Promoting the smart machinery industry

  • Date: 2019-03-29

The Smart Machinery Development Program is an important component of the government’s “five plus two” innovative industries plan. Initiated in July 2016, the program envisions utilizing such Industry 4.0 technologies as cloud computing, big data, the internet of things and smart robots to vault Taiwan’s precision machinery industry into the ranks of smart machinery manufacturers. This revolution will not only create jobs, but will also boost exports of smart production lines and turnkey solutions. Taiwan will emerge as a global center for the research, development and production of smart machinery and critical components used in high-end equipment. As industries throughout the economy accelerate the adoption of smart technologies, Taiwan will witness a transformational upgrade of the overall industrial landscape.
