  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. Overview of the Japanese Automotive Industry The Japanese Automotive Industry is one of the leading and largest automotive industries around the globe. Since the 1960’s Japan, has been part of the top three largest automotive producing countries. During the 1970’s, Japan pioneered the robotics in the automotive industry, being the first to mass introduce robotics in the manufacturing of vehicles. Throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s, Japan was developing its industry so rapidly it overtook the U.S. as the leading producers of automobiles with over 13 million cars manufactured per year. Today, Japan remains one of the leader producers, however it has been surpassed by Chinas rapid growth during the early 2000’s. Over the last few decades Japan’s automotive sector’s investments outside of Japan has helped grow new automotive industries in developing countries. Section 1 AT A GLANCE 1. Automotive Industry began during the 1910’s 2. Toyota became the worlds largest automotive producer in 2008 3. Pioneered Robotics Manufacturing in the 1970’s 4. Japan has expanded from its domestic manufacturing to setting up plants throughout the world, such as in Thailand. Japan Automotive Industry Overview Page 5
  7. 7. Japan first began manufacturing automobiles in the middle to late 1910’s by either designing their own vehicles or partnering with European brands to produce and sell their cars under a Japanese license. Examples of this included Isuzu partnering with Wolseley Motors, and the Mitsubishi Model A that was based on the Fiat Tipo 3. The demand for vehicles in Japan greatly increased by the Japanese Military expansion prior to World War II, which forced many manufacturers to begin designing their own vehicles. Today Japan is home to a large number of automobile manufacturers that include Daihatsu, Mitsubishi, Mitsuoka, Mazda, Nissan, Suzuki, Subaru, Toyota, Honda and Isuzu. These brands are well known throughout the world as affordable and reliable automobiles. Japan’s global market share in the manufacturing of automobiles has slowly declined over recent years, as emerging markets from South Africa to China have started manufacturing vehicles. This however has not hindered the Japanese automotive industry from expanding, to the extent that Toyota surpassed General Motors in the first quarters of 2008 to become the worlds largest automotive manufacturer. Today, the automotive industry remains one of the countries most profitable exports and the cornerstone of a recovery plan from the most recent economic crisis. Industry Trend Over the last decade, the Japanese economy has been in a state of stagnation which greatly reduced the number of national car sales. Japanese automotive manufacturers began looking oversees for new markets and manufacturing locations. With a continued demand for overseas expansion and only modest growth in Japan, manufacturers will remain focused on producing and selling their branded vehicles to new markets as well as increase their manufacturing presence in foreign countries. Japanese manufacturers make decisions based on long-term basis so in is unlikely that they will change their overseas expansion strategy soon. Page 6
