Driven to be SMART, PTC ASIA Showcases Excellent Product and Precision Processing
2023 is the starting year for the comprehensive implementation of the spirit of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, and it is also a crucial year for the implementation of the "14th Five-Year Plan". The 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China has injected new momentum and vitality into the revitalization of China's industrial economy. Against this background, the PTC ASIA, focusing on industrial basic components and intelligent manufacturing, is of special significance, said Xudong Du, Chairman of China Hydraulics Pneumatics & Seals Association (CHPSA), one of the hosts.
This exhibition has once again proven its exceptional appeal on a grand scale. With over 1,700 companies exhibiting high-end equipment, core components, and solutions in a venue that covers nearly 100,000 square meters, it is clear that the exhibition is highly sought-after. The exceptional exhibitors of the industry include HAWE, ATOS, Kawasaki, KTR, Poclain, Hengli, Taifeng, Huade, YUCI, Liyuan, JELPC, EMC, STNC, Freudenberg Dichtomatik, Schaeffler, Timken, C&U, LYC, SEW, Donly, Tailong, GNORD, NGC, JIE, WANSHSIN， Jinlong, ABLE, Fangli, CHOHO, Hengjiu, CPT, SCS, Gates and SIT INDEVA etc. PTC ASIA not only serves as a benchmark platform for trade, communication, and win-win collaboration in the high-end manufacturing industry, but also provides visitors with a golden opportunity to discover new products and evaluate market trends. This year, the exhibition has reached a new level with the expansion of the venue to include the OE2 and OE3 halls. In the “Special Exhibition Area for Precision Processing” exhibition area, nearly 20 companies showcased a variety of “pioneering” and “first-time” precision machining equipment, witnessing the power of precision machining equipment and the hope for the future of the industry.
Augusto Di Giacinto, Trade Commissioner of Italian Trade Agency (ITA) Shanghai Office, said that Italy is the fourth largest export country for China, and many of the Italian companies participating in this exhibition have already established close business contacts in China, while others are newly entering the Chinese market and hoping to expand new cooperation opportunities.
Mr. Jin Kui, Business Manager of the Industrial Chain Systems Foreign Trade Sales Division of Qingdao Choho Industrial Co., Ltd., gave the feedback as follows: “PTC ASIA holds great significance for us. As we are all aware, in the past two years, cooperation and communication within the industry have been limited due to various uncertain factors. Choho Industrial aims to take advantage of this exhibition to engage in more meaningful face-to-face communication with industry colleagues, customers, and partners. Together, we can explore the future development direction and technological trends of the industry.”
Many exhibitors, including well-known domestic hydraulic companies, generally believe that PTC ASIA is a grand event in the hydraulic industry. It is their hope that through such a communication platform they can display their new products to customers and discuss future development directions with their peers. PTC ASIA allows enterprises to access more overseas customers, laying the foundation for internationalization strategy.
