Opening 3 international exhibitions in mechanical industry

Metalex Exhibition “Metalex Vietnam”, exhibition of welding and cutting field “Welding Vietnam” and Robot Exhibition “Robot X HCM” simultaneously opened in Ho Chi Minh City.

International exhibition of machine tools and metalworking solutions “Metalex Vietnam 2019” with the theme “Growth and outstanding progress” took place from 10 – 12/10 at the Center of Fair and Exhibition Saigon (SECC), district 7, Ho Chi Minh City. Along with that, two other exhibitions, including “Welding Vietnam 2019” focusing on the latest technologies – equipment in the field of cutting welding and “Robot X HCM” introducing many modern industrial robot models also opened. at the same location. The event brings together more than 500 brands from over 25 countries and territories, with 7 international pavilions from Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, China, Thailand and India.

The event is an opportunity for Vietnamese companies to find potential partners, and also access to many types of mechanical machines, welding technology or modern industrial robots. According to the organizers, in the first 2 days, 3 exhibitions attracted 10,000 participants.

Mr. Vu Trong Tai – General Director of Reed Tradex Vietnam, the organizer of the exhibition, said that Vietnam is increasingly promoted in the global supply chain, especially when the trade war lasts. On the positive side, this helps with a positive economic outlook, with a 6.6% -6.8% growth forecast for this year. However, it also creates many challenges for Vietnamese manufacturers to improve their competitiveness to become the official supplier of global corporations.

“The demand for automation machines and production standards is getting more and more advanced. This is a challenge for local manufacturers, requiring them to keep up to date with the latest technologies and solutions to ensure that they are fully equipped.” do not miss the opportunity is ripe, “Mr. Tai shared.

Firstly held more than 10 years ago, Metalex Vietnam is a place for Vietnamese manufacturers to acquire the latest technology and knowledge about mechanical processing. This is also the foundation for global technology suppliers to demonstrate advanced machines and share practical solutions to help businesses optimize production capacity.

“We noted the growing interest from exhibitors at home and abroad to Metalex. This year alone, the scale of participating companies increased by about 30% from last year,” Tai said. more.

According to Mr. Adhip Mitra – Secretary General of the Indian Council for Exporting Technical Exports – EEPC India, the leader of the Indian pavilion (national partner of Metalex Vietnam 2019) among ASEAN countries, Vietnam closely related culturally and economically to India, as well as playing an important role in developing cooperative relationships with ASEAN countries of India. In the period of 2018-2019, the total turnover between the two countries reached US $ 13.66 billion, an increase of 6.76% compared to 2017-2018.

At this year’s exhibition, India introduced many advancements. Ministry of Industry and Trade excelled in manufacturing and mechanical processing to Vietnamese industry in particular and Southeast Asia in general.

The highlight of the exhibition is virtual reality welding, which gives visitors the opportunity to experience welding techniques and technologies. Lincoln Electric’s VRTEX welding simulation technology from Weldtec in the Q04 area provides participants with authentic experiences from sound, motion, to “getting points” through an automated software. The plus point of virtual reality welding training is that it does not cause sparks, does not emit smoke, and set the criterion “anyone can weld”. Welding technology demonstrations from world-class brands will also take place every day of the event from international brands such as T-Drill, Polysoude and EWM. All are intended to provide industrialists with new and useful solutions, contributing to increasing the value of products.

In addition, the Tokyo SME Support Center’s business networking workshop (Tokyo SME Support Center) promises to attract the participation of visitors from local companies seeking cooperation. Collaborate with Japanese businesses to lay the ground for participating in global supply chains. This is a bridge for Vietnamese suppliers and buyers from the land of cherry blossoms.

The “Koma Taisen” spinning performance is also returning at Metalex Vietnam 2019. Small and medium-sized manufacturers will demonstrate their custom-made rotors with unique metal machining designs and techniques. The two highest-ranking teams will travel to Yokohama, Japan to participate in the world championship competition in February 2020.
