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.
