Aluminium China 2018 marks new industry chapter following positive performance indicators
Apr 02, 2018

SHANGHAI, CHINA --( ASIA TODAY )-- This year’s Aluminium China exhibition and conference in July will provide a platform for China’s rapidly changing and expanding aluminium industry and showcase new state-of-the-art processes and products. Since the launch of the ‘Made in China 2025’ strategy more than two years ago, China has made great strides towards becoming the world’s leading manufacturing hub. And it is against this backdrop that the Chinese aluminium industry is shifting its focus from speed to high- quality growth and gearing up for technological advances, driven by demand from global industries such as aerospace, automotive, building and construction, transportation and consumer durables. The success of this strategy is demonstrated by Chinese company Nanshan Aluminum that has started manufacturing high-end aluminum materials for Boeing and Airbus.

Aluminium China 2018 will focus on global innovation and put the spotlight on aerospace and automotive materials and new processing technologies, along with innovative, smart and green manufacturing trends, helping to open up a new chapter in the aluminium industry.

With overcapacity easing and strong environmental protection measures put in place in 2017, domestic and international aluminium prices have risen sharply, causing demand for new facilities and the need to recover capacity, which currently lies idle. In 2017, China’s electrolytic aluminium output was 36.5 million tons, representing an increase of 12.2%; while downstream processed output, including aluminium sheets, extrusion, foils, wires, powders and casts, was 38.2 million tons, a year-on-year increase of 8.5%. At the same time, aluminium consumption has continued to rise, thanks to new emerging markets.

According to Reed Exhibitions China, the organiser of Aluminium China, this year’s event will feature a larger exhibition area than in 2017 and the number of trade visitors is expected to surpass 20,000. International visitors will come mainly from Southeast Asia, with Thailand providing the largest contingent. Reed is working with the Thai government, industry associations and other bodies to invite industry spokespeople to join discussions on industrial policy, in-depth analysis of the aluminium processing and consumption market, as well as putting the spotlight on topics such as the impact of new tariffs imposed on aluminium imported to the US.

Aluminium China 2018 will play its part in boosting industry growth as the event continues to attract more and more industry leaders. Confirmed exhibitors include leading local giants such as CHALCO, Zhongwang, Weiqiao, Nanshan, Conglin, Nannan, Zhongfu, Nanping, Lufeng, Mingtai, Mingde, Fenglu, Yunhai, Yuhang, and Hesheng. International players like UACJ, Constellium, Danieli, Pyrotek, Tenova, Fronius, AP&T and Panasonic will also be there.

The event takes place in the Shanghai New International Expo Center (SNIEC) from the July 11 to 13, 2018. Collocated with Aluminium China this year will be Lightweight Asia 2018. This event will feature advanced lightweight auto materials for whole vehicles and automotive parts and combine a one-stop procurement platform for lightweight auto solutions with insights into advanced processing technologies.

Ecoclean: Superior cleaning efficiency through better task adaptation Purpose-designed water based cleaning systems
Mar 29, 2018

Filderstadt / Monschau, Germany. The application fields of part cleaning processes using aqueous media range from coarse through intermediate to fine and ultrafine cleaning. Before an investment in suitable cleaning equipment is made, key questions regarding cleaning quality, throughput, cycle times, process stability and cost efficiency must be answered.

Ecoclean addresses these aspects via different machine concepts adapted to the respective industries and tasks.

Whether it's in automobile manufacturing or its supplier industries, medical equipment production, mechanical engineering, machining, punching, drawing or bending of components, precision mechanics or optical devices – water-based cleaning with alkaline, neutral and acidic media is the technology most frequently employed in industry. True to the principle of "like dissolves like", it enters the field whenever water-based (polar) contamination – e.g., coolant and lubricant emulsions, polishing pastes, particles, abrasive materials, salts or fingerprints – need to be removed.

For water-based part cleaning processes, Ecoclean offers an extensive range of both standard cleaning systems and customer-specific designs. An optimum adaptation to the tasks and demands of distinct industries is key to superior cleaning quality, higher process reliability and plant availability, in addition to saving costs and resources.

