Machinery fair moves to Shanghai

4 September 2018

Shanghai is hosting the first edition of the Shanghai International Furniture Machinery & Woodworking Machinery Fair, a new event resulting from a collaboration between CIFF and the WMF-International Woodworking Machinery Fair.

The new event enjoys the sponsorship of Eumabois, the European federation of furniture and woodworking technology and machinery manufacturers.

The exhibition will take place from September 10-13 in two pavilions – 7.1 and 8.1 – at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in the fair district of Hongqiao.

The first edition of the new event dedicated to woodworking technologies will feature more than 550 exhibitors and in excess of 1,100 machines over a floor space of 53,000m2. And the fourth edition of the furniture fair of CIFF Shanghai will feature 2,000 exhibitors over 440,000m2. It is expected to attract more than 90,000 visitors.

The show will provide a shop window for everything that is needed for manufacturing, from machinery to components, from automation to surface finishing solutions and from large-scale complex production lines “in full accordance with the Industry 4.0 philosophy” to machine tools. Bioenergy, timber building and forestry operations will also be covered.

The exhibition will include a section dedicated to large-scale equipment for wood-based panel production and to solid wood machining, two sectors for which the demand for innovation is particularly high.

Exhibitors include European machinery giants Homag, Weinig, Siempelkamp, Wenhoener, Biesse and SCM in addition to Chinese operators such as Nanxing, Jinan Restar, Yalian, Foma Group, Swpm, Lmt, Ruiwudi, Leke, Huajian, Yuantina, Lianrou, Hengkang, Fuyi and Zinqunli.

The organisers say the next edition of the Shanghai International Furniture Machinery & Woodworking Machinery Fair will be a clear demonstration that the Chinese woodworking industry has made huge progress both in terms of the quality of its machinery and in demand for its products.

It is the result of the efforts made by the CFTE- China Foreign Trade Guangzhou Exhibition General Corporation in collaboration with Red Star Macalline, leader in furniture distributor in China and with Adsale Exhibition Service Ltd.
