FCS set a brilliant record in Taipeiplas 2018
The Taipei International Plastics and Rubber Industry Exhibition (Taipeiplas) is held every two years and is the largest plastic rubber industry event in Taiwan. The 8/15-8/19 period of 5 days attracts about 500 exhibitors and 18,096 domestic and international visitors. Among them, the top brand of the injection molding machine industry, FCS, has set a brilliant record of three highs - high-tech content, high guest wave, and high order amount.
Smart Technology brings new chances
With the MIT belief, FCS has selected the most up-to-date research and development results in Taipeiplas' debut, making it different from other international exhibitions. For this exhibition and for the first time, FCS announces the iMF 4.0 (intelligent ManuFactory), which is a smart production management system that linked to FCS's newly released Standard Toggle Hydraulic IMM (FA-160 & FA-300) and Electric IMM (CT-300), was also connected to the molding equipment at its Tainan head office to showcase the concept of off-site production management.
The iMF 4.0 system is based on the cycle time management and introduces the concept of mold management, machine management and material management, and OPC international communication protocol to achieve instant display of overall equipment efficiency information and abnormal message statistics. The production manager can promptly grasp the production status and rapidly achieve the purpose of abnormal production countermeasures.
The most important thing is that the iMF4.0 system can be used regardless of any brand of IMM. It is no wonder that during the exhibition, many customers are attracted to FCS stand.
Smart machine achieves the grand prize
FCS exhibited three brand new models, which not only upgraded the specifications, but also optimized the design. The appearance was more in line with the aesthetics and corporate identity and well received by domestic and foreign customers. Moreover, those three machines are equipped with various quality monitoring systems and connected to iMF 4.0 intelligent manufacturing system, let FCS win the Excellent prize and First prize of the Research and Innovation Award of Taipeiplas.
New generation Molding System：FA-160
FA series is the new generation of standard servo energy-saving models released by FCS. Its performance and intelligence, and high-end electronic control systems make it an intelligent injection molding machine. During the show, the FA-160 equipped with the systems of "Tie bar clamping force monitoring" and "mold cooling flow and temperature monitoring", automated producing a two-cavity multi-functional stacking bin. The great performance made this machine sold immediately, and its "Injection Industry 4.0 Solution -Adaptive control technology for viscosity variation inhibition of melt" also won the highest honor of excellence prize.
In Mold Labeling Molding System：CT-300
FCS introduces advanced All-Electric injection molding machine with a 300-ton clamping force, high purity, high response, low noise and Combined with the in-mold quality signal monitoring system, which quickly and easily produce 100 ml ice cream boxes with 4+4 cavities. It not only doubles production output through the stack mold technology, but also uses mold cavity flow balance module for monitoring and automatic compensation and screening of defective products to achieve unmanned production monitoring. It demonstrates the concept of a smart factory.
MuCell Molding System：FA-300
Foaming injection molding application is one of the important developments under the drive of lightweight and environmental awareness. Except light weighting, it could also achieve dimensional stability, shrinkage avoiding, heat and sound isolation, and energy saving. However, its poor surface quality is the disadvantage. FCS has mastered this application trend and key process technology for customers in advance. We take the new generation IMM FA-300 equipped with MuCell screw and gas injector to molding the 10~12% light weighting shoe stretchers that are also free from secondary processing and surface coating.
Smart marketing wins the brilliant result
Every exhibition, FCS's theme is to meet the market demand and industry development trend, and to lead the innovative R&D professional capabilities. In addition to booth visitors, FCS always welcomes the industry, government, and research groups visit reservation and media interviews. Moreover, FCS was also invited to participate in the Industry 4.0 Summit Forum of this Taipeiplas. The CEO Alan Wang gave a wonderful speech on how FCS can make injection molding intellectualization. All of these marketing efforts let FCS obtain exciting results during this Taipeiplas, the award of glory, booth visitors and orders are multiplied, nearly 600 valid business cards, the record of more than 600,000 US dollars order for the first day, and the total performance has exceeded 2.5 million US dollars, which has made the FCS staff more convinced that even if the Taipeiplas seem to be localized, the road to "breakthrough and innovation" is absolutely not lonely. FCS, based in Taiwan, will uphold the MIT spirit to support the local exhibition continuously and push Taiwan brand to the world.
