Interest among the mould and die community, as well as the 3D printing industry, remains strong for the 9th edition of Asiamold – Guangzhou International Mould & Die Exhibition. Scheduled to take place from 15 – 17 September 2015 at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou, the fair aims to showcase the most comprehensive collection of supply chain and mould-making solutions as well as technologies for manufacturing-based industries.
Over 400 exhibitors are expected to utilise 20,000 sqm of exhibition space across two halls. With attendees ranging from manufacturers and product suppliers to distributors as well as users, more than 20,000 visitors are anticipated during the three-day show.
Regarded as the annual event for Asia’s manufacturing-based industries by professionals, the fair has attracted numerous industry-leading suppliers who are preparing to showcase their latest innovations. One of the key highlights of the 2015 show is 3D Printing Asia Zone. Continuing its success in the previous edition, the zone has gathered some of the region’s most prominent suppliers in rapid prototyping, software development, 3D laser engraving and others.

For the 9th edition, we will showcase our new VTOP series 3D scanner and GRAM series 3D printing machines. By introducing higher quality products, we hope to draw equally professional buyers to our booth.”
Runice Power Transmission (Suzhou) Co Ltd, a first-time exhibitor, is one of the sector’s most reputable 3D printing enterprises in China. Mr Wu Jin, Sales Manager for the company, noted: “Asiamold is one of the most well-known exhibitions within the 3D printing industry in South China and our company will make its first appearance at the 2015 edition. Through the fair, we hope to expand Runice’s international footprint in the years to come.”

Some of the programme highlights include onsite business matching services for domestic and overseas buyers, overseas delegations and others.
