The Shanghai Yin Science & Technology Company (Yin Group) is working on an ambitious plan to build the first ever 'smart factory' in Chinese garment industry. The smart factory would come up on 50,000 sq m area in China's Qingdao city. It will have integrated hardware and software and will use efficient processes to deliver values to end customer.
 
“Yin Group is currently working on a project to build smart factory on 50,000 sq m area in Qingdao city in China,” the Group's technical director Jinliang Xia told Fibre2Fashion.
 
In a smart factory, two elements—hardware and software—need to be integrated. “Yin Group is already in hardware, now we need to integrate software. We have already tied up with SAP and more alliances with software companies are expected soon,” said Xia.
 
Seamless process integration, control system from manufacturing to warehouse and beyond are basic parametres for an effective and efficient smart factory. 
 
“Outstanding growth of e-commerce will put pressure on manufacturers to build smart technology and efficient processes to deliver values to end customer,” he said. 
 
Founded in 2006, Yin Group is the number one digital equipment solutions provider for pre-sewing, sewing, and post-sewing clothing technology. The company is one of the few Chinese companies that have intellectual property rights of CNC cutting machines.
 
Currently, Yin Group has dozens of offices throughout China and also overseas subsidiaries in Japan and Germany. Its products have been exported to Japan, India, Brazil, the US, Germany, the UK and other countries.
 
The company has manufacturing units in Shanghai and in Jiangsu province. As an industry leader in CNC cutting equipment, Yin Group actively promotes the fusion of industrialisation and information, and promotes technological innovation and popularisation of automatic cutting technology. (RKS)
