EVERLIGHT opens automotive factory in Taiwan

EVERLIGHT Electronics Co., Ltd., a leading player in the global LED and optoelectronics industry, is dedicated to R&D of automotive LED products and providing a comprehensive portfolio of automotive products for its either interior or exterior applications.

 

In order to meet highest quality demands for automotive products and strongly increasing production capacities, the establishment of the Miaoli Tongluo New Factory resulted in investments more than 300 million US dollars to construct a smart, ergonomic factory for the production of automotive components.

EVERLIGHT started to expand its automotive activities in 2014. Today, the company owns a comprehensive portfolio of automotive products for all interior/exterior vehicle applications. All products are sulfur-resistant and passed the corrosive gases test for H2S, SO2, CL2 and NO2, etc. Thus the caveats against LED products which failed the sulfur-resistance test, in terms of brightness, colour coordinates, voltage and function failure, etc., can be effectively reduced.

 

EVERLIGHT is also well aware and knows very well about the high-standard quality requirements affecting all aspects for products in an automotive factory. Thus, starting in 2015, a hefty amount of money was invested in the construction of Tongluo New Factory. The factory excels with a conception of human factor engineering and automation AOI that clearly divide warehousing and production. This concept takes care of the connection routes between upstairs and downstairs at the same time. RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) was introduced to aid MES system in process control. All products will have engraved this laser code before die bonding, for the convenience of tracking the in-process and post-process status of the product.

 

With the superiorities integrated by floor routes, automation AOI, MES (Manufacturing Execution System), etc., EVERLIGHT’s Tongluo Factory is able to lessen the needed manpower, effectively reduce the logistic processes, maximise the production efficiency, and achieve a production capacity up to 200KK per month while at the same time pursuing the high quality. It is the intelligent factory characterised with the concept of human factor engineering that combines quality and productivity.

 

EVERLIGHT has over 33 years of experience in the LED packaging industry. Therein, it has more than ten years of experience in the ‘Automotive LED’ segment. Its wide product line built up in recent years, its quality and now the newly established factory for automotive components demonstrates firmly its decision to step into the automotive core market. EVERLIGHT, through its integration of strengths, is for sure to have the confidence in satisfying the customer requirements of automobile manufacturers.
