African exhibition company Exhibition Management Services (EMS) has acquired the AfriMold brand
A leading exhibition for precision machining, tooling, mould-making, design and application development in Africa, AfriMold becomes a component show of the South African Industry and Technology Fair (INDUTEC).
“We added the AfriMold Expo to the INDUTEC Fair because it is a perfect fit with the event’s other industrial and technological sectors,” says John Thomson of show organisers EMS.
“AfriMold is a vital networking hub for showcasing innovations and solutions in all stages of product development by local and international exhibitors.”
One of the key assets AfriMold will bring to the show will be its expertise in 3D printing, the company said.
“3D printing, or additive manufacturing, has advanced significantly since it was first developed,” says Ron Maclarty, EMS organiser of AfriMold.
“Originally, only plastic prototypes could be printed, but these machines can now handle materials like titanium and human cartilage, and produce almost any fully functional complex mechanism, with greater precision, at a faster rate, and at lower cost.”
A total of 12 exhibitions under the INDUTEC umbrella will showcase their equipment and services at Gallagher Convention Centre, Midrand, South Africa from 20-22 May 2015.
