The physical edition of TaipeiPlas is scheduled to return from September 27 to October 1 this year at Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, Hall 1 (TaiNEX 1) in conjunction with ShoeTech Taipei. A month-long online exhibition will continue till October 27. This year’s TaipeiPlas focuses on three major themes – “Smart Machinery,” “Next-gen Materials” and “Circular Economy – Net Zero Carbon Emissions.” Starting from June, the organiser, Taitra, launches monthly theme-based campaigns to unveil the highlights of the coming TaipeiPlas with social media news, exhibitor & production introductions, e-newsletters and videos. E-newsletter subscription and visitor registration are both now available on the official website.
The pre-show monthly campaigns for the show kick off with the first theme “Smart Manufacturing” in June. The plastics and rubber manufacturing has become greatly different from what it was, says Taitra. In the past, the manufacturing processes of plastics and rubber such as the parameters setting, the material selection, and the processing of complex components relied on the operation and judgment of experienced labor. The smart manufacturing technologies today have turned the production line to be fully automated, more efficient, meanwhile, led the industry to create new business models.
Key industry players from home and abroad all gear up to make a splash at the trade show by presenting their smart machines and smart manufacturing solutions. FCS and FKI for example, the two leading plastic injection moulding machine manufacturers in Taiwan have integrated Manufacturing Execution System (MES) into every section of their machine production and assembly lines. Multiple benefits are achieved, including more accurate production control, improved quality management and production cost reduction. Taiwan plastic and rubber machinery manufacturers are transforming to become smarter, and at the same time, providing a full line of services in building smart production lines overseas.
Besides onsite and online exhibition, TaipeiPlas 2022 will come with a lineup of seminars, forums and featured events, On-site Guide for Online Visitors, PlasSpotlight Live, themed guided tours, and procurement meetings, all together to explore the innovative trends in plastic and rubber industry and also to create a refreshing exhibition experience.
