Chinaplas is an international event where leading companies compete in "close combat", and is also the best-organized trade fair. As an exhibitor of extrusion equipment, we largely benefit here every year. I saw many old customers at the show and also made some new ones. This is a very good platform on which Battenfeld-Cincinnati has had a complete success. We will come again in 2020.

Through advance online and offline promotion by the organizer, we received many inquiries and concerns from potential customers on site. We look forward to more extensive and close cooperation with Adsale in the future to help the plastic printing and processing industry solve their problems associated with flexible production, fast delivery, and small batch-scale production.
