Spoke at the 13th Asian Foundry Congress, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Mr.Cao Quoc Hung highly appreciated the role of Vietnam casting industry in general and mechanical engineering industry in the world. Vietnam is step by step towards the goal of the industrialization and modernization, therefore the mechanical industry is now paying more attention. In order to develop the industry, it is necessary to promote the foundry industry, because it is an intermediary connecting the metallurgical industry and the mechanical industry, thereby producing the products for society.
Nowadays, the manufacturer hub is shifted from China to Southeast countries due to the commercial dispute between China and US. Following the impact of Covid-19, many businesses are pushed to find alternative one and Vietnam is expected to be the next manufacturing hub in Asia.
The Vietnamese Government has applied many supportive policies to promote the foundry industry and it believes that Vietnam foundry has recently achieved the positive results. Casting products have been exported into many countries in the world. Products are exported in two forms: single component casting (reaching USD 1,424 million in 2010), casting parts in equipment or machine such as diesel engines, pumps, motors (reaching USD 35-40 million in 2010).
According to Mr. Pham Anh Tuan, Deputy Director General of Heavy Industry Department- Ministry of Industry and Trade, ingot casting is an extremely important process in mechanical industry, almost factory in Vietnam used green- sand casting technology, therefore the quality of casted object is low, the scrap rate is high and the object needs to be machined. In period 2010-2015, almost the factory has less experience in high precision casting and it became the biggest challenge. The casting products which have been domestically produced just satisfied the demand of the domestic market, mainly gray cast iron, steel casting for mechanical industry.
Facing to this situation, the Vietnam companies have studied from the countries have reputation in foundry industry such as Japan, Taiwan, US, India. The factories from traditional villages have invested to equip the modern production line, access to technology. Taniguchi Vietnam is proud to be one of the parts of the picture. We have provided technical training to Vietnam casting companies. Our expert with over 50 years of experience, has supported foundry company about technology, observed and monitored the whole process from designing, molding, pattern, equipment, melting, pouring, machining. We have comprehensively cooperated with foundry companies, which can well perform the casting processes such as furan casting, greensand casting and lost foam casting. Specially our strength is lost foam casting technology. In the years 2020, the Vietnam foundry companies have strongly transformed, the export productivity has been increased, the quality is accepted by strictly market.
