  • Taiwan where automakers discover top-class total solutions

    Other than traditional machines, another notable area of excellence of Taiwan manufacturers is in building industry-specific machine tools and tailor-made

    machines. The versatility of Taiwan-made machines greatly differentiates them from standardized models. This edge in mechanical variation thus remains the main reason many international buyers have commissioned Taiwan makers to build purpose-built machines that matched their requirements.

    The intelligent future of automotive industryHaving examined the current condition of Taiwan-made machine tools, the next step is to decipher the prospects of Taiwans automobile manufacturing chain and learn how it contributes to the global auto sector. It is commonly agreed that digitalization is transforming the entire automotive chain - from design to production and then to sales and service. Continuous and automated digital planning and self-learning production systems are defining the future trends

    of automotive supply chain. Taiwans diverse ICT industry is well-prepared to marry its world-leading technological know-how to the manufacturing might of the automobile sector. Automation solutions providers, such as Delta, Advantech, Fair Friend Group, and industrial robotic expert HIWIN, have established 360-degree connectivity to merge software into automation solutions, which sharpen the application of IIoT(Industrial Internet of Things).

    As the car of the future is designed to communicate with the vast mobility network, every vehicle, part, and engine becomes a source for information

    transmission. In response to this trend, system providers and machine tool manufacturers are making efforts to successfully connect customers,

    equipment, manufacturing, and production management through the integration of IIoT technology, advanced automation solutions, and a CNC system. It is undeniably evident that Taiwans industrial digitalization capacity is flourishing, and a growing number of

    traditional machine tool manufacturers are transforming themselves into total solution strategists.

    In the not-so-distant future, Taiwan-made machine tools equipped with intelligent systems will be in step with fully autonomous auto and low-emission green automotive industry trends. From the fascinating machine tools to the world-renowned ICT/IIoT technology, Taiwan is very much qualified to provide mid- to high-end machine tools and

    systems for the revolving sector. Meanwhile, there are certainly abundant reasons for global

    automakers to establish production ties with Taiwan today.

    machines are dedicated to machining processes like boring and mold die machining. These manufacturers constantly supply machines for production of engines, aluminum wheels, head lights, doors, bumpers, etc.

    Innovation breeding edge-cutting/tailor-made machinesA great number of machine builders in Taiwan have cultivated mature technology in mill-turn and vertical machines, as these small-to-mid sized machine tools were among the earliest equipment being developed, and facilitated in the automobile sector. Pioneering manufacturer Tongtai has nearly half a century of experience in developing CNCs. Its success relies on its global recognition of automotive manufacturing machine tools, which account for 40-50% of its sales revenue. As a new era in automobile manufacturing unfolds, sophisticated machinery builders in Taiwan will continue to strengthen capacity to create state-of-the-art CNC lathes and multitasking centers so as to stay ahead of the current trends which emphasize light-weight, green, and composite-built vehicles.

    The automotive industry is experiencing a complete revolution today as burgeoning new trends in manufacturing are transforming the entire sector. Autos today are the embodiments of light-weight strategy, sustainable energy, autonomous system and industrial intelligence. These technologies helped trigger a comprehensive upgrade in the automobile production line.

    Taiwans manufacturers have demonstrated fruitful results in building high-end machine tools to supply the global production chain. In 2015 Taiwan was ranked 7th top producer and 5th top exporter of machine tools globally, while a large proportion of Taiwan-made machines contributed to various automotive applications.

    A distinguishing nature of MiT (made-in-Taiwan) machines Sharing a similar nature of the islands diverse history, the Taiwan machine tool industry has developed its own unique characteristics. Being the receiver of technologies from the first-tier industrial countries in the past centuries, the

    industry absorbed much knowledge and infused it with indigenous skills and innovations.

    Taiwans manufacturers have enriched their machine tools with remarkable precision and stability. With such capability, a number of machine tool manufacturers are tapped to be major OEMs for global automotive suppliers. MiT machine tools, such as 5-axis CNCs, multitasking CNCs, mill-turn CNCs, vertical CNCs, double-column machining centers, and grinders are being facilitated in car component manufacturing as well as mold and die tooling.

    Automotive machinery from upstream to downstreamOne important factor that has helped fuel growth in the Taiwan machine tool sector is the concentration of industrial clusters, which makes resources and components highly attainable. These industrial clusters are the backbone of international auto supply chain. They also have ano
