umati has new partner Victor Taichung Machinery Works Co., Ltd.

Vic­tor Taichung Machinery Works is now part of the umati community 

What expect­a­tions do you have of umati, what do you expect from the partnership? 

We aim to reduce com­mu­nic­a­tion costs between equip­ment man­u­fac­tur­ers and users, and exped­ite the devel­op­ment and install­a­tion of

IoT (Inter­net of Things) for man­u­fac­tur­ing equip­ment through the umati inter­face standard.

What advant­ages does umati offer your com­pany and your customers? 

By hav­ing a com­mon com­mu­nic­a­tion found­a­tion, vari­ous equip­ment in dif­fer­ent indus­tries are allowed to con­nect to each oth­er on the same platform,

mak­ing data trans­mis­sion between machine tools, product man­age­ment sys­tems, etc. simple and fast, Become the driv­ing force for the growth of auto­ma­tion equipment.

How do you eval­u­ate the expan­sion of the umati ini­ti­at­ive to the entire mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing industry?

umati stand­ard­izes the inform­a­tion of IoT inter­faces, exped­it­ing the integ­ra­tion pro­cess of smart factor­ies. This facil­it­ates the accel­er­ated devel­op­ment of vari­ous smart applications.

In the future, both machinery man­u­fac­tur­ers and man­u­fac­tur­ing oper­at­ors can enhance equip­ment value or optim­ize pro­duc­tion pro­cesses through value-added applic­a­tions on this plat­form. This is com­mend­able progress.

About Vic­tor Taichung Machinery 

Vic­tor Taichung Machinery, ded­ic­ated to tech­no­lo­gic­al innov­a­tion and high-qual­ity products, con­tin­ues to devel­op the next gen­er­a­tion of CNC machine tools. In response to the trends of Industry 4.0 and the sus­tain­able devel­op­ment of busi­nesses, Vic­tor Taichung Machinery has inves­ted NT$3.5 bil­lion to acquire land and build a facil­ity in the Taichung City Pre­ci­sion Machinery Innov­a­tion Tech­no­logy Park. The facil­ity cov­ers nearly 9,400 square meters, includ­ing the headquar­ters build­ing and smart fact­ory, with a total con­struc­tion area of 17,300 square meters.

With­in the facil­ity, four Industry V4.0 intel­li­gent auto­mated machin­ing pro­duc­tion lines, eight smart assembly lines, elev­ated auto­mat­ic ware­hous­ing, and AGV unmanned trans­port vehicles have been imple­men­ted. The integ­ra­tion of IoT with ERP, APS, MES, and oth­er sys­tems is util­ized, and a situ­ation room has been estab­lished to effi­ciently con­vey inform­a­tion. This enables real-time mon­it­or­ing of the fact­ory’s pro­duc­tion pro­gress, provid­ing feed­back to the coordin­a­tion cen­ter. Super­visors can util­ize man­age­ment based on data, shift­ing from tra­di­tion­al exper­i­en­tial decision-mak­ing to data-assisted decision-mak­ing, thereby improv­ing their adapt­ab­il­ity and redu­cing the risk of erro­neous decision-mak­ing by each man­age­ment team.
