Chinaplas 2019

Chinaplas 2019 - Quick Facts

The 2019 exhibition took place in Guangzhou, southern China (near Hong Kong).  It’s an annual event that alternates between Guangzhou and Shanghai each year.  This was the first time we’ve been to this particular exhibition and it was certainly an experience;

163,000 people over the four days (yes, that figure is correct!).

Busiest day (Wednesday) saw 61,699 visitors alone.

42,005 visitors were from outside China, STV Machinery personnel met several UK customers on the stand.

250,000 (sqm) of total exhibition area.

3,500 exhibitors.

Along with all the big names, there are plenty of small manufacturers with names we’re not familiar with in the UK.

Yizumi at Chinaplas take the opportunity to demonstrate some of the latest technology available to the plastics industry.  You’ll see some of the most up-to-date technology detailed on this webpage.  It really does set them apart from some of the competition.

The event attracts all types of people from across the plastics world.  There are customers and suppliers with interests in machinery, material, connectivity, transport – the list goes on.  Top level managers as well as machine operators attend the event and it was a great opportunity to discuss varying perspectives.

This years show was heavily focused on Industry 4.0 (the connectivity of systems), so it was really interesting to see what is possible and what is coming in the near future.

Definitely worthwhile.  There were several UK customers who wanted to see the inner workings of Yizumi, so it was great to show them around.  It was extremely beneficial to see the latest industry innovations in operation and to learn about possible applications.  After all, our customers may well want to explore how to improve a process with these latest techniques.

The next Chinaplas is in Shanghai in April 2019.

Yizumi will be at the next Interplas exhibition in 2020.

In the meantime, they’ll be at the upcoming K 2019 show, in Düsseldorf – Germany, as well.

Don’t forget that we always have machinery available for inspection at our showroom as well.

This was my first visit to the Guangzhou event and it was manic. The venue is smaller than Shanghai's exhibition centre which restricts the size of stand the big manufacturers can book. To compensate, Yizumi ran an open house event in their local manufacturing facility which demonstrated 14 complete production cells, it was very impressive. Customers were able to organise complimentary transport to the facility - Yizumi really put on a great show.

Back at the exhibition, Yizumi demonstrated some cutting edge technology on a range of machinery and it was a great opportunity to discuss these advanced applications with customers. Yizumi also had a live demonstration of their industry 4.0 solution which was of personal interest. A great opportunity that I would advise anyone thinking of visiting to take up at least once.

Summary

Chinaplas combined with the open house and factory tour was a fascinating insight into the world of Yizumi and a keyhole view of the future in store for this astonishing company.  It really does need to be seen to be believed.
