  • The casting industry predominantly manufactures cast iron parts, with non-ferrous metals comprising a minority share. Casting products find applications across various sectors, including transportation, agricultural machinery, construction engineering, renewable energy, and medical engineering. In the automotive and aviation industries, heightened environmental awareness has spurred the development of lightweight products to minimize energy consumption, prompting advancements in casting technology. This article provides a brief overview of the evolving development trends in casting technology in response to market demands.

  • Since the United Nations released the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015, from 2016 to 2030, each nation must protect the environment and tackle climate change while pursuing economic performance. We request ourselves to maintain the operation performance while demonstrating environmental responsibility. So we decided to import ISO 14001 environmental management systems, paying equal importance to corporate development as well as environment management.
  • Where there is an enterprise, there are workers. Ensuring the safety of workers is the base of an enterprise's sustainability as well as the focus of the business operation. The International Labor Organization (ILO) has already released an article on occupational safety and health in 1981. Since 2003, April 28 has been designated as "World Labor Safety and Health Day", to let more people pay attention to occupational hazards and prevention of occupational disease.
  • According to the latest survey of Accenture Consulting, Industry 4.0 will add as much as $14.2 trillion to the global economy by 2030. The wave of smart manufacturing makes processes improve rapidly, and the inspection process is the key to ensuring the correct assembly of components and the safe operation of products.
  • A robotic arm is an automatic control device that is similar to a human arm functioning and able to do various tasks. The main purpose of this automatic device is to complete the movements of the "wrist and hand". It can do the same movement correctly and repeatedly countless times, which will be a great help to improve the labor force and increase production efficiency.
  • One of our precision metalworking solutions is assembly and welding. Welding is the technique of joining metals or other materials by means of heat or pressure. Modern welding technology first appeared at the end of the 19th century and has developed various welding methods, such as gas welding, arc welding, laser beam welding, etc. Among the metal materials that we commonly use, cast iron is known for its high elongation, and stainless steel is high temperature and corrosion resistant, which is a commonly used metal material under the modern energy-saving trend. Various metals have their own properties, and it is expected to have a hybrid positive effect on the application of products.
  • CATIA was developed in the 1980s by French software design company Dassault Systèmes S.A. It was originally used for aircraft manufacturing and later expanded to other product design applications, including automobile, vessel, and other consumer goods. With technology developing, the application of CATIA has been spread to the aviation, national defense, transportation, high technology, industrial equipment, construction, and biomedical industries.
  • In the field of precision machining, there are many factors that can affect the yield of finished products; human factors are one of them. How to reduce the impact of human factors on yield is the focus of what we’ve improved in the past. In recent years, we have imported the online measurement system and established an automatic production line, which has successfully reduced the impact of human factors on the yield of finished products.
  • WKPT’s automatic production line consists of an Italian COMAU NS series six-axis robotic arm, which can grip 16 kg materials, and the repeatability accuracy reaches 0.05mm. Also with COMAU Rebel four-axis robotic arm can grip 6 kg materials and the repeatability accuracy reaches 0.02mm.
