The tours are classified into different topical industry themes, ranging from metrology, 3D printing technology to metal-forming machine technology.

Metrology Tour

The metrology tour will lead visitors through different exhibition stands where they can have access to sophisticated metrology solutions, and learn how these innovative technologies are affecting the global metrology landscape.

3D Printing Technology Tour

In recognition of the rising awareness and industry adoption of 3D printing, the 3D printing technology tour will guide visitors on the state-of-the-art developments in additive manufacturing, during which they are enabled to explore the capabilities and applications of 3D printing, as well as to learn how it is being utilized in the manufacturing processes.

Metal-forming Machining Technology Tour

Major components manufacturers and service providers will gather at this technology-themed tour to provide participants with an interactive and immersive experience with the latest equipment in the metal forming industry, from metal cutting, material handling to safety technology.

Established platform for knowledge exchange

Held alongside MTV2017 will be a full roster of technology conferences, seminars and workshops delving into the latest trends and pertinent issues affecting the evolving manufacturing sector. These conferences gather a unique and international mix of inspiring thought leaders, technological experts and industry professionals from across the region.

Industry 4.0 and its application into the manufacturing processes will be discussed at the seminars brought by Lean Six Sigma Network and Multi Engineering Solutions Laboratory (MES LAB). Featuring an exciting line up of speakers from nationally renowned organizations such as the Saigon Hi-Tech Park and Ho Chi Minh City Association of Mechanical Engineering, delegates will gain a deeper understanding on the impact of Industry 4.0 and advanced manufacturing.

Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) will be hosting an introductory seminar entitled “Taiwan Machine Tools Industry - Shaping the World”. The seminar will feature a wide selection of Taiwanese technologies and products, offering up-close, unique interactions with home-grown industry leaders, technical experts and business peers. Notable participating companies in the seminar include: Tong-Tai, Yeong Chin, Palmary and Hiwin.

Mr. Tang Ming Hui, Director, Taiwan Trade Center, Representative Office in Ho Chi Minh City shared, “This seminar of TAITRA is aimed to introduce the development of Taiwan’s machine tool industry, as well as to assist Taiwanese exhibitors to promote their products and attract more potential buyers. Vietnamese manufacturers will have closer access to Taiwanese innovations, and the Taiwan-Vietnam economic and trade relationship will be strengthened afterwards,”

“MTA VIETNAM has benefited all parties involved in the manufacturing value chain as it brings everything related to the industry under one single venue. We have been participating in this dedicated event for years and it is, without a doubt, an ideal platform to make business happen,” he also added.
