  3. 3. Taiwan-made machine tools leap into new-generation manufacturing Vertically and horizontally integrated Apart from supplying advanced machining equipment to the global manufacturing market, Taiwan also provides integrated machine development solutions. The nation operates one of the world’s most prolific industry clusters, which gives its machinery makers an edge in providing complete supply chain service and one-stop machining solutions to international manufacturers. Industrial parks located across the island serve as bases of thousands of machine tool makers, assemblers, and machine part suppliers who are globally recognized for their skills and technological achievements. They support each other through cooperation and collaboration, thus enabling them to be as flexible and adaptable as possible. Upstream and downstream companies in the machinery industry are integrated vertically. Furthermore, the Taiwan machine tool sector is also aligning with other industries like information technology. By integrating horizontally, Taiwan machine tool suppliers have tapped into the strengths of other sectors to create more advanced machining applications. The rise of multifunction machines, customized machining processes, and smart automation solutions from Taiwan has greatly improve overall manufacturing performance. This is also fueling a surge in demand for hybrid machine tools. Manufacturers can easily find Taiwan-made machines that blend additive manufacturing and multi-tasking functions. Hybrid machines like these are especially well-suited for small lot production of difficult-to-cut materials required in the aerospace, medical and energy industries. Taiwan’s growing success in providing machining automation is also the result of horizontal integration. For example, energy-efficient power products from leading companies have helped makers increase the power supply efficiency of their machines by up to 90 percent. Meanwhile, automation solution providers in Taiwan have secured a number of patents for measurement applications, which can substantially improve capability to provide in-house automated handling and manufacturing execution systems (MES). Such automation systems will help realize fully automated cells in factories. Taiwan machine tool makers have mustered enough support from the nation’s technology sector, giving them the edge to create machining solutions for maximum stability, efficiency, and functionality. For manufacturers who are aiming to boost productivity and quality, Taiwan provides the most comprehensive solutions in machine tools used in different manufacturing sectors. technique can achieve deeper and more precise holes with smaller diameters. Both help enhance the range of applications of machine tools. With such high- performance machines, good production practices can be upheld by every manufacturer, whether it is located in an advanced nation or a developing country. This also means future machines can level the playing field, which will give underdeveloped economies the opportunity to develop their fledging manufacturing sector with the help of advanced machine tools from Taiwan. Taiwan of late has also made significant inroads in the development of large- sized, multi-axis machines, thus giving a number of local machine tool builders the leverage to compete on the global stage. Several Taiwanese companies specialize in 5-axis, high-speed, double-column, and moving-column machining centers that are extensively used in aviation manufacturing. And so international manufacturers who are sourcing for machine tools that could meet their production requirements do not have to look far as Taiwan offers all sorts of industry-specific machines that can verily meet their expectations and budget. www.twmt.tw Local machinery manufacturers are pillars of Taiwan’s economy: they have for many years maintained a distinct and irreplaceable role in the production sector, especially in the development and supply of machine tools. Nearly every producer who succeeded in the manufacturing market has them to thank for. According to a WTO statistics report, Taiwan placed second among the world’s top contributors to the global value chain in 2015, with nearly 70% of its manufactured goods and services exported worldwide. This evidently shows the extent of Taiwan’s involvement in global trade. On industrial machinery development, Taiwan has managed to preserve a sterling reputation in the global market. This Asian manufacturing powerhouse is ranked alongside the world’s top five exporters and top seven producers of machine tools used in various industries, including automotive, electronics, information and communication technology, aerospace, and large-scale infrastructure. From conventional machine tools to future production facilities Taiwan-made machine tools offer better price-performance ratio than similar ones made by other countries. Each is designed, built, and equipped entirely in- house to ensure utmost quality and machining precision. Machine tools that are exported by Taiwan can be broadly classified into two categories: Conventional machine models with classic features Sophisticated machining units (e.g., EDM, ultrasonic/laser machine tools, electrochemical grinder, photochemical milling machine, and large-scale multi-axis machine) Taiwan’s sophisticated ability in building machine tools is a product of over several decades of manufacturing experience. Locally made machining equipment, such as vertical CNC, lathe, milling machine, drill press, and grinding machine, bears the hallmark of manufacturing flexibility that only Taiwanese builders can execute flawlessly. Providing a range of machining models that meet the requirements of industrial end-users, these unsung heroes have helped put Taiwan on the global machinery map. The nation supplies various types of grinders that include cylindrical, surface, internal and centerless. These boast superior stability and rigidity, which are exactly what manufacturers of automotive gear shafts, auto components, electronics, IT gadgets, and mold dies needed. Taiwan also provides an assortment of vertical and horizontal CNC lathes. Variations in design and functionality of these types distinguish one from another. New-generation lathes also have been launched recently, which feature enhanced operations for better milling, drilling, tapping, and spindle performance. As the global manufacturing sector moves toward simplifying once complicated machining processes down to single a setup, many local machine tool builders are stepping up to the challenge. So far, improvements in machine design successfully eliminate many machining failures resulting from vibrations and drastic temperature changes. New models rolled out of several factories in Taiwan overcome the limitations of traditional machining processes. They feature optimum cutting accuracy, temperature control, and running stability, with every detail considered for modern machining. With all the advances, global manufacturers have more and better options than just conventional processes. Machine buyers could easily notice the differences. Take an EDM for example, locally made EDMs deliver excellent cutting precision, which is made possible by combining linear motor technology and the latest auto wire threading mechanism to meet multi-angle manufacturing requirements. Another good example is the drilling machine. Two types dominate the market currently: ultrasonic drilling ensures machining stability, reduces chipping, and allows micro-hole machining of hard and brittle materials, while laser (1) (2)

