The “Fluid Technology Zone & Seminar”, which is well received by exhibitors and visitors, will return this year, inviting well-known universities and enterprises in the field of fluid transmission to present the latest scientific research results and analyze the development trends in the international industry. It is worth mentioning that FBC Shanghai 2019 Asia, will be held concurrently with PTC ASIA for the first time. FBC Shanghai 2019 Asia will bring together about 400 Japanese lean manufacturing enterprises. It will not only provide online and offline match-up opportunities before the exhibition, but also organize factory visits, thematic forums and individual match-up activities, to create an extensive and professional platform for the exchange of products, technology and talents between Chinese and Japanese manufacturing enterprises.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of CeMAT ASIA. Leaders of major industry associations have sent their blessings. He Liming, President of China Federation of Logistics & Purchasing (CFLP), said: “In the past two decades, CeMAT ASIA has seen the booming development of China's logistics industry. Back at the first exhibition in 2000, CFLP formed a close partnership with Hannover Milano Fairs. At the same time, we have constantly enlarged the exhibition size by working closely together and made the international influence of CeMAT ASIA increasingly strong, making important contributions to the development of China's and even the global logistics industry.” In his congratulatory message, Li Peigen, President of Chinese Mechanical Engineering Society (CMES), wrote: “CeMAT ASIA can not only extensively enhance the direct communications between logistics enterprises and customers, but also inspire innovation in the market competition. Exhibits can not only reduce costs and increase efficiency for customers, but also provide customers with better solutions that are more in line with the trend of the times by means of intellectualization and environmentally-friendly concepts.” As a bellwether of the logistics industry, CeMAT ASIA 2019 will continue to lead the trend of intelligent logistics development and contribute to the transformation and upgrading of the traditional logistics industry. The CeMAT ASIA 2019 brought together more than 800 big-name enterprises in system integration, robot, AGV, forklift and other industries, including SSI Schaefer, Swisslog, TGW, Honeywell, SFA, Fives, BMHRI, RIAMB, KSEC, VSTRONG, BlueSword, Zhongding Integration, Anji Logistics, Wayz, HoJin, Automotive Engineering Corporation, HUAZH, Goldpeak, Savoye, Intralox,ABB, FANUC, Siasun, Geek+, Quicktron, HIK, Malu Innovation, Iplus, Seer Robotics, Guozi Lingong Intelligent, Comwin, Jingyuan, Huiju Automation, I-Cow, AGV Robot, Hangcha, BYD, RUYI, TVH, Cascade China, Kaup-East, Changxing Tianneng, Yufeng Intelligent, Santroll, which give advice for the buyers and solve various pain points and difficulties in production scenarios. It is worth mentioning that Kion Group will debut at the largest exhibition booth in the history of CeMAT ASIA with its three major brands of Dematic, Linde, Baoli and will have a carnival-like interaction with the visitors. In addition to the traditional logistics related industries, major e-commerce brands also attended the event as partners in other industries.
