German High Tech in Metal Working

ASEAN region in focus of German machine tool industry

Around 50 companies to present themselves at the sector event in Thailand

Under the motto "German High Tech in Metal Working", around 50 German
companies will present themselves at Metalex, the largest metal-working trade fair
in the ASEAN region. Top German companies such as Alfred H. Schütte GmbH &
Co. KG, Gebr. Heller Maschinenfabrik GmbH, Gühring KG, MAPAL Fabrik für
Präzisionswerkzeuge Dr. Kress KG and Siemens AG will take part in the sector
event from 20 – 23 November 2019. Dr. Wilfried Schäfer, Director of the VDW
(German Machine Tool Builders' Association), says: "Thailand is the most
important market for the machine tool industry in the ASEAN region, with great
potential for production technology. There is keen competition in the market,
especially from Japanese companies. So we are all the more delighted that
Germany is the partner for Metalex, and our firms will be able to present their
innovative potential there with a sector event."

For Exhibitor President Andrew Parkin, Gebr. Heller Maschinenfabrik GmbH, the
great interest on the part of German companies in the south-east Asian market is
no coincidence: "Metalex provides the numerous exhibitors with the opportunity
to meet both competitors and potential customers at an event. Thailand and
south-east Asia are often underestimated with regard to their market potential.
However, the markets in south-east Asia continue to develop positively in
accordance with our expectations, and will increase in importance for globally
active machinery manufacturers also in the future."

Special show on umati to present German cutting-edge technology

The nomination of Germany as partner country at Metalex underlines the
significance of German companies for the worldwide machine tool and machine
construction industries. Exhibitor President Andrew Parkin confirms: "The quality
seal "Made in Germany" still carries great weight in the region of south-east Asia.
For us and the many visitors, this sector event is an outstanding platform for
discussing current manufacturing requirements, developments and trends, and for
laying the foundations for investments. We expect to make new contacts and thus
develop business opportunities in Thailand and south-east Asia."

Within the framework of the sector event, the special show umati will present the
future of the industry.
umati (universal machine tool interface) is a universal interface that can integrate
machine tools and plants safely, seamlessly and effortlessly into customer- and
user-specific IT eco-systems. This standard will not apply only in Germany, but will be available for users around the world. umati is an initiative of the VDW and 17
project partners, of whom the founding members CHIRON-WERKE GmbH & Co.
KG, Gebr. Heller Maschinenfabrik GmbH, GROB-WERKE GmbH & Co. KG and
Siemens AG will be taking part in the special show in Thailand.
