The event also saw the MOU signing between Seyi Machinery and Beckhoff for 'Collaboration in Applied Technologies for Smart Stamping Press' that sees partnership in advancing smart machinery capabilities and expand international markets; the MOU between Taiwan's Nexcobot and Germany's Synapticon for 'Smart Industrial Cobot Control Technology Cooperation' sees collaboration in optimizing robotics design and software for operation, creating high performance and low energy consumption robotics control solutions.
Strengthening industrial exchange between Taiwan and Germany can support further connections in the supply chain in response to the rapidly changing global industrial environment. Through annual smart machinery forum between Taiwan and Germany, both industries will continue to promote new bilateral collaborations and partnerships for Industry 4.0 and smart manufacturing, capturing more and new opportunities in existing and new places.
