Annual Competition Honors Designers Who Offer Solutions That Advance Sustainable Development In Construction Machinery Industry
XCMG, China’s leading construction machinery manufacturer, is now accepting applications for the second XCMG Cup Green Innovation Design Competition (“XCMG Cup”), in which entrants submit design concepts that create efficiencies in the manufacturing or operation of heavy construction equipment. Students and other interested parties from around the world are welcome to upload their designs online now until Dec. 1st.
Launched in 2016 and hosted on XCMG-Cloud, an industrial data and information hub that is a joint project with Aliyun, the focus of this year’s competition is finding new energy solutions for the R&D of hoisting and excavating machines. Submissions will be judged by a panel of leading experts from the areas of mechanical engineering, smart manufacturing, industrial design and more. Winners will have the chance to receive investment from XCMG and see their designs to become reality.
“We are excited to once again see innovative designs from around the world,” said Xiaohui Xu, GM Assistant of XCMG. “The first XCMG Cup was a resounding success and we look forward to evaluating new concepts that will help us enhance the convergence of industrial design and reduce our impact on the environment.”
“College students often think very actively and creatively, so the XCMG Cup is a great platform for students to offer solutions to some of the problems of the industry with their excellent ideas. The win-win opportunity that this competition offers will also enable the company to advance manufacturing techniques for the entire industry,” said Li Wei, Professor at the School of Mechatronic Engineering and Director of the Innovative Training Center at the China University of Mining and Technology (CUMT).
The XCMG Cup is one of XCMG’s 14 precisely positioned global public welfare projects that focus on green and environmentally-friendly technologies and encourage young talent to push forward the green and sustainable development of the industry.
