Michael Chang 's six-year term expired and handed over a beautiful transcript

  • 2022-01-17

       Michael Chang served as the second terns chairman of the Taiwan Woodworking Machinery Industry Association TWMA. At the end of his term, in addition to expressing his support and trust for the advanced members and supervisors, he also hopes to continue to promote the reform of the association under the leadership of the new chairman in the future. and enhance the well-being of members. Looking back on the past six years, Michael Chang has handed over beautiful transcripts: including Through the exhibition and delegation visits, we expanded the interaction and communications with international associations and organizations, such as VDMA (Germany), ACIMALL (Italy), JWMA(Japan), LJWMCC(China), QDWMA(China), Nankang Furniture Association(China), HAWA (Vietnam), BIFA (Vietnam), and the TFMAVN (Vietnam). We also established the "Taiwan Woodworking Machinery Technology Center" at the HCMUTE (Vietnam) to enhance the visibility of Taiwan woodworking machinery in the international arena. We participate in the program with Ministry of Economic Affairs, TAITRA, Taichung City Government, and PMC so that the members can share government resources. We become a member of the Smart Machinery (Smart Manufacturing) promotion Associations and speak for the industry through relevant channels. We establish a virtual exhibition hall for woodworking machinery and lead Taiwan's woodworking machinery towards digitalization of marketing. We have also established links with the University of Technology and the Industrial Senior High School to nurture local young students to continue the development of woodworking machinery. With the approval of the general meeting, the office will be relocated to Taichung City Center, near the Taichung City Government, which creates good opportunities for interaction with the industry, government, and academia, to enhance the Association's external image.         In terms of the overall global woodworking machinery industry, China's export ranking jumped to the world's first, followed by Germany, Italy, and Taiwan. There is still a lot of room for growth in Taiwan's woodworking machinery exports. European manufacturers are still in a leading position in the market due to the uniqueness and high quality of their products, but if Taiwan manufacturers want to improve their overall competitiveness, they should focus on the overall technological improvement and reduce the technological gap as the main goal. We will continue to expand the use of digital marketing strategies through online exhibitions and online seminars, and provide remote services through Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR).        Michael  hope that Taiwan woodworking machinery will move toward intelligent machinery and digital transformation to produce more environmentally friendly and energy-saving machinery and create prosperity.

Eumabois General Assembly 2021 A successful restart despite the Corona pandemic

  • 2021-11-12

       Eumabois, the European Federation of woodworking machinery and tools manufacturer, held its annual General Assembly on November 5th, 2021.        After substituting the onsite event with Eumabois first “Digital General Assembly” in 2020, the delegates and board members gathered again in presence in Vienna, hosted by the Austrian association FMTI, together with Eumabois president, Jürgen Köppel and the vice president, Luigi De Vito.        The opening topic was the general outlook on the woodworking industry which has been showing a rapid and very positive recovery. The figures, despite the fact that also the woodworking industry suffers from high material costs and lack of raw material, indicate a sustained growth rate in the mid-term. The global demand remains high, as evidence of the good resilience of the sector in response to the crisis triggered by the Corona virus. Mega-trends such as digitalization and industrial automation, as well as a growing demand for home furniture and kitchens, stimulated by travel restrictions and the cocooning effect, are driving the woodworking industry, too.        Looking at the Eumabois Exhibition Network 2021, most of the shows have been canceled. On the other hand, a full calendar of trade fairs is planned for 2022 with two top exhibitions events: HolzHandwerk in Nuremberg in March and Xylexpo in Milan with a new date in October. The positive signals coming from the exhibition sector are an important step towards the normality confirming the value and relevance of face-to-face events.        The meeting in Vienna was also used to officially launch the new Eumabois website with completely renewed and modern graphics. There were also important news on the technical projects side.: OPCUA (Open Platform Communication Unified Architecture) got the marketing name “IZY”, which has been officially presented to the market during LIGNA.Innovation Network on September 27th, 2021.        At the end of the Assembly, the president Jürgen Köppel expressed his sincere thanks to the hosting association FMTI and to all the present national associations, stating: “…I firmly believe that one of the key pillars for the growth of our industry is our joint European approach.”        The next Eumabois General Assembly will be held on 22nd-23rd of September 2022 in the city of Krakow, Poland.

