Bike machinery partners with Taiwanese machine maker
To cater for growing demand of fully automatic bicycle production equipment in Asia, Bike Machinery s.r.l. found a partner in Taiwan. Recently Bike Machinery signed a production, sales and service contract with Jui Chih Machinery Industrial Co., Ltd.
The license contract includes one specific type of machine only, the Proxima. Bike Machinery CEO Luigi Seghezzi explains “There is no manufacturer in Asia who can supply this kind of machinery. However, we see more and more production companies in Asia investing in fully automatic machinery and we decided to look for a local partner. Early September we signed a ten years-contract with Taichung-based bike machinery manufacturer Jui Chih.”
The Proxima is a fully automatic bicycle frame alignment machine. “We are the only manufacturer of this kind of equipment,” claims Seghezzi.
“The Proxima automatically aligns and checks the frame with a high level of precision. The tolerances can be adjusted up-to one millimeter which means the alignment can be done automatically and doesn’t require any labor.
