Metal pressing and plastics injection molding are two important manufacture procedures in the production of parts for automotive, motorcycle, bicycle, and 3C items. As long as the lifetime of products are shortened and the demand for customization surges, the trend of small volume but large variety production is the ongoing trend in the era of smart production and Industry 4.0.
The forerunner of automatic mold/ die change systems, President Hsiao of Forwell, stated that in order to keep up with the trend of smart production, Forwell has integrated QDCS/ QMCS with smart concept for factory owners. Currently he further imported the concept of “Productivity 4.0” (Industry 4.0) into corporate development, developing “Automatic Smart QDCS/ QMCS Factory Facility”, which can satisfy the need of small volume but large variety production model in the automotive, motorcycle, bicycle, and 3C sectors, achieving higher productivity, lower cost, managed stock reserves, and JIT production. With Forwell’s help, corporate can be more competitive, and advanced in quality and process.
Hsiao explained that, the concept of Productivity 4.0 is to integrate machinery with information, reporting the processing data, utilization data, maintenance data to the control center for the sake of smart automation.
Hsiao shared that Forwell automatic QDCS and QMCS factory facility is with recording and reporting functions. The facility can transfer mold/ die data to the control center, and later when those data are combined with IoT, “Smart QDCS/ QMCS” are thus achieved. In order to keep up with the trend of smart production, Forwell will integrate the company’s R&D steps with “Productivity 4.0” (Industry4.0).
Now Forwell is enthusiastic in the development of “Automatic Smart QDCS/ QMCS Factory Facility”; the company can offer mold/ die transmission system in mass production (cart system), and can offer an integrated production line containing automatic change, transmission, delivering, storing, and maintenance. The system is innovative in both Taiwan and Mainland China.