EcoCflex 3 – the yardstick of cleaning quality and efficiency for robot cells Short cycle times and high flexibility have made robot cells an indispensable item of production equipment when it comes to preliminary, intermediate and final cleaning of engine and transmission parts such as cylinder heads and crankcases in automotive manufacturing. With its EcoCflex 3M/3L, Ecoclean sets new standards for such cleaning systems. This is due, on the one hand, to the SCARA manipulator developed specifically for use in cleaning equipment, replacing the conventional adapted six-axis articulated arm robot. Thanks to its rugged design consisting exclusively of high-strength aluminium and high-grade steel, augmented by an IP 69 protection class rating, the unit resists high-pressure water jets and is submersible. But Ecoclean has not merely adapted the robot itself – its control system, too, is matched to the application. The assembly can be operated conveniently via the CNC controller of the cleaning machine. The need for a separate PLC controlling the robot, which used to be a standard configuration, has thus been eliminated. Equipped with application-specific innovative process technology, the EcoCflex 3 enables the user to realize high and low pressure processes as well as injection flood washing flexibly in one cleaning station.

Forward-looking chamber systems for water-based cleaning processes The many and diverse tasks related to degreasing, intermediate and fine- cleaning of parts across a broad range of general industry applications are covered by Ecoclean with a range of different water-based cleaning systems.

The EcoCcube, an optimum entry-level model, is suitable for a variety of functions. With installation dimensions of only 2100 x 1630 x 1855 mm (L x W X H) in addition to low weight, this compact unit can be integrated into a manufacturing line easily and in minimum time. Due to the perfectly adapted size of its two standard flood tanks, it reaches its operating temperature quickly and in an energy-efficient manner.

The EcoCwave with its vacuum-tight work chamber is designed for immersion and spray processes ranging from coarse through intermediate to ultra-fine cleaning. A genuine all-rounder, it is equipped with two or three tanks as standard depending on the application. These tanks are mounted upright and of flow-optimized design to prevent the formation of chip or dirt pockets.

In addition, each tank has its own separate cleaning fluid circuit with full-flow and bypass filtration. Thanks to an optimized rollover unit in the work chamber, the fluids and mechanical cleaning devices – e.g., ultrasonic units and spray nozzles – can reach the product effectively from all sides.

All this not merely helps to improve cleaning quality but also tangibly increases the fluid lifetime, thereby reducing cleaning costs.

EcoCmax systems, too, can be easily adapted to the contamination type and specified cleanliness level by adjusting the cleaning program. A single- chamber system for three-stage cleaning processes plus drying, it features full-flow filtration in the work chamber filling and draining circuit as well as continuous bypass filtration on all flood tanks for reconditioning the rinsing baths via an integrated evaporator with heat recovery.

High process reliability for maximum cleanliness standards Part cleanliness specifications limiting particulates to the single-digit micrometer range and below while also imposing ultra-exacting thresholds for film-type contaminants are routinely imposed in diverse industries today. Such complex tasks are the domain of UCM AG, the precision applications business unit of the SBS Ecoclean Group. Starting out from a specific part geometry, material, contamination and cleanliness requirement, the company develops made-to-measure cleaning processes and corresponding ultrafine cleaning equipment comprising ultrasound technology. These ultrasound-based ultrafine cleaning systems are built to deliver unsurpassed levels of cleanliness reliably and efficiently. To this end, they are equipped with UCM's proprietary four-sided overflow system as standard. Another feature of these machines is that all components – e.g., tanks, storage vessels, pipelines, etc. – are of flow-optimized design to prevent accumulations of foreign matter or stagnant water.

The ideal equipment and process technology as well as process parameters for a given application can be effectively and reliably determined through cleaning trials with authentic contaminated parts at Ecoclean's and UCM's test centers.

