With the wide increasing demand of national defense, aviation, railway high-speed, automobile, mold and other important equipment manufacturing industries, the winter of CNC machine tool and metalworking industry has almost drew to an end, signaled by the boost of the industrial production scale. This rebound will be reflected vividly on MWCS 2017. A strong lineup of world-leading brands will bring their latest products and technologies at three major thematic pavilions. The number of machine tools being showcased at the show is estimated to more than 1,000 and the whole scale has also witnessed an increase of 25 per cent.

Intelligence and networking will be the irresistible trend of CNC machine tool system and metalworking. In the future, Internet will exert even more powerful influence on the manufacturing process of CNC system and metalworking field. This year, MWCS will attract over 300 exhibitors from sheet metal, shaping, stamping machinery manufacturing and other related industries. The show will display a complete metal shaping industrial chain including laser cutting, 3D printing, shearing, folding, stretching, straightening, stamping, forging and pressing, robot production line, welding, surface treatment, mold, software, measurement and inspection, transport, safe production and research. Meanwhile, organizers will not only gather metalworking giants from home and abroad but also invite professional buyers from various industries involving engineering, agricultural, packaging, animal husbandry machinery, automobile covering parts, chassis cabinets, aviation, rail transport, air-conditioning pipe, elevator equipment, electronic products to jointly compose a magnificent chapter of CNC machine tool and metalworking.
