Data-driven manufacturing was the stated theme, but Taiwan’s largest metalworking exhibition was also an excellent showcase for the automated equipment that this technology supports.
There wasn’t much time to examine the intricate lotus blossoms lining the halls of the show floor before a blaring speaker called the diverse pack of reporters to attention. Italy, Germany, Turkey, Brazil, South Korea, Mexico—all these countries and more were represented among the eager faces of the international trade press, waiting with notepads and cameras ready for the week’s first formal appointment. All had been invited to Taiwan’s largest metalworking trade show largely to see technology innovations like the one touted by the man with the microphone: a networked cell with machines automatically adjusting parameters based on real-time sensor feedback.

ACROSS THE CHOPPY WATERS from mainland China in Taiwan’s capital of Taipei, a bold wind of creativity spurred on everyone from whiskey makers to IT innovators.
Last fall the government initiated a high-tech project to rival America’s Silicon Valley under a new scheme dubbed “the Asian Silicon Valley,” a masterful economic plan to be completed by 2023 in neighboring Taoyuan City. A $357.9 million budget has already been slated this year alone to help startups and research and development for internet industries. Meanwhile, the Taiwanese whiskey distiller Kavalan earned a reputation among whiskey connoisseurs as the world’s best. In 2015 Kavalan’s Solist Vinho Barrique earned the title “World’s Best Single Malt Whisky” from the prestigious World Whiskies Awards.
But Taipei hasn’t always enjoyed this sweet smell of success.
