Art meets additive manufacturing at EuroMold 2011

November 14, 2011

Additive manufacturing is not only showing huge potential for the production of complex, short run components, but is also opening up new avenues for artists and designers.

On show at this year’s EuroMold, Frankfurt, Germany, Nov 29 – Dec 2, will be work by the artist and product designer, Lionel T. Dean. Dean will demonstrate digital and production design that combines art, craft and design with the additive manufacturing method.

Among other works, Dean presents a 3D printed titanium gearshift. He shows the result of development in which artists and designers have experimented more and more with digital design and manufacturing capabilities over the past ten years.

“Direct Digital Manufacturing offers much more than complex structures to creative industries: it is a revolution that will allow us to invent new relationships to both, the customers and the production,” stated Dean, whose work can be seen in the Museum of Modern Art in New York. In contrast to mass production the direct production decreases the need for investment and allows the designers to response to niche markets or individual requirements.

Rapid technologies: conference programme and seminar

EuroMold will once again include the field of rapid technologies in its conference programme, and there will be a special seminar, ‘e-Production for everyone’.

The International Wohlers Conference 2011 takes place for the 13th time at EuroMold, under the motto ‘Design innovation from Additive Manufacturing’. The latest developments and applications will be also highlighted at the ‘design + engineering forum’ in hall 11 during the one day session on rapid prototyping.

Exhibitors at the show will present the latest materials, technologies and applications from stereo-lithography to metal laser sintering. The exhibition currently lists companies such as 3D Systems, Alphacam, Concept Laser, EOS, FIT, FKM, Fraunhofer, Materialise, Objet, Realizer, MTT/Renishaw, SLM Solutions, Stratasys, VG Kunststofftechnik and Z-Corporation.
