Mar 08, 2018

GUANGZHOU --( ASIA TODAY )-- SPS – Industrial Automation Fair Guangzhou and Asiamold – Guangzhou International Mould & Die Exhibition, held concurrently from 4 ‒ 6 March at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou, ended with another record attendance, despite a Sunday opening. The two fairs succeeded in hosting 896 exhibitors and welcoming 72,068 professional buyers, including 231 buyer delegations. The fairs reaffirmed their position as a critical trade platform for both the industrial automation and the mould, die casting and additive manufacturing markets in China.

Advanced industrial automated machines certainly caught the eye of fairgoers who watched attentively as exhibitors carried out product demonstrations. From vacuum suction lifting devices to a dizzying array of rapid robotic arms, the machines from Halls 2.1 to 5.1 were high tech and professional. A real buzz in the atmosphere was also felt in Hall 1.1 as a wide array of 3D printers from domestic Chinese brands as well as international powerhouses showcased the latest capabilities of this exciting developing technology.

Broad concurrent event programmes present unique insights into future developments within the industries

Concurrent event programmes were organised in addition to the exhibits. A total of 80 talks were delivered by some of the leading industry players and academics from China and around the world. Standout seminars this year included the Automobile Lightweight Product and Technology Summit which made its debut at Asiamold, while the Global Review on Industrial Digitised Transformation seminar was well attended by visitors to SPS – Industrial Automation Fair Guangzhou. The Japan Electrical Manufacturers’ Association presented a very interesting talk on manufacturing innovations with IoT that resonated well with attendees.
