Taiwan’s machine tool industry, with its innovative offerings, will be accessible to everyone across the globe from November 10, 2020, as the Taiwan International Machine Tool Show (TMTS) 2020, hosted by the Taiwan Machine Tool and Accessory Builder’s Association (TMBA), has been changed to online exhibition, TMTS Virtual.
Over the past 10 years, with the joint efforts of the government and the industry, Taiwan’s machine tools have earned a place in the international markets through their outstanding manufacturing quality and performance. The country’s machine tools have been serving as a brand and express the spirit of ‘high-tech, precision, innovation, global service, advancement and flexibility’ in the
Establishing a new model of smart manufacturing
The short-chain revolution and the US-China trade war have caused Manufacturing industries to migrate. The previously expected economic recovery was delayed by the novel coronavirus pandemic, which has forced global manufacturing industries to move towards digitalization.
Taiwan’s machine tool manufacturers such as YCM, Goodway and Campro, etc. use IoT technology to transfer real-time information in the workshop including data such as production progress and machine operation status. Advanced applications such as monitoring dashboard and mobile devices are employed to achieve remote control and management (RCM). Their personnel can solve real-time problem without frequently entering the workshop. Also, by browsing split-screen, more machines can be managed with lesser manpower. In addition to RCM, the use of augmented reality (AR) under a 5G technical environment also provides the industry a non-contact management model. Via AR remote, manufacturers’ support experts can provide online troubleshooting or repair assistance for the equipment by visual instructions, which can replace physical inspection in the workshop. For manufacturers, preventative and predictive maintenance not only reduce unnecessary daily maintenance costs, but also improve the inspection accuracy or predict when a production bottleneck or machine failure occurs.
personnel and automated devices to meet requirements. Nowadays, we are in a special era where establishing a new management model for any manufacturer is especially important. With a solid foundation base, Taiwan’s Machine Tool industry has seized the opportunity to quickly transform to smart manufacturing, occupying an important position in the global industrial chain with the advantage of combining the resources of supply chain and the markets. As the Covid-19 pandemic spreads around the world, the Taiwan International Machine Tool Show (TMTS) 2020, hosted by the Taiwan Machine Tool and Accessory Builder’s Association (TMBA), has been changed to TMTS Virtual, an online exhibition. TMTS Virtual will commence on November 10 this year and will showcase the latest products, allowing global buyers to interact with exhibitors without any constraint of time zones and boundaries. The virtual show will be held on the website — virtual.tmts.tw.
