TIMTOS highlights journey to Net Zero
The Taipei International Machine Tool Show, widely known as TIMTOS, will be held from 6-11 March 2023 at Taipei Nangang Exhibition Centre (Halls 1/2 and TWTC Hall 1). With 1,000+ exhibitors in nearly 6,200 booths, on an even larger scale than last year, TIMTOS 2023 is one of the leading machine-tool trade shows in the world. Key themes at TIMTOS 2023 will be green machine tools; smart machinery; flexible manufacturing and digital simulation.
“As the EU and many countries are set to implement or introduce carbon taxation policies, this year's TIMTOS is going to shed lights on the net-zero transition which is a common and urgent concern of the global manufacturing industry. Two major event series, ‘ESG action!’ and ‘ESG in TIMTOS’ will be launched to team up with exhibitors and industry professionals to provide new insights and a consultation service that will help more machine-tool players to accelerate their transition towards carbon neutrality,” said one of the show organisers, TAITRA.
The ‘ESG action!’ series will take place in TWTC Hall 1. The core events include ‘Dr. Net Zero’, which will bring together senior industry consultants from the Industrial Technology Research Institute; Foundation of Taiwan Industry Service; Taiwan Association of Green Energy Transition; Ernst & Young Global and RCI Engineering to offer free carbon footprint consultations for TIMTOS attendees. The ‘Insights Stage’ at TWTC Hall 1 will also showcase events such as the ESG Seminar, Master Talk and ‘Greening the Machine Tool Industry Insights’ Talk.
“At ‘ESG in TIMTOS’, attendees can explore how the integration of advanced technology in manufacturing can be more efficient, smarter and greener. The event will feature diverse activities such as Metalworking Ecosystem Guided Tour; Future Manufacturing Forum; Maker Workshop; Parts Cleaning Seminar; Marine & Offshore Machinery Seminar and live recordings of the Manufacturers’ WIN Podcast,” added TAITRA.
Meanwhile, three new themed areas have been added to TWTC Hall 1 featuring ‘Advanced Metalworking Technology’, ‘Additive Manufacturing’ and ‘Future Manufacturing’. Free shuttle services between TWTC Hall 1 and Nangang Halls will be provided daily during the show.
