PM China 2020 reports 14% visitor growth

September 7, 2020

The 13th International Exhibition for Powder Metallurgy, Cemented Carbides and Advanced Ceramics (PM China 2020) which was held August 12–14, 2020, welcomed over 25,793 visitors on-site, an increase of 14% on last year’s edition, reports the organiser, Uniris Exhibition Shanghai Co., Ltd.

The event is said to have promoted the revitalisation of the Powder Metallurgy and advanced ceramics industries under the theme of ‘Opportunity Creation, Information Sharing, Technology Exchange and Cooperation Enhancement’. 

PM China 2020 comprised an exhibition space of 30,000 m2, an increase of 20% on the previous year, which the organiser states highlights the growing influence of the event. A total of 494 exhibitors from more than ten countries and regions showcased their products and services, with the top ten countries being China, the USA, Germany, France, Italy, the UK, the Netherlands, Sweden, Austria and Japan.

According to the organiser, the exhibition also made headway in bringing more cutting-edge technologies and products to its visitors by featuring the following applications and products:

  • Raw materials with excellent performance such as metal powder materials, stainless steel materials, structural materials, functional materials and magnetic materials
  • Instructive testing equipment such as optical image screening machine, visual inspection instrument, particle size analyser, scanning electron microscope
  • Powder processing machinery such as high-efficiency mixers, jet mills, spray granulation dryers, were a centralised focus as usual 

A development seen during the exhibition was that CNC press, electric powder press, and hydraulic press companies reportedly expressed higher requirements for compaction accuracy, and a number of industries reported they had begun incorporating Additive Manufacturing into the production systems. 

In addition to the exhibition, the event comprised five summits featuring sixty-two academics, professors and business executives in the fields of Powder Metallurgy, cemented carbide and advanced ceramics to share new trends and development with more than 1,200 guests.

The 14th International Exhibition for Powder Metallurgy, Cemented Carbides and Advanced Ceramics (PM China 2021) is scheduled to take place from May 23–25, 2021.
