Intelligent production lines and systems, industrial robots, high performance materials, composite materials, the latest and most complete recycling solutions as well as other plastics and rubber technology breakthroughs will be showcased under one roof.

Apart from more show attractions, there will also be a series of activities to celebrate the 30th edition of CHINAPLAS. These programs will be announced soon.

Online space application is now available. Interested parties are advised to submit immediate space reservation at the official website as space is running out fast, noted the CHINAPLAS organizer, Adsale Exhibition Services Ltd.

Looking back, when CHINAPLAS was held for the first time in Beijing in 1983, the exhibition area was only 2,000sqm, and 90% of the exhibitors were from overseas. At that time, the production technology in China was still at a very low level, and visitors mainly came to learn the advanced technologies from overseas countries.

Today, China has become a big manufacturing country with strong production ability, and is exporting the most plastics and rubber machineries in recent years.

CHINAPLAS has been moving forward together with the China market. Its international nature attracts overseas visitors from more than 150 countries and regions, which accounts for nearly 30% of the show’s visitors.

Just like other manufacturing sectors in China, the plastics and rubber industries are facing transformation to meet the new era of intelligent production.

While the world’s leading manufacturing countries have launched national strategic plans to meet the challenges in the new era and to strengthen their industrial competitiveness, such as Industry 4.0 of Germany, Advanced Manufacturing Partnership of the US, and New Robot Strategy of Japan, China has come out with its Made in China 2025 strategic plan.

It is not hard to find that intelligent manufacturing plays a vital part in all of these national plans in adapting to new market environment.

CHINAPLAS as a leading plastics and rubber trade fair will focus on green and innovative technologies, as well as intelligent manufacturing solutions in response to the development of the industry.
