News Release at CCMT2018 Press Conference



Dear Guests, Journalist, Ladies and Gentlemen:

Good morning!

China CNC Machine Tool Fair 2018 (CCMT2018),hosted by China Machine Tool & Tool Builders Association (CMTBA), and jointly held by Shanghai International Exhibition Co.,Ltd.(SIEC),will take place on April 9-13,2018 in Shanghai New International Expo Center. CCMT2018, as the largest and most well-known machine tool exhibition in China,will once again put up a dazzling grand stage to meet domestic and overseas guests from the machine tool industry and many user industries.


First of all, on behalf of CMTBA-the organizer andSIEC-the co-organizer,please allow me to extend the warm welcome and heartfelt thanks to our guestsand friends from the press circle at todays CCMT2018 press conference.


Since its founding in 2000,nine sessions of CCMT have been successfully held in Shanghai. As the sisterexhibition of China International Machine Tool Show (CIMT), along with the progress and development ofthe machine tool industry and the continuous upgrade of the demand ofexhibitors and visitors,CCMT has been improving its professionalism, informatization and service. With theattraction of the Chinese market and good organization of the exhibition,CCMT has attracted an increasing figure of international exhibitors session bysession.


The theme of CCMT2018 is "Focus on --Digitalization•Interconnection•Intelligent Manufacturing". The themereflects the current characteristics of the machine tool industry and itsmarket in an accurate and vivid way. It responds to the latest changes in the machinetool consumption market at home and abroad, and reflects the thinking of the domesticand overseas machine tool industry on the future development direction. Withthis theme,CCMT2018 will give you the industry's latest digital manufacturing,information interconnection solutions, and intelligent manufacturing systems.


At present, with the development of the new industrialrevolution led by information interconnection worldwide, manufacturing industry is experiencing theevolution from automation and digitalized to collaborative and intelligent, andis bringing profound changes to the global machine tool industry. In thetypical development strategies of integration of industrialization andinformatization,such as the Industrial Internet advocated by the United States,Industrial 4.0 proposed by Germany, and Made in China 2025. With thedevelopment trends and key points always about intelligent manufacturing. Inthe active exploration and practice in the worlds machine tool industry, thepath to the realization of intelligent manufacturing is becoming increasinglyclear,namely, theconstruction of digital assets on the basis of high performance products so asto achieve information interconnection & interworking and enhance theintelligence in manufacturing.


Today, the machine tool industry is focusing onthe key directions of digitalization (real and virtual), automation, IoT & interconnection, bigdata,etc.. The ultimate goal is to achieve intelligent manufacturing. Focusing ondigitalization, interconnectionand intelligent manufacturing are not only the latest trend of China's marketdemand, butalso the development direction of the international machine tool industry.CCMT2018 will focus on the latest applications in this area and provide a rareopportunity for you to communicate with the experts.


In today's news conference, wewill introduce the following topics: exhibitors and exhibits,international cooperation and supporting activities during the exhibition, andexhibition service.


1.   Introduction toExhibitors, Exhibition and Exhibits

Up to now, a total of 1200 manufacturers from 23countries and regions,such as China,Germany, theUnited States,Japan,Italy,Switzerland, theUnited Kingdoms,Korea, andTaiwan,have registered for CCMT2018,including more than 500 overseas exhibitors accounting for 40% of the totalexhibition area. With the area,nearly 5% larger than the last CCMT, the proportion of international exhibitorsarea again maintained the growth trend. Machine tool associations and tradepromotion agencies of 10 countries and regions, such as the United States,Germany,Switzerland,Italy,Korea,Spain,Japan,Czech,France and Taiwan,will organize official pavilions. It is worth mention this is the first Frenchnational delegation to CCMT.


CCMT2018 will use 10 indoor halls of N1-N5and W1-W5 in Shanghai New International Expo Center, with a total area of 120,000square meters. The overseas halls are N1, N4 and W3, whereas domestic ones are N2, W1, W2, W4, andW5. N3 and N5 are mixed halls of domestic and overseas exhibitors.


In CCMT2018, we will arrange more product pavilions.All domestic exhibition halls are classified accordingly. Moreover, wemix domestic and overseas exhibits, such as industrial robots & automationequipment,forming & laser processing machine, tool & fixture, etc., into their respective product pavilion forthe convenience of trade visitors and buyers.


A great many exhibits will be displayed,including new and refined products, covering metal cutting machine tools,metal forming machine tools,special purpose machine tools,flexible manufacturing cell,automatic production line,industrial robot,control system & automation components, functional components,measuring,cutting tool & fixture,testing instruments,accessories & materials, andother products.


Based on the exhibits information submittedby the exhibitors, wehave summed up four highlights of the exhibits.


Highlight one: Digitalization, intercommunication and interworking --propel the transformation of manufacturing mode

Digitized manufacturing is the inevitablechoice for the future global manufacturing industry. The transformation ofmanufacturing mode urgently needs the support of new solutions,technologies and products. CNC machine tools will also make use of this in thenew industrial revolution, andcontinue to be an important factor leading the future manufacturing. In thisexhibition, wecan continue our visit and learning of the professional and famous digitizedmanufacturing solutions,such as Siemens PLM Software,MAZAKs SPS,OKUMA's Okuma Smart Factory,MITSUBISHI ELECTRIC 's "e-F@ctory" FA integration solutions,GF's WSM workshop management solutions. At the same time, wecan also see a number of new digital solutions, especially the debut of domestic programs,showing the initial achievements and strong development momentum under thestrategy of "made in China 2025".


Highlight two: integration -- function, efficiency

With the integration of technology,process,machine tool structure,function and working mode according to a certain goal, manufacturers can yield high performanceand high efficiency products. This is not only a trend of technologicalinnovation, butalso an inevitable demand in market development. With the development oftechnology and market, theconnotation of integration has been extended and deepened. In CCMT2018, Thenumerous compound machine tools and machining cell, production line, multi-spindle machine tools,automatic line machine and other exhibits from many angles will manifest thelatest achievements of the ideas of integration, and bring more new choices for ourcustomers.


Highlight three: Intelligent technology --Human Computer Interaction, provide excellent working support

Modern computer and information technologyhave promoted the rapid development of intelligent technology. Intelligenttechnology has become a symbol of high-end products. CCMT2018 is a grandgathering of intelligent technology, multiple forms of intelligent technologybased software and functions have penetrated the process development,programming,simulation & examination,setting and operation,control and inspection,maintenance and various other elements, providing strong supports formanufacturing. These are the most attractive characteristics of modern machinetools.


Highlight four: Special-purpose equipment-- tailored with ingenuity

The machine tool is the most personalizedproduct. In CCMT2018, avariety of special-purpose equipment, tailored with ingenuity,have amazing characteristics such as Multiple models, wide range, technical expertise,close to the market etc.. The machine tool manufacturers have closer connectionwith the market and users in special-purpose machine tools. CCMT2018 provides avery rare opportunity for customers who need high efficiency and highperformance special equipment.
