Over 1,100 Exhibitors at Global Sources’ SIMM
The Shenzhen International Machinery Manufacturing Industry Exhibition (SIMM) opened this week with more than 1,100 exhibitors from mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and 16 other countries and regions.
Organised by Shenzhen Xieguang Convention & Exhibition Company, Shenzhen Huanyue Convention & Exhibition Company, and China Shenzhen Machinery Association, SIMM covered 110,000 m2 of exhibition space at the Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center (SZCEC), running from 30th March to 2nd April.
Now in its 16th edition, the four-day exhibition included five concurrent shows: Metal Cutting Machine Tools; Metal Forming Machine Tools; Intelligent Integrations & Robotics; Mould, Special Steel, Precision Part & 3D Technology; and Cutting Tools & Tools.
Yao Jiguang, General Manager of SIMM, commented, “Visitors can find the latest intelligent systems, automation and robotics technologies throughout SIMM. Flexible manufacturing automation systems dominate the show floor, ranging from machining centers and CNC machine tools to sheet metal stamping and laser cutting. Many exhibitors are also showcasing complete assembly line systems instead of individual machine tools. Digital processing and manufacturing technologies are also highlights of this year’s show.”
Global Sources acquired a 70% stake in SIMM in April 2013.
