CIMT2023 Opens Amid Global Expectations!


At 10:00 a.m. on April 10, 2023, the global machine tool community, as well as the upstream and downstream segments of the industry gathered at China International Exhibition Center (Shunyi Hall), Beijing, for the opening ceremony of the much-anticipated 18th China International Machine Tool Show (CIMT2023)! CIMT2023 is a special exhibition that comes amid the great expectations of industry insiders and outsiders, as China has achieved positive results in overall epidemic control, and steadily moved into a stage of regular epidemic control when the measures against Category B infectious diseases have come into effect.


CIMT2023 is themed by "Collaborative Innovation on Digital & Intelligent Manufacturing is Embracing the Future" in response to the development trend and market demand of China's machine tool industry. Since its first edition in 1989, CIMT has been held successfully 17 times over the past 34 years, making remarkable contributions to the reform and opening-up of China, as well as the innovation and upgrading of China's equipment manufacturing sector. As the most prestigious, largest and most influential machine tool exhibition in China, CIMT is recognized as one of the four major international machine tool exhibitions in the world. In the context that China is developing a modern industrial system, advancing high-standard opening up, and speeding up efforts to build its strength in manufacturing, quality and digitalization, CIMT will always be the best window and platform via which industry players observe, study and develop the Chinese machine tool market.

Mr. Zhang Zhigang

Host: Mr. Wang Liming

Boosted by China's goal of developing the real economy and promoting high-quality development, thanks to the elaborate cultivation of the hosts and organizers, the active participation of global exhibitors, and the concerted efforts of partners and industrial enterprises, CIMT has kept enhancing its brand status and influence in the world, and its appeal in the upstream and downstream segments of the industry. CIMT2023 brought together some 1,600 manufacturers from 28 countries and regions, as well as machine tool associations and trade promotion institutions from 13 countries and regions such as Germany, Japan, Switzerland, the U.S., South Korea, Spain, Italy, the UK, India, France, Czech, and Hong Kong, China and Taiwan, China, with a total exhibition area of 140,000 square meters.


During CIMT2023, the host, exhibitors and relevant institutions will organize a variety of exchanges activities. Under the theme of the exhibition, the host will deliver the International CEO Forum of Machine Tool Manufacturing Industry 2023, the Symposium on the Application of Chinese CNC Machine Tools in Key Areas, the Award Ceremony for the Top 10 Advanced Members, the CNC Machine Tool Achievement Exhibition, the Joint Meeting of Leaders of Overseas Machine Tool Associations, the International Business Symposium and the NC-Link Community Ecology Conference. Also, more than 100 various technical lectures will be offered, to meet the needs of visitors at all levels and enhance their experiences. The exhibition is believed to be an industrial event for exchanging new technologies, sharing new experience, promoting new cooperation and embracing a new future.


In 2022, China's machine tool industry was stable overall despite the impact of the epidemic on production and consumption. With the total output value, consumption and imports of metalworking machine tools standing at 27.11 billion U.S. dollars, 27.41 billion U.S. dollars and 6.6 billion U.S. dollars respectively, China remains the world's largest machine tool producer and consumption market.


With the adjustment of epidemic control policies, the expansion of domestic demand and the restoration of social confidence in investment, relying on China's status as the world's largest manufacturing country and its robust domestic demand, the Chinese machine tool market will remain capacious.

CIMT2023 has kicked off, and will showcase state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies and equipment from around the world. Welcome to the scene for the grand spectacle!
