     for the opening speech, director he kunyao of nidec corporation was invited to present the topic "sustainability of the motor business and taiwan's opportunities." director he pointed out three ongoing trends for motor technology: low energy consumption, low vibration, and lightweight. taiwan had a great start in this field, but the industry had far too many participants to progress into the next step. from now on, industry participants should focus on conducting "fusion research" and forming an alliance with representatives from each part of the supply chain. in other words, we should offer product customization service on a mass-market scale, and perform activities such design, manufacturing, component integration, and modularization all within taiwan. in response to the uprise of chinese manufacturers, director he said that taiwan's advantage lies in its ability to design and collaborate with other industry participants, which is something that can be exploited for greater opportunities.

       for the next part of the conference, 4 presenters each introduced new materials of their respective companies. the first presenter, chief engineer zhou guangqiang from taya's magnet wire business group, introduced the audience to "motor efficiency enhancement with taya's new materials." to make products usable under challenging environment, taya has been developing enameled copper wires with new features such as anti-surge, magnet-conducting, thermal-dissipation, low-k, and corona resistance. apart from new innovations, taya has also developed copper clad aluminum wires for low cost and lightweight applications, and fully insulated zero defect wires that are even superior than triple insulation wire.

       next, dr. chen yanru from mirdc gave an introduction on "global r&d trend of neodymium-iron-boron magnet" and was followed by assistant vice president chen qinan from geor chi development, who presented "mf magnet in motor application." neodymium-iron-boron (ndfeb) has the strongest magnetic properties among all magnetic alloys, which is why neodymium-iron-boron magnet plays a crucial role in raising motor efficiency. dr. chen said that mirdc will be creating a trial production platform for magnetic materials and using it to develop high-performance ndfeb powder and explore advanced applications. meanwhile, assistant vice president chen explained the characteristics of 3rd generation mf powder and how it contributes to reducing motor size and improving motor efficiency.

       lastly, dr. lin shengyang from china steel corporation (csc) shared "csc's electromagnetic steel plate development plan and application case studies" with the audience. csc currently ranks 4th among the world in terms of electromagnetic steel plate production. approximately 250,000 tons of which were high-end products with energy-saving benefits. in the future, these products will be used mostly in applications such as electric vehicle that involve high-frequency, high-speed, endurance, lightweight, green energy, and energy efficiency. in particular, electric vehicles and drones will require large volumes of ultra-thin electromagnetic steel plates, and are expected to inspire an evolution of new production technologies.

       the day's discussion drew to a close when president wu jianyu from amit introduced the audience to "amit - the electromechanical design platform." president wu said that green motor, as compared to ordinary motor, should be "more energy efficient, use lesser material, and easier to produce." amit plays the role of an electromechanical design platform in this vision, and offers four main services, namely: cloud, subsystem design, testing and validation, and production technology. amit brings with it an innovative service model and the hope to utilize taiwan's proprietary motor materials to their fullest potential in the world's high-end market.
