In order to assist the industry step into Industry 4.0 and enhance global competitiveness, Forwell Machinery has introduced what they have developed for many years the “Factory Automation Die Change System”. This system aims to ultimately solve a company’s need for saving labor, saving working time, reducing production costs, stabilizing quality, enhancing production efficiency and solving technical personnel shortage problem.
The Chairman Xiao Wen Long indicates, Forwell’s ultimate product development goal is complete “Factory Quick Die Change”, starting from the first stage “Machine Quick Die Change System”, the second stage “Mold Conveying System”, and finally into the third stage ”Mold Management System”.
Xiao Wen Long states, “Mold Management” is a crucial concept regarding the Quick Die Change System, and it is a management system with the core concept built on “quickly finding the required Mold, and preserving the mold”. Providing people in the industry with fast, accurate, safe mold exchange and maintenance can also benefit production efficiency. “Mold Management” can always be adopted, and the earlier it is adopted the easier it will be for the management.
“Mold Management Systems” focuses on the development of two major systems, “Die Automatic Storage Systems” and “Die Maintenance Systems”. In lieu of large scale facilities and factory space, this requires initial system planning before construction and the reservation of extra space. The first system is completely customized equipment, where you must plan and design according to the different demands of Die Storage, and the second system is to maintain the die so that it achieves a longer service life. After the system has been built, it can assist companies to completely solve the problems of massive die storage and can quickly access all of your dies. This effectively enhances production efficiency, reduces inventory, and allows mold operations to become much easier and safer.
The rapid development of “Mold Management Systems” for a range of factory equipment has allowed it to enter the domestic and cross-strait markets. The main function of the newly constructed Huai'an factory is for the development of Die Storage Systems, Die Maintenance Systems, Standard Mold Components, and other related products of the mold production management system. It is estimated that the new factory will be capable of creating an output value of NT$2.5 billion, and at the same time be fully prepared for future developments of industrial robots and for a listing on the mainland China GEM market.