Asiamold concludes with an array of potential business opportunities for the 3D printing and mould industries
Mar 16, 2018

GUANGZHOU --( ASIA TODAY )-- Asiamold ‒ Guangzhou International Mould & Die Exhibition successfully brought to a close its 12th edition of the fair. Held concurrently with SPS – Industrial Automation Fair Guangzhou from 4 ‒ 6 March at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou, the two fairs hosted 896 exhibitors and welcomed 72,068 professional buyers during the three-day shows. Enjoying year-on-year growth, the fairs continue to strengthen their position as a critical trade platform for both the industrial automation and the mould, die casting and additive manufacturing markets in China.

Before commencing her presentation on the 3D printing process, Ms Kim Francois, Managing Director, Materialise China, asked the audience whether they understood or had ever used 3D printing before. When just a few hands were raised from a packed seminar audience, it was clear that despite the undeniable industry buzz and growing awareness of 3D printing, knowledge about its application is still limited. Recognising this demand for a high-level gathering of key industry professionals in the 3D printing sector, Asiamold established the Guangzhou International 3D Printing Technology Application Summit which invited 13 speakers to deliver a range of insights into the industry over the two-day summit. Talks varied from the approach and impact of 3D printing in the China and European markets respectively, to how the mould and 3D printing industries can work together collaboratively.

Feedback from both exhibitors and attendees underlined why a concurrent event programme of talks and seminars is so useful alongside the exhibits. Seminar speaker, Ms Francois, explained: “It’s a no brainer for us as a company to take the opportunity of presenting at the summit and meet people from our target industry. It was a great chance to explain more precisely just what it is that we do and how we can provide important business opportunities for companies not yet incorporating 3D printing technology.”

The overwhelming feedback from both exhibitors and buyers at the show was that new 3D printing technologies do not have to replace traditional manufacturing techniques, but that they can be used by companies to simplify production lines, lower manufacturing costs and speed up production, ultimately increasing revenue and profitability. Many 3D printing exhibitors spoke of new business contacts made at the fair with companies who are in the beginning stages of employing 3D printing technology into their own production lines.

Key figures for AOG18 (combined with SIAF18):

* 896 exhibitors from 20 countries and regions (+12.7%)
* 72,068 visitors from 40 countries and regions (+12.5%)
* 60,000 sqm across 5 halls
* 231 buyer delegate groups (+6%)
* 80 presentations delivered during the concurrent event programmes

High quality seminars invite leading industry professionals to shed light on exciting new technologies and solutions

The concurrent event programme was organised to provide a comprehensive business platform for visitors, featuring the debut Automobile Lightweight Product and Technology Summit as well as the Guangzhou International 3D Printing Technology Application Summit.

The new Automobile Lightweight Product and Technology Summit hosted six noted speakers during the conference, delivering in-depth talks about the ways in which the auto industry can make lightweight automobiles by using lightweight materials, laser welding and die-casting. Integrating lightweight materials can thus create a more efficient and cost-effective production process. As the automotive industry is a key sector of visitors to the show, the summit was an ideal learning and research occasion for industry professionals to tap into cross-sector business opportunities.

With such a promising array of mould making, die casting, laser welding and 3D printing technologies on display at the show, it will be fascinating to see the progress of the industry in the South China region by the time Asiamold descends on Guangzhou next year.

Participants share their feedback of Asiamold:

Exhibitor: Ms Wu Shuqin, Director, Industrial Accessories Department, Dongguan Eontec Co Ltd (China)

“Our business operates in various sectors including the communication, LED, medical and automobile manufacturing industries. This is our second year at the fair and we prioritised the promotion of our automobile molding services and liquidmetal products. We chose to participate at Asiamold because the show is a part of the Messe Frankfurt family, which is well known to our target buyers in the car industry. We believe the fair is good way to promote our brand and products and the number of visitors at our booth has exceeded our expectations. A number of clients we have met with have been from overseas corporations which is very pleasing.”

Exhibitor: Mr Hyun-Joon Jang, Manager, Marketing Team, Korea Association for Die & Mold Industry Development (Korea) “We participate at the show to connect with mould and die companies from surrounding cities like Duangguan, Guangzhou and Zhongshan.
We come to the fair to both buy and sell. On the one hand we want to find outsourcing partners for raw materials, on the other hand we want to look for new customers. Asiamold is a really important platform to network and liaise with Chinese partners. We have witnessed new technologies and innovations by domestic Chinese suppliers and I am quite surprised by the speed of developments in China. The 3D printing and molding companies are collaborating rather than competing against each other.”

