Feature Areas to Bring Technologies to Life

Aside from the Capabilities Hub which drew strong interest from trade visitors, this upcoming edition will unveil a brand new feature, the Optical Engineering Focus Area.

Capabilities Hub
The Capabilities Hub gathers local parts and component manufacturers and service providers to highlight their manufacturing competencies in the high-value sectors of Oil & Gas, Medical Technology, Aerospace and Complex Equipment. A collaborative effort with the Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech), this area will connect local and overseas manufacturers and enhance their ties through networking and collaboration.

To-date, exhibition stalwarts such as A&ONE Precision Engineering, ACP Metal Finishing, CEI Contract Manufacturing, Eratech, Fujicon Engineering, Meiban Group, Microcast, Nanotechnology Manufacturing, Onn Wah Precision Machining, PCI, Shine Precision Engineering, SolidMicron Technologies and ST Kinetics Integrated Engineering, have confirmed their participation in this space.

Spotlight on 3D Printing
Analysts have forecast that the global 3D printing market will reach US$8.6 billion by 2020, with a CAGR of 20.6 per cent from 2014 to 2020. The growth is expected to come from increasing demand for the quick and more efficient manufacturing of complexly designed objects using a wide variety of materials.

Additive manufacturing (AM), commonly known as 3D printing, is now widely adopted across sectors from automotive to medical and even in aerospace. Currently, the U.S. is the largest market in both production and consumption. In light of this trend, several Singapore-based and home grown companies will be highlighting 3D printing technologies and solutions at the event.

Creatz3D, DKSH Technology, Eye-2-Eye Communications and FreeForm Solution will be showcasing 3D printers from brands such as Stratasys — one of the world’s most established manufacturers of 3D printing equipment and materials, 3D Systems and Envisiontec.

In addition, MTA2015 will be staging 3D Printing Technology Tours, to offer attendees an exclusive opportunity to see the technology in action through live demonstrations conducted by participating companies. Live demonstrations will be conducted by brands such as 3D Systems, Arcam AB, EnvisionTEC, Renishaw and Stratasys.

MTA2015: High Calibre Manufacturing Showcase

As manufacturing processes become more sophisticated and requirements for advanced research and development grow, MTA2015 is well-placed to provide the links between major industry players and suppliers across the value chain. Beyond the capabilities hub, the exhibition will also unveil global manufacturing bigwigs who will be demonstrating their latest portfolio of quality machine solutions specially designed for companies across the supply chain.

Dr. Moh Chong Tau, CEO of Makino Asia, a long-time supporter of MTA said, “The manufacturing landscape in Singapore is changing, and I am very glad to see that events such as MTA, that are very important to our industry, are also evolving in order to keep up with the changing times. There is a very high quality of visitors at the 2013 show and we have managed to sell seven machines and generate 40 to 60 promising leads. We will definitely be back for MTA2015.”

Visitors will not only be spoilt for choice, but will be in the prime position to expand their business networks and form business partnerships. At MTA2013, Mr. Melvin Ng, General Manager at Hunting Energy Services International (Singapore) said, “I have been coming to MTA for years and it has been a great platform for me to see the latest developments in the machinery industry, to witness product demonstrations, and to widen my network of business associates. It has also been a great way to explore business ideas and opportunities.”

Echoing his sentiments was Mr. Megat Syaiful Bahari, General Manager at TRR Heritage, Malaysia: “We are a trading company and also supply machines to the government sector for schools. Made some good contacts at MTA2011 and won some education contracts since. I came to shop for new machines and to establish new contacts for different brands especially for tooling, sensor and RFID. I have found some good prospects in Haas Automation, Ichi Seiki and KS Tools. My key objectives are met and the targets are fulfilled.”

MetrologyAsia2015: Serving Industry’s Demands for Precise Measurements

MetrologyAsia2015, an area dedicated to metrology equipment, will cast a spotlight on companies specialising in high-end test and measurement apparatuses and systems. Attendees will be exposed to the latest in metrology technology and equipment to meet their precision measuring needs.

The last edition of MTA saw participation from metrology bigwigs such as Blum Production Metrology, Carl Zeiss, Hexagon Metrology Asia Pacific, Jenoptik South East Asia, Mitutoyo Asia Pacific, Optical Gaging, Renishaw (Singapore) and Wenzel Asia.

Knowledge Sharing and Discussions at MTA2015

This edition of MTA2015 will also see the launch of “Future Factories & Manufacturing Asia”, a half-day focused technical conference. The session will highlight the trends and techniques in smart manufacturing and its impact on Asian manufacturers.

icOPEN, now known as the International Conference on Optical and Photonic Engineering, and the PE COI Annual Conference will also return. These two conferences will feature technical and industry experts giving their insights on the latest trends and issues facing the precision engineering industry.

“Manufacturing in the Asian region is no longer simply supplying the labour to make many of the products we use today. It has evolved with technological advances and manufacturers and suppliers are now looking at how to create and add value to their manufacturing processes,” says Mr. William Lim, Project Director at Singapore Exhibition Services, organiser of MTA2015.

“MTA has been moving in tandem with industry trends and the addition of new feature areas will not only provide a premier sourcing platform of the latest state-of-the-art precision engineering technologies and solutions, it will also create a comprehensive and holistic experience for attendees,” he adds.

MTA2015 will incorporate iAutomation2015, MetalAsia2015, Outsource&SubCon2015 and ToolTec2015, specialised industry events that cater to the individual needs of Asia’s manufacturing industry.
