Green Connection & Intelligent Manufacture Forum is a multi-disciplinary annual summit which focuses on welding and other technical trends in the field of intelligent manufacture. The forum is hosted by Hua Guang Advanced Welding Materials Co., Ltd alongside with other major institutes of the welding industry, such us the Chinese Welding Society. This event has been hosted every year in Hangzhou, China since 2016.
Previously, no such international summit is available in China's welding industry. Seeing the opportunity, Hua Guang, as an industry leader has decided to create this platform which connects Chinese welding professionals to the outside world.
Guests of this conference include professionals of both the academic and commercial fields. It serves as a bridge to facilitate communication between the two groups.
The summit has a unique theme each year. In 2018, the main topics of the summit are production automation and the role of data science and artificial intelligence in materials R&D. While in the year before, the forum focused on the development of environmental friendly materials and green manufacture processes.
