Die & Mould China (DMC) 2017

12. September 2017

Following the success of the DMC 2016, Saarschmiede was once again exhibiting at the trade fair in Shanghai from June 13 to 16.

The DMC, an international trade fair for the areas of extrusion and injection molding technology as well as related facilities, is among the most important trade fairs in this sector, with all the major players of the industry and their most important suppliers present. In addition to our classic field of application, i.e. mold materials, this year's thematic focus was, among others, on molding and forming technology, heat treatment, machining precision engineering and non-traditional processing machines, additive manufacturing processes as well as automatic integration and robotics. This year, the DMC could boast of more than 95,000 visitors.

In addition to Saarschmiede, all the companies of the mold industry with sector-wide reputation and their material suppliers were present. Many of our business partners, as well as new and potential customers, among them representatives of mold makers, end users, heat-treatment facilities and material traders, found their way to our booth, which we jointly ran with our dealers Suzhou Excellent Snyder (Special Steel Technology Co. Ltd.) and Shanghai Sade (Mold Technology Co. Ltd.).

After a successful year in the Chinese market, Saarschmiede took the opportunity at the DMC to consolidate its reputation as a competent partner from Germany for high-quality tool steels and to strengthen the trust of our customers and, in turn, their customers in our cutting-edge brand.

We are more than satisfied with the results of the talks at the fair and will continue the exchange with our customers beyond the DMC. The partnership at the booth with our two dealers was also extremely successful; we very much appreciate their contribution at the fair and the daily cooperation.
We are already looking forward to the DMC 2018 and would be delighted to meet you there as well.
