NKG developed Automated Guided Vehicles (AVGs) to handle its logistics and materials in all its facilities. This technology eliminates the need for human assistance, thereby making processes more efficient. AVGs transfer raw materials from warehouses to production and assembly lines, as well as transport finished products from production lines to its temporary storage facilities before shipment to customers.
Cal-Comp Technology (Philippines), Inc., the local arm of global tech conglomerate New Kinpo Group (NKG), is looking to bring artificial intelligence, robotics, and other cutting-edge technology to the Philippines.
These manufacturing technologies are intended to boost the capabilities of Filipino industries. According to NKG and Cal-Comp Technology CEO Simon Shen, the company can produce technologically advanced products through its state-of-the-art equipment and automation capabilities.
"Although we rely on almost 10,000 employees in the Philippines alone, we use automated equipment to help us speed up our manufacturing process. This is vital in keeping our customers satisfied with product quality and reaching our output targets," says Shen.
Cal-Comp Technology also has real-time monitoring capability. Their Virtual Factory System monitors the entire manufacturing process and inventory. It utilizes bar codes to trace raw materials and monitor quality, making it easy to detect defects in products and equipment. The system also provides engineers with automatic alerts, which allow them to address any potential production issues quickly.
For its production breakthroughs, Cal-Comp Technology, through NKG, has been recognized by different organizations for consistently upholding manufacturing standards in its facilities worldwide.
NKG has received the Taiwan National Quality Award, the highest honor for quality given. It was also awarded the Prime Minister Quality Award in Thailand.
To fund their expansion plans, Cal-Comp Technology is slated to have their initial public offering (IPO) in the local bourse later this year.
"In order for us to offer our own products to the Philippines, we will expand our footprint here and boost our production capacity. This will allow us to better serve Filipinos’ needs for new and advanced technology, given the country’s adeptness and affinity for electronic devices," Shen added.
