Originally titled 'Amerimold 2016 Post Show Review'

Growth and Innovation Continue to Highlight Amerimold Exposition and Technical Conference

Amerimold, The Event for Mold Manufacturing, closed on June 16th, 2016, at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, MI. The two-day tradeshow, technical conference and networking event featured more than 3,000 participants, representing every aspect of the plastic injection molding cycle.

The Amerimold exhibit hall was the largest ever and included 200 exhibitors displaying products and services used for designing, building, injection molding and maintaining molds.

The 2016 Amerimold technical conference expanded from its traditional ENGINEER, BUILD, MAINTAIN to include a new MOLD track focusing on process issues related to both molders and moldmakers. More than 40 industry experts presented on technologies ranging from mold design and data driven manufacturing to automated machining and advanced mold maintenance strategies.

This year Amerimold was co-located with the Thermoplastic Composites Conference for Automotive (TCC Auto). Presented by CompositesWorld, Automotive Design and Production, and Plastics Technology, the conference featured presentations from materials and equipment suppliers, including new innovations in composites molding, such as injection overmolding and compression molding. 

Amerimold 2016 also continued its annual traditions. The “Top 10 Reasons to be a Moldmaker” and accompanying t-shirt were unveiled at the Moldmaking Technology booth, and the Leadtime Leader Award winners were announced. This year, the honor went to Krieger Craftsmen from Grand Rapids, Michigan.
