PTC ASIA 2023: Where Technology is Made to Move


For more than 30 years, the Power Transmission and Fluid Power associations within the Mechanical Engineering Industry Association (VDMA) have supported PTC ASIA in Shanghai as a showcase for the industry in China and the wider Asia-Pacific region.


Explore the products and solutions of power transmission and fluid power. This is where mechanical precision and technological sophistication come together to move machines and systems. At PTC Asia you will have the opportunity to explore everything from electric drives to hydraulics and pneumatics.

German manufacturers of power transmission and control and fluid power technologies will be exhibiting at the German Pavilion in Hall E5.


Digital transformation has affected all sectors of the economy in recent years. Industrie 4.0 technologies are a revolutionary development in the field of power transmission and fluid power at a time when companies are increasingly looking to increase efficiency, optimise costs and find innovative solutions.

Climate protection and resource efficiency, which require cutting-edge technologies as solutions, are additional issues. Here, too, power transmission technology and fluid power are leading the way. This enables us to contribute to combining economy and ecology in the world and especially in the world's largest market, China.


As a promoter of Industrie 4.0 and sustainability, VDMA is proud to announce the 3rd edition of the "Smart and Sustainable Solutions Forum", organised by VDMA (Mechanical Engineering Industry Association) together with Hannover Milano Fairs Shanghai.
The presentations will showcase best practices and leading innovations in fluid power 4.0, drive-for-green, sustainability and digitalisation. They will also cover connectivity and interoperability in the context of umati, based on established industry standards such as OPC UA.


My best wishes to all exhibitors and visitors for a successful PTC Asia 2023 – the show where technology is in motion.
