METAL CHINA and CIDC 2019 Open Up New Markets

In 2018, the Chinese foundry industry has faced the biggest challenge of continued tightening of environmental protection and safety regulations. The industry is integrating, transforming, and gradually moving toward the middle- and high-end of the market. As the industry indicator, the 17th China International Foundry Expo (Metal China), the 13th China International Die Casting Industry Exhibition will be held in Shanghai from March 13 to 16, 2019. The exhibition closely follows the development trend of the industry and faces the pain-points, becoming the window to understand the transformation of the Chinese foundry industry, and is also the best platform to promote the integration of the Chinese and the world foundry industry. Below are highlights of this session.

1. Intelligent manufacturing and environmental protection

"Quality, efficiency, intelligence, green" are the mainstream in the development of foundry industry. In order to meet the needs of environmental protection/safety upgrading of the industry, to help enterprises have more choices in environmental protection and safety facilities transformation, and to find the most suitable solution, the organizer will specially create an "environmental protection and safety equipment" exhibition area, where advanced workshop dust removal, explosion protection, noise reduction  wastewater treatment systems, etc. as well as one-stop solutions for environmental protection and safety will be displayed and provided, effectively guiding foundry enterprises to upgrade environmental protection and safety protection, and assisting small and medium-sized enterprises to deal with their bottleneck problems. During the exhibition period, a series of seminars will be held on environmental protection issues. Relevant government leaders and industry experts will explain environmental protection/security policies in detail, clarify the latest standards, and let entrepreneurs look at the overall situation and easily respond to environmental protection/security checks.
Moreover, the eco-foundry exhibition area and the intelligent manufacturing area also bring together the most advanced light, fine and excellent high-end castings, where efficient, energy-saving and intelligent melting, molding, core making, pouring, cleaning, processing equipment and all kinds of testing instruments are demonstrated; advanced domestic precision equipment and a series of new green environmental raw materials will be exhibited; efficient and intelligent equipment at home and abroad perfectly show the upstream and downstream industrial chain of the foundry industry; additionally, intelligent die-casting island, semi-solid die-casting machine, high-efficient molding line, high-efficient and energy-saving melting equipment, on-line testing equipment, sand recycling equipment will be highlighted at the exhibition, supporting the transformation and upgrade of the Chinese foundry industry and promoting the industry to realize sustainable development.

2. Bringing together advanced technology to help industry’s transform and upgrade

Intelligent foundry is the result of deep integration of advanced foundry technology and new generation information technology. 3D printing, simulation technology, robot and cloud service platform are the necessary conditions for intelligent foundry. Cutting-edge technologies such as remote design, remote control, virtual production, 3D printing, intelligent robots, online monitoring and precision machining will be displayed and help participants understand and connect with intelligent foundry.

3. Leading the die-casting industry

With the increasing demand for lightweight and energy-saving products by downstream users, the Chinese die-casting market has expanded significantly. The China Foundry Association, Hong Kong Foundry Association and more than 100 industry organizations will jointly create a die-casting industry exhibition every two years in Shanghai. The session in 2019 will be upgraded again and achieves historic breakthroughs. As this is a grand festival for die-casting industry insiders, exhibitors and trade visitors are all looking forward to participate. During the exhibition, all kinds of high-end die-casting parts, die-casting machines and new technologies will be displayed. The exhibits will cover the upstream and downstream of the die-casting industry chain. Famous die-casting enterprises will bring the latest intelligent products and technologies to the show. With the theme of "lightweight, stronger, more environmental friendly", the "green channel" will be opened for automobile lightweight, helping the die-casting industry to move towards environmental protection.

4. Concurrent activities to create unlimited business opportunities

A series of exciting activities will enrich the exhibition connotation: the 15th China Foundry Association Annual Meeting, the "Belt and Road" Cooperation and Development Forum on International Foundry Capacity, "Top 50 China Die-casting Enterprises, Top 20 Die-casting Mould Enterprise Awarding Ceremony", Die-casting Sourcing Conference, and on-site industry experts consultation. New product and technology release, seminars and lectures, young workers meetings and other activities, conveying policy guidance to the industry; talent recruitment, results transference and business matching provide unlimited opportunities, establish industry models, and build a high-end business circle in the foundry industry, leading China's foundry industry to new heights!

5. Segmentation and precise matching

Continuing with the scale of previous exhibitions, the "dual exhibitions" has added three outdoor exhibition halls, with a total exhibition area of nearly 100,000 square meters. The exhibition halls are segmented more professionally into their respective parts: internationals, casting, foundry materials, equipment, die-casting parts, die-casting equipment, and intelligent manufacturing halls, etc. There are different areas in one hall, such as precision casting, and mold, robot and 3D printing areas. The exhibition highlights the industry hotspots and provides accurate and efficient services for trade visitors, which will help them find target exhibitors quickly, improve the efficiency of visiting exhibitions, and ultimately achieve accurate matching between exhibitors and professional buyers.
See you in March 2019, Shanghai.
