Vietnam needs to use more advanced technology in the mold industry of the country, especially in the technology and computerized automation. Experts have said such a conference in Ho Chi Minh City.
Molds used to manufacture machine tools, industrial components, presses, stamping machines and other products.
The workshop was organized recently by the Institute of Economic Research, Ho Chi Minh City (Hier) and manufacturers of Japanese industrial components, Misumi Corporation. This group's plant-based automation in the design and production to save time, costs and increase profits.
Hier experts and Misumi presented topics such as "outlook of the industry mold Vietnam", "Factory Automation", "The Standard components for plastic mold".
Mai Tran Trinh, who runs counseling centers, information economics and business training Hier, said that domestic demand needs of different types of molds to meet the rapidly growing needs of the industry now. Mold manufacturing capabilities in the country is limited and meets only a small portion of molds needed for the production of goods for domestic consumption.

Director of the Misumi business in Vietnam, Nguyen Hoang Khanh said: "Many countries in the region and around the world using digital and automation for designing and manufacturing molds. Therefore, the industry mold their highly developed. "
"The industry machinery Vietnam tools have not been developed with design tools and outdated. Therefore, the quality and style of molding below the standard, "he said.
He also said that the use of software designed parts of the mold and then the automatic production rather than labor to increase production.
"Many businesses Vietnam has not focused on the automation of their production processes. This causes loss of time and labor. Limited manufacturing capabilities is one of the reasons why they can not compete with rivals in the region. "
The seminar attracted 140 engineers from 80 companies at home and abroad. Most of these companies are operating in industrial parks and export processing zones of the city, such as Amata, Linh Trung and Tan Thuan.
