Jul 19, 2018

Kuala Lumpur, 5th July 2018 – Taiwan Excellence is the mark of quality for some of the best products coming out of Taiwan and is participating in this year’s premium architecture exhibition, ARCHIDEX, from 4th to 7th of July. 25 Taiwanese manufacturers across different industries brought a total of 66 high quality smart home and city solutions to Malaysia to explore business opportunities.

Taiwan Excellence is Taiwan’s official certification for products that have met and exceeded stringent standards in their research & development (R&D), designs, quality, marketing and other aspects of innovation and creativity. The symbol has been around for 26 years and products are carefully selected each year to bear this mark of excellence. The products to be showcased in this year’s Taiwan Excellence Pavilion will centre on smart solutions for building, office and homes. Equipment such as Buder’s three temperature water dispensers Amobile - the world’s first integrated thermal imaging and Push-to-Talk Mobile Inspection Assistant, and Caesar hydropower Sensor Faucet are some of the cutting edge smart living solutions to be revealed.

His Excellency James Chang Chi-ping, Representative of Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Malaysia stressed the importance of getting on board the smart living solution train in this interconnected era. Taiwan is a world leader in the global communication industry and is ready to share its high quality products and solutions with the world. Chang hopes that Malaysian companies can gain further understanding of Taiwan’s innovation and its value through the exhibition.

According to Datuk Matthew Tee Kai Woon, President of International Federation of Asian and Western Pacific Contractors' Associations, the government of Malaysia is actively looking to develop smart cities as well as expanding the uses of smart technologies within the country. The desire to develop smart homes has been around for years and some minor inroads have been made, but more needs to be done for the technology to truly take off. Foo is confident that Taiwan’s highly developed innovative products and solutions will provide the perfect synergy for Malaysia to grow in this segment and accelerate the country’s progress.

Capturing Imagination with Innovative Smart Living

To better facilitate Malaysian companies’ understanding of Taiwanese smart technologies, the Taiwan Excellence Pavilion organized a forum titled “Smart Living with Taiwan Excellence” on the 5th of July.

Ready for take-off Transatlantic Trade Aligns to Advance Airplane Production
Jul 13, 2018

Mobile, Ala --( ASIA TODAY )-- Leading global logistics provider DB Schenker has developed a streamlined logistics and transportation system for Airbus’ final assembly line production in Mobile, Ala. A sign of strong European-U.S. trade relations, this development is increasing employment for the City of Mobile while allowing Airbus to improve its logistics operations.

Airbus partnered with DB Schenker to develop a logistics plan to accommodate the manufacturer’s larger, ocean-going vessels. Those vessels are now being used for the international transport of four complete airplane “ship sets” per month. Using a new roll-on/roll-off terminal, its barge, and a newly-dredged section of river, Airbus can now use larger vessels to transfer the components by water.

Working with local contractors, DB Schenker also refurbished a pier (at the production plant) and constructed a new airplane hangar, both of which are enabling just-in-time delivery and use of the airplane parts.

Tanguy Largeau, DB Schenker’s Head of Vertical Market Aerospace Americas, says the logistics provider took an innovative approach to reduce road transport of the parts, and to mirror Airbus’ European operations and organize transportation via waterway. Borrowing a page from Airbus’ European operations, the logistics provider came up with a way to organize the transportation via waterway. That plan would include a fully-refurbished dock and pier, and a new hangar. “We designed the solution and organized the project,” says Largeau, who adds that DB Schenker coordinated with local authorities, service providers, and Airbus itself to bring the multifaceted project to fruition.

Airbus first used the new logistics setup for a shipment in May. Michael L. Schoenfeld, Senior Vice President and Head of Contract Logistics for DB Schenker USA, says the innovative concept is helping Airbus maximize area waterways, increase production, and utilize existing infrastructure that included a dock that was built and used during World War II.

