When people discuss countries that are known for automotive manufacturing, they usually bring up Japan, Germany, the United States, Korea and China. But would you believe us if we told you that Taiwan is a leading nation when it comes to technologies and innovations that impact car-making processes around the world?
This was basically the point of the recent “Taiwan Excellence Smart Machine Tools for Automotive Manufacturing Online Products and Solutions Launch,” a webinar that showcased the latest breakthroughs of four award-winning Taiwanese companies in the field of car manufacture. These organizations presented their advanced smart manufacturing techniques and automation solutions designed to simplify the challenges of modern car production.
The four companies are:
SEYI. One of the largest servo press makers in Taiwan introduced applications of servo presses in hot-stamping procedure for medium and large lightweight auto parts manufacturing, which comply with and meet the trend and application of lightweight but high-tensile steel parts. These will effectively strengthen the structure of automobiles.
Jainnher. Specializing in grinding machines, this brand introduced all kinds of grinding solutions for key engine and gearbox parts such as gears, shafts and bearings. It aims to improve the precision of parts and the efficiency of product lines through digital control and shock-absorbing techniques.
YDPM. The company submitted its complete processing solutions for automotive parts. With its lathe machines and machining centers, it assists buyers in building up high-efficiency, high-accuracy and high-flexibility product lines, and helps them produce all kinds of automobile parts with superior quality.
Tongtai. The organization offers an intelligent manufacturing solution that integrates different applications and uses multi-axis machines to make the production line more compact and efficient. Said solution also achieves digital-twin and cyber-physical qualities, and assists automakers to manage production resources more easily.
Simon Wang, executive vice president of Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), stated that the economy froze in the first half of the year because of the pandemic, and made a deep impact on the world’s industries. Which made manufacturers accelerate toward import automation, and focus their vision on new technology development such as electric vehicles as their response to future trends. “And since the global economy is starting to rise, we believe that automotive manufacturing and the machine tools industry will recover soon,” he said.
Wang also introduced the Anti-COVID-19 Online Pavilion in the webinar. The site shared Taiwan’s experience and expertise in fighting the pandemic, and introduced Taiwan’s medical products, which allow global visitors to find suitable solutions that will protect themselves during the medical crisis.
The Taiwan Excellence Smart Machinery Virtual Pavilion was also introduced at the conference, where buyers were offered up-to-date information on equipment and facilities for automotive and parts manufacturing.
Next up for Taiwan Excellence is TIMTOS 2021 on March 15-20. This event will show global buyers the latest smart manufacturing solutions with innovative automation and industry 4.0 concepts.
