In particular, Bystronic, a prominent returning exhibitor will display one of their best-of-breed products – the Xact 160/3100.

The Xact pressbrake is precision high-quality bending machine, offering everything on just one touch screen: construct parts, program bending plans, and test bending processes.

Meanwhile, Trumpf, a manufacturer of fabricating equipment will feature a new laser cutting machine as well as their best-seller product – TruLaser 1030 fiber – a cost-effective laser welding solution.

The machine shows its strengths in its ability to work on a wide range of material types and thicknesses combined with low investment and operating costs plus easy operation.

Bystronic senior vice president for Asia and Australia Norbert Seo said the event gave his company an opportunity to network and showcase its latest product range in laser cutting systems and pressbrakes.

“What is exciting about MTA Vietnam is that it provides you with the chance to explore new business opportunities and network with like-minded professionals,” he said.
