2023 M-Tech Nagoya -
Increased Demand for Automotive Parts and Project Fasteners
The 8th M-Tech Nagoya was successfully held from April 12 to 14, 2023 in Hall 1 of the Port Messe Nagoya. A Japanese exhibitor at the show told Fastener World that the venue was packed with people on the first day of the show, and remained heavily patronized for three consecutive days. According to the data of the organizer, 8,044 people came on the first day, 9,093 on the second day, and 10,363 on the third day, increasing day by day for three consecutive days, reaching 275,000 people in total. In fact, Fastener World’s booth saw more visitors coming to seek matchmaking services on the third day.
One visitor to Fastener World shared a new trend that is brewing in the international market— titanium alloy powder. This is a high precision material that can be used as a raw material for the production of high-end products such as medical grade, aerospace grade, and automotive grade fasteners, and is gradually attracting the interest of many fastener manufacturers. Due to high plasticity and machinability, powdered titanium alloy is very suitable for forming high precision and highly customized fastener products. Even when customers request specific fastener shapes, powdered titanium alloy can handle. Therefore, the production using titanium alloy powder is very flexible and suitable for manufacturers who are upgrading to high value-added products. The potential of titanium alloy powder in the future is considerable.
The organizer announced that the next M-Tech Nagoya will be held from April 10 will be unveiled again on April 10-12, 2024.
