CHINA DIECASTING 2018 and CHINA NONFERROUS 2018 offer a high-end platform for leading die casting and special casting enterprises to display latest technologies, products and process, all the participants can be benefit from on-site event besides showcasing:
- Innovation Day
Focusing on topics of “Die Casting Industry Digital Plant” and “Die Casting Innovation Solution”, “Innovation Day”, the 2-day technical seminar, warmed up by online voting aroused 100,000+ attentions before the event. It shared the latest technologies in relevant topics. Speakers on behalf of their companies has won good opportunities of exposure through the event.
- Best Die Casting Competition & Display
The brand event “Best Die Casting Competition & Display” of CHINA DIECASTING has been upgraded on last year’s basis. The competition has been divided, according the materials of the die casting parts, into 3 separate categories: Aluminum, Magnesium and Zinc, which has attracted 134 runners for the GOLD awards and EXCELLENCE awards. There are 90 aluminum die castings, 12 magnesium die castings and 32 zinc die castings among them.
- Auto-Tech Day
Follows the leading trend of “lightweight, new-energy, and intelligence” in the global automotive industry, “Auto-Tech Day” discussed revolutionary challenges and opportunities, in form of development forum and displaying.
The forum, “2018 Automotive Lightweight Development Forum” has invited 7 experts from GF Casting Solutions, GM, DF Motor, DGS, BYD, AluMag Automotive, N-CE Neuwirth Consulting & Engineering, discussed the latest progress and solution of lightweight automotive parts, as well as the opportunities.
In Japan Die Casting Parts Display area, 6 leading Japanese die casting companies also brought die casting parts representing their latest forming & casting technologies this year.
- Mould Manufacturing Day 2018
Mould Manufacturing Day 2018 contains 2 parts: “The Summit Mould Manufacturing” and “International Match-making for Moulds & Die Casting Parts”. Chinese die casting manufacturers are proposing higher requirement towards the dies and moulds, since they are also facing strict procurement standards from global buyers.
“The Summit Mould Manufacturing Forum 2018” invited 7 experts, engineers and technicians from associations and relevant downstream and upstream industries shared current market trend and government policies, and also explored innovative development solutions. The match-making provides high-efficient opportunities for 17 buyers vs. 52 suppliers to negotiate face to face.
- Technologies in nonferrous alloys and applications
Besides the workmanship, sometimes materials are also critical to improve the manufacturing. By the time 3 seminar themes announced, there are already quite a number of audience expecting the sharing from the forum.
“Seminar on Casting Technology of Advanced Nonferrous Alloys” invited 12 speakers from top colleges and universities, research institutes, and leading enterprises in the field of the national defense and related industries, presented valuable reports focused on academic exchanges of new nonferrous material and technology development.
“Magnesium Alloys Casting Technologies Session” focused on discussion of the application status and future prospects of magnesium alloy in aerospace, automobile, 3C and other fields. 8 speakers from leading association, manufacturers and universities had joined this session.
“Semi-Solid Metal Casting Technologies Development Seminar and Products Display” had 4 industry experts and representatives of enterprises to discuss the sustainable development of this process by making technical presentations and displaying high quality casting products.
- Other Programs
6 well-known universities and enterprises from China presented 8 scientific and technological achievements on “The 5th China Foundry Science and Technology Achievements Trade Fair”, setting up a bridge between academic institutes and companies.
