LITE-ON Expands ASEAN Market with Its One-Stop Shopping Offering of Industrial Automation Solution


(Taipei, Taiwan - June 19th, 2018) Aiming at ASEAN countries’rapidly-growing demand in Industrial Automation (IA) solutions, LITE-ON Technology Corp. (TWSE: 2301), Taiwan's first listed company in the opto-electronics manufacturing sector, will debut its IA total solution in ASEAN's biggest Manufacturing Expo during June 20th to 23rd2018.


With strength in one-stop shopping offering, high cost-performance ratio and leverage of LITE-ON Group's manufacturing capabilities, LITE-ON's IA business sets goals to establish presence in ASEAN region and actively seeks local distributors in Thailand.


One-Stop Shopping Offering Accommodates Customized Needs


Founded in 1975, LITE-ON operates more than 55 manufacturing sites worldwide. IA Business Unit, within the Smart Life and Applications (SLA) Strategic Business Group, is led by General Manager, Dr. Ken Cheng.


"Realizing “Intelligent Integration with Innovation”for our global customers and partners is IA's mission," said Dr. Cheng. From human machine interface (HMI), programmable logic controllers (PLC), inverters, servo-drives to motors, LITE-ON's product portfolio provides automation total solution that maximizes products' value, optimizes machine tuning and hence increases production efficiency for customers.


“What differentiates LITE-ON from its competitors is its one-stop shopping offering that accommodates customers’ needs with relatively higher cost-performance ratio. Besides, not only can we upgrade existing machinery overall performance, but we help customers save energy and cost as well," said Dr. Cheng.


Smart Factory Begins with In-House Success Stories


Facing the challenge of industrial upgrading and climate change, LITE-ON has dedicated itself as “Best Partner in Opto-Electronics, Eco-Friendly and Intelligent Technologies."Hence, we takes the lead to implement our IA solution in building automation and production line upgrading.


Take smart building as instance. LITE-ON has implemented its PLCs and inverters in lighting, electricity, air-conditioning, elevator energy-saving, solar equipment temperature monitoring and water-pumping across its offices in Taiwan, saving up to 50% of energy consumption. As for production line upgrading, we build up IA solutions for punching and injection molding processing to enhance machine precision and energy-efficiency.


PLC, the Brain of IA Accelerates Preventive Maintenance for Smart Factory


PLCs are integral to LITE-ON’s IA solutions. Our PLCs

are equipped with 1GHz high-speed quad-core processor, top-grade work memory capacity of 100MB, EtherCAT function, high-speed precision machine operation support, up to 16axis of full-function and adaptable to multiple communication protocols.


“Integration is key to smart manufacturing. LITE-ON builds up IA total solutions which incorporates and maximizes values of its PLCs, inverters, servo-drives and motors,” said Dr. Cheng.


LITE-ON’s IA solutions can gradually replace highly-repetitive manual labor tasks, increase production quality and decrease manufacturing cost. We make factory remote control possible by our products’ high-speed communication and work memory. Our customers can access to real-time production statistics, such as power consumption or abnormal event for further analytics and necessary action.


LITE-ON offers excellentone-stop shopping experience, high cost-performance ratio and leverage of its worldwide manufacturing capabilities. We regard Thailand distributors as our strategic partners for entry into ASEAN market and targets at becoming recognizable smart factory solution provider in the region.
