Product Category at IAS

Product Category at IAS Shanghai NEWS AND MARKETS The display areas at the trade fair is divided into respective sectors like production and process automation, electrical systems, robotics, industrial IT & software. The production and process automation area consists of exhibitors showcasing a vast array of products and systems ranging from PLC, scada, industrial PCs, control systems, embedded systems, assembly & handling technology, linear positioning systems, data capturing and identification systems, industrial image processing systems, sensors and actuators, communication networks and field bus systems, measuring and test systems, laser technology and compressed air generation equipments etc. The electrical systems category consists of electrical power transmission systems including transformers, accumulators and UPS, electric switchgear and equipment for electrical control systems, electric and electronic test and measuring equipment, electric motors & frequency inverters, motor drives, cables & cabling accessories, electronic and opto-electronic components, apart from electrical power generation companies also exhibit mechanical power and drive transmission systems as well. As China undergoes industrial transformation, more and more organizations are focusing on integration of IT and software systems. Choosing the right industrial IT and software systems for your industrial sector can be quite a complicated task. Before finalizing any of the products decision makers need to understand all the functionalities and also anticipate any possible problems that can arise with integration of new systems with the existing ones. Thus visiting the industrial automation IT and software segment of IAS Shanghai proves to be of immense importance for the decision makers and interested buyers, as it helps in understanding the utility and also complexity of the systems they are interested in. With detailed on-site discussions, buyers can also assess the technical competency and after sales support of various manufacturers and service providers all under one roof, thus making it easier for them to finalize the right product that suits the needs and requirement of their respective manufacturing processes. The IAS Shanghai has on display products like production and manufacturing software, systems and development tools for industry, internet, intranet and extranet solutions, industrial IT hardware. Visitors can also meet professionals and consultancies that play host to comprehensive IT services to maximize the benefits of software products. China’s special bond with industrial robotics In the last five years, China has become a dominant player in the field of robotics. According to the data from International federation of Robotics (IFR), In 2008, China’s stock of operational industrial robots was around 32,000, by 2016, this number had reached near 340,000, and in fact it is expected to witness a 15-20 % rise till 2020. The main drivers of the growth are the automobile, electrical and electronics industry. Major contract manufacturers of electronic devices have already started to automate production. The semiconductor and the chip industries, for example, have strongly invested in automation. Large battery production facilities are being installed to meet the increasing demand for electric and hybrid cars. Automotive industry is one of the most a powerful drivers for industrial robot sales. China has become both the world’s largest car market and the world’s largest producer of cars – including electric cars – with much growth potential. Sales to China made up 25 % of the global supply of industrial robots to the automotive industry in 2016. Between 2011 and 2016, more than 100,000 units were installed, representing an average increase of 18 % per year. China is the largest growing consumer market with increasing demands for all kinds of consumer goods. Consequently, various other industries have also started to expand capacities and automate production. Over the next decade, there is no downside to this sector as the penetration of robots in China’s manufacturing set up is set to increase tremendously. At IAS Shanghai, the robotics display area will showcase the latest industrial robots, servo control, human-machine interaction techniques, robot vision and intelligent speech, robot simulation system, service robots, machinery, appliances & components for robotic products. One important reason why IAS Shanghai is one of the favorite events amongst automation professionals is the business culture of the host city. Shanghai has been the epicenter of technology startups in the last few years. The pace of growth of tech start-ups has been frightening. Unlike any other cosmopolitan city, Shanghai’s ability to rapidly reach mass scale is unparalleled. The city boasts an unending supply of highly skilled human resources with immense technological capabilities, increasing levels of foreign investment, large supplier base and ever improving research and development activities. Shanghai is also a major tourist destination, as it attracts a wide range of tourists due to its vibrant culture, nature, and modern infrastructure.