“Working with Airbus, the local authorities, and numerous local providers, we designed the solution, organized the project, and orchestrated it in a way that solved Airbus’ key challenges,” says Schoenfeld. “The first run with the new system was flawless.”

These immediate, positive results bode well for the U.S. and European economies impacted by this innovative partnership, which has helped to add/preserve employment while also creating new business opportunities for area service providers.

“This project, which involved multiple divisions across DB Schenker, is a tribute to the entrepreneurial nature of our organization,” says Schoenfeld. “We were presented with a business problem and we funneled pockets of expertise across multiple divisions of our organization and found a way to a better solution.”

Seoul Semiconductor's LED SunLike Improves Eye Health and Sleep Quality, According to Clinical Study
Jul 12, 2018

ANSAN, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Seoul Semiconductor Co., Ltd. (KOSDAQ 046890), a global market leader in LED (light emitting diode) design and manufacturing, announced that a research has shown that its “SunLike” is an optimized LED for human centric lighting that improves eye health and sleep quality.

The research team of Biomedical Information Laboratory, Seoul National University College of Medicine in Korea, has reported that using SunLike based lighting, the eye discomfort is significantly reduced and the sleep quality is improved compared to conventional LED lighting users.

The researchers conducted experiments on adults including graduate students at Seoul National University, who spend a lot of time studying at their desk indoors. Each participant was instructed to use SunLike desk lamp and conventional LED lamp for 3 hours before bedtime. The team conducted a questionnaire and analyzed the vital signs of participants recorded during sleep.

Subjective evaluation through questionnaires showed a significant decrease in eye fatigue and a marked improvement in sleep quality. The researchers found that improvement of the feeling of not refreshing after a sleep in the following morning was statistically significant.

As a result of analyzing the measured vital sign, the time it takes to fall asleep is 23% faster and the time to break during sleep was also improved by 43%. Therefore, the research team found that sleep efficiency as an indicator of sleep was significantly improved from 88% to 94%.

“We conclude that these effects are due to the stabilization of the autonomic nervous system rhythm, which is manifested by inactivation of sympathetic nerve and activity of parasympathetic nerve by SunLike based lighting,” said the research team of SNU. “Light affects people’s circadian rhythm. In order to improve biorhythm, we can adjust the light according to time zone and use a light source close to sunlight,” said the research team of SNU.

SunLike is an advanced light source that combines the latest optical and compound semiconductor technology of Seoul Semiconductor and *TRI-R technology, a sunlight spectrum reproduction technology, that is a registered trademark by the Toshiba Materials Co., Ltd. It that lowers blue light peak similar to sunlight spectrum contributes to maintaining a stable human circadian rhythms and enhancing the color clarity of objects.

In addition, as a result of analyzing the blue light emitted by the LED ‘SunLike’, it received Eye Safety Certification for level RG-1, the highest level of safety, from Korea Testing & Research Institute last November. This is the level given to a safe light source without any photobiological hazards.

“Since its launch on June 29th, last year in Frankfurt, Germany, with Toshiba Materials Co., Ltd., SunLike has being supplied to global customers in US, Europe, China and Japan that manufacture home lightings, smart desk stands and lamps. It is also currently working on more than 200 projects for SunLike with customers, suppliers and researchers,” said Minsoo Son, marketing vice president of Seoul Semiconductor. “We will prove SunLike is the innovative LED which adds value for human centric lighting by demonstrating differentiated quality and competitiveness to exceed customers’ expectations.”

*TRI-R, supported by Toshiba Materials, finds in the definition “The light closest to the sun for human well-being” as its original concept. The sun light spectrum is developed by the same company and can be reproduced by a white LED light source technology.

