Establishing in 1998, Chung Ho Cheng (CHC) Enterprise Co., Ltd. is equipped with the experience to develop professional tooling capabilities. As a hot, warm and combination forging factory, CHC offers wide-ranging services like heat treatment and surface treatment, all the while rolling out IATF16949-qualified products. The manufacturer is a major supplier of iron, aluminum and copper forged products for hot forged parts like automotive parts, scooter chassis parts, agricultural machinery parts, railway parts, defense parts, hardware tools, furniture and fire safety equipment. CHC is proficient in developing large-sized and unique, hybrid-typed parts and prioritizes offering innovative options for their clients through expanding their machinery fleet and optimizing management. For example, they have begun to incorporate German manufacturing process simulation software SIMUFACT into their systems, allowing them to improve and expand their tooling technology for more precise and faster production.

Chairman Lai Han-chung said his company is largely built upon tooling development, having manufactured over 3,000 sets since its inception. To meet clients' abundant demands, it took the firm nine times to expand their original 200-ping (661.157 square meters) factory to 10,500 ping (34710.744 square meters). The firm is able to offer small quantity but high variety products with its 11 production chains. CHC keeps a close eye on their production process: from the initial stages of raw materials to monitoring factory personnel on the production lines, as well as achieving talks with the world's sixth largest steel mill, Taiwan Steel, to receive a quota of 300 tons of steel each month, ensuring the firm's continual supply of steel materials and high quality products for clients. Also, CHC keeps 4,000 tons of raw materials in storage to meet varied production schedules. This enables them to meet their monthly production forging quota of 800 tons of steel and 300 tons of aluminum alloy.

Lai further pointed out that in the face of competitions in the globalized market, CHC has great flexibility in receiving orders since CHC has chosen in cooperation with peer groups instead of competing with each other. As the vice president of Taiwan Forging Association, he has the responsibility to gather and transform the forging industry capabilities into positive energy, maximize the value to share with peers, and establish a friendly environment and resource sharing.

CHC mainly focuses on manufacturing auto components, especially in suspension and steering system parts.

It had rolled out the supply of electric vehicle parts, receiving orders from Tesla. By continuous innovation and refinement, the firm has laid down plans to cross over into aerospace industrial products.

To streamline the production process, the firm also allows clients to provide product images, samples or 3D models of forging embryo designs or scanning samples to create 3D files, and design molds through CAM and CNC. Once the mold is finished, it will be moved forward to the production line to manufacture samples and sent through a three-dimensional measuring bed to clarify whether measurements meet clients' demands. If the orders are OEM parts, the firm would verify the orders through standardized procedures for operation, inspections, failure mode analysis and effects analysis and monitoring plans before mass production approval.

Lai mentioned SIMUFACT helps the firm analyze the process of metal usage in tooling production, from extrusion bar metal materials to completed forging products, as well as approval of entire production processes of raw material properties before forging. The streamlined process allows the firm to guarantee improvements to their cost management and utilization of raw materials, cutting back on preparation before production and eliminate any obstacles beforehand, and most importantly, to achieve on-time production and delivery.

With more than 30 years of experience in tooling design and a full understanding of the properties behind each raw material, it allows CHC to optimize the design of new products. As the team has a strong background in diverse product production and CAE application, the firm's R&D department can help clients design new auto parts and hand tools products from scratch by applying high-precision technology with high added value and provide the most cost-effective solutions to meet customer needs, creating a win-win situation. Currently, CHC serves buyers around the world, ranging from North America, Central and South America, Europe, Asia. CHC relentlessly pursues product innovation and refinement of forging technology, while strengthening the management of production equipment to ensure maximum production capacity.
