Thanks to considerable support from 3D printing exhibitors, the 3D Printing Asia Zone will return as a key show highlight at Asiamold 2019. With an increase of over 20% in the exhibit area compared to the same period last year, the zone is projected to exceed the previous edition in terms of scale and gather the world’s top brands to offer a spectrum of the latest technologies and solutions from international and domestic suppliers.
Asiamold – Guangzhou International Mould & Die Exhibition will open its doors from 10 – 12 March 2019 at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou, China. Held together with SPS – Industrial Automation Fair Guangzhou (SIAF), the fairs are expected to host over 850 exhibitors utilising more than 60,000 sqm of exhibition space. Professional visitors from manufacturing markets around the world will source the latest and most in-demand mould making, die casting, metalworking, 3D printing, laser and automation technologies. The synergistic effect of the two shows will help industry players unlock greater business opportunities and stimulate greater collaboration.
Not only limited to the mould formation at an early stage, the industry has now invented equipment that combines 3D printing technologies and computer numerical control (CNC) which makes low rate initial production possible. To keep pace with development trends in the moulding industry, the 3D Printing Asia Zone will once again be a key highlight of the fair and will display state-of-the-art industry technologies and solutions from around the world. A number of first-time participants have already confirmed their presence for the 2019 edition, they include:
