Industry Vane--METAL CHINA and CIDC 2019

The world foundrymen will gather in Shanghai on March 13-16, 2019.

As the vane of the foundry industry, the 17th China International Foundry Expo (METAL CHINA 2019) together with the 13th China International Die Casting Industry Exhibition (CIDC) are going to be held in March and leading the industry development.

Entering 2019, the Chinese foundry industry will continue to face the great challenge of strict environmental protection and safety regulations. The industry is integrating, transforming, and gradually moving toward the middle and high end. The exhibition closely follows the development trend of the industry and faces the pain-points, becoming the window to get close to the Chinese foundry market, and also the best platform to promote the integration of Chinese and the world foundry industry. Below are highlights of this session.


1. Intelligent manufacturing and environmental protection

"Quality, efficiency, intelligence, green" are the eternal theme 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 set up an “environmental protection and safety equipment” exhibition area, where advanced workshop dust removal system, explosion protection system, noise reduction system, 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 the environmental protection/security policy and the latest standards in detail.

Moreover, the most advanced light, fine and excellent high-end castings, as well as efficient, energy-saving and intelligent melting, molding, core making, pouring, cleaning, processing equipments and all kinds of testing instruments will be displayed; 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; 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 highlight the exhibition, supporting the transformation and upgrade of 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. The 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 you understand and connect with intelligent foundry.


3. The die-casting industry keeps high growth

With the increasing demand for lightweight and energy-saving products by downstream users, Chinese die-casting market has expanded significantly. 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 a top-class event of the die-casting industry, exhibitors and trade visitors are all expecting 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. The 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, supporting the die-casting industry to move towards environmental protection. Especially, Top 50 Die Casting Enterprises and Top 20 Die and Mold Enterprises which are selected by experts from industry associations and institutions, will represent the highest level of Chinese die casting development.

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, “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 transfer and business matching provide unlimited opportunities, establish industry models, build a high-end business circle in the foundry industry, leading China's foundry industry to a new height!

5. Segmentation and precise matching

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