Spotlight on agricultural machinery at Agritechnica Asia 2018 in Bangkok

asia 2017The Agritechnica Asia, one of the largest trade fair for agricultural machinery and equipment, will be held in Bangkok from 22 – 24 August 2018

For the first time, the event will include the new Systems & Components of the agricultural machinery. The event will enable visitors to be involved in research and development, procurement and purchasing at original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the off-highway sector.

In addition, the visitors will be able to find out about innovations in the fields of engines, hydraulics, axles, gearboxes, cabins, electronics and other components.

At Agritechnica 2017, the event focused on how the interaction of different technologies could bring new and smart mobile farming applications to agriculture. Introducing this new element to Agritechnica Asia is expected to promote increased standards of farm machinery in Southeast Asian markets.

“The Systems & Components Asia special show will be an important part of Agritechnica Asia 2018, and our Hosted Buyer Programme, whereby we are able to invite a large group of decision makers, will assure exhibitors that their top clients will be present,” Katharina Staske, project manager of Agritechnica Asia, said.

Special Show: Maintenance

Along with partner companies, Systems & Components Asia is set to present a special feature on every aspect of maintenance operations, from the basics to the advanced techniques.

There will be two distinct parts to the feature, one for “Smart and Predictive Maintenance,” where companies can showcase their products in hydraulics, transmissions, engines, cabins and the human-machine interface, and the other highlighting “Basic Maintenance,” with live demonstrations and equipment workshops.

“An important aspect of agricultural mechanisation is preserving the economic-functional value of machines and implements through servicing and maintenance to increase their lifespan and reducing breakdowns and malfunctions,” Dr Raffaele Talarico, a DLG expert for Systems & Components International, said.

Thailand’s Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives is supporting Agritechnica Asia and Systems & Components Asia, aiming to better target the specific needs of the rapidly developing Southeast Asian market.

“We want to reduce inequality and create stability in Thailand’s farming sector, and the plans we are implementing include efforts to improve the knowledge of farmers through learning centers and other initiatives, as well as promoting agricultural mechanisation to reduce the labour requirement and increase efficiency in the sector,” noted Chutima Bunyapraphasara, Thailand’s deputy minister of commerce and former deputy minister of agriculture and cooperatives.
