The World Intelligent Manufacturing Summit (WIMS) 2018 opened on October 12. As an important supporting activity, the WIMS Expo was launched the day before the summit, which gathered hundreds of Chinese and foreign enterprises who opened a window of "intelligence" to the future of Nanjing.
The exhibition covered an area of about 50,000 square meters, including three exhibition pavilions concerning one for empowering intelligence manufacturing, one for ecological intelligence manufacturing and one for international and comprehensive application. Among them, the pavilion for empowering intelligence manufacturing focused on the display of contents and areas that drive the development of intelligent manufacturing, such as industrial internet, industrial software, artificial intelligence, integrated circuits, the Internet of Things, 5G and so on; the pavilion for ecological intelligence manufacturing centered on the ecological support system involving policies, science and technology, talents, parks and platforms built in the environment of intelligent manufacturing, such as national industrial planning and pilot demonstration zones, provincial and municipal industrial development platforms, and Nanjing’s parks; the pavilion for international and comprehensive application showed strengths of the world's well-known enterprises specializing in intelligent manufacturing, their key technologies and core products, such as industrial robots, high-end equipment, numerical control machine tools, integrated solutions to intelligent manufacturing, etc.
This world-class event in the industry was attended by global top-notch enterprises including Bosch and Siemens, Phoenix, Yaskawa, Dassault Falcon and Kuka, and renowned Chinese intelligent manufacturing enterprises such as CRRC, China Aerospace Science & Industry Corporation Limited, Haier, Huawei and Suning,com. Reporters on the scene saw that robots could make coffee and ice cream; one could experience virtual reality by wearing a display on the head; and the brainwave could be used to control a mechanical arm to grab eggs flexibly. What happened in the lab are now walking into people’s daily life.
According to a relevant responsible person of the WIMS organizing committee, the expo displayed the most advanced manufacturing concepts, equipment, technologies and products at home and abroad, so that Jiangsu enterprises could know about the latest international trend of intelligence manufacturing at their doorsteps, stand close to the world’s latest achievements, technologies and models and thus enhance their own core competitiveness for transformation and upgrading. The three pavilions are located in Pavilions 4, 5 and 6 at Nanjing International Expo Center. Citizens can make a reservation on the World Intelligent Manufacturing Summit’s WeChat account and official website.
