Taiwan Machine Tools: Powering Indonesia’s Automotive Supply Chain with Smart Manufacturing

Taiwan Machine Tools: Powering Indonesia’s Automotive Supply Chain with Smart Manufacturing

Product Launch at Manufacturing Indonesia 2016 (Nov. 30th)

Hall A 3216-3317, Jakarta International Expo

Nov. 17, 2016 | Jakarta, Indonesia – Representatives of several world’s leading machine tools and accessories makers from Taiwan will present their latest products and innovations at the Taiwan Product Launch, which will take part in conjunction with the Product Application Demo Show during the Manufacturing Indonesia 2016 at the Jakarta International Expo Center. The events aim to enhance the local manufacturing sectors’ competitive edge, especially the automotive sector in Indonesia. Organized by the Bureau of Foreign Trade (BOFT), Ministry of Economic Affairs, and implemented by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and Coperate Synerngy Development Center (CSD), the product launch will serve as a major platform to showcase the best technologies that have been driving the metalworking market forward.

Mr. Simon Wang, the executative vice president of Taiwan External Trade Development Council, stressed that Taiwan has remained one of the major suppliers of machine tools to the Indonesia market in the past five years. Imports of Taiwan-made machine tools in 2015, for instance, reached 79.68 million, which made the nation Indonesia’s third biggest supplier of machine tools, accounting for 13.41% of its total annual imports, which value 594.197 million US dollars. Looking into the future, Taiwan will assume the role of a major supplier of machine tools and parts to the global market, particularly meeting increasing demands in Indonesia.

Taiwan’s machine tool development focuses mainly on machine centers and CNC lathes, and provides relatively better cost-performance ratios and quality on par with that from Japan, but at cost at only 85%. Of the total lathes and turning machines rolled out in the January-December period last year, Indonesia absorbed around US$ 76.88 million worth of such equipment. Taiwan accounted for 14.89% of the total, valuing at US$ 11.44 million. As for machining centers, Indonesia imported a total of USD$ 62.22 million during the same period, with Taiwan supplying 16.04% of its requirements in this regard, or some US$9.97 million. Exports of machining center from Taiwan to Indonesia were the 2nd highest last year, whereas exports of lathes and turning machines from Taiwan to Indonesia ranked 2nd highest in the year.

Against a global economic backdrop of what the head of the International Monetary Fund described as a “new mediocre” period of sluggish growth, the real GDP growth rate in Indonesia this year is predicted to go up slightly to 4.9 percent. This could partly be attributed to the move of the Indonesian government last April to release its 12th economic policy package, which was designed to attract fresh investment and spur market activities. The Indonesian government has listed vehicle manufacturing and assembly as a key industry for development in the next five years, hoping to become Southeast Asia’s largest center for vehicle assembly. The nation has also set its sights on promoting local manufacturing of auto parts and components, with forging, casting, and stamping processes being the main areas to boost growth in production of assorted metal goods.


Taiwan’s machine tools may be adopted in manufacturing of automobiles, aerospace vehicles, consumer electronics, molds, and various mechanical components.  Taiwanese machine tool companies have already proven themselves in the automobile industry through their provision of automated manufacturing cells and production lines, which comprise integrated machine tool and automation facilities (like robotic arms).

The Taiwan machine tool industry, with its host of metal processing/manufacturing technology and rich international service experience, can surely become an indispensable partner for Indonesia’s automobile parts processing and manufacturing companies. To facilitate partnership, the Taiwan Product Application Demo has invited 8 well-known Taiwanese machine tool manufacturers to demonstrate their respective auto part products and assembly techniques.

Products and manufacturing companies to be featured include Tongtai, who will showcase engine cylinder head; Honor Seiki, who will display brake discs, steering knuckles and wheel hubs for auto transmission systems; Chin Fong, who will present engine transmission shaft, car seat parts, and seat belt latch; YCM and Accutex, who will present auto lamp mold; and SEYI, who will showcase stamping process for large-sized auto sheet metal parts, such as A pillar, B pillar, and bumper.

The event will also focus on the current trend in automated processing, which may alleviate the impact of rising minimum wages in Indonesia. Taiwanese companies such as Hiwin Technologies and Chandox have been invited to demonstrate their automated manufacturing cells during the event.

All enterprises in the business of auto components and metal processing as well as those from Indonesia who are interested in knowing more about the Taiwan machine tool industry are encouraged to attend the event. The exhibition, to be held for 4 days, starts Nov. 30, 2016, 10am, at the Jakarta International Expo, Kemayoran-Jakarta Hall A3 3216-3317. Let Taiwan’s high quality, well priced auto part manufacturing facilities and techniques forge profitable manufacturing solutions for Indonesia’s auto part processors and manufacturers.

Besides, visit the Taiwanese exhibitors’ display area at Manufacturing Indonesia 2016 and experience an unprecedented opportunity to explore world-class innovations and technologies from over 117 Taiwanese machine-related companies.
