About 993 companies from 24 countries and regions participated in the exhibition, with a year-on-year increase of 13.3% in the exhibition area.

    Today, the 23rd Beijing Essen Welding & Cutting Fair (hereinafter referred to as “BEW”) is officially opened, the four-day exhibition will be held at the GD Modern International Exhibition Center in Houjie, Dongguan. Co-sponsored by Chinese Mechanical Engineering Society (CMES), Welding Institution of CMES, China Welding Association (CWA), Welding Equipment Committee of CWA, German Welding Society (DVS) and Messe Essen GmbH, the fair is held in Dongguan this year, for the first time breaking the conventional mode of being hosted in Beijing and Shanghai in turn in the past three decades. 

    It is learnt that the covering area of the 23rd BEW reaches 96,000 square meters. Until now, 993 exhibitors from 24 countries and regions worldwide have been attracted to participate in the fair. During the exhibition, it is expected that over 40,000 (times) professionals from more than 40 countries and regions are coming to visit and purchase here. At the same time, a series of supporting academic activities such as industrial forums, seminars, technology workshops and achievements presentations will be held, building an exchange and application platform for new equipment, new materials, new technologies and new trends in welding and cutting industries.

1.     The exhibition area of this year 

Nearly 100,000 square meters

    It is known that founded in 1987, the BEW is one of the world’s two leading professional welding exhibitions as well as the earliest industrial exhibition in China’s foreign cooperation. In recent years, against the backdrop of promoting the supply-side structural reform in depth, the demand for welding and cutting industries continues to grow along with the industrial transformation and upgrading in Dongguan.  

    Under this situation, the 23rd BEW is transferred to Dongguan from Beijing. According to the sponsors, this activity aims to adhere to the huge demand of manufacturing industry in Dongguan and the South China area at large as well as the advantage of being the pioneering place to implement the “Belt and Road” Initiative to further help expand the domestic and overseas markets for the welding and cutting industry.

   The mentioned principals said that this “southward” exhibition is popular among exhibitors in Dongguan, as the exhibitor solicitation was in a lively atmosphere. Up to now, the total exhibition area of the 23rd BEW reaches 96,000 square meters, marking a year-on-year increase of 13.3%. Restricted by the overall planning, many exhibitors could not have the access to the fair.

2.     Nearly a thousand companies worldwide actively participate in the fair

     Six exhibition halls and thirteen exhibition areas in total of the GD Modern International Exhibition Center are used in the fair to fully present the most equipment, products and services needed by welding and cutting sectors like mechanical equipment, technologies, materials and supporting instruments. Among that, the hardware tool exhibition area is newly set up for demonstrating all kinds of electron components, stamping parts, hardware parts and supporting parts which are necessary in the production and maintenance of welding and cutting equipment, so as to build a one-stop purchase platform of welding and cutting supporting parts.  

    It is known that the fair has attracted 993 companies including Panasonic, Hans SMC, OTC, Beijing Time, Golden Bridge, Shanghai-FANUC, Yaskawa,    Kuka, ABB, JASIC, GM, Hugong, Daqiao, GSK, Kaierda, Fronius and other famous companies up to now. On top of that, countries like Germany, the US, South Korea and Japan also form groups to participate in the fair, and the number of overseas companies reaches 117.

   The relevant principals of the organizing committee of BEW said that in recent years, the government continuously strengthens its supports on the advanced manufacturing technology. In this regard, “Made in China” comes along successively in many high-end welding and cutting areas which used to be monopolized by imported equipment for a long time.

   In this fair, Risong Technology, GSK, Hans SMC, Runwell, Kaitian, Bond, Megmeet, Golden Bridge, Daiqiao, Jingqun, Zhenkang and other domestic renowned exhibitors focusing on emerging areas like intelligent welding, laser welding and cutting, environmental equipment, 3D printing, high-end welding materials and intelligent workshops come to the stage one after another, providing more localized solutions with better cost performance for manufacturing companies.   

3.     Face-to-face invitations

The overseas buyers are enjoying the exhibition

    To meet the demands of exhibitors in transformation and upgrading as well as expanding markets, based on the existing buyer resources, the organizing committee of BEW put forward a series of “activity combinations” innovatively to invite more domestic and foreign buyers. Apart from the conventional “one-for-one” invitation of buyer data base, professional commercials and launching of local welding associations, the organizing committee even went to countries and regions along the “Belt and Road” Initiative such as Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia and India in the preliminary stage of fair preparation to conduct promotions, achieved friendly cooperation intentions with 11 organizations from the countries and regions mentioned above, organized relevant companies to visit and purchase as well as expanded the overseas emerging markets.  

   In addition, the organizing committee even took the opportunities of participating in the foreign exhibitions to set up booths in welding exhibitions held in countries like Germany, the US, Russia, Japan and Iran successively, inviting the overseas buyers to the BEW face to face; still, the place transfer of the BEW has received great supports from units including Dongguan governments and institutions at all levels, several functional departments, Dongguan Machinery Industry Association, Dongguan Safety Production Association, Hardware-machinery Mould Association Dongguan, Dongguan HUST Manufacturing Engineering Institute, and a large number of manufacturing industries in Pearl River Delta were widely invited for visiting and purchasing.     

   According to incomplete statistics, it is expected that more than 40,000 (times) professional audience from industries like machine manufacturing, pressure vessel, car manufacturing, railway locomotive, ship and aerospace would come to the exhibition.  

4.     Dozens of theme activities will be held

   The official website of the fair shows that during the 23rd BEW there will be “IFWT 2018 Innovative and Smart Manufacturing, Welding and Cutting”, “China Welding Forum 2018 – Robot Welding Materials on the Order Meeting of Raw and Auxiliary Materials”, “The 19th Conference of the Welding Materials on the Order Meeting of Raw and Auxiliary Materials”, “Welding Patents & Achievements Display” and dozens of theme activities on new products, new technologies and new process lectures, constituting the international gala of welding and cutting industry.

   At the site there is a “Welding Patents and Scientific & Technological Achievements Display Area”, which is especially established to display the national patent technologies of company, university, institute and individual full of market development potential, as well as the scientific and technological identified achievements above the provisional level with relatively higher scientific and technological contents and advanced level in the sector, so as to better improve the launching and application of the latest scientific and technological achievements as well as the self-innovation ability in welding technology, accelerating the industrial transformation and upgrading.

   Besides, after the exhibition the Report on Comprehensive Technology of the BEW will be released, fully reflecting the situation and achievements of the 23rd BEW, the new technologies, equipment and materials appeared at the fair as well as the new trend of future development of the industry, which would provide lessons for more welding companies and workers to know and learn the international advanced welding and cutting technologies as well as to pioneer and innovate in the industry.
