TAITRA Wang pointed out that Taiwan's plastics, rubber and shoe-making machinery industries are renowned for extraordinary flexibility, customization and efficiency. Taking advantage of Taiwan’s prowess in ICT technologies, Taiwan's plastics, rubber and shoe-making machinery industries have accelerated digital transformation and become active in the circular economy. The event will unfold a wide range of innovations for the applications in automotive, healthcare, aerospace and consumer electronics sectors.
TAMI Chairman Wei elaborated that the plastic and rubber machinery manufacturers in Taiwan recently have focused on the developments of all-electric machines, servomotors, multi-station linkage, recycling solutions for raw materials and energy, etc. Machines become more intelligent and efficient in energy saving. Thus, Taiwan players successfully stand strong in the challenging market.
Taiwan's plastics, rubber and shoe-making machinery industries have demonstrated exceptional resilience and resistance to external challenges despite rapid changes in international trade lately, as well as the damages caused by the Russian-Ukraine war, labor shortage, inflation and raw material prices.
