METALEX 2018, a metalworking technology platform, has launched in Thailand with 9 international pavilions and 3,300 brands from 50 countries participating in the event. With a theme of “The Metalworking Metropolis”, the event is looking to develop itself as the one-stop centre for the latest technologies, solutions and know how related to metalworking in ASEAN. Additionally, by functioning as a portal for participants to learn more about the tools and partnerships for their industry 4.0 journey, the event is seeking to expand Thailand’s industrial sector towards a global standard and reach.
As commented by Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha, “[Metalex] has been essential to the industrial development of many economies, and the sharing of innovative technologies and knowledge that keep many industries thriving, and therefore, many communities [have been] exposed to continued opportunities for growth and participation in the global market.”
Furthermore, as the successful integration into industry 4.0 and AI becomes increasingly indispensable for success in modern metalworking, the event has developed a segment on robotics technologies named “ROBOTX”, which is the first edition of ASEAN’s most complete suite of industrial robots. Featuring over 20 global brands as well as their associated robotics technology, this segment will be at the “ROBOTX HALL”, BITEC, from 21 to 24 November 2018 and will be co-located with METALEX 2018.