       China’s ability to control the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent emergence as an even stronger economy has attracted global attention, including major furniture companies. As Asia’s flagship furniture manufacturing exhibition, CIFM / interzum guangzhou, to take place in conjunction with the China International Furniture Fair from 28 - 31 March 2022, is in a favourable position to leverage the growth.        According to statistics, China's furniture manufacturing output reached 520 million units in the first half of 2021, a year-on-year increase of 30.1 per cent. In terms of exports, the cumulative value of the country's furniture and parts exports as of July hit US$40.926 billion, a year-on-year increase of 47.20 per cent. Among them, furniture exports to Germany in the first half of the year increased by 45 per cent, replacing Poland as Germany's most important furniture supplying country. International platform for global trade        China is experiencing a good momentum as a continuously growing economy. Under the country’s dual circulation economic policy powered by domestic consumption, the Pearl River Delta region’s concentration of custom furniture makers and reputation for producing ‘everything under the sun’ makes it particularly appealing for global players to mine the China market.        As an affluent society, the expansion of domestic demand further drives lucrative industry opportunities, digitalization and new materials to emerge at scale.        CIFM / interzum guangzhou 2022 will take up 340,000 square meters in floor space, and is expected to feature over 2,000 well-known companies from around the world. Some 200,000 visitors are also slated to source at the event.        Backed by a wealth of global resources, the exhibition covers the entire industry vertical. Exhibit categories include: hardware accessories and components; interior decoration materials and accessories; machinery, auxiliary materials and accessories for upholstered furniture; wood products and panels; adhesives, coatings and other chemical raw materials; and machinery, accessories and equipment for woodworking furniture production.        International companies have been showing active interest in CIFM / interzum guangzhou to open up the business opportunities and gain a foothold in the immense China as well as Asian market.        At present, a number of international giants have confirmed their participation, including: Homag, IMA, Nanxing, KDT, Paolino Bacci, Freud, SANDAR, HOLD, Leitz, Lianrou, Yuantian, Hengchang, Hengye, Kehua, Schattdecor, REHAU, LG, Hyundai, Kronospan, Henkel, LINAK, Dilong, Taiqiang, Yaodonghua, Jiashijia, SINODECOR, Yongwei, Huamei, Zhuokai, KINNAY, Liwang, Zhaogang, DREAM LEADER, Tianye, Anran, DTC, SH-ABC, ADAMS, UNIHOPPER, Jusen, UNION STAR, OPK, TUTTI, MEIKI,KEA, King Slide, REPON, TITUS, ITALIANA FERRAMENTA, LS Lighting, Sugatsune, SUSPA        In addition to regular product displays, the exhibition will continue to feature diversified content and business opportunities through a variety of formats, such as the Business Package Plus (BPP) area, in-person business matching, offline-2- online live business matching, industry forum sessions, as well as conceptual spaces to promote the industry’s cutting-edge technology, and help companies respond to the shifting consumer demands. Return of “20 PLUS 20” Awards        With the mission to uncover the most innovative furniture accessories and give recognition to the companies behind them, the "20 PLUS 20” Annual List will return once again to CIFM / interzum guangzhou in 2022.        Details impart vitality to a piece of furniture, while design is the soul and materials form the backbone. A piece of furniture that pays attention to details can have long-lasting longevity in the continuously changing market.        The 20 PLUS 20 Annual List – with origins from the influential “interzum Award” in Cologne, Germany – will feature the theme "In Pursuit of Furniture Accessories with Vitality" for 2021-2022.        Compared with 70 per cent penetration rate abroad, China’s custom furniture market is still in its infancy.

Winning products will be showcased at the 20 PLUS 20 feature display to serve as inspirations for the industry. Industry engagement - Innovation forum        Traditional manufacturing model and product functions have gradually been unable to meet the needs of the times. Product features are becoming increasingly diverse, and the introduction of smart products has become an inevitable trend. The further integration of technology and practical functions of furniture products is poised to become a new area of growth for the industry.        Innovation drives development. Revolving around the topic "Vitality of Sustainable Innovation to Life", the interzum guangzhou 2022 forum will see the gathering of business representatives, renowned designers and trend experts to examine ways to inject life into furniture through design and technological innovation.

