RocTool and Ju Teng launch the largest mass production of composite parts world-wide for the Electronics market
|Ju Teng launches the largest mass production of composite parts world-wide for the Electronics market, using RocTool's innovative processes
Ju Teng, just opened the largest composite factory in the world to produce smartphone and tactile tablet covers. The Taiwanese provider of 3C (computers, communication and electronic devices) is indeed equipped with RocTool's rapid molding technologies and has invested in over a hundred assembly lines to increase production rates and therefore, to have the largest production capacity in the world.
Ju Teng launches the largest mass production of composites in the world
Ju Teng already manufactured over a million smartphone parts in the last quarter of 2013 with RocTool's technologies. The Taiwanese giant continues to increase production rates and aims to provide one million parts per month. "RocTool technologies allow mass production to interested actors such as Ju Teng, whose objective is to meet the growing demand for quality electronic parts, designed with innovative materials. At present on the world scale, it represents the largest production of composite parts" states Alexandre GUICHARD, RocTool's CEO.
Exceptional composite parts produced at high rates with RocTool technologies
The parts are manufactured using composite materials with thermoplastic resins and reinforced with fiber glass, carbon fiber or other supports. The composite mechanical caracteristics adapted to impact resistance can allow producing of parts less than 0.5mm thick.
RocTool technologies heat the molds by induction in seconds, which dramatically reduces production time and allows the production of composite parts with optimum surface quality. "The Major Brands of tablet and smartphones are actively seeking ways of differentiation and performance improvement
the difference therefore leans more and more towards the covers, their materials, weight, thickness
with RocTool technologies, Ju Teng has not only developed an expertise on complex part designs that are removed directly from the mold, but also the finish which is essential to the touch and perceived quality. This is an unavoidable requirement in consumer electronics, to which we must answer!", said Li-Yu CHENG, Ju Teng International CEO.
RocTool and Ju Teng, a partnership that has only just begun
The Taiwanese group has invested more than $10 million (USD) in China, to construct a building that can house more than a hundred RocTool fitted production lines, as well as machines for cutting and finalizing of the parts. Ju Teng has developed significant production capacity in China and this partnership is targeting new markets for prestigious brands on their very high volume mass production programs.
To meet the demand of their Asian customers, RocTool has in turn, created a subsidiary in Taiwan and invested in a development center in Taichung equipped for rapid prototyping and technical customer support.
