Amerimold is back this year at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. The previously two-day exhibition now has expanded to three days to increase the amount of runtime for the exhibitors and attendees. From Tuesday, September 21 through Thursday, September 23, those involved in the North American moldmaking industry will trade ideas, increase their own knowledge and create new collaborations. 

AmerimoldThe show schedule begins Tuesday, September 21, with registration opening at 7:30 am and closing at 5:00 pm. Registration will be conducting during this time period on September 22 and 23 as well. The exhibit floor will be open from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on Tuesday and Wednesday, with exhibit floor hours ending at 3:00 pm on Thursday.

This year, Amerimold will be co-located with the Extrusion Conference and the Molding Conference, and all attendees of those conferences will have access to the Amerimold show floor. This will present the opportunity for discussions on the latest developments in molding alongside technical and business issues common to all types of extrusion. 

Amerimold 2021 will put the entire lifecycle of the mold on display, from the latest technology developments and mold building processes to the equipment, materials, tooling and management techniques that make a shop successful. With more than 100 exhibitors expected, moldbuilders, molders, engineers, designers and technicians can explore equipment and supply offerings to decrease downtime and increase productivity.

Education is a cornerstone of the event, and this year’s Amerimold features the free Tech Talk educational series, in-booth technology demonstrations and a one-of-a-kind sourcing component that connects OEMs with tier suppliers. With the focus on designing, building and maintaining molds, topics to be addressed include:

  • Accessing Data Faster with Visual Search
  • Applying 3D Printing to Mold Venting
  • Shorten Maintenance with DLC Coatings on Mold Components
  • A Look at Intelligent Hot Runners and Adaptive Tooling
  • Guidelines for Servo-Controlled Mold Functions
  • Using Automation to Connect Mold Engineering and Manufacturing
  • Exploring AM Materials for Tooling
  • And much more
  • Show management is working closely with the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, Rosemont Exposition Services and the City of Rosemont to ensure the event is hosted in compliance with CDC & EPA recommendations for attendee safety. Guidelines are subject to change, but currently do not include required masking.
