The 4th edition of national high-end fastener technological exchange and seminar in 2023

To implement in the level of industrial chain what A and B sessions of technological exchange and lecture of high-end fasteners have proposed, we could refer to the comprehensive introduction of what our German fastener associates do to promote Industry 4.0, as the new framework of international standard top-level design 

People who studies self-locking nuts should never consider the pseudo-proposition of “never loosening”. It would be more persuasive to display and promote the application case of electric transmission and distribution circuit in a distance of 100 kilometers, and it’s worth visiting Zhoushan as one of the digital factory cases was launched there. On the site of this lecture, we witnessed the gathering and inspiring of new thoughts, new products, new technologies and new crafts.


The 2023 core parts seminar of the transformation & sustainable development road towards profession, specification, uniqueness, novelty, digitization and intelligence

In the era of digital economy, the enterprises of “profession, specification, uniqueness and novelty” have become an important support for China's future industrial chain. More small- and medium-sized enterprises would focus on casting their expertise, supporting to strengthen the industry, and innovation to win the market. On the site of this seminar, not only could we see the German industrial representative enterprises of "hidden champion", experts and professors in the field of domestic wisdom college, but also could we find a number of entrepreneurs from the leading enterprises of profession, specification, uniqueness and novelty in the industry visiting.

In regard of the way and model of “profession, specification, uniqueness and novelty”, “transformation towards digitization and intelligence”, and “sustainable development” for core parts enterprises, various experts shared with visitors to discuss the “magic code” of high-quality development for enterprises of “profession, specification, uniqueness and novelty”.
