News Type: Press Release


Intelligent Asia will be held at TaiNEX 1 & 2 from August 23rd to 26th. The expo features eight key themes: automation, robotics, logistics, 3D printing, molding, fluid power, laser technology, and cold chain. Riding the waves of global supply chain shifts and the international inclination towards intelligent and eco-friendly manufacturing, globally acclaimed system integrators, machinery component manufacturers, and equipment titans are enthusiastically participating; over 1200 exhibitors worldwide, across nearly 4500 booths, including Analog Devices (ADI), will showcase their innovations, reflecting the global shift towards intelligent and eco-friendly manufacturing.

Amid the global push for net-zero emissions and carbon border adjustments, the green transformation has become a paramount concern for large-scale manufacturing giants entering the global market and small to medium-sized businesses striving for sustainable operations. In response, Intelligent Asia adopted the theme "BE TWIN: Building TWIN TRANSITION Ecosystem' this year. It's supported by numerous specialized forums and showcases featuring industry leaders like Advantech, ABB, NEXCOM, TECO, Pitotech, FineReport, and more. The focus is on low-carbon practices, sustainable energy, and tailored solutions to move beyond slogans to practical TWIN TRANSITION.

§ Practical Industry 4.0 Implementation: Current and Future of Factories

Amid the rise of Industry 5.0 in Europe and America, manufacturing across Asia is undergoing a necessary transformation. Industry 4.0 is crucial for Taiwan's global manufacturing involvement and an essential focus for small and medium-sized businesses' sustainability.
