Automating the automotive industry with Taiwan’s smart manufacturing

Automating the automotive industry with Taiwan’s smart manufacturing

The average car sported around 40 semiconductors in the year 2000. Powered by machine learning, AI, IoT and other advanced capabilities, the number of chips and sensors in an automobile is expected to soar up to 70,000 by 2025. Taiwan, being one of the largest semiconductor manufacturers, has gradually been pushing the boundaries in the automotive industry to achieve a competitive advantage.

With that, four Taiwan Excellence awarded winners demonstrated their most innovative products during the “Smart Machine Tools for Automotive and Parts Manufacturing” online showcase on 28 October. The event was organised by the Bureau of Foreign Trade (BOFT), MOEA, Taiwan, R.O.C., and the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA).

Simon Wang, Executive Vice President of TAITRA, mentioned that the pandemic has caused the economy to freeze in Q1 and Q2. Amidst that, the contactless phenomenon prevails, which means industries are putting more effort on accelerating automation, and this has created emerging opportunities in the smart machine tools industry.

This event focused on some of the most innovative Taiwanese companies, namely:

Automating the automotive industry with Taiwan’s smart manufacturing
  • SEYI’s " Straight Side Eccentric Gear Servo Press” includes drawing, forming, blanking, punching and cutting of automotive parts, which comply and satisfy the trend and application of steel parts with light weight but high tensile strength in modern automotive industry. In addition, the combination of progressive die with pendulum curve can double productivity, saving more 50% energy.

  • Automating the automotive industry with Taiwan’s smart manufacturing
  • JAINNHER’s “Centreless Grinding Machine” is specially made for external grinding. The grinder is cast of high-grade FC-30 iron melted by advanced induction furnace, then cast in resin cores. In order to ensure stability and rigidity, it is heat-treated with normalising procedure prior to machining. It is also compatible with various kinds of automatic devices.

  • YDPM’s “Horizontal Machining Centres” offer simple operation and versatile machining areas. Automating the automotive industry with Taiwan’s smart manufacturing It can be applied to versatile machining components like watchmaking, automotive, motorcycle, electronics and aircraft industries. Designed based on customers’ feedback, it is also easy to operate, lightweight and has high rigidity.

  • TONGTAI’s “Smart & Flexible Manufacturing System” focuses on integrating comprehensive manufacturing data and inputting information into the customer’s ERP system and their supply chain system for further applications by combining IoT (Internet of Things), CPS (Cyber-Physical System), FMS (Flexible Manufacturing System) and MES (Manufacturing Execution System). With flexibility, it aims to design production lines best suited to for each customer.