  6. 6. Germany’s Automotive Industry Germany's Automotive industry is one of the most important industries in the whole economy, contributing around 20 percent of all gross domestic product (GDP). The industry represents over 30 percent of passenger cars manufactured, close to 20 percent of all new registrations and boasting the largest concentration of OEM plants in Europe. By the end of 2015, the sector created a turnover of EUR 404 Billion and employing a workforce of over 792,500 workers. Germany's Automotive Industry offers a huge opportunities for local and international sales along with sourcing that has lead to a huge export success story. Germany is one of the world leaders in manufacturing, accounting for 15 percent of the world's total production. This was seen in the increased demand of German produced passenger cars and light commercial vehicles represented by EUR 384 billion in turnover at the end Section 1 AT A GLANCE 1. Germany is the the Automotive Hub of Europe and produced 5.708 million passenger cars and 375,000 commercial vehicles in 2015 2. About 77% of the manufactured vehicles are exported 3. German Automotive OEMs produced 15 million vehicles worldwide in 2015 4. The sector recorded a record turnover of EUR 384 billion and employed a workforce of over 775,000 5. There are over 40 OEM production sites located in Germany 6. 21 of the world’s top 100 automotive suppliers are German companies 7.

  7. 7. of 2015. This turnover was reflected in the production of 5.7 million passenger cars being and over 375,000 trucks and buses manufactured in 2015. Germany has achieved an export success. The domestic market generated a total revenue of EUR 133 billion. Over 77 percent of cars produced were ultimately destined for foreign countries, a new world record. This means that on a global scale, one if 5 cars produced globally is a car made by a German OEM. German OEM's have been responsible for over one third of international R&D expenditure, accounting for EUR 17.7 billion in 2014. Also, German is responsible for 60 percent of European R&D growth. Over 100,000 people work in Germany's R&D field. Global Market Perspective The demand for German produced cars has remained strong, in particular for foreign markets that continue to demand vehicles that has been increasing by 3 percent annually. Germany was the most significant exporter of passenger cars in 2014, leading both Japan and South Korea. Many of the German produced cars are exported to Germany's neighbor countries, which accounts for approximately 50 percent of exports. The USA follows with the second highest demand for German vehicles followed by Asian markets. The market for high end premium vehicles is very high in the USA and China. For many German OEM's China remains the primary and important export market for high end luxury cars. The high end German luxury production owes its thanks to its work- force, world class R&D, excellent infrastructure and its automotive heritage. The production of premium segment cars researched 36 percent of the western European light vehicle production, and is expected to grow further. There is a consensus amongst industry analysts that the premium market segment will grow faster than the total passenger car segment within the next decades. This can be due to the increased demand for high-value, premium small and compact-sized vehicles and premium SUVs. The German market can meet this increased demand. Most German based OEMs have already launched or are intending to launch new products to meet the premium market segment. With excellent product standards, sustainable development and innovation as well as the know-how based on the country's automotive manufacturer tradition. This will strengthen Germany's position as a leading hub for manufacturing. Worldwide Reputation Germany's reputation of its "Made in Germany" label is seen in a positive light, that is attributed to durability, efficiency, safety and quality.

  40. 40. The origins of the IAA can be traced back to more than 100 years. In 1897, 8 motor vehicles were exhibited to the public at the Bristol Hotel in Berlin. From these humble beginnings, a regular exhibition was established that, due to its high visitor turnout, had to be separated into an alternating exhibition of passenger cars and commercial vehicles in 1991. In odd-numbered years the IAA Cars is held in Frankfurt; even-numbered years see the IAA Commercial Vehicles in Hannover. The automotive world meets at the IAA Commercial Vehicles. It is the world’s leading trade fair for mobility, transportation and logistics. Its comprehensive innovations, exhibitors from several industries, discussions and, last but not least, the expert visitor structure represent a unique profile. The IAA Commercial Vehicles is special because practically all the suppliers are represented alongside the manufacturers. The IAA is therefore the world’s only mobility fair which represents the entire commercial vehicle industry along the whole value-added chain, providing the best conditions for good business. With its broad spectrum the IAA provides a comprehensive overview of the international commercial vehicle industry: Section 1 AT A GLANCE 1. Date: September 14-25th, 2017 2.

The goal of the initiative is to map out digitization, new logistic concepts, offers and services of the exhibitors in the commercial vehicles sector even more clearly and to address new companies and visitor groups. “The New Mobility World logistics aims to create a content framework that fosters discussion and new contacts. After all, new and future- oriented themes are distinctly more dialogue-intensive”, said Matthias Wissmann, President of the VDA, talking about the further development of the IAA in Hanover. The content of the conceptual framework will be mapped by the five thematic areas of Connected Vehicle, Assisted & Automated Driving, Alternative Powertrain, Urban Logistics and Transport Services. Within this framework there will be various programs presenting these thematic fields and the matching products of the IAA exhibitors. They will include a separate congress programme with discussion forums, such as for instance the carIT Congress, and events focusing on “Last Mile” topics or networked and automated driving. On the “Pitching Day” for start-up companies young enterprises will for the first time be given an opportunity to present their ideas and solutions at the IAA and establish contacts with the commercial vehicle industry. All the events will take place in the congress section in Hall 19 and be accompanied by exhibitions with opportunities for non-industry companies and start-ups to make presentations too. In addition, the IAA exhibitors can participate in guided tours round the IAA that reflect their themes. Innovations, services and products can thus be presented appropriately. Interested visitors from the specific target group will be taken to the exhibitors’ stands on such tours. In the “New Mobility World LIVE” demonstration area, exhibitors will be presenting products, services and applications in live demonstrations. Trial drives with electric commercial vehicles will also be possible. Page 41
