Some 25 companies from around the world signed exhibition agreements at a signing ceremony for the China International Import Expo on April 28, spanning seven commercial exhibition areas which include cars and consumer goods, among others.

Thirteen high-end smart manufacturers penned deals to bring their cutting-edge products to the CIIE, including Georg Fischer, one of the top manufacturers in terms of technical abilities in such areas as electrical discharge machining, milling and laser beam machining, Bystronic Group, a world leader in advanced solutions for sheet metal processing, Starrag Group, a global leader in high-precision machine tools, Hurco Group, a leading supplier of high-tech machine tools, Trumpf, a world leader in laser beam machining, Waldrich Coburg, acclaimed for its gantry machine tools, such as the Taurus machining center which won Germany’s Red Dot Design Award in 2017.

Bystronic Group will exhibit a 10-kilowatt laser cutting machine tool at the CIIE, the only machine of its kind in mass production, while Waldrich Coburg will demonstrate the Taurus, a leading product in terms of weight, size and price, in Asia for the first time

Hurco Group will bring over its best equipment for the exhibition in order to promote 2025 Intelligent Manufacturing of China. It will display its most advanced smart control system, WinMax, which is compatible with other production units, such as mechanical arms, and can perform digital, network and intelligent manufacturing.

China is a major global manufacturer and makes up 20 percent of the world’s manufacturing industry, but it is also trying to transform itself into a world power in the field. It has high demand for vast amounts of production equipment but also high quality, and will need to import some of the best machines available from around the globe, which is where the CIIE comes into play.
