Metal + Metallurgy China 2017 promotes industrial innovation

As the largest Asian exhibition in metal and metallurgical industry, Metal + Metallurgy China 2017 (a collective name for the 15th China International Foundry Expo, the 17th China International Metallurgical Industry Expo and the 15th China International Industrial Furnaces Exhibition) came to a successful close at Shanghai New International Expo Center. Following the last Beijing exhibition, Metal + Metallurgy China 2017 has again made great achievements. The four-day exhibition attracted 1,263 leading enterprises within a display area of 90,000 m2 and the total visits exceeded 110,359.

Excellent foundry equipment is the foundation for a stronger national foundry industry. During the “12th Five-Year Plan” period, China's foundry manufacturing industry has achieved breakthroughs in many aspects by independent innovation as the core driving force, laying a solid foundation for the independent construction of digital foundry. Keeping abreast of the trend, this year’s China International Foundry Expo displayed comprehensively the four magic keys of the digital foundry, including digital simulation technique, rapid prototyping, robots and big data. In addition, high-end foundry products of automobiles, internal combustion engines, construction machineries, machine tools, metallurgical mine, power and rail transportation could all be found on the site. Efficient and intelligent equipment as well as green foundry materials promoted the upgrading and transformation of the whole industry and helped tp replace the old growth drivers to new ones. A strong lineup of exhibitors made their presence with the top-notch products and technologies, altogether interpreting the efficient and intelligent development trend of the foundry industry. China International Metallurgical Industry Expo, the only metallurgical and metal’s hot-processing exhibition approved by UFI in China, showcased metallurgical equipment and products, refractory materials, scrap metal recycling, sheet metal processing, wires and steel structure this year, establishing the largest industrial expo only second to METEC in the globe.

Since Hannover Milano Fairs Shanghai Ltd. joined the organization in 2015, Metal + Metallurgy China has got substantial improvement in its internationalization by absorbing a large number of international elements. This year, the International Pavilion attracted an even stronger lineup of exhibitors launched a series of the latest products and technologies, created a fantastic atmosphere for trade and business. Besides, the International Pavilion also enriched its display content this year, adding three new display sectors including die-casting, industrial automation as well as fore and aluminium industry, promoting the transformation and upgrading of the domestic enterprises to achieve a quantitative leap.

With the increasing demand for industrial robots and automation applications as well as the need for robotic solutions in the foundry industry, this year’s International Pavilion especially highlighted robots and automation technology, gathering a lot of forerunners to bring an unprecedented industrial innovation. Hot products including handling robots, grinding robots, die-casting feeding robots, pick-up robots and special cleaning robots were all displayed.

Providing a highly efficient platform to promote industrial innovation, Metal + Metallurgy China 2017 is jointly organized by China Iron and Steel Association, China Foundry Association, Chinese Mechanical Engineering Society (CMES), Metallurgical Council of CCPIT, Industrial Furnace Institution of CMES and Hannover Milano Fairs Shanghai Ltd. The next edition will be held in Beijing in 2018.
