3rd Industry 4.0 Conference—a taste of world-class excellence

Industry 4.0 solutions facilitate business transformation. Chinaplas started organising a conference on this topic two years ago and received enthusiastic feedback. With continuing, full support from VDMA, the German Engineering Federation, the 3rd Industry 4.0 Conference will take place at Chinaplas 2018.

Drawing on an accumulation of Industry 4.0 experience among global enterprises, the topics of this conference will be far-reaching and practical. Participants can expect plenty of industry 4.0 factory case studies and in-depth application discussions.

Three sessions—covering automotive, electrical and electronics, and packaging—will be organised to suit end-users’ needs.

Participants will be inspired by the best-proven German practices to help them stride into the Industry 4.0 era. At present, Arburg, EREMA, KUKA, Kraussmaffei, RWTH Aachen University, Wittmann Battenfeld, and other well-known enterprises have confirmed their presence as guest speakers.

"Tech Talk" to cover advanced technologies

For the plastics and rubber industries, Chinaplas is a sort of “annual tournament” where companies and organisations compete for visitors’ attention. The organiser 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.

This year, “Tech Talk” will shed light on a wide range of topics, including:

  • “Smart Manufacturing,” which will offer insights into automation/robotics, micro-injection molding, digitalisation/informatisation, in-mold labeling, Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), and 3D printing.
  • “Innovative Materials," which will look at lightweighting, thin-wall molding, micro-foaming, multi-functionality, spray-free, anti-UV, anti-bacterial, and flame-retardant materials, among others.
  • “Green Solutions,” which will focus on sustainability and topics such as biodegradable materials, low VOCs, energy saving, and recycling.

CMF Inspiration for Design x Innovation

Product design is increasingly grabbing people’s attention. Colour, Material, and Finish (CMF) is vital for product design, and directly influences users’ product experience. To create a delightful user experience, brand owners and processors must carefully choose the appropriate CMF technology for their products. Good CMF design reinforces a positive product image and is essential to building a successful brand.

Chinaplas is responding to market needs by launching "CMF Inspiration for Design x Innovation.” The event consists of two parts—the “CMF Inspiration Wall,” which will display a rich variety of plastic resources for CMF design. Global leading plastics technology suppliers and CMF masters will talk about product innovations and the latest market trends.

More than 80 technical seminars

In addition to the events highlighted above, more than 80 technical seminars will take place during Chinaplas 2018. These include "Innovative Automotive Seat Materials Forum 2018," "Automotive Lightweight Materials & Application Technology Seminar," "Application of Plastics in Transportation Protection Packaging Technology Summit," "E&E Manufacturing New Materials Technology Forum & Matchmaking Conference,” and many more.

Chinaplas 2018 will be held on April 24-27, 2018. For walk-in visitors, RMB50 and RMB80 will be charged for a one-day pass and a four-day pass, respectively. Visitors can enjoy admission discount through online pre-registration from now till April 18, 2018, at an early-bird rate of RMB50 for a four-day pass.
