PM China 2016, China’s largest international Powder Metallurgy exhibition, took place at Shanghai’s Everbright Convention and Exhibition Center from April 27-29. The event attracted more than 360 exhibitors from around the world, making it the largest event in the series to-date.
PM Expo’s Maggie Song told PIM International, “The successful combination of a wide range of exhibition booths, expert tutorials and a parallel technical conference succeeded in attracting the attention of high numbers of international and local visitors.”
Exhibitors from China included materials, equipment and parts suppliers covering technologies including conventional Powder Metallurgy, Hot Isostatic Pressing and Metal Injection Molding. International industry suppliers present included leading companies from USA, UK, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland, India, Singapore and Japan.
“We believe that many new business deals were done and a lot of new contacts were created through this effective networking platform. Visitors from home and abroad were satisfied with the wide range of display,” stated Song.
As in previous years, Metal Injection Moulding technology was prominent in both the exhibition hall and the conference. On April 26th Prof. Randall M. German, San Diego State University, presented a one-day MIM tutorial. This was followed on April 27th by the 2016 Shanghai International MIM Symposium, which featured presentations from Chinese and international speakers.
PM China 2017 will take place from April 26-28, 2017 at the Shanghai Everbright Convention and Exhibition Center, with the organisers already reporting high demand for space.
