Hyosung TNC, the textile and trading unit arm of Hyosung, is converting its spandex production bases into smart factories for Industry 4.0. It has set up smart factory systems in its spandex plants in Quzhou, Jiaxing, Guangdong and Zhuhai in China and Dong Nai in Vietnam. The systems are for process monitoring, quality control and smart Internet of Things.

They were installed under instructions from Hyosung Group chairman Hyun Joon Cho, who has pushed innovation in production and management ever since he took over as chairman last year.

Cho has emphasised that the way for Hyosung to stay number one in the world is to adapt to changes in the age of the fourth industrial revolution proactively through flexible and optimised production. To secure such production environment, he has stressed, Hyosung needed to fuse its proprietary technology with rapidly developing information and communication technology.

The next-generation production environment created by Hyosung TNC in the plants monitors processes and controls quality in real time to produce same-quality products no matter which plant they come from.

The systems collect and analyse data on the entire manufacturing process ranging from raw material import to production to shipment, and manages the process according to the results of data analysis. In this way, the efficiency of the plants has been maximised and their manufacturing competitiveness has been further raised.

“Turning into a smart factory is an essential step to take for manufacturers facing a huge, irresistible flow of the fourth industrial revolution,” Cho said. “On the basis of the smart factories, we will improve the quality of products and develop new technologies to a super-excellent level, and strengthen our presence as number one spandex maker in the world.”

Practical works to transform the plants into smart factories were led by Hyosung ITX, which kicked them off from the second half of last year.

Cho emphasised that other manufacturing units must adapt proactively to the fourth industrial revolution, too, by grafting information technology onto their existing technologies to create new markets. (SV)
