World Trade Centre will host the Taiwan International Machine Show (TIMTOS). The show

machine tools, sensors, robots, cloud data analysis, remote monitoring and other complete lines or complete plant solutions – all dedicated to moving Industry 4.0 forward.
Smart manufacturing is an important part
of Industry 4.0 and artificial intelligence

manufacturing. The expo will thus also
focus heavily on AI: international technological companies and potential new talents

development software, key components,
modules and complete machines which
aid industry in utilising AI technologies to
achieve synergy between man and machine
and improve efficiency and flexibility.

a record-breaking number which makes
TIMTOS the third largest machine tool
expo in the world.
The show's internationalisation has also
strengthened over time. Foreign exhibitors
from Germany, Italy, Switzerland, USA,
Denmark and Turkey will have their own
national exhibition halls at the expo.
