For EuroMold as a trendsetting trade fair, it is therefore merely logical to provide a platform for the latest and most interesting technologies and to demonstrate to what extent they will fundamentally define our daily lives in the very near future.”
In keeping with this topic, the purmundus challenge 2013 also will take place during EuroMold. This international design competition in 3D printing recognizes the work of designers, engineers and programmers in the categories of best innovative concept, best market-ready product and best user-friendly interface.
EuroMold 2013 will be held December 3-6, in Frankfurt, Germany. For more information, visit euromold.com.
