Theme for CCMT2018 Established

Focus on——Digitalization, Interconnection, Intelligent Manufacturing

A new round of industrial revolution guided by informationinterconnection in global range has been going deeper and deeper with eachpassing day; the manufacturing industry is experiencing the evolution fromautomation and digitalization to synergy and intelligence. It brings anall-around deep change to the global machine tool & tool industry. Thedevelopment trend and emphasis of the integration development strategy ofindustrialization and informationization represented by the Industrial Internet advocated by the US,Industrial 4.0 put forward by Germanyand Made in China 2025 are allpointing to intelligent manufacturing. In this context, China CNC Machine ToolFair 2018 (CCMT2018) will be held in Shanghai during April 9-13, 2018. Theorganizer, China Machine Tool & Tool Builders’ Association (CMTBA),identifies the theme of CCMT2018 as “Focuson——Digitalization, Interconnection, Intelligent Manufacturing” via tracking and summarizing domestic and foreign markets andindustrial development trend. This theme responds to the latest changes in theconsumer market of machine tool & tool at home and abroad, condensing theconcern and thought for the future development direction of the said industry.


Focus on Digitalization——Foundation ofthe Intelligent Manufacturing

Digitalization is the foundation of the future industry andinterconnection manufacturing. Facing the arrival of digital manufacturing era,the global machine tool & tool industry comply with the trend of thedevelopment of times to bring out a series of new technologies and products. Thesetechnologies and products have distinct characteristics of digital productionequipment, possessing complete advanced network solutions, powerfulcommunication function, flexible & compatible openness and rich applicationsoftware, realizing the transition of CNC system from "machine toolcontroller" to "digital manufacturing management controller",and the transition of CNC machine tool from "manufacturing machine"to "digital unit". At the same time, some famous enterprises usingtheir unique technical advantage and experience long-time-accumulated innumerical control field have launched the digital factory intelligent solutionsto assist clients to jointly push the construction and development of digitalfactory from hard & soft 2 aspects. Under such background, China has putforward the strategic plan of "Madein China 2025" in 2015, highlighting the promotion of digitalmanufacturing, intelligent manufacturing and the transformation & upgradefrom digital manufacture to intelligent manufacture. It is an inevitable trendin the development of manufacturing. CCMT2018 as an observation and displaywindow showcasing the huge machine tool market of China and the internationaladvanced technology and equipment will bring in various leading-edgeinformation and experience of digital manufacturing in the world to fullydisplay the machine tool & tool industry’s advanced technicalcharacteristics in digital manufacturing.


Focus on Interconnection(network) ——Path of Intelligent Manufacturing

Realizing collaborative manufacturing and meeting the masscustomization require the connectivity of various resources. Based on digitalization,to connect the path of information interaction between the equipment, tostrengthen the application of historical data and to introduce intelligentalgorithm are the main way and path for the transformation of the numericalcontrol equipment to the intelligent equipment. Therefore, one of the importantprerequisites for realizing the intelligent manufacturing is the connectivityof equipment and the interconnectivity technology of CNC machine tools has beenhighly concerned in the world for a long time. Back in 2006, the Americaninstitute of mechanical manufacturing technology (AMT) proposed the MT-Connectprotocol for interconnectivity of machine tool equipment. In the same year, theOPC foundation, a standard international organization, re-developed OPCUA'sindustrial Control and interconnection protocol on the basis of the OLE ProcessControl. In 2013, the OPC foundation and AMT negotiated the compatibility forthe two interconnected protocols. In 2016, a cooperation agreement between theGerman industry 4.0 platforms and the industrial Internet alliance of theUnited States was signed; clarifying the way and means of integrating the two,and the main integration point was in the standard system.

Beneficial exploration in internet technology on domestic numericalcontrol machine tool also has carried out in recent years, but the researchwork did not form unified national standards, restricting the transformationand upgrade of domestic numerical control industry towards intelligent. ChinaMachine Tool & Tool Builders’ Association attaches great importance to theresearch and application of internet communication protocol standard for CNCmachine tool. The "CNC Machine Tool Interconnect Communication Protocol StandardAlliance", was founded in 2016, aiming to promote the further developmentof Internet technique for CNC machine tool industry in China. CCMT2018 willfocus on the latest performance of the interconnection trend in the machinetool & tool industry to explore the assistance to integrate and promote internettechnology in manufacturing industry.


Focus on Intelligent Manufacturing——ManufacturingDevelopment Direction

With the support and push by present digitalization and informationinterconnection technique, the realization of intelligent manufacturingprospect will be increasingly clear, namely, to build digital assets on thebasis of high performance products, to realize information interconnection, andto lift the level of intelligence in manufacturing. Machine tool intelligencetechnology could process and handle the factors of environment, machiningobject, machining requirements, machining process, equipment per se and randomchanges via sensor and multi-information fusion technique to obtain the neverreached height in quality, efficiency, effectiveness, safety, etc. bytraditional control technique. Many achievements in machine tool intelligencetechnology in recent years and development trend will be fully displayed inCCMT2018. Intelligent technology is the commanding height of modern automaticcontrol technology, which constitutes a new important factor for productcompetitiveness and reflects the new requirements and new changes of the futuremarket. CCMT2018 will be enough to make us deeply feel the endless charm ofintelligent technology and the times of intelligence are quickly coming to us.

Mr. Mao Yufeng, President of CMTBA said, "The field of currentmachine tool & tool should be on the basis of high quality products to facethose major directions of digitalization (real and virtual), automation,internet of things & internet and industrial big data to conduct researchwith the ultimate goal to realize digitalization and intelligent manufacturing.Focusing on market changes and industrial development is an important task ofChina Machine Tool & Tool Builders’ Association, which is also its policyto hold the 2 brand exhibitions of CIMT and CCMT. Focusing on digitalization,focusing on the Internet and focusing on intelligent manufacturing are not onlythe latest trends reflecting China's market demand, but also representing thedevelopment direction of global international machine tool & tool industry.Taking that as CCMT2018’s theme will be helpful to the exhibition to focus onmarket changes and industrial development, providing a rare opportunity toeveryone for display and exchange.”