Whether it is the automotive or supplier industry, precision or micro engineering, medical technology, mechatronics, electronics or other industrial sector, current trends are changing requirements concerning parts cleaning. This also includes an increasing number of smaller and more complex parts and components. Shorter product life cycles, lower product volumes right down to the manufacture of single parts, the use of new materials and material combinations, for example for lightweight engineering applications, and new or modified production processes. Electromobility, autonomous driving and manufacturing environments designed for Industrie 4.0 are further developments which are influencing parts cleaning. There are cases where material combinations or surface structures are unsuitable for wet-chemical cleaning, or only certain areas of components need a specific degree of cleanliness, such as bonding, welding or sealing surfaces, or cleaning steps are performed on assembled components.

Scalable cleaning solution with CO2 snow

This is where the reliable and cost-effective snow jet technology from acp – advanced clean production GmbH comes into its own. The scalable cleaning system can be easily adapted to diverse component geometries to clean selective areas or whole components.

This environmentally-neutral technology uses liquid carbon dioxide as a cleaning medium which, as opposed to dry ice, is gained as a by-product from chemical processes and the generation of energy from biomass. It has an almost indefinite shelf-life and is supplied in cylinders or tanks.

Dry, residue-free and selective cleaning process

Liquid CO2 is guided through the non-wearing two-component ring nozzle of the acp system and expands on exiting to form fine CO2 crystals. These are then bundled by a circular jacketed jet of compressed air and accelerated to supersonic speed. The patented technology ensures uniform cleaning results - even on large surfaces where several nozzles are used.

The jet of snow and compressed air has a temperature of minus 78.5°C and can be focused exactly where it is needed. When it impacts on the surface to be cleaned, a combination of thermal, mechanical, sublimation and solvent effects take place. These four cleaning mechanisms enable the quattroClean system to remove filmic contamination, such as residues of cooling lubricants, process oils, polishing pastes, separating agents and silicons, as well as particulate contamination, for example chips, dust and abrasion. Since the cleaning step with the non-combustible, non-corrosive and non-toxic CO2 snow is also gentle on materials, even delicate and finely-structured surfaces can be treated.

The aerodynamic force of the jet transports the detached dirt away. This is then extracted from the cleaning cell together with the sublimated CO2 in a gaseous state. The workpieces are dry on completion of the cleaning process, enabling them to be further processed or packaged straightaway.

Cleaning solution suitable for a wide range of products

The quattroClean snow jet technology has proved to be effective in numerous applications in various branches of industry. For example, the cleaning system has been in use for several years now to remove ablation residues from injection-molded interconnect devices (MID) produced by means of laser direct structuring. Compared with common cleaning methods, such as ultrasonic or high-pressure washing processes, the quattroClean system has the advantage that the rough laser structures are smoothed at the same time, thus simplifying joining and assembly tasks. Laser residues also need to be removed when manufacturing batteries. Residues from laser processing cells, which could cause shorting, are removed selectively and reliably. A manufacturer of sensor systems uses the snow jet technology from acp to clean off particles before sensors liable to damage are packaged. For this application, a hermetically-sealed cleaning cell was developed, which is integrated into a clean zone and fitted with a filter fan unit to supply clean air. The quattroClean system is also used in an inline application to clean engine pistons before their surfaces are optically measured. The parts are cleaned by a robot. The system works in the production system’s one-piece flow and is capable of cleaning 11 cm2/sec. When it comes to die-cutting, an almost manual system removes production residues from strips immediately after cutting. This single-part cleaning step replaces the commonly-used wet-chemical cleaning process.

Compact, easy to automate and targeted control

Thanks to its modular design, the compact quattroClean system from acp is easy to adapt to specific customer requirements. This allows manual, partially-automated and even fully-automated cleaning systems to be developed and integrated into existing production, assembly and packaging lines. Cleaning tests are conducted at the acp technical center to accurately determine all the process parameters for the application concerned, such as volume flows for compressed air and carbon dioxide, as well as the duration of the jet. Material properties and the type of contamination requiring removal are also accounted for. These parameters can be filed as cleaning programs in the system control. Depending on the task at hand, systems for cleanroom use can be realized with their own local cleanroom system, including a specially-adapted extraction system.
