The ongoing pandemic has had a huge economic impact globally, but also presents new opportunities. Given the strong demand for personal protective gear and other health equipment, Asiamold will setup a brand new Epidemic Prevention Equipment Manufacturing Zone to showcase the manufacturing process of various products. With this zone, Asiamold aims to help industries resume normal operations as soon as possible.

The 14th edition of Asiamold will take place from 11 – 13 August 2020 at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou to showcase the latest and most in-demand mould making, die casting, metalworking, 3D printing, laser and automation technologies. The fair will be held concurrently with SPS – Industrial Automation Fair Guangzhou once again. Through the synergistic effect of the two shows, exhibitors can expect to find ample business opportunities and to connect with enterprises from various industries including aerospace, automotive, medical, home appliances, mobile phones, cosmetics, electronics and more.

In order to give show participants a more comprehensive understanding, the newly setup Epidemic Prevention Equipment Manufacturing Zone will showcase the complete production process of anti-epidemic products in multiple dimensions, including live production lines, real-time factory streaming, video-recordings, virtual simulations and more. A number of finished products such as facemasks, ventilators, infrared thermometers, goggles, pharyngeal swabs and disinfecting supplies will be displayed. Moreover, numerous industry specialists will also be invited to explain the technologies and future prospects in manufacturing protective equipment at relevant seminars, which will further support enterprises to gain an advantage in the market.
