DMC Expo

DMC Expo (2)

Die & Mold China 2012 (DMC2012) will be held in Hall E1-E6 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre from May 31st to June 3rd. This year's exhibition will highlight the salient characteristics of new technologies, new processes and new structures, with high-end manufacturing and innovation as priorities for exhibitions and themes of presentations.

Fifteen hundred exhibitors from 15 countries and regions, including Germany, Switzerland, Japan and Korea, are slated to participate in the event and showcase their new products and technologies.

A group including over 30 domestic die and mold makers from Guangdong and Zhejiang provinces that form the elite of China's contribution to the sector will jointly demonstrate the unique elements that sets them apart.

Several other conferences, including an industry summit led by China Die and Mold Industry Association (CDMIA), a technology seminar organized by SWISSMEM (the Swiss association of mechanical and electrical engineering industries) in concert with several international organizations, as well as many market-focused events held by BOSCH, other world-leading firms, and several users associations, are scheduled to take place concurrently.

"Offshore Wind China 2012", which is being held at the same time in a nearby venue, will complement DMC2012 in terms of synergies all along the new energy sector's production chain.

The exhibition's crowning event will be the gathering of the industry's leading decision makers and influencers from both within China and abroad where they plan to discuss cutting edge technologies and the demand for large-scale and high-end equipment, driving the transformation and evolution of the sector.

June Brings Die & Mould China, to Shanghai

Written by

Die & Mould China 2011, jointly organized by the China Die & Mould Industry Association and Shanghai International Exhibition Co. Ltd., takes place June 2-5 at the New International Expo Centre in Shanghai. With the rapid development of the Chinese die and mould industry, this event, once biennial, now annual, has arguably become the most influential purchasing platform for dies and moulds, precision machines, and forming technology in Asia. The upcoming edition, with around 800 exhibitors, will occupy 40,000 m2 of floor space. Trade visitors numbering more than 100,000 are expected.

In 2010, China's die and mould industry revenues totaled $17 billion (EUR12.2 billion), increasing 14% from 2009.The value of exports in this area soared by more than 19% to $2.2 billion (EUR1.58 billion), and the value of imports increased nearly 5% to just over $2 billion (EUR1.44 billion). Thus, for the first time ever, China enjoyed a trade surplus in this sector in 2010.

Data for the Chinese machine tool industry are similar. Last year, sales in this sector increased by 41%. At the same time, China imported processing machines and tools worth in excess of $15 billion (EUR10.8 billion).

Chinese die and mould makers are expanding into growth areas such as medical technology and sustainable energy generation. Therefore, they are increasingly interested in acquiring technology for microprocessing, reverse engineering, rapid prototyping, simulation integration, CAD/CAM/CAE and information management.
