THE STRENGTH AND TECHNOLOGY OF ITALIAN-MADE MACHINE TOOLS ON SHOW IN CHINA
It offers cutting-edge technology and strength, the desire to produce tailor-made solutions, and a great tradition.
The Italian machine tool industry has a solid position in the global arena, and will soon be on show in China with a carefully selected group of companies.
The opportunity to learn about the best of Italian production will be the first edition of a new trade fair, Emte Eastpo 2014 , due to take place in Shanghai from July 14th to 17th 2014.
The Italian collective is being coordinated by the Italian Trade Promotion Agency (ICE), in combination with the manufacturers’ trade association, Ucimu-Sistemi per Produrre.
Italian machine tool production is already known and valued in China for the top quality and technological sophistication it has developed over the years.
There is increasing demand in Chinese manufacturing for very high-precision machine tools, especially in the energy sector and the aerospace industry.
However, the growth in Chinese imports of machine tools is also linked to established sectors aimed at the final user, such as the automobile and rail sectors, as well as the country’s rapid expansion in the fields of aeronautics, ship-building, and infrastructure development.
The Emte Eastpo fair is being organised by CECIMO, the association which brings together machine tool industries throughout Europe, and will offer Asian manufacturers a range of innovative technologies and practical solutions, all of the highest quality.
The event will take place at the New International Expo Centre in Shanghai, in a display area covering 50,000 square metres, and has been designed to meet the standards of the best international trade fairs in Europe. About 1200 exhibitors, both Chinese and foreign, are due to participate, and an estimated 50,000 specialised operators are expected to visit the event.
The Italian collective will consist of 17 companies from the sector, occupying a display space of 500 square metres in Hall W1, which will also include a stand for the two organisations, ICE and Ucimu. Visitors to the area, both Chinese and other nationalities, will have the opportunity to learn about some leading Italian companies, producing a whole range of plant and machinery.
These include systems for the working of marble, granite and composite stone, sophisticated vertical lathes, drilling and lapping machines, pneumatic feeders, borers, hydraulic drills, air suction and purification systems for machine tools and much more besides: all with the excellent service guarantees offered by Italian producers.
This therefore, will provide an important opportunity to showcase the latest advances in Italian technology in the field of machine tool production, and to promote the development of industrial and commercial relationships between Italian firms and local or international operators.
The figures indicate the value put on this Italian industry, both at international level and more especially in China. In the first half of 2013, Italy exported metal-working machines and equipment to this country worth approximately 252,447 million Euros (+2.2% on the same period in 2012), and equivalent to a market share of 13.8%. China therefore represents the top export market for this Italian sector, followed by the USA, Germany, Russia, France, Brazil, India and Turkey.
