Tackling with global economic crisis by KDIC

Quote from the chairman of KDIC, Jang Seok-ki​: "Currently, the Korean automotive die casting manufacturing market is facing a period of transition from traditional fuel vehicles to electric vehicles. Although the number of traditional die-casting parts has decreased, the demands of electric components have gradually expanded from the chassis, body, and other structural parts. It is required for a higher standard to the large-scale die-casting equipment.”

In response to the outbreak of COVID-19, the seminar reported that there are opportunities to drive the demands of large die casting machine to produce electric vehicle components. And they were promoting to launch smart factory which copes with the industry 4.0 of digitalization to remain competitive. With the benefits of engaging in create smart factories for the whole factory by combining these new technologies with its manufacturing know-how to connect the production process and the place of operations.

 

To expand the market of electric vehicle structural parts, there must be a strategic plan to ensure sustainable competitiveness on talent development. At this moment, the whole industry is eager for professional recruitment. Furthermore, they decided to cope with specialist education institutions to be in charge of that.
