Arburg Cooperates with Taiwan’s Ming Chi University
In the context of their visit of Taipei Plas 2014 in Taiwan, Helmut Heinson, Managing Director Sales, and Andrea Carta, Overseas Director, signed a cooperation agreement between Arburg GmbH + Co. KG, Lossburg, Germany, and the Taiwanese Ming Chi University of Technology.
Ming Chi University already collaborates closely with the largest Taiwanese industrial enterprise, the Formosa Plastic Group. This globally operating company has successfully invested in important sectors such as biotechnology, health and medical technology, the oil industry and in plastics processing in recent years. Through the cooperation with Arburg, the injection molding expertise is to be further enhanced at the University.
This initiative was largely made possible thanks to C&F Corporation Limited, which has represented Arburg for over 35 years. Experts from C&F have already held seminars at Ming Chi University in order to build up and strengthen its contacts to the plastics processing industry.
Ming Chi University would like to use Arburg injection molding technology in its educational and training activities as well as in research and development, particularly in the area of medical technology. This is primarily to take place in cooperation with various Taiwanese hospitals. Through the cooperation between the University and Arburg, contacts to regional industrial companies will also be expanded to the benefit of both partners: Arburg can demonstrate the high performance of its injection molding technology and its comprehensive expertise, as well as further raising its profile in Taiwan and China.
In addition to improving the training conditions for students and practitioners from regional injection molding companies, the University management are also interested in enhancing job opportunities for the trained graduates. The intention is that these will then bring their experience with the high-end technology from Arburg into the daily operations of injection molding companies within the country.
During the period of the agreement, initially of two years, injection molding experts from Arburg and C&F, for example, will hold regular seminars and workshops as part of the engineering curriculum of Ming Chi University in order to provide practical training for students and teaching staff.
