Taiwan Machinery Became the Manufacturing Industry Flagship in Indonesia
Manufacturing industry sector in Indonesia at this time is suspected to be back to the growth phase. This situation is of course very welcomed by the domestic manufacturing industry companies, thus making them re-excited ramped up production.
One of the factors that can help the production increase is the Taiwan manufacturing machine use. In terms of price, the domestic manufacturing industry can save as much as 30 percent when compared to using manufacturing machinery from Japan or Europe. Yet in terms of quality accuracy, precision, and durability, machines from Taiwan can be compared.
Director of PT. Toyo Presisi Indonesia, Chandra Aknal also admitted that. At the present, the company, which produces mold and dies casting, uses machines from Taiwan, such as CNC Milling Machine from brand Wele, with SB216, AA1365, and AQ1050 type. The machine has three capacities, small at a price of 100 thousand US dollars, medium capacity at 130 thousand US dollars, and a large capacity at a price of 250 thousand US dollars.
“The price comparison is if the Japanese machine is 100 percent than the machine from Taiwan is only 70 percent. The Japanese and European machines do have a good durability and precision, but the Taiwanese machine also gets the same thing, and the most important thing is the cheapness," Chandra said when met at his office, Cikarang, West Java.
Those Taiwanese manufacturing machines are very easy to operate and the most important thing is the after sales service that is so fast response and not complicated. According to Chandra experience, when the engine is damaged, in two days the machine can operate again.
“Many businessmen and manufacturers are ordering Taiwanese manufacturing machinery. Indonesia is one of the countries that often order. Besides electronic and IT products, Taiwanese manufacturing machinery is also well-known and best-selling. We are also ready to add one more machine at a price of 390 thousand US dollars,” He said
