- MIRDC inaugurates Asia-Pacific vacuum heat treatment synergy center, boosting Taiwan's precision machinery industry

KAOHSIUNG, Dec. 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Metal Industries Research and Development Center (MIRDC) and ECM Group jointly announced the establishment of the Asia-Pacific Vacuum Heat Treatment Synergy Center on December 13 2023. The inauguration was witnessed by Dr. Hsiang-Wei Ho, Section Chief of the Department of Industrial Technology (DoIT), Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA), Chung-Chun Wu, Vice President of the Taiwan Society for Treatment Metal Thermal Technology (TSMHT), Yung-Chang Kang, Supervisor of Taiwan Mold and Die Industry Association, Wen -Chin Chen, Secretary General of Taiwan Robotics, Intelligence and Automation Association, François Cotier, National Director of Business France Taiwan, Stéphane Peden, Director General of the French Chamber of Taiwan, Lei Zhao, Director of Heat Treatment (LPC) of the ECM Group and Yung-Hsiang Lai, President of MIRDC. In collaboration with France-based ECM Group, MIRDC formed the Asia-Pacific Vacuum Heat Treatment Synergy Center, with the aim of promoting Taiwan's precision manufacturing and component industries. The center will mainly focus on applications in the optoelectronics, semiconductor, medical equipment, electric vehicle (EV) and telecommunications sectors, with the aim of helping Taiwanese OEMs seize business opportunities with an accumulated value exceeding NT$20 billion.

Taiwan produces world-class precision machinery parts, with a production value exceeding NT$20 billion. It is technologically on par with Japan in Asia and has a complete industrial supply chain that generates a significant clustering effect. This strategic positioning has made the island a main supplier of precision components for the markets of Europe, the United States, Southeast Asia and Central and South America. The island's distinctive geographical advantages and manufacturing expertise set it up to emerge as a key hub in the global supply of machinery components, particularly in light of growing global demand in the machinery, vehicles and electronics sectors. Heat treatment technology will play a crucial role in the development of high-value precision components, offering advantages such as effective distortion control, energy-efficient processes and intelligent equipment design. Under the direction of MOEA, MIRDC has been tasked with improving heat treatment techniques through development, simulation, testing and analysis. The collaboration with ECM Group, a leader in vacuum heat treatment and precision control equipment design, further strengthens Taiwan's ability to offer comprehensive solutions in materials, processes, systems and equipment. This collaborative effort is intended to strengthen Taiwan's role in the global supply chain for precision parts and components.

Lai, president of MIRDC, emphasized the importance of ECM Group as a global equipment supplier, highlighting its extensive collaborations with more than 400 companies in 29 countries and regions, and its significant participation in the international market. He noted that MIRDC has established itself in the development of composite heat treatment, energy-efficient processes, and AI-enabled testing and verification, achievements recognized by awards such as the R Awards.

The partnership between MIRDC and ECM Group has resulted in the establishment of a new facility, which serves as a pilot platform for international development and benefits domestic industries. This collaboration integrates high-pressure gas cooling, connecting the three parties: ECM Group (equipment and technical expertise), MIRDC (process) and industry players (verification), fostering synergies in technology, human resources, products and applications . A significant aspect of this strategic alliance is its ability to localize the development process that was previously outsourced to France. This localization is expected to dramatically reduce the development timeline, from the previous 1-2 months to just 1-2 weeks. You will balance quality, delivery and cost while providing local potential customers with product development and trial production solutions. The center is planned to raise the standards of heat treatment technology development and manufacturing in Taiwan. Additionally, plans are underway for the center to support the local development of energy-efficient Crystal growth semiconductor equipment and components through its collaboration with ECM Group. This move is expected to strengthen the global competitiveness of Taiwan's semiconductor and precision machinery industry.
