Factory for automotive components opens in Taiwan
In order to enhance its portfolio of automotive products and increase its production capacity, EVERLIGHT Electronics has invested more than $300m to construct a smart, ergonomic factory for the production of automotive components in Taiwan, the Miaoli Tongluo New Factory.
EVERLIGHT started to expand its automotive activities in 2014. Today, the company owns a portfolio of automotive products for all interior/exterior vehicle applications. All products are sulfur-resistant and passed the corrosive gases test for H2S, SO2, CL2 and NO2, etc. Thus the caveats against LED products which failed the sulfur-resistance test, in terms of brightness, color coordinates, voltage and function failure, etc., can be effectively reduced.
The Tongluo New Factory features human factor engineering and automation AOI that divides warehousing and production. This concept takes care of the connection routes between upstairs and downstairs at the same time. RFID (Radio Frequency
Identification) was introduced to aid MES system in process control. All products will have engraved this laser code before die bonding, for the convenience of tracking the in-process and post-process status of the product.
With the superiorities integrated by floor routes, automation AOI, MES (Manufacturing Execution System), etc, EVERLIGHT’s Tongluo Factory is able to lessen the needed manpower, effectively reduce the logistic processes, maximise production efficiency, and achieve an increase in production capacity.
