The Taiwan’s plastics and rubber machinery industry has rolled out advanced smart manufacturing solutions, to fulfill the demand for cutting-edge technique development and customised production to the global manufacturing industry.
Taiwan, as one of the top six plastics and rubber machinery exporting countries in the world, is recognised for providing high-quality products with refined technology and consistent
The new smart machines were unveiled during the Taiwan Excellence Plastic & Rubber Machinery Online Press Conference 2020,” organised by the Bureau of Foreign Trade (BOFT), MOEA, Taiwan, R.O.C., and the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), in conjunction with the Taiwan Association of Machinery Industry (TAMI).
Representatives from four leading Taiwanese companies including Fu Chun Shin Machinery Manufacture Co., Ltd. (FCS), ChumPower Machinery Corp., Fong Kee International Machinery Co., Ltd., and Diing Kuen Plastic Machinery, Co., Ltd., presented their advanced smart manufacturing solutions, from Two-Component Injection Molding Machines, High Speed Stretch Blow Molding Machines, Intelligent
All-Electric Blow Molding Machines to a Five layer co-extrusion for industrial stretch-hood.
In his opening speech, President & CEO of TAITRA, Mr. Walter Yeh, said in response to the trend of Industry 4.0, Taiwan’s plastics and rubber machinery industry is constantly upgrading and combines Taiwan’s strong ICT & smart automation technologies, to build smart systems and solutions to fulfill the demand for cutting-edge technique development and customised production.
Deputy Director General, BOFT, Mr. Guann-Jyh Lee, who said the circular economy is the next trend in the industry, due to the rise of global plastic restriction issues, said manufacturers must be able to quickly respond to new production regulations.
He added that Taiwan is also continuing to accelerate the creation of all-electric injection molding machines with good environmental performance, featuring low noise, low vibration, power saving, cooling water saving and running cost savings, to become the best partner of the global manufacturing industry with environmentally friendly smart machinery.
While speaking on: “Intelligent Robotic Endoscope Surgery,” Sales Manager, Fu Chun Shin Machinery Manufacture Co., Ltd. (FCS), Mr. Neilson Su, said in order to meet various customer needs nowadays, FCS dedicates itself to developing customised multi-component injection molding machines, which broaden the application scope of the industry.
The Sales Support Engineer, ChumPower Machinery Corp., Mr. Tony Wu, who focused on “High speed stretch blow molding machine: L-Series.,” demonstrated that the product is the fastest blow molding machine in the world, with its per cavity output of 2,250 bottles per hour being faster than its competitors’ 1,800-2,000 bottles per hour. Global brands including PEPSI, Kao, LOTTE, and more use Chumpower machines to produce PET bottles.
Mr. Charles Wei of Fong Kee International Machinery Co., Ltd. introduced their “Intelligent All-Electric Three Layer Blow Molding Machine-Industry 4.0.” He emphasised that the model is environmentally friendly. “Specifically, it decreases average power consumption by 18 per cent, Specific Energy Index by 22 per cent, Noise Levels by 20db and CO2 emissions by 42.4 per cent, while increasing the production rate by 13.3 per cent. “Moreover, it is equipped with SCADA system, so for long term production, all data can be collected for further analysis to improve efficiency, cut costs, and enhance profitability.
The Vice Chairman, Diing Kuen Plastic Machinery, Co., Ltd., Mr.Eric Wei, showed off “Driving you to smart manufacturing: Five layers co-extrusion for industrial stretch-hood.”
He noted that with the application of IIoT, the product can provide remote service, detection, and automated online operation.
“Furthermore, clients can use the augmented reality instruction manual to eliminate the operating difficulties, which is very important during the COVID-19 pandemic, because of the need to avoid face-to-face interaction.”
The event attracted over 532 viewers online from countries including Egypt Germany, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Pakistan, the Philippines, Russia, South Korea, Thailand, Turkey, and Vietnam among others.
