The China Import and Export Fair Complex, Pazhou, Guangzhou was crowded and hot as the CHINAPLAS 2017 kicked off yesterday! The opening day saw tens of thousands of visitors flocked to the show with abundant new cutting-edge products and technology innovations in the plastics and rubber industries.

With the "Smart Manufacturing Technology Zone", “Design x Innovation” and 2nd Industry 4.0 Conference as show highlights, visitors got incredible insights from CHINAPLAS 2017.

The 2nd Industry 4.0 Conference and Tech Talk continue today. Meanwhile, don’t miss the 3rd Medical Plastics Conference which is coming up today to shed lights on the latest development of medical plastics technologies.

"Smart Manufacturing Technology Zone" starring for the show

Plastics and rubber industries are striving to optimize productivity and improve efficiency through smart manufacturing. The "Smart Manufacturing Technology Zone" is thus being put under the spotlight at CHINAPLAS 2017.

The zone is upgraded from the "Automation Technology Zone" in the show's past two editions, with bigger scale and more magnificent exhibitor line-up. A full range of state-of-the-art technologies and products shine in the zone, attracting and retaining the eyeballs of visitors.

Apart from exhibits like the robotic arms, automated systems, controllers, actuators and sensors, visitors have the chance to witness a smart production line and smart factory solutions from leading suppliers, including Bosch Rexroth, Siemens and Demark.

Positive feedback for first session of 2nd Industry 4.0 Conference

Besides the "Smart Manufacturing Technology Zone", CHINAPLAS 2017 also presents the 2nd Industry 4.0 Conference with the support from VDMA, the German Engineering Federation. The conference was held in the afternoon yesterday, and continues today.

Yesterday’s session, focused on best practices for facilitating smart manufacturing in the automotive sector, proved to be very fruitful. KraussMaffei presented the topic of “Automotive 4.0 – how to turn injection molding machine data into profit industry”, and Engel also talked about the smart manufacturing technology for automotive sector.

The session of today will be dedicated primarily to the electrical and electronics sector. Arburg, Wittmann Battenfeld and Haier are expected to share their solutions for this key sector.

Green innovations enable new circular economy

The year 2016 was marked by global efforts to move toward a more sustainable society. Manufacturing industry has no other viable strategic option than to adopt green solutions as it moves forward. In view of this, CHINAPLAS 2017 brings together and highlights a series of innovative green solutions.

The first globally launched solvent-free rotogravure printing machine, developed by Zhongshan Sotech Printing Machinery, makes its debut at CHINAPLAS 2017. It finds use in the manufacturing of flexible packaging, and in the packaging of food and beverage products, daily chemical products and medical supplies.

This printing machine enables manufacturers to eliminate VOCs. According to the manufacturer, the machine uses cold light to solidify colored inks without the need for solvents and VOCs.

Obviously, the "Recycling Technology Zone" is one of the highlights in line with the scope of new circular economy. Visitors can find an abundant selection of best recycling practices in the zone.

Among many exhibitors, Zhangjiagang Xinbei Machinery shows a plastic waste shredder with multiple uses, as it can be used to help recycle pipes, lumps and rubber with a magnetic separating system. With further improvement, the equipment can also be applied to the shredding and recycling of soft materials such as thin films, bags and filaments.

Besides, the “Plastic Beverage Bottles Recycle & Reward Activity” received positive feedback yesterday. Many visitors joint by inserting plastic beverage bottles to the Reverse Vending Machines set up at the fairgrounds, and redeemed souvenirs at the counter located at the "Recycling Technology Zone".
