International Metalworking News for Asia
Technology is another key driver of progress and innovation, as it can improve our lives, productivity, and efficiency. Technology can also help us address some of the biggest challenges the manufacturing industry is facing. In this issue of International Metalworking News for Asia, we explore different metalworking solutions that can create value, as well as protect the planet and its resources.
Metalworking companies that operate internationally are rare in Vietnam. But SAVIMEC is one of them. Within just a few years, managing director and owner Ngo Sach Vinh has developed the company into a modern manufacturer of high-end products. With the TruLaser Tube 5000 fiber, it is entering the world of laser tube cutting and expanding its technological edge even further. Find out more when you read, Lasers & Welding section.
The Machine Tools section presents hybrid technology enabling energy efficient heat transfer in machining centres. Here, you will find that machining with machine tools generates heat in various parts of the equipment due to the high power involved, the friction related to the high mechanical forces applied together with the high rotation speed of the tools.
The demands on manufacturers can be summed up as: ‘produce innovative and higher quality products, more quickly and in less time.’Add sustainability initiatives into the mix, and it becomes clear that manufacturers in all sectors must apply comprehensive strategies to overcome these obstacles while staying ahead of the competition. Staffan Lundström, product manager and application specialist for turning at the cutting tool specialist Sandvik Coromant, explains how innovative Y-axis turning can overcome delays and support faster production.
Finally, discover how Schuler’s sheet metal forming lines are almost as diverse as the parts produced on them. They range from the larger-than-man-sized C-frame press for packaging to press lines filling factory halls that form car doors and engine hoods, among other things. You can read this in the Bending & Forming section.
We hope that this issue of the magazine will inspire you to make smart decisions by investing in technologies that have the potential to generate income or appreciation over time.
