As electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles gradually gain popularity in the market, automotive electronic systems may become the key technology areas that are most valued by various electronic system suppliers. Advances in technologies such as electronic active suspension technology and electric vehicle drive systems in the automotive industry have continued to expand the application of power electronic systems in the automotive field.
Electronic components are divided into two categories, active and passive; the difference lies in whether or not power is required to drive them. Semiconductor components driven by an electric circuit, such as transistors and diodes are often referred to as active components, while components which play a supporting role, such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, etc. are often referred to as passive. In recent years, a short supply of passive components in the market has drawn market attention to Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCCs). Because capacitance value is proportional to the surface area of the capacitor, the number of layers in a capacitor will affect the capacitance of the capacitor. Due to developments in ceramic film stacking technology, the capacitance value of MLCCs has increased significantly, and they are gradually replacing medium and low capacitance tantalum capacitors.
The Printed Circuit Board (PCB) is one of the main parts of all electronic products. The application fields of PCB are quite extensive. Wherever electronic components are used, PCBs are almost always used. Currently, they are mainly used in the fields of information, communication, consumer products, automobiles, aerospace and military, precision instruments and industrial products. They are an indispensable basic part of all electronic products. This article will be divided into several aspects to discuss PCBs, namely type, material, process, installation and welding. Let us have a good understanding of the "mother of the electronics industry" – the PCB.
According to GLOBAL TRADE ALTAS statistics, the boom of the rubber and plastics industry has rebounded due to the growth of the aerospace and automotive industries and the market demand for consumer goods. With the economic growth of Asian countries, the Asia-Pacific region has become the largest and fastest-growing region in the world's plastic and rubber industry. About 40% of plastic and rubber machinery is manufactured in Asia. The fourth industrial revolution combines machinery and information and communication, both of which are the most advantageous industries in Taiwan. Taiwan's plastic and rubber machinery industry combines these two advantages and applies smart manufacturing new business models to strengthen competitive advantages and seek to create niche points. New business opportunities have brought Taiwan's plastics and rubber machinery industry to a new peak.
Most of the transmission components used in the feed system used in precision machinery today use ball screws and linear slide rails, which can bring excellent feed positioning accuracy to the linear transmission. In fact, "transmission components" are not only "ball screws" or "linear slides", but the real "transmission components", because they are not only related to manufacturing, but also appear in life all the time.
Powder metallurgy uses metal powder as raw material, and forms it into a desired shape using a special processing technology. This processing technology is very similar to that used in the production of ceramics, so powder metallurgy techniques can also be used for the preparation and production of ceramic materials. This article will introduce the relevant technology of the powder metallurgy process in detail, and help the reader understand the advantages and disadvantages of the powder metallurgy process.

Market surveys of the bicycle industry supply chains have found that since the outbreak of the pandemic in 2020, the average price of upstream raw materials has increased by nearly 50%.
A hand tool is any tool that uses hand force or twisting to power the tool, by rather than one powered by a motor. There are a variety of hand tools including screwdrivers, wrenches, hammers and much more! Let’s find out!
It's that time of year again, check out the predictions for the most promising emerging technology trends to watch for in 2022. Pay close attention to the following topics as they will be covered in details to see what is happening around the globe.
Technology today is evolving at a rapid pace, and these changes and progress have resulted in an even greater acceleration of change. One of the greatest areas of change that has come about as a result of COVID-19 outbreak is IT technologies. IT professionals have come to realize that their role will not stay the same in the contactless world of tomorrow.
The automobile industry is a technology- and capital-intensive industry, and its industrial chain is quite large, affecting a wide range of related industries. The upstream of the automobile industry is about production of auto parts, such as lights, tires, sheet metal, aluminum alloy steel rims, hoods, bumpers, and others; midstream is vehicle assembly, repair and technical services; downstream is sales, import and export business.
Many people do not understand what a mold is. A mold (sometimes called a mould) is a block of material with a hollowed-out cavity that has a shape cut into sides of the cavity. Liquid or pliable material is pushed into the cavity where it adopts the shape of the hollowed out section. After the liquid hardens or sets inside the mold, or the pliable material has been pressed into the shape of the mold, the item is removed from the mold. Molds are made from a variety of materials, such as metal, clay, or wood, and can be used to form items out of many types of materials such as plastics or metals.
The Metaverse is bringing virtual gamers to a wireless sci-fi vision with an infinite number of virtual worlds. However, you will find some transformation and benefits in how manufacturers can be more productive in the digital and physical worlds.
In recent years, Sustainable Development Goals (SDRs), Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), and Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) are terms that have become more and more frequently heard among international companies and listed OTC companies. Their evaluation scores have become increasingly important to supply chains and consumers, and have become indicators for corporate evaluation and financial planning. In addition to manufacturing regulations, companies are paying more attention to corporate governance information and CSR reports. Whether in the service industry, catering and food industry, financial industry, real estate construction industry, hospitals and government agencies, colleges and universities, or global SMEs, companies have stepped up to contribute to "sustainable development".
