Starrag: Premiere in Shanghai Further expansion of the Starrag presence in China

Shanghai is playing an increasingly decisive role for Starrag in the Swiss company‘s strategy for growing its presence in China. As in Beijing, the machine tool manufacturer has an office in Shanghai, but the latter, China‘s most important industrial city, is also home to a well-equipped TechCenter owned by the company. For the first time, Starrag will be exhibiting at the China CNC Machine Tool Fair (CCMT 2018) from 9 – 13 April 2018 in Shanghai, as one of several Swiss contributors.

With this first appearance at the first important trade fair of the year, the company intends to build on its successes in the aviation industry, as well as increasing its presence at trade fairs in China: From this year onwards, the Swiss company will alternate each year between exhibiting at the CIMT in Beijing and the CCMT in Shanghai. The decision to appear at the CCMT is linked to the steadily growing importance of the Shanghaibased trade fair, which now covers an area as large as the CIMT in Beijing. In addition, the number of exhibitors has increased by 31% compared to 2016, bringing the total to 1500.

Complete machining of very small parts to a high degree of precision
Starrag will be joining the exhibitors at the SNIEC exhibition space. The Swiss company will be presenting its hightech production engineering in doubledecker fashion – the 120-m² stand with a two-story, 40-m² construction has been designed to spark some in-depth discussions with clients. And there is no shortage of topics to cover thanks to technology such as the Bumotec s181, a five-axis turn-mill centre that has already proven its worth when it comes to complete machining of complex and high-precision parts for the fields of medical technology, watchmaking and precision mechanics.

The horizontal five-axis machining centre Heckert 500 X5 is designed for use with much larger cubic workpieces weighing max. 1000 kg. In the temperature-controlled version, Starrag is showcasing the column and spindle box of this machine as a high-precision kit, along with the corresponding work pieces for automotive engineering.

The Heckert 500 X5 and the Bumotec s181 are examples of Starrag’s implementation of its claim Engineering precisely what you value, as users receive exactly what they need to meet their cutting requirements.

A particularly apt example of this claim is a very large high-tech project that provided a prominent Chinese customer with a very exclusive and tailor-made ”Industry 4.0” solution. With a completion date of summer 2019, Starrag is building one of the most productive and efficient plants in the world for complete machining of aluminium structural components at Chengdu Aerospace‘s aircraft factory. Starrag will be presenting the blueprint for similar ”Industry 4.0” solutions in Shanghai.

With its Starrag Integrated Production System (IPS) concept, the company is able to reliably implement individual, digitised production solutions that are essentially available off the peg. The stand-out feature of this concept is the high level of vertical integration. The company employs not just its own production technology, but also cell controller technology developed in-house. In Shanghai, Starrag also aims to communicate to trade fair visitors that it can also meet all typical customer requirements, such as higher productivity, greater safety and increased growth, with its digitised production solutions.

Starrag now operates branches in Beijing and Shanghai, with over 50 highly trained and highly motivated employees working in the areas of sales, sales support, operation and customer service. The branches in China supply products and services to customers in China and throughout Asia.

For more details and information, interested parties in Shanghai can visit the Starrag stand N1-A201 at the CCMT 2018 from 9 – 13 April.
