Taiwan’s trade show Timtos x TMTS 2022 all set for February 2022

Timtos x TMTS 2022, Taiwan’s largest co-branded machine tool show, will be held at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Centre, from 21 to 26 February, 2022.

Organisers are expecting a total of 900+ exhibitors to pack the exhibition halls with 5 200 booths. Notably, it will be not only the largest trade show in Taiwan since the outbreak of the pandemic, but one of the most significant events for the global machine tool industry in early 2022.

In an international press conference for Timtos x TMTS 2022, the organisers, James C. F. Huang, chairman of TAITRA, Larry Wei, chairman of TAMI and Wen-Hsien Hsu, chairman of TMBA sat side by side with two industry giants, Jimmy Chu, chairman of Fair Friend Group and Jui-Hsiung Yen, chairman of TTGroup, making an insightful panel discussion on the theme – ‘Impacts, Challenges and Opportunities for Global Machine Tool Industry after The Pandemic’.

Chairman Huang of TAITRA said that Taiwan plays a crucial role in supporting the global machine tool supply chain, as Taiwan is renowned for its customisation and innovation.

What’s more, Taiwan’s expertise in communications and information technology enable Taiwan machine tool manufacturers to develop the best solutions for end users around the world. Huang also pointed out the Timtos x TMTS show will be showcasing a wide array of R&D outputs of high profile manufacturing from the Taiwan team.

TAMI Chairman Wei added the previous supply chain has been fundamentally changed since the global pandemic has created an opportunity for Taiwan players to explore new businesses in the post-pandemic era.

Meanwhile, Chairman Hsu, TMBA, encouraged continuous progression toward intelligent manufacturing, SaaS and interface unity. The co-branded event, TIMTS x TMTS 2022, will be another eye-catcher, right after Taiwan machine tool industry’s outstanding performance in helping fight against the pandemic with great success last year.

The emerging industries, for example, electric vehicles have caused great impacts on the global machine tool supply chain to date. Jimmy Chu, chairman of Fair Friend Group and Jui-Hsiung Yen, chairman of TTGroup shared options and experiences about enterprise transformation in the wake of such opportunities and challenges, which fully demonstrated Taiwan companies’ resilience and flexibility when dealing with the supply chain issues.

Aside from Fair Friend Group and TTGroup, key exhibitors include HIWIN, PMI, Victor Taichung, YLM, Shinbu, KFO, Chmer, Fanuc, Mazak, You Ji, Takisawa, YCM, Trumpf, Delta, Mitsubishi, and Siemens.

The machinery industry has become Taiwan’s third trillion-dollar industry, second to the semiconductor and panel industries. Total exports of Taiwan machine tools from January to October this year reached US$2,245 billion, a phenomenal increase by 27.6% over the same period last year. With increasing COVID-19 vaccination rates and growing demands, it is expected that Taiwan machine tool industry exports will hit a new record in the next few months.

In response to border control, Timtos x TMTS 2022 will launch a line-up of online services and activities in conjunction with the physical exhibition, including On-site Guide for Online Visitors, Live Tour @ Showground, Live Stage for product launches, virtual display, and online 1-on-1 procurement meetings.
