Taichung Mayor Lin visits IBS and KMWE
A delegation, consisting of Taichung Mayor Lin, Taiwanese ambassador Tom Chou and 60 visitors from local government, institutes and several Taichung companies, visited Brainport Region Eindhoven.
During this visit the delegation was informed of the latest technologies and innovations.
They also visited IBS and KMWE who demonstrated some of their newest innovations, like the smart industry solution 'Rotery Inspector', which delivers a clear and traceable quality statement for 5-axis machine tools across the factory and the 6 "Alicia" machines which are being built by IBS for the CERN as part of the Alice Detector upgrade. At KMWE the visitors were guided through the advanced factory of Components. Complex parts are machined based on high mix, low volume, high complexity.
IBS and KMWE combined this visit with the closure of a so called MIT project. For this project, funded by the Dutch Government, IBS and KMWE worked together on the development of the above mentioned 'Rotary Inspector'.
The visit was organised by the Taiwanese Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI).
At the end of the day, a MOU was signed between ITRI and IBS.
