This morning, the opening ceremony of the 2017 3rd Exposition for Investment and Trade of Advanced Equipment Manufacturing in West Bank of the Pearl River (AEME) was held in GICEC.
There are 233 exhibitors in this show with more than 700 equipment to host a big show with exhibition, trade, investment promotion, contract signing, communication and etc. Mr. Hu, the mayor of Guangdong province, Mr. Miao, the head of the manufacturing and IT departments, Mr. Li, the secretary of the party committee of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and many other leaders from the government participated in this opening ceremony.
The exhibition area includes“8 cities and 1 district”.
Compared to the AEME last year, there is one more city, Yunfu, joining the show. Therefore, in this year, there are “eight cities and one district” and the exhibition period extends from 2 to 3 days, from 28th, August to 30th August. 288 contracts for more than 336.85 billion yuan are going to be signed, which is far more than the 230.77 billion last year.It is not hard to find our that, the influence of the AEME is increasing.

More advanced exhibits are displayed this year.
This year, AEME attracts several top companies in the manufacturing industry including Midea, KuKa, Gree, ABB Robotation, HIT Robot and etc. All of them bring their advance products to the show.
For example, this robot with seven axises pouring the beer into 3 glasses one by one is one of the advanced exhibits. During this procedure, if the staff push the axis of the robot, the robot will not make any reaction on it. However, once the staff push it for the second time, the speed of the working axis will slow down immediately.
We are being told that, the above axis of the robot is a display of KuKa (Shanghai), named LBR iiwa. There are torque sensors on all its seven axis which can make reaction automatically once there are barriers. This is a unique technology in the world. By the way, KuKa, has become one of the partners of the Robotation Academy.
This is the third time that Midea participating in AEME. 5 kinds of Midea robots including guidance robot, nursing robot and etc come this time.
Except those small but advanced equipment, this huge equipment has successfully caught visitors’ attention as well. This is an eight-color-tank seal machine weighted 37 tons in Foshan display area and it is the heaviest equipment in this show. However,it is using-friendly. One worker can change the mould within half an hour and that is 50% faster than the same kind of equipment in Europe.
Even though this is merely the first time Yunfu city participate in this show, a hydrogen vehicle has been driven inside the venue by their exhibitors.
Innovations are in both its content and its format.
Compared to the previous AEME, this AEME has innovation in both its content and its format. As we known, there will be three professional forums around intelligent manufacturing, the standard of the technique and patent. Specially,the thousands patent exhibit area is new for this year which indicates that intentions are being paid on innovation.
Especially, except the navigation area, there is a civil-military integration area. Three to five patents which are transformed from military use to civil use and has already launched in the West Pearl River belt are showed in the area. Three major projects, internet-satellite system, 4K video system, X-bang weather radar are exhibited.
In addition, in this area, a performance area for civil-military integration patent of a capacity of 80-100 people are being set up. Project promotion are held in the area as well.