  • 2021-08-27

Due to the ongoing uncertainties surrounded by Covid-19, we regret to announce that the postponement of the VietnamWood show will be move to further year. We understand your inconvenience, however, such difficult decision was not taken without serious concern. The event will be taking place in the coming year on 18 - 21 October 2022 at Saigon Exhibition & Convention Center (SECC). The decision is made in view of the new COVID-19 clusters in Vietnam and with the deep concern for the health of the exhibitors and stakeholders. According to the latest statistics (August 2021), local vaccination in Vietnam has yet to reach 10 % of the total population. Key points which led to the decision: The current state of mass gatherings is still on banned with no indication of it nor when this restriction will be lifted. The current level of restrictions and quarantining for individual visiting Vietnam would severely affect international exhibitors. Concerns raised by exhibitors about attending and whether it would be viable for them to do so with possible enforced restrictions on attendance affecting visitor numbers. Visitors expressing concern that the event would not be as good as usual with fewer exhibitors and features. VietnamWood is the leading regional trade show in Woodworking industry, leading up to the new show date, a series of pre-show digital event are on their way as an important element for staying in touch with customers and bridging the gap until VietnamWood 2022.

         A new, big exhibition concept dedicated to manufacturing technology will be launched at FieraMilano-Rho from 12 to 15 October 2022, resulting from a partnership between BI-MU and Xylexpo, respectively organized by Ucimu-Sistemi per produrre - the association of Italian manufacturers of machine tools, robots and automation - and Acimall, the association of Italian woodworking machinery manufacturers.        In times of unprecedented challenges, also for exhibitions, the two events will offer a new scenario where operators will have the opportunity to find expertise, solutions and ideas for a common goal: producing with more and more sustainable and efficient methods, according to Industry 4.0 principles.           As reference events in their respective industries, 33.BI-MU (biennial exhibition of machine tools, robotics and automation, additive manufacturing, digital and auxiliary technologies) and Xylexpo (biennial exhibition of woodworking technology and furniture industry components) will be presented as distinct but complementary events, highlighting their respective peculiarities while leveraging every possible synergy.        This decision will expand the audience of potential visitors for exhibitors on one side (unified access to the fairgrounds will allow to visit both exhibitions), and on the other it will help the visitors from the sectors of furniture, design, industrial plants, machinery for aluminum, composites and next-generation materials, interested in both events, to make the most of their trip to Milan.        Besides a wider technology lineup, visitors will have access to a rich agenda of additional events, in-depth debates on technical, technological and economic topics relevant for both sectors, through presentations, seminars and conferences. Special attention will be dedicated to the big topics of digital and sustainability, two key concepts for the future development of the industry and the global economy. In this scenario, the two worlds that will meet in Milan in October 2022 have been experiencing a momentous evolution that will be visible during the joint event.        “This project – said Barbara Colombo, president of Ucimu-Sistemi per produrre – is much more than the sum of two historical and popular exhibitions. We believe that the merger of BI-MU and Xylexpo will help the industry represented in both exhibitions to show the best of its contents and potential. Under these premises, we believe that the event will be a point of attraction for the global manufacturing industry, with strong visibility in Italy and abroad, to the benefit of all the companies that will choose to participate”.        According to Luigi De Vito, president of Acimall, “…a more and more crowded exhibition calendar, now complicated by the rescheduling of many events due to the pandemic, the new technologies and the stronger and stronger international competition require a deep and accurate revision of the exhibition concept, which cannot be "only" a place where demand and supply meet. The collaboration between Xylexpo and BI-MU will develop into an innovative platform that will be focused on "high-end technology" and the many, profitable interactions that such technology can generate, offering an involving and successful experiential event to operators, exhibitors, institutions and all stakeholders”.        Luca Palermo, managing director of Fiera Milano, commented the concept of the new event: “We are proud that BI-MU and Xylexpo – both reference events in Italy and all over the world in their respective industries – have been featured in our calendar for over fifty years, as evidence of the appreciation of our premises and the services offered by Fiera Milano. I believe that the decision to put together these events will bring further benefits to the organizers and exhibitors of both exhibitions; on our part, we are ready to check all the details of the new project together”. ACIMALL – the association of Italian manufacturers of woodworking machine tools, with over 150 member companies – represents an industry that generates 2.5 billion euro revenues, with a 75 percent export share.  UCIMU-SISTEMI PER PRODURRE, the association of Italian manufacturers of machine tools, robots and automation, represents over 70 percent of the industry's made-in-Italy production, accounting for approximately 9 billion euro revenues. The export share is 56 percent of production. Source: XYLEXPO
