Bolster your business strength in ASEAN’s metalworking hub at “METALEX 2018.” This is the event that will connect trading opportunities with wide-ranging networks of industrialists from throughout the region. Let’s drive solutions 4.0 forward through the latest technologies and machinery while establishing a strong base for your business!  

Many users in Thailand have had positive experiences with automation of machine tools in simple applications over the past years. Convinced of the process reliability of these systems, the trend today is going toward the direction of highly developed automation solutions. The International Federation of Robotics (IFR) had conducted a survey and disclosed that the countries with the highest robot density in ASEAN are Singapore, followed by Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines. Therefore, it is not a far-fetched estimation that Thailand is rapidly becoming a leader in ASEAN robotics, both on the research forefront and also with applied robotics for industry.

“We are confident in METALEX because the show gives us real trade opportunities where solution providers meet target buyers, not just an exhibiting space. So far, we have been bringing exhibitors from Japan to join METALEX for more than 20 years already, and the feedback from the ASEAN market has been so positive that the number of our participants have increased rapidly every year. For the 2018 edition, we are bringing 125 companies from 12 government bodies including Gifu, Ibaraki, JETRO, Nagano, Nagaoka, Ota City Industrial Promotion Organization, Sagamihara, Sakai, Shimane, Tokushima, Tokyo SMEs and Yamaguchi, covering the space of more than 1,000 sq.m. of the show floor. They are bringing with them the latest technologies from Japan and are looking forward to meet new business partners from Thailand and ASEAN. Our goal is to continue our participation and increase the number of our exhibitors for the future editions.”

“We are interested in METALEX because we are looking for new sourcing suppliers which there are not many available with the high-technologies we want. Another reason is because this show helps us gain new ideas for production line improvement.”
