MTA2013 Supports Singapore’s Position as Asian Hub of Choice for Global Aerospace Manufacturers
Asia's most important precision engineering trade event provides a pivotal business platform for companies from the international aerospace industry
Singapore, Dec 17, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - Asia's aviation industry has witnessed strong growth in recent years, and is predicted to progress even more in the future. The opening of the Rolls Royce facility in Singapore earlier in February this year is testament to the growing confidence manufacturing veterans have in Asia's capabilities to manufacturing high-quality parts. With the delivery of the first Singapore-made Trent aero engine for Airbus A380 on 28 November 2012, it further seals Singapore's reputation as Asia's Aviation Hub.
In tandem with this industry trend, MTA2013, returning to the exhibition halls at Singapore Expo from 9 to 12 April next year, is geared to impress industry visitors by unveiling of a specialised group of companies housed within the Capabilities Hub.
Best-of-breed solutions targeted at the Aerospace sector
The Capabilities Hub will showcase a strong cohort of enterprises that serve the precision engineering industry. These companies will demonstrate their aptitudes in the manufacture of high-quality, advanced solutions - all dedicated to meet the emergent needs of Asia's Aerospace, Complex Equipment, Medical Technology and Oil & Gas sectors.
They include A & One Precision Engineering, ACP Metal Finishing, Beyonics Technology, CEI Contract Manufacturing, Frontken, Fujicon Engineering, Hup Fatt Brothers Engineering, Index Precision Industries, JEP Precision Engineering, JCS-Vanetec, Meiban Group, Microcast, NanoTechnology Manufacturing, Onn Wah Precision Machining Racer Technology, ST Kinetics Integrated Engineering, SolidMicron Technologies Tru-Marine, Trek 2000 International, Vigor Precision Engineering and Wah Son Engineering.
A & One, founded in 1992, has established itself as the premier service provider in the precision machinery industry. The company currently serves customers specialising in Data Storage, Semiconductor, Equipment Manufacturing, Medical Technology, Aerospace, Oil and Gas and Telecommunication Industries.
Mr. Leong Weng Kuan, Corporate General Manager and Sales Director of A & One Precision Engineering states, "Singapore's manufacturing economy is geared towards high value-added, low volume and high mix products. The setting up of the Capabilities Hub provides a platform for local companies to showcase the four high-end sectors Singapore is focusing on to the rest of the international brands present at the exhibition."
Also serving the aerospace sector, Onn Wah Precision Machining, is an AS9100 certified precision machining company. The company deals in complex medium-size components in a high-mix, low volume environment, and serves a diverse range of sectors including the Aerospace, Semiconductor, Oil & Gas, Biomedical and Optics. Company's Managing Director Mr. Lam Keng Yew believes that companies need to be niche to be able to compete in the current manufacturing environment.
"Singapore's manufacturing landscape has changed drastically. Due to the higher cost and labour constraints, we can only focus on manufacturing high value components which are either mission-critical, of high complexity or with high IP content. This is in line with the aerospace industry, which not only requires higher complexity parts, but also a complete system to ensure full compliances to defined processes with a traceable documentation," states Mr. Lam.
"Having spent the last few years developing ways to produce complex parts consistently with automated documentation flow that fulfil the aerospace requirements, Onn Wah is well prepared to provide such machining capabilities, and we're glad that MTA2013's Capabilities Hub provides a platform for us to showcase what we can offer."
Adding to MTA2013's luminous exhibitor line-up is well-known Singaporean company JCS Vanetec, which specialises in the manufacturing of 3D Compressor Airfoils, or Vanes, for all sizes of commercial and military aircraft engines. JCS Vanetec's services include the manufacturing of sheet metal components and offer Tool & Die turn-key solutions to the local and international gas turbine industry.
Another exhibitor, Wah Son Engineering, manufactures customised, highly-complex medium-to-large precision tools, fixtures and structural equipment. The company serves major global aerospace leaders in the manufacturing of aircraft engine & airframe tooling, fabrication of engineering structures & test equipment as well as the repair, maintenance & certification of precision tools.
MTA2013 - Choice Asian launch pad for global manufacturing players
Beyond the Capabilities Hub, MTA2013 will also unveil global manufacturing bigwigs who will be demonstrating their latest portfolio of machine tools and tooling systems targeted at the Aerospace sector.
DMG Mori Seki will launch the DMU 100 P duoBLOCK(R) - a 5-axis simultaneous processing with NC-round table and NC-controlled B-axis in standard.
DKSH Technology will take this opportunity to showcase a USA brand, the Haas ST-30 Y-Axis Lathe for off-center milling, drilling, and tapping that come standard with high-torque live tooling and a servo-driven C axis for versatile 4-axis capability.
Also at the DKSH's stand is a made-in-Switzerland technology, the Studer S41, a CNC universal cylindrical grinding machine that has technical features, such as the revolutionary StuderGuide guideway system, high-precision axis drives with linear motors, extremely fast direct drive of the B-axis and an even larger selection of grinding head variants.
MTA2013 Redefining the sphere of precision engineering
Asia's foremost precision engineering event, MTA, is gearing up to return with a loud bang. The 19th edition of MTA will see trade professionals hailing from all facets of Asia's diverse manufacturing sectors converging on one platform. These professionals have a firm goal to peruse an expansive range of high end manufacturing capabilities spread across the exhibition show floor at the Singapore Expo.
With Singapore being the key manufacturing hub in Asia, coupled with the prestige of MTA being the premium market place for both international and regional machine tool brands, MTA has long been the choice platform for machine tool brands to launch their latest products and services in Asia.
