Experts from all over the world will gather in Shanghai this April to assess market trends and highlight innovative technologies.
3rd Industry 4.0 Conference
Industry 4.0 solutions facilitate business transformation. CHINAPLAS started organizing a conference on this topic two years ago and received enthusiastic feedback. With continuing, full support from VDMA, the German Engineering Federation, the “3rdIndustry 4.0 Conference” will take place at CHINAPLAS 2018. Participants can expect plenty of industry 4.0 factory case studies and in-depth application discussions. Participants will be inspired by the best proven German practices, to help them stride into Industry 4.0 era. At present, Arburg, EREMA, KUKA, KraussMaffei, Wittmann Battenfeld and other well-known enterprises have confirmed their presence as guest speakers.
The organizer introduced “Tech Talk” last year to enrich the technology content of CHINAPLAS, creating a platform for international exhibitors to launch their state-of-the-art products. “Tech Talk” will shed light on a wide range of topics, including:
- Smart Manufacturing: automation/robotics, micro-injection molding, digitalization and 3D printing etc.
- Innovative Materials: lightweighting, micro-foaming, multi-functionality, anti-UV, anti-bacterial materials, etc.
- Green Solutions: biodegradable materials, low VOCs, energy saving, and recycling etc.
Medical Plastics Connect
“Medical Plastics Connect” is an array of activities to comprehensively present cutting-edge and practical medical plastics solutions to visitors, through open forums, guidebook, pop-up kiosk and guided tour. International experts will be invited to share their valuable knowledge on hot topics such as sterilization-resistant materials, composite materials for pharmaceutical packaging, medical TPU and PEEK resins, precision tubing solutions etc.
CMF Inspiration for Design x Innovation
Product design is increasingly grabbing people’s attention. Color, Material and Finish (CMF) is vital for product design, and directly influences users’ product experiences. Good CMF design reinforces a positive product image and is essential in building a successful brand.
“CMF Inspiration for Design x Innovation” consists of a “CMF Inspiration Wall” and “CMF Design Forum”. Global leading plastics technology suppliers and CMF masters will talk about product innovations and the latest market trends.
