The industrial sector in Thailand has a potential to grow steadily, as expressed by Mr. Yoshiyuki Miyagawa, Managing Director of Okuma Techno (Thailand) Co., Ltd., a leading provider of high-quality machine tools that has been recognized by many factories in Thailand and globally, as well as a long-time exhibitor of METALEX. He believes in the opportunities and potential Thailand’s industrial sector has to offer.

“We think the automotive industry in Thailand this year will increasingly transition to become a center for EV production. In the manufacturing sector, the emphasis will be on saving labor costs and improve efficiency through automation by incorporating more robots and Functional Movement System (FMS) into the production line. Those who have previously used separate machines for turning, machining, and grinding will increasingly turn to machining centers that can process different parts in a single unit. Okuma has dedicated our effort to studying and gathering these requirements to present suitable options to manufacturers.”

One of the platforms Okuma has chosen to introduce the brand’s machine tools and services to potential customers is “METALEX,” the number-one machine tools and metalworking exhibition serving ASEAN. This is the only event that Okuma has participated in this region for over thirty years.
“At METALEX, we are planning to introduce products and services that will help industrialists take their productivity to another level. The highlight will be the powerful, high-performance MU-400VⅢ machining center. It is perfect for making molds for automotive parts, medical parts, aerospace parts and a variety of other industrial parts. 
We also have user-friendly robot systems that do not require special skills to operate, machinery for machining parts that improves productivity while incorporating advanced production steps to support every existing industry.

“We would be delighted to provide advice on how to use our machines or how to incorporate them in your factories to raise your efficiency. See you at METALEX from 20-23 November 2024.”
