Engineering In Focus: Comin Asia


Following the success of their fabrication facility in Phnom Penh, and the current growth and success in Myanmar, Comin Asia is opening a new fabrication facility in Yangon to cater for the growing demand.

Comin Asia provides international high added value and innovative engineering solutions to the Southeast Asian region.

This facility will be sized for the daily processing of three tons of GI sheet, similar to the existing capacity in Phnom Penh. With a minimum of 20 permanent staff, it will also act as an international training centre, not only for duct fabrication specialists, but also for duct installers, on site, welders, plumbers, electricians and fire fitters.

In conjunction with the opening of this new facility, Comin Asia are upgrading additional machinery to produce spiral and flexible duct along with the existing rectangular product. This machinery will be deployed both in Phnom Penh and Yangon.

All equipment is computer driven, with CNC integrated software directly interfaced with 3D BIM shop drawings ensuring the highest productivity and the most accurate production management. This technology also ensures the best usage for raw material along the fabrication line, with the computer optimising the nesting of all cutouts on the GI sheet, while maintaining a higher speed of production.

Comin Asia will also install a line of fabrication for aluminum flexible ducts, which will come as a complement to their GI fabrication.

Traditionally, ventilation and air conditioning ducts have been manufactured with rectangular cross sections. The rectangular duct can easily be adapted. For instance, restricted ceiling voids and plant rooms, however, often at the cost of efficient airflow design and possible cost savings.

A circular duct system normally performs better and offers a more economical solution. Spiral duct work is “green cubed” and is a far more sustainable product for the environment – it saves “green money” for contractors, and for building owners, who can save up to 30 percent on fan energy.

Established as Comin Khmere in 1960 in Cambodia, Comin Asia now has more than 1,200 employees within a network of six offices spread across Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos and Myanmar, and provides international high added value and innovative engineering solutions.
