"Link" and "Optimization" are the core spirits of Industry 4.0. To create these two key elements, it requires extensive use of automated production, Internet of Things, intelligent robots, supply chain interconnection, and big data.
Taiwan Industrial Development
The prosperity of Taiwan's early foundry industry created an economic glory. In recent years, large OEMs have transformed into automation, and as the production line's high-precision assembly and processing procedures have become more complex, the demand for automation is increasing, but when it is "automated" The integration with "robots" will no longer be two purely technical applications. When they complement each other, they will be upgraded to "intelligent" motorization and become the best help for Taiwan's smart manufacturing and machinery industry development.
Taiwan ’s machinery industry grows at a rate of NT $ 100 billion annually. The Machinery Association released the 2019 machinery equipment export statistics this year (2020). The cumulative export value reached USD $ 27.8 billion, and the total output value remained at 1.1 trillion yuan (USD $ 35.245 billion). It is more optimistic that this year 2020 will see an increase of 100 billion yuan (about 3.3 billion US dollars) and an annual increase in export value of 5% to 10%, of which the export value of the main export of machine tools can reach 10%. In early 2020, despite the impact of the new coronary pneumonia epidemic on the export of machinery and equipment, it is expected that the market will have strong demand for equipment, and orders will explode in April and May, and the order will explode. Once the boom in the second half of the year will be an opportunity for the Taiwan machinery industry. On the other hand, Taiwan has already emerged internationally in the industrial collaborative robot market. Taking the example of Taiwan ’s local robot, Daming Robot, it has jumped to second place in the global market share in 2018, second only to Denmark ’s Universal Robots.
Taiwan Industrial Upgrading
Taiwan has the inherent advantages of developing intelligent automation technology and has accumulated a deep background. Taking TM12, which won the 28th Taiwan Excellence Award, as an example, it is the world ’s first "eye" collaborative robot that can engage in object shapes and positions., Barcode, color identification, and has a smart visual positioning, suitable for semiconductors, panels, CNC industry, etc. Japan ’s Fuji Keizai released a forecast that by 2025, the global industrial robot market will expand to 2.5 times in 2018, reaching 2.87 trillion yen (26.7 billion US dollars). The market size of collaborative robots will reach 411 billion yen ($ 3.828 billion) in 2025, seven times that of 2018. The automation equipment imported into AI artificial intelligence system, in addition to providing customers with diverse production line automation solutions, is also the trend of future automation production lines.
On the other hand, the machine tool called "working machine" is also a representative of Taiwan's industrial strength. Under the development trend of Industry 4.0, how to monitor and control all the components of tool machinery while improving productivity, thereby achieving optimization and increasing profits? The same application of intelligence in high-end machine tools, the Daforo i4.0 machine tool intelligent monitoring system won the 28th Taiwan Excellence Award, which can meet this demand. After installing the i4.0 machine tool intelligent monitoring system, the machine monitors all the consumables of the machine, which can quickly retrieve data and data, and provide a large number of useful reference data for managers after analysis, thereby ensuring the high reliability of the production line machine, High precision, at the same time understand the life of the product, and then achieve energy and process control.
Delta, a Taiwanese award-winning enterprise that also achieves smart automation, has also extended its transformation into the smart manufacturing industry and created a full range of smart manufacturing solutions. The capacity of customized smart factories can be effectively increased by 70% compared to traditional production lines, and the direct labor per capita output increased by 3 to 5 times and reduced the area of production and use by about 35%, perfectly interpreting the core spirit of Industry 4.0-"Optimizing production processes and manufacturing capabilities", improving efficiency, reducing costs, and helping companies create higher competitive advantages.
In response to the needs of global manufacturing transformation and upgrading, in the past few years, Taiwan has joined forces with the relevant ministries, such as the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Ministry of Education, industry associations, and local governments to work together to promote the smart machinery industry and become the fastest and most developed. Achievements in key industries. With Taiwan ’s strong talents for R&D and innovative technology, Taiwan is gradually moving towards the kingdom of smart machinery manufacturing. The long-term goal is to become a global smart machinery R&D and manufacturing base and solution provider, establish China ’s smart machinery ecosystem, and promote metal electromechanical, Key industries such as Minsheng Chemical, electronic information, and information services have been introduced into smart manufacturing. Taiwan's smart machinery and Taiwan's smart manufacturing will be the best help to promote the upgrading of global manufacturing power.
