台灣工具機設備商創新 支援電動車智慧製造未來 Taiwan’s machine tool makers leading the way to an EV future




目前全球正面臨極端氣候的挑戰,為了早日實現淨零碳排的目標,許多國家制定了燃油車禁售年限,電動車製造成為下一個產業關鍵戰場,聚集了工具機製造巨頭的台灣,又做了什麼樣的創新改變來迎戰?
With the world facing the climate crisis, many countries have set deadlines to phase out gasoline vehicles to reach carbon emissions targets. Electric vehicle manufacturing is becoming the next key industrial battleground. With its cluster of leading machine tool makers, what innovations does Taiwan have to meet the challenge?

瀧澤科技總經理:「後疫期時代,一機多工機種將成趨勢。」
Taiwan Takisawa General Manager: In the post-pandemic world, multitasking machines will be the trend.

瀧澤科技總經理Winston Tai表示:「面對全球電動車需求,瀧澤率先投入智慧加工生產線的開發,持續提供客戶完整自動化生產線,可以做到自動檢測、自動補正、預兆檢知,協助傳統汽車加工業者建置電動車關鍵零組件生產,切入供應鏈。」Tai繼續說道:「後疫期和少子化缺工的時代,對於傳統單一功能標準機需求勢必銳減,瀧澤決定率先加速開發一機多工機種。」
Taiwan Takisawa General Manager Winston Tai said, “Facing the global electric vehicle demand, Taiwan Takisawa has stepped up investment in smart production line research and development. We continue to provide customers with complete automated production lines that can carry out detection, correction and advance warning by themselves. These help traditional automotive machining companies to start producing key electric vehicle components and get into the supply chain.” Tai continued, “With labor shortages in a post-pandemic, low-birthrate age, the demand for traditional single-function machines is bound to decrease, so Taiwan Takisawa decided to step up development of multitasking machines with multiple functions.”
 
斥資上億開發研究,利用高度自製的核心優勢,瀧澤推陳多款五軸、雙主軸雙刀塔、立式車銑複合工具機種與超精密車床,滿足一機多工需求,克服進度最複雜耗時與種類最多的製程,充份掌握品質與可靠度交期;此外,電動車(新能源車) 帶動鋰電池需求走強,鋰電池銅箔需求提升,瀧澤科技近年來也一直加強開發新PCB鑽孔機及PCB成型機,為銅箔廠的客戶提升製造效能的助力。
Investing hundreds of millions into research and development, and using its core advantage of making things itself, Taiwan Takisawa has introduced a variety of five-axis, double-spindle and double-turret, vertical turning and milling machine tools and high-precision lathes, meeting the demand for multitasking machines and overcoming the most complicated and time-consuming schedules with the most diverse processes to ensure product quality and reliability of delivery. In addition, with electric vehicles (new energy vehicles) driving strong demand for lithium-ion batteries, there is increased demand for copper foil for these batteries. Taiwan Takisawa in recent years has stepped up development of new PCB drills and PCB forming machines to increase manufacturing efficiency for customers that make copper foil.

協易機械副總經理:「協易伺服沖床滿足電動車的輕量化車殼需求,一次到位。」
Seyi Deputy General Manager: SEYI’s servo presses meet the demand for lightweight electric vehicle bodies, in one place
 
協易機械生產的伺服沖床設備,擁有世界最頂尖的技術,位列電動車龍頭大廠的生產製造陣容。但在汽車轉往電動車的轉換中,看似不需做太大變化的車殼,其實為了因應電動車輕量化需求,供應商也同樣必須去摸索新材料的使用。
SEYI’s servo press equipment has the world’s best technology and is used by leading electric vehicle manufacturers. In the changeover from automobiles to electric vehicles, it might seem like the car body is an area that doesn’t need to change too much. In fact, to meet the demands for lightweight electric vehicle bodies, suppliers are having to explore the use of new materials.

協易機械副總Steven Lee:「為了追求電動車的輕量化,製造商經常使用非常輕的鋁合金或是不同的合金材料,每種材料成型的曲線、方式都不同,對於這個從油車到電動車在製造上的改變,協易開發的伺服沖床可以無段變速,整合生產製造的通訊、監控、結合物聯網即時運算回饋,馬達的扭力也是獨步全球,非常適合這些高強度複合材質能夠一次到位的成形。」
SEYI Vice President Steven Lee: To make electric vehicles as light as possible, manufacturers often use very light aluminum alloy or different alloy materials, and the curves and forming methods are different for each material. For this shift from gasoline cars to electric vehicles, the servo presses developed by SEYI can have variable speeds, integrate production information and control, connect to the Internet of Things for real-time computing feedback and are equipped with unique motor torque, making SEYI's products very suited to forming high-strength composite materials in one go.



和和機械總經理:「3D光纖雷射切管機,輕易解決傳統鋼管加工劣勢。」
SOCO Machinery General Manager: 3D fiber laser tube cutting machine cuts the disadvantages of traditional steel pipe machining 

和和機械在管件加工設備領域是亞洲之王,全球前三大,從航太工業的NASA及各式飛機,到動輒千萬超跑的排氣管都要找它。然而面對市場從燃油車轉往設計邏輯完全不同的電動車,和和並不打算坐以待斃。
SOCO Machinery is number one in Asia in pipe machining, and one of the world’s top three. Their products are used by NASA and for various kinds of aircraft, as well as exhaust pipes for supercars. Facing the switch from gasoline cars to electric vehicles with a completely different design logic, SOCO doesn’t plan to sit and wait.

和和機械總經理Kyle Lo表示:「對於電動車所需的輕量化高強度鋼管,和和開發超高推力的智慧化彎管機設備,擁有自動化連線技術,能運算精度誤差並自動補償、AI模擬最佳生產方式、無人化操作甚至跨國遠端監控及技術支援。此外,在傳統圓鋸機及沖床無法滿足大量的管件切割需求時,和和是全球第一家切入3D光纖雷射切管機領域的廠商,不需模具,只要輸入參數可立即投入自動化生產。高功率雷射切割技術具備快速及彈性的優勢,無需密集人力及傳統經驗,智慧運算後自動加工,輕易取代傳統設備,反轉鋼管加工業的劣勢。」
SOCO Machinery General Manager Kyle Lo said, “For the lightweight and high-strength steel pipes required for electric vehicles, SOCO has developed high-thrust smart pipe bending machines. The machines have automated connection technology, can calculate accuracy errors and compensate, can do AI simulations of the best production method, can operate unmanned, and even have transnational remote monitoring and technical support. In addition, when traditional circular saw machines and presses cannot meet mass demand for tube cutting, SOCO is the world’s first manufacturer in the area of 3D fiberoptic laser tube cutting machines. You don’t need a mold, just input the parameters to instantly start automated production. High-power laser technology is fast and flexible. It doesn’t need intensive manpower and years of experience to operate: computing followed by automatic machining easily replaces traditional equipment and overturns the former disadvantages of the pipe machining industry.”
