DMC2016 to Showcase an Array of 3D Printing Technology

The 16th China International Exhibition on Die & Mold Technology and Equipment (DMC2016), will be held from June 28 to July 1, 2016 at the Shanghai New International Expo Center (E1-E6 Halls). It is a major annual event in the Chinese mold industry. The event is designed to help lead the industry in terms of the new economic situation in China, as well as new developments within the sector as well as in terms of promoting necessary technological change and transformation. These industry-leading moves will help to transition mold manufacturing into and through a new phase of growth. Besides high-end precision processing equipment and technologies as well as advanced mold manufacturing, this year’s expo will highlight new technologies meant to strengthen the traditional mold manufacturing sector by bringing in:

  •  3D additive manufacturing
  • laser equipment
  • robot automation
  • integration

The event also plans to feature new formats, including:

  • intelligent mold manufacturing
  • a cloud-based manufacturing ecosystem
  • Internet Plus, the Chinese government’s program to promote the application of the internet and other information technologies across conventional industries.

With a focus on the continuous optimization and upgrading of the mold industry, DMC2016 plans to showcase a wide range of products and technologies defined by the new characteristics of refinement, automation, digitalization, integration, networking and intelligence.


3D Printing  is said to be one of the most popular manufacturing technologies at DMC2016

The combination of GF’s processing solution and EOS’s solution utilizes additive manufacturing technology to produce innovative mold inserts by integrating the AgieCharmilles AM S290 tooling solution with EOS’s technology. All if which will be showcased at the event. SODICK’s 3D metal printer leverages the critical technologies for all the processes to provide one-stop solutions. Other exhibits include technologies from industry-grade 3D additive manufacturers, including 3D printing technology from world-renowned Stratasys, 3D color printing technology from 3D Systems and other high-end, industry-leading 3D additive manufacturing technologies, among them metal laser sintering. Shaanxi Hengtong Intelligent Machine will also be showcasing its products at this year’s expo. Xi’an Bright Laser Technologies will participate in the exhibition for the first time as an industry representative.

DMC2016 is set to become an event where the traditional mold manufacturing industry meets future technologies. Industry professionals from both China and abroad are welcome to attend the event where they will have extensive opportunities to network and engage in an exchange of viewpoints with industry peers. They plan to make every effort to create a great industry event that can keep up with what is going on in the industry.

They look forward to meeting and exchanging opinions with you during the exhibition!
