The Only Machine Tool Industrial Cluster in the World
Taiwan has the world’s only machine tool and accessory industrial cluster, which can meet the global demand for machine tools, parts, and components. Due to the tight integration of the country’s machine tool industry supply chain and geographical location, the production efficiency and resilience of Taiwan’s machine tool industry has been significantly enhanced.
Taiwan’s Machine Tools Have Moved towards Smart Manufacturing and Have Improved Processing Efficiency
In response to the aging, shortage and high cost of the global labor force, and to meet the needs of customers in the consumer market for customization, changeability and rapid production, Taiwan’s machine tools are equipped with complete and diverse intelligent functions such as temperature rise compensation, anti-collision and process optimization for single machines, and automated manufacturing cells and production lines constructed by the “integrated machine tool and automation facility” equipped with robotic arms. Moreover, technology, knowledge and information as well as human ingenuity and creative development are also combined with these functions to apply in the “Smart Manufacturing System.”
Outstanding Products and Customized Service
In pursuit of research and innovation, Taiwan’s machine tool manufacturers, in addition to continuous improvement of structural design and functions of their products, can also tailor customized solutions for their clients. In recent years, the manufacturers have further deliberated in terms of system integration how to help their customers’ production and processing so as to increase their competitive edges, which illustrates that the industry has transformed from the previously “cold” machine tool builder to a “thoughtful” manufacturing partner.
Outstanding domestic and foreign manufacturers have made great efforts to participate in the “2018 Taiwan International Machine Tool Show (TMTS).” From machine tools to automation, customization and smart demand, or smart manufacturing cloud platform and other comprehensive solutions, the exhibitors can help the visitors experience the efforts and innovations made by Taiwan’s machine tool industrialists to serve their customers.
