Focusing on the theme of "Intelligent Manufacturing, High-tech Materials, Green Solutions", the organizer of CHINAPLAS, Adsale Exhibition Services Ltd., will administrate three big concurrent events during the exhibition: the 2nd "Industry 4.0 Conference", "Design x Innovation", and the "3rd Medical Plastics Conference".
Visitors can expect to grasp the cutting-edge technologies and inspiring case studies in these events, allowing them to hop on the bandwagon and understand market dynamics from multiple dimensions, explore more valuable opportunities for collaborations and expand networks to facilitate development.
3 Concurrent Events
|2nd Industry 4.0 Conference
Industry 4.0 is the Prime Focus
China has quickly become the world's second largest national economy, and labour costs have risen sharply. It is no longer a low-wage cost country - all kinds of cost pressures force businesses to opt for more automation equipment and advanced technology in the production processes.
According to Mr. Stanley Chu, Chairman, Adsale Exhibition Services Ltd., China is still a developing country, and has not yet fulfilled the necessary conditions for industrial 4.0.
"Only a few companies are making use of networking production technologies. Industry 4.0 is still a vision for many Chinese companies, but an attainable one, and attainable in the foreseeable future, if it is desired that something be done to cope with cost pressures." It is to this end that CHINAPLAS 2017 gives Industry 4.0 top priority.
2nd Industry 4.0 Conference
The 2nd Industry 4.0 Conference, presented with the support from VDMA, the German Engineering Federation, will be held in the afternoon of May 16, in the morning of May 17 and in the afternoon of May 18, 2017, in Conference Room 1, Level C, Zone B, China Import & Export Fair Complex, Pazhou.
- As a "signature dish" dedicated to visitors, the conference will provide practical and operational solutions for enterprises targeting urgent manufacturing upgrade.
- Industry 4.0 will eventually move towards the direction of customized, small batch production, which are also the characteristics of additive manufacturing (3D printing) technology which meet the demands for the development of more personalized products.
- This is the long-term goal of Industry 4.0.
Furthermore, the Smart Manufacturing Technology Zone, a showcase of cutting-edge automation technologies, will provide a boost to the movement from "Made in China" to "Smartly Made in China."
"Design x Innovation" Enlightens the Upstream and Downstream Sectors
Enterprise transformation and upgrading calls for industrial design innovation.
|Design x Innovation
Since its inception, "Design x Innovation" has attracted a lot of attention. As visitors' needs get more sophisticated, the event itself gets more vibrant - "Innovation Gallery", "Open Forum", "Meet the Designers" are the programs which introduce success stories of innovative industrial designs to visitors, who gain inspirations on application of new materials and at the same time discuss and exchange solutions face-to-face, further creating value.
"During its many years of development, plastics have been inspiring and providing an increasing number of possibilities of designs, including innovations in the upstream and downstream industries, which focus on plastics and injection, and have enriched our imagination, realizing creative ideas that once could only be dreamt but not tried."
"The ‘Design x Innovation' open forum is a relatively new format, allowing exchanges between creative designers and technical personnel, through which different sectors manage to understand each other's needs and demands, and leads to better co-operation. I learned a lot from them."
The 3rd Medical Plastics Conference Helps Hunters Uncover Treasures from This Sunrise Industry
|Medical Plastics Conference
The growing demand for medical devices by the huge population in recent years, the rise of emerging markets and the ageing society is triggering a renewed growth of the medical device market.
China's healthcare industry is at a stage of abundant potentials, but is at the same time having a low level of technology, prompting manufacturers to find adaptive solutions to existing production lines and cost pressures. New and better materials are the key to the future development of medical enterprises.
The concurrent event Medical Plastics Conference has been held successfully in the past two years, receiving very positive feedbacks from the industry.
Shanghai Medical Device Industry Association praised:
"At the Medical Plastics Conference, the technical experts shared the state-of-the-art technology of the industry and analyzed development direction of medical applications and solutions. At the same time, processing technology related to the production of precision medical polymer was introduced, offering enterprises knowledge of new materials and direction of development."
The 3rd Medical Plastics Conference, to be held in the afternoon of May 17 and in the morning of May 18, 2017 in Conference Room 1, Level C, Zone B, will bring together the upstream and downstream sectors of the industry to discuss the latest applications of medical plastics and cutting-edge production technology.
The conference will also be concurrent with a showcase gallery which focuses on exhibitors' medical products of all types in order to help visitors quickly spot their targets among the massive amount exhibits.
CHINAPLAS 2017 will be held at the China Import & Export Fair Complex, Pazhou, Guangzhou, PR China on May 16-19, 2017.