Visitor: Mr Aleksander Ciszek, CEO, 3YOURMIND, (United States)

“I represent a software company that creates innovative platforms for industrial 3D production. We are thinking about extending our business into the Asian market. Primarily I am looking for customers and partnerships at the fair. I think that to break into the Asian market it is necessary to work closely with local partners and to understand their culture better. There are many different sectors and types of companies present which is a good thing as it allows for some cross-sector collaboration opportunities.”

Seminar Speaker: Mr Xu Guojian, Deputy General Manager, Raycham Laser Technology Group Co Ltd (China)

“My presentation was concerned with the application of laser welding technologies in the automotive industry. Organising seminars concurrently with the fair allows the needs of fairgoers coming from diversified sectors to be met, and at the same time provide direction for future development. I was able to meet with many of the attendees to discuss potentially working together. I think that this type of seminar arrangement is an indispensable part of the fair.”

Seminar Speaker: Ms Kim Francois, Managing Director, Materialise China (China)

“When looking at materials we are always searching for applications and we believe that mould making is one of the industries with high potential to incoporate 3D printing. Right now there are not many case studies for potential new customers to see and understand, and so that’s why delivering talks like this can be very beneficial for our company. The mould and die business matches perfectly with the additive manufacturing. Although there is a lot of talk and buzz about 3D printing right now, the number of people who understand and know how to incorporate this technology is relatively low. It is my goal here to open the minds of those attending and then possibly collaborate with them at a later stage.”

Seminar Attendee: Mr Yulin Huang, Account Manager in Guangzhou Area, Hunan Farsoon High-Tech Co Ltd, Shenzhen Farsoon 3D Printing Co Ltd (China)

“By attending the ‘Guangzhou International 3D Printing Technology Application Summit’, I was able to find out more about the latest technologies on the market and also to meet with industry professionals for networking. The presentations provided us insights into the newest trends by showcasing advanced solutions developed by leading brands. The seminars have provided me with useful knowledge to help with my daily work.”

Fastener Taiwan 2018 to open in April at the Kaohsiung Exhibition Center
Mar 14, 2018

The Taiwan International Fastener Show, also known as Fastener Taiwan, will once again take place at the Kaohsiung Exhibition Center, from 10th – 12th April 2018, representing the culmination of what Taiwanese fastener manufacturing has to offer.

Fastener Taiwan is the only international B2B fastener show in Taiwan and serves as a trading platform for sourcing and procurement – featuring a complete range of fastener products.

Organized by the Bureau of Foreign Trade (MOEA) and Kaohsiung City Government – and implemented by the Taiwan Industrial Fastener Institute (TIFI) and the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) – Fastener Taiwan 2018 promises to be the best show yet.

The previous show was fully subscribed with 402 exhibitors occupying the equivalent of 1,000 booths and completely filling both halls of the Kaohsiung Exhibition Center. Visitor numbers reached over 30,000 – 1,996 of which were overseas visitors. For the 2018 show, overseas visitors are expected to be over 2,000 with visitors taking the opportunity to attend the show whilst visiting suppliers in the local area.

Taiwan ranks 3rd around the world in terms of the ‘state of cluster development’ and has become a cornerstone in the global fastener industry with its six decades of experience in raw material (annealing and stainless steel wire rod), fasteners (molding, heat processing and surface processing) and marketing networks.

Taiwan fastener makers produce a broad spectrum of products ranging from fundamental to high-end, spanning nuts, bolts and screws for ICT, automotive, aerospace, medical care, construction, transportation, general machinery and precision instruments.

In addition to proven capacity for supplying custom-spec fastener products to the automobile, 3C, aerospace and medical industries, Taiwan’s key fastener players have formed the High-end Fastener Products R&D Alliance, with government support, to greatly boost capacity for supplying the high-end market.
