An exemplary display of top-notch technological advancements, and modern automation equipment, Taiwan Excellence brought some of its most cutting-edge and up-to-date products to the Automation Expo 2022 in Mumbai — India’s biggest and Asia’s second largest automation expo that started from August 16.
For the first time, Taiwan Excellence had put up a physical pavilion with five top most Taiwanese automation solution providers, including Advantech, GMT Global, HIWIN, TOYO and Techman Robot. The pavilion offered a glimpse into Taiwan’s automation industry, the precise manufacturing techniques, massive ICT technologies and production optimization solutions such as articulated robots, strain wave gears, desktop robots, high rigidity tiny cylinders, electric cylinders, two-fingers electric grippers, embedded computing systems, fanless embedded box PCs and all-in-one touch computers & kiosks.
In addition to the pavilion, Taiwan Excellence’s product launch session — ‘The Future of Automation is Here’ remained the highlight of the first day. In addition to offering insights about Taiwan’s most progressive automation companies, the session emphasized on how Taiwan’s automation industry helps build high efficiency, high flexibility, and high rigidity product lines in reasonable costs.
In the session, Advantech introduced the applications of its industrial computing systems and AI equipment on production lines, and showed how the company helped customers import industry 4.0 for improving performance; HIWIN presented their IIoT based machines and components, with the characteristic of IoT, operators can check the operation and wearing condition of machines, and prevent malfunction happens during production; Techman Robot explained how traditional manufacturing such as metal processing and plastic molding industries applies collaborative robots to realize automatic production and inspection; Toyo introduced its linear slides and compact robots, their compact size and high accuracy can simplify the process of USB drive assembling and semiconductor production, and improve the efficiency of production and inspection.
Making an opening remark in the product launch, Mr. Poyi Edison Hsu, Director of Taipei World Trade Centre Liaison in Mumbai, said, “Taiwan’s automation industry integrates precision machinery technologies and modern ICT applications to provide a wide variety of smart manufacturing solutions. These come with reasonable prices and high quality to meet different production demands, from mass production to “small amount, large variety” needs. Therefore, if India’s manufacturing industries hope to reach their full potentials, Taiwan can be the best partner”
The Indian industrial automation market was valued at USD 10.72 billion in 2021, and it is expected to reach USD 23.09 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 14.26% over the forecast period (2022 – 2027).
