The second edition of Delhi Machine Tool Expo went underway on 10th August at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. The exhibition was inaugurated by Rattan Kapur, President of Automotive Component Manufacturers Association of India (ACMA), Parakramsinh G Jadeja, President – IMTMA; P. Ramadas, Vice President – IMTMA and V Anbu, Director General and CEO of IMTMA.
Organised by the Indian Machine Tools Manufacture’s Association (IMTMA), the exhibition will be held for four days from 10th August - 13th August 2017 and will serve as a platform to demonstrate the latest manufacturing technologies. With over 240 exhibitors, the expo covers the entire gamut of metal working machine tools for both metal cutting and metal forming including automation and robotics, tooling systems, CAD/CAM and other technologies which are essential for today’s manufacturing.
Speaking at the inauguration, Kapur emphasised, “Machine Tool is the backbone of the manufacturing industry and contributes immensely towards its development. ACMA and IMTMA have been working closely towards addressing the growing needs of the automotive component manufacturers and shall continue to do so in the years to come. Exhibitions like these will enable the manufacturers in the region to explore and get closer to the technologies they are looking for.”
“Government of India’s Auto Mission Plan ( AMP) 2016-26 aims to make automobile manufacturing the main driver of ‘Make in India’ initiative as passenger vehicles market is likely to triple to 9.4 million units by 2026 creating tremendous opportunity for machine tool industry,” he added.
“IMTMA has acted as a catalyst in the overall development of the machine tool and manufacturing industry through its various initiatives such as exhibitions, seminars, summits, training of industry workforce for enhancing skill development through its technology centres. More than 100 trade delegations representing auto components, automobiles, railways, defence, aerospace, power and heavy engineering will be visiting the Expo in next four days,” shared Jadeja.
Welcoming the delegates, Anbu said, “We have 242 exhibitors displaying state-of-the-art technology solutions and innovations for both metal cutting and metal forming as well Metrology and Welding. Ten foreign countries Australia, Czech Republic, China, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, USA including India are participating in the show. We foresee a good visitor representation from Delhi as well as other industrial towns of Punjab, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Haryana during the four days show.”
