DP Technology Supports Smart Manufacturing Via Academic Partnership

The maker of ESPRIT CAD/CAM software recently hosted a smart manufacturing seminar with an academic partner in China.

DP Technology joined the College of Electromechanical Engineering at Beijing Union University and the Beijing Intelligent Mechanical Innovative Design Engineering Research Center to host the ESPRIT CAM & Smart Manufacturing seminar in Beijing on September 22, 2016. The seminar focused on critical manufacturing topics in China today to better support the ten-year national plan, Made in China 2025. The Made in China 2025 program promotes the transfer into smart manufacturing, improves applications in smart manufacturing and fosters the next generation in an array of manufacturing industries.

The event was attended by more than 60 people from local manufacturing companies, universities and members of the press. Topics covered included Industry 4.0, smart manufacturing, manufacturing automation and the partnership between industry and academia.

Guang Cheng, dean of the College of Electromechanical Engineering of Beijing Union University, addressed the current status and major trends in the future of smart manufacturing from historical, conceptual and practical aspects. Mr. Cheng stated that the College of Electromechanical Engineering is committed to developing high quality application engineers with an international point of view, and that it plans to facilitate cooperation with DP Technology to further the development of smart manufacturing.

DP Technology operates sales and technical support centers in Beijing, Tianjin and Guangzhou, and also adds value to education in China in an ongoing commitment to support the “Made in China 2025” plan, according to Mike Lauer, general manager at DP Asia-Pacific. “For many years DP Technology has partnered with higher education institutions, technical middle schools, technical high schools, and technical colleges,” said Mr. Lauer. “DP Technology works hand in hand with local schools and colleges to create certification and training centers and to help build the education revolution in China. DP Technology will be an official and major sponsor of the 7th National Vocational Students Skills Competition- CNC machining contest and will also provide technical support at the event. To sponsor the biggest machining contest in China, DP Technology is taking a proactive approach in engaging with the stakeholders in these industries, but also shows the capability and determination to support the Made in China 2025 plan.”
