This is what the industry has been waiting for: BEIJING ESSEN WELDING & CUTTING, Asia's leading welding trade fair, will kick off with over 900 exhibitors. The companies will present their products and services for joining, cutting and coating at Shanghai New International Expo Center from 16 to 19 June 2021. After the trade fair had to be cancelled last year due to the pandemic, the organisers are expecting strong interest from trade visitors this year. Numerous decision-makers from the mechanical and plant engineering, railway transport, infrastructure, automotive, oil pipeline, shipbuilding and aerospace industries are expected to attend.
Welding and cutting products are in high demand in China: over 55 percent of global steel production comes from the country. Therefore, there is a high demand for solutions and know-how around further processing. BEIJING ESSEN WELDING & CUTTING offers an ideal platform on more than 80,000 square metres to get to know innovations for the key technologies of joining, cutting and coating, to exchange ideas and to place orders. Numerous large companies such as Kjellberg, Eckelmann, Kawasaki and Panasonic will be there. Many niche suppliers and young companies also present themselves at the trade fair. For suppliers from abroad, BEIJING ESSEN WELDING & CUTTING is an excellent opportunity to open doors to the Asian market. This is shown by the strong interest in the German Pavilion. At the joint stand supported by the German Ministry of Economics, 13 German companies and their partners will present their solutions "Made in Germany".
