The 2018 edition of PTC Asia has just ended and the impressions and evaluations drawn by Duplomatic are very positive.
PTC Asia is of course a very important event, able to attract visitors from every part of the world and generate international business opportunities.
At our stand we met many companies, both end users and distributors and OEMs from Asia, the Middle East and Eastern Europe, some are already business partners of Duplomatic, others are instead new stakeholders with which to establish agreements and collaborations in order to expand the commercial influence in the areas still not covered.
From the supply side, PTC Asia 2018 has shown that the industrial hydraulics components market has certainly grown. We like to emphasise how, after having launched electromechanical actuators as well as proportional valves last year, this year's edition saw a significant increase of these types of components supplied by Chinese companies. This demonstrates Duplomatic's capacity for innovation, recognised as a plus in the sector.
At PTC Asia 2018, Duplomatic Motion Solutions presented its new proportional valves range with fieldbus and its high dynamic proportional valves.
Furthermore, we wish to emphasise how Industry 4.0 has become extremely topical in the Asian market, since even Chinese companies are also starting to use the advantages of machine-machine or man-machine connection to improve product performance.
Overall the presence of Duplomatic at PTC Asia, as part of the Italian delegation, obtained great visibility thanks also to its strong presence in China due to the success of the Hydraulics production site in Shanghai. Established a few years ago, the production momentum of this plant confirms the benefits of the internationalisation strategy chosen by Duplomatic to transfer skills and production methods to China and to manufacture components and systems directly on site, satisfying the volumes and times required by the very large and dynamic Chinese market.
