TAIPEI, TAIWAN--(Marketwired - Feb 8, 2015) - TIMTOS 2015 is the machine show where all the wonders of modern tech come in a thousand faces. Otherwise known as the 2015 Taipei Int'l Machine Tool Show, this tech-fest comes once every two years to link an industry eager to scout the latest efficiencies, breakthroughs and prospects.

The chief spotlight this year will highlight growing trends toward "automated production." That kind of production encompasses the global wave in smarter manufacturing that includes the best of the top two nations, namely "Advanced Manufacturing Partner (AMP) Program" in the USA and the "Industry 4.0 Plan" of Germany. 

This event, the second largest in Asia and Taiwan's largest, is organized by TAITRA (Taiwan External Trade Development Council) and TAMI (Taiwan Association of Machinery Industry) and unfolds March 3rd to 8th at TWTC Halls 1 & 3, NANGANG Exhibition Hall and Yuanshan EXPO Dome. The spring event joins more than 1,000 companies who are using 5,400 booths covering a record 100,000+ sq. meters of show space.

The venue is a leading site to size up the strengths and achievements of high-efficiency automated production for such as major stamping equipment manufacturers as Chin Fong's "automated steel coiling and feeding production line for automotive sheet metal" that uses laser to boost efficiency by more than 30% in welding thick and thin plates.

Nearby is Fatek Automation Technology of the Far East Machinery Group which has recently installed two fully automated aluminum wheel rim production lines which can be respectively used for processing aluminum wheel rims for large trucks and passenger cars with high production efficiency.

Tongtai Machine & Tool has exploited its edge in mechanical design and R&D strengths in advanced technology and high performance-price ratio to enhance its self-developed automated production line intelligent functions to include the differentiation of workpiece types and automatic measurement and correction. The chairman of Tongtai Machine & Tools, Rui-Hsiung Yan has boldly predicted that "Taiwan's CNC processing machines for aluminum alloy rims now have the chance to become the top supplier."

Taiwan machine tool industry's development toward automation is an irresistible trend and full of huge prospects. Looking forward, Taiwan can even leverage its ICT strengths to pioneer automated production lines that combine machine tools and machine arms and to further combine its automation equipment and industrial robots to transform the manufacturing industry into a virtual service industry of added value. TIMTOS 2015 cordially invites the industry to participate. Industry participants are welcome to use the Internet ( to pre-register. Admission is free during the exhibition with the presentation of a relevant business card.

Founded in 1970 to promote foreign trade, the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) is the foremost non-profit trade promotion organization in Taiwan.
