Manufacturing activity in Taiwan showed signs of recovery in March. Orders rose 1.92 billion, which is in line with average monthly order of 1.9-2.0 billion.
Wang Cheng-ching, secretary general of the Taiwan Association of Machinery Industry (TAMI), said, “The market has bounced back. There will be a significant improvement in orders and shipments in Q2.
Besides, the value of New Taiwan dollar has fallen more than that of Japanese yen and South Korean won lately. The sharp currency devaluation would make Taiwan exports appear cheaper and more competitive.”
The nation’s machinery makers should lead in the era of “Industry 4.0” to avoid wasting resources, the head of the Taiwan Association of Machinery Industry (TAMI, 台灣機械公會) said yesterday, adding a call for close collaboration among research institutes, academia and the government.
“The industrial end is the side that knows where the demands are,” TAMI chairman Alex Ko (柯拔希) said on the sidelines of the Taipei Manufacturing Technology Show at the Taipei World Trade Center’s Nangang Exhibition Hall.
The 12th MTduo, organized by TAITRA and TAMI will be held from May 5thto 8th in Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, Hall 1. There are 270 international and domestic exhibitors using 1,063 booths to showcase the newest manufacturing machineries and technologies, including Industrial Robots, Machine Components & Accessories, Control System, Information and System Integrator, CAD/CAM Soft/Hard Ware, Inspection & Measurement, 3D Printing, etc.

Taiwanese machine tool makers Goodway Machine Corp (程泰機械) and Tongtai Machine and Tool Co (東台精機) yesterday said that orders and demand are on the rise, indicating that the nation’s machine tool industry is recovering from last year’s slump.
Goodway Machine, which makes computerized numerical control latches, said that orders from the automobile and aviation sectors picked up in the past two months. The company has received about NT$500 million (US$15.43 million) in orders for lathes, which are expected to cover its capacity for two months, it said.
A REVOLUTION:Making the sensors for the coming automated industry revolution could see Taiwan form part of the core market for 50 years, the Hiwin chairman said
Taiwan’s leading machinery maker, Hiwin Technologies Co (上銀科技), on Saturday said its new products — the keys to developing “Industry 4.0” — are expected to start volume production next year.
The company said it is in talks with local machinery and semiconductor associations on any future collaboration in Industry 4.0, especially in the integrated circuit (IC) industry.

Can Taiwan get back on the tech map with a fresh outlook on new kinds of startups? The answer could be yes, at least judging from some early indications of efforts underway to jumpstart Taiwan’s tech economy.
Anyone who thinks that Taiwan lacks tech talent should keep in mind its core long-time focus on semiconductors, a field this nation has owned for decades. And they should know that it was Taiwanese engineering that contributed to the original design for Tesla electric vehicles — and that is developing clones of the Tesla today.
