     2018 Arc Cup International Welding Competition, consisting of the Fifth International Robot Welding, which held in Dongguan, Guangdong, and the Second International Welding Technology Competition and the Sixth International Welding Skills Competition, would be a fierce competition.
     Started from 2010, it has successfully held five sessions of the Arc Cup International Welding Competition and has currently been the associated events of the International Institute of Welding. Up to now, it has been more than 1000 domestic and international welding talents communicated and exchanged best practice by this platform. The achievements of the Competition have been highly recognized by the international community, known as the "World Arc Cup", and become one of the most influential international welding competitions.

image015

    It has significant importance of this Competition.
    Firstly, the participation range of competition is wide and the participation level of the skilled talents is high.
    Almost all of the international competitors of the Arc Cup International Welding Competition are the national winners of their countries. Meanwhile, most of the domestic competitors are selected from the central enterprise or the universities through different kinds of selection.

image018

    Secondly, it is an effective international skill training platform.
    The Arc Cup International Welding Competition is a fabulous feast for the talents in the welding industry from different countries to learn from each other about the welding skill, to arouse the enthusiasm of the welders to explore welding technology and the enthusiasm to study welding skills.    Moreover, it has also trained a large number of skilled people who can meet the international engineering requirements, and technical talents who are familiar with the international technical standards. The winners from the Competition will speed up to adapt to the international environment with the international skilled talents, in order to solve the problem of the local talents training of the Chinese enterprises, promote the harmonious and unified national skill standards. We would make the skill talented person as the forerunner of the Belt & Road area, paving the way for the construction along the Belt & Road countries.
    Thirdly, The Arc Cup International Welding Competition is the opening competition of the 2018 Belt & Road and BRICS Skills Development and Technology Innovation Competition, will also become the cornerstone of the BRICS skill development and then become a worldly skill development platform.
    2018 Belt & Road and BRICS Skills Development and Technology Innovation Competition is one of the political, economic and cultural exchanges between Belt & Road and BRICS countries and an important long-term mechanism for BRICS cooperation. After 2018 Arc Cup International Welding Competition, there will be 16 other competition projects going to be held respectively in Mongolia, Shandong, Guangdong, Zhejiang, Liaoning, Hebei, Beijing and Yunnan for china division. It is expected to have ten thousand people to participate in the Competition. Later, winners will go to Russia and South Africa for the final competition.
