Green, smart, and advanced are the buzzwords of the plastics and rubber industry, which is constantly innovating to meet the demands of the circular economy and sustainable development. CHINAPLAS 2023, the largest plastics and rubber exhibition in Asia, will showcase the latest technologies and solutions to help the industry tackle environmental challenges and drive productivity and quality.
The event, which will be held at the Shenzhen World Exhibition and Convention Center from April 17 to 20, 2023, will feature three themed areas that highlight the latest trends in plastics recycling and bioplastics, digital intelligent manufacturing, and 3D printing.
The circular economy is a key focus for the plastics industry, which has traditionally followed a linear model of take, use, and dispose. To reduce plastic waste and prevent it from leaking into the environment, the industry is embracing a closed-loop system in which plastics are produced, used, and reused in a continuous circular process. CHINAPLAS 2023 will have a recycled plastics area, a bioplastics area, and a recycling technology area, covering more than 14,000 square meters, where visitors can explore the latest sustainable solutions.
Over 200 machinery manufacturers and material suppliers, including Erema, Starlinger, Avien, TOMRA, Jianfeng, Guolong, NatureWorks, Biono, Ruian Technology, and many others, will showcase the latest environmentally friendly plastic materials and processing technologies. With a focus on innovation and win-win, the exhibition aims to inspire new ideas and opportunities for businesses and promote a more sustainable future.
The rubber and plastic industry is also becoming increasingly intelligent and digitized, thanks to Industry 4.0 and cutting-edge technologies that improve efficiency, reduce costs, and enhance the user experience. Digital intelligent manufacturing systems are helping companies to meet current and future challenges in every production link, from product design to supply chain management. As plastic processing facilities transform into digital smart factories, the demand for advanced machinery, sensors, production management systems, and other products in the manufacturing industry is also increasing.
To showcase the latest advancements in injection molding and intelligent manufacturing, CHINAPLAS 2023 will have an exhibition area of over 60,000 square meters and bring together nearly 330 solution providers from around the world. Leading Chinese suppliers such as Haitian, Zhen Xiong, LK, Borch, Yizumi, Datong, and Inovance, as well as international brands such as Siemens, Kekong, B&R, Beckhoff, Baumüller, Stäubli, Motan, Engel, Demag, Fanuc, and Wittmann Battenfeld, will display their intelligent manufacturing solutions and machines in the themed area.
Automation and 3D printing are also driving technological progress in the plastics industry. Automation can help manufacturers get more out of their existing equipment, and 3D printing is becoming increasingly popular in industries such as automotive, medical, and aerospace. CHINAPLAS 2023 will have a 3D technology zone where visitors can explore new 3D printing materials, technologies, and hardware from solution providers such as Yizumi, BLT, Zhongwang, Hanbang, Deco, and others.
With a focus on green, smart, and advanced technologies, CHINAPLAS 2023 aims to be the leading platform for the rubber and plastics industry, inspiring innovation, driving sustainable development, and promoting global cooperation.
