Amerimold 2021 Announces New Dates
Amerimold 2021 will also be co-located with Molding 2021, the Extrusion Conference and Rotoplas, providing attendees with a more comprehensive experience.
As the moldmaking market begins to rebound from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, Amerimold has chosen new dates for the 2021 edition of its annual tradeshow. Amerimold 2021 will now take place September 22-23 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois.
Despite the current pandemic, economic projections forecast a potential rebound for the potent moldmaking industry in the United States. According to Steve Kline Jr., Gardner Business Media’s chief data officer, a potential upside of $500 million per year in United States mold production is possible once economic conditions return to normal. “Based on the Gardner Business Index, the plastics processing and moldmaking industries are the first in manufacturing to start growing after the start of the pandemic,” he says. “As more plastic part production moves to the U.S. due to the shift in global supply chains, the U.S. moldmaking industry should see favorable conditions.”
Amerimold will take place during this potentially booming recovery period. The tradeshow, which has been running since 1999, connects the owners, management, production personnel and engineers involved in the complete lifecycle of the design, manufacture and maintenance of a mold. The event includes an exhibit hall, Tech Talks, and supply chain sourcing events to connect buyers and sellers of necessary manufacturing services.
Amerimold 2021 will also be co-located with three outstanding programs that will add value to those attending the show. Molding 2021 will feature industry leaders discussing the latest developments and various molding processes, equipment, materials, tooling and management techniques that are driving the industry, with a special emphasis on adding value to businesses. Gardner Business Media’s Extrusion Conference and Rotoplas, which is presented by the Association of Rotational Molders, will complete the lineup and provide attendees with a more comprehensive educational experience.
In many die and mold shops, the choice between ram EDM and CNC milling is far less clear than it used to be. Changing technology is changing the rules.
This shop finds stable milling speeds quickly using a systematic pattern of test cuts.
U.S. molders are now buying their tooling from U.S. mold builders. Precise Tooling Solutions illustrates this, and its owner makes the case for why the tariff matters.
