The 1st Vietnam International Machinery Fair

https://korean-machinery.com///inquiry

The 1st VIMAF is anticipated to play a role as a strategic marketing platform to lead diversification of the general machinery export markets.

 

The 1st Vietnam International Machinery Fair (VIMAF) will be held at the SECC Exhibition Center in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, from December 12 (Wed.) to 14 (Fri.). It is expected to act as a strategic marketing platform to lead diversification of the general machinery export markets. Three hundred booths (4,400m²) of a total of 100 companies worldwide will be installed and manned.
Domestic and overseas exhibitors will display metal working and mold related equipment, automated instruments, construction and mining machinery, plant apparatus, textile machinery, farming machinery, rubber plastic, tools, hydropneumatic equipment, general industrial machinery, parts, materials, etc. in this fair.
This fair is hosted by the Korea Association of Machinery Industry (KOAMI) and COEX and supported by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy and KOTRA in Korea and by the Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade and Vietnamese Association of Machinery Industry in Vietnam.
In this fair, export consultation meetings will be held in the seminar room of the exhibition center from December 13 (Thu.) to 14 (Fri.) for Korean participants and Vietnamese buyers/agencies. In these export consultation meetings, 1:1 consultations will take place. Furthermore, a specialized conference hosted by the Ho Chi Minh City Office of the Korea Institute of Industrial Technology will be held from December 12 (Wed.) to 13 (Thu.).
There are many driving forces behind this 1st VIMAF. It is being promoted amidst Vietnam’s rise as the most powerful alternative to post-China since China has become a less attractive destination for investment due to high wages and costs and declining economic growth. While foreign investment enterprises keep investing more in the Vietnamese manufacturing industry, their parts and materials procurement rate is under 30%. They are desperately in need of higher-value added by attracting investment in the entire manufacturing industry. Therefore, the Vietnamese government is taking active steps for development of the parts/materials industry to improve the nation’s industrial competitiveness. Vietnamese government’s policy to develop the parts/materials industry works as a green light for Korean manufacturing companies including the machinery industry and the electricity/electronics industry to enter the Vietnam market.


Currently, general machinery export of South Korea is heavily weighted toward China and the United States. So, there is an urgent need to diversify export markets and to establish a strategic marketing platform in new machinery markets in Southeast Asia. Accordingly, the timing of this fair is very opportune. The machinery industry is the basis of national competitiveness and a core industry of the manufacturing industry which has a significant front and back relating effect.
For these reasons, it is expected that dominating promising new markets, such as Vietnam for instance, in advance will surely help expand the basis for Korean small-and medium-sized enterprises’ advances into foreign markets.
While South Korean companies are losing ground in the global markets due to China and America’s protectionism and strengthened support for their own companies, this fair will not only be a proper response to this challenging environment, but also give them added impetus to conquer other markets.
VIMAF will assist Korean companies to combat this recently hardening commercial pressure by the G2 and to maximize export potential by expanding the Korean machinery export market to ASEAN ― with Vietnam as a base ― in the long-term. Thus, this fair is expected to raise Korea’s economic growth and global competitiveness.

SIMTOS 2018

https://korean-machinery.com///inquiry

As many as 1,222 companies from 35 countries have showcased products keeping pace with the rapidly changing manufacturing environment.

This year’s exhibition was meaningful as the numbers of visitors that had been sluggish due to the recession in the manufacturing industry in recent years has turned into a recovery and the exhibition regained its stature of accommodating 100,000 visitors again in four years. SIMTOS 2018 was attended by approximately 103,000 visitors, which was an increase of 5.4% compared to last year.
Prominent visitors to SIMTOS 2018 included buyers from those emerging demand regions such as Southeast Asia and Eastern Europe whose markets are difficult for Korean companies to access. A buyer from Oman remarked, “Since we have used Korean machine tools, I have high confidence in Korean products. I believe that they are price-competitive and the quality is as high as any machine tools from advanced countries. Through this visit to SIMTOS, we hope to supply excellent Korean products to the Oman market.”
Behind such active participation of foreign buyers with high purchasing-power lies the effort of the Korea Machine Tool Manufacturers’ Association (KOMMA), the organizer of SIMTOS, to invite buyers from months before the exhibition. Through Matchmaking4U, a matching program between participating suppliers and buyers that has been verified over a long time, KOMMA managed the targeted foreign buyers from the time of the exhibition to on-site consultation during the fair. A large number of buyers’ conferences held in SIMTOS has led to actual contracts, thus directly contributing to the profit generation of exhibitors.


The exhibition concept of many companies participating in this event held in the winds of change of the “4th Industrial Revolution” featured primarily the 4th Industrial Revolution and Smart Factory. Exhibits varied from equipment integrated with ICT technology to automation parts, measurement systems, and tool management systems.
In particular, the Special Exhibition Hall for the 4th Industrial Revolution, opened for the first time this year, attracting attention by demonstrating trial performances centered on processing equipment and suggested ways to build more realistic smart factories. One visitor remarked, “Although the smart factory has been controversial for a long time, I still consider that most talks are not beyond conceptualization. Taking a look around at this exhibition, however, it dawned on me how SMEs need to approach smart factory construction.”
While SMEs’ interest in factory automation is increasing more sharply than ever before in line with the policy issues such as rising minimum wages and shortening working hours, the global equipment manufacturers participating in SIMTOS 2018 largely showcased compact automation and complex solutions. Major machine tool manufacturers such as Doosan Machine Tools, DMG Mori, Yamazaki Mazak, Hyundai Wia, and Hwacheon have exhibited a large number of products using automation applications such as Gantry robots and multi-pallet systems, attracting keen attention from the visitors.
Suppliers of automated cutting equipment such as Bystronic, AMADA Korea, H. K., J. Trump GmbH Korea introduced automation and complex solutions including folding machine automation models for removable robot system and modular multifunction equipment that can implement various functions by attaching a module to a punching machine.
Other exhibits included numerous products released in response to the increased demand for processing equipment for difficult-to-cut materials such as titanium, carbon fiber composite materials, and nickel alloys. In addition, considerable attention was paid to highperformance and high-stiffness equipment as well as machining simulation software to prevent unnecessary cost and reduce time wastage by minimizing errors while processing high-cost difficult-to-cut materials.
SIMTOS 2018 has provided more than 30 events such as the 4th Industrial Revolution Conference and the CAD/ CAM Conference and a variety of accompanying events including a photo zone, stamp tour, and technical tour, offering abundant attractions and entertainment.
