Machines show unique skills at exhibition fair
From September 6 to 9, the 19th China (International) Machinery & Electronic Products Fair was held at the Wuhan International Expo Center. The exhibition displayed technologies and products consisting of automation, robotics, 3D printing and automobile equipment manufacturing.
In an exhibition booth, there were several "paper-cutting" patterns such as a Chinese character 福 (fu). These are not made with papers and scissors and but stainless-steel plates and lasers. Their staff offered to print the four Chinese characters "
长江日报 (Changjiang Daily)" for our reporters. They input the four characters in a computer, then clicked start, and the tool head of the machine clearly carved the characters within 20 seconds.
