“Made in Hong Kong” is seldom seen since the 90s, as most of the Hong
Kong factories have been moved to Mainland China. Have you ever imagined that
nowadays a welding process of pipes can be made locally?
O-Link Limited has set up a new Robotic Welding Process Factory in
Sheung Shui. It contains the works for ductile Pipe Flange welding for drinking
water, works for A/C water chiller pipe work by various advance machines like
11 Axis CNC robot Welding Machine, CNC Hydro Pressure Testing Machine, etc. All
members interested in manufacturing processes and advanced tooling are welcome
to join the visit.
This event is free of charge, prior
registration is required and applications will be accepted on a first-come
first-served basis. The number of participants is limited to 20. For
registration, please enroll online via https://forms.gle/LmMsp96eq1rA5NdB6 by 30 June 2019. Successful
applicants will be notified the assembly point and time for the visit by email
before 8 July 2019. For any queries, please contact Ms Candace Chan (Email: Candace.email@example.com) or
The Manufacturing & Industrial
Division organized a technical visit to O-Link Limited Factory at Sheung Shui on 13 July 2019. A
total of 25 members joined the half-day visit.
The Chairman of the Division, Ir Dr
Eric LIU commenced the visit with a heartfelt gratitude to Mr. Carlos Lee, the CEO of O-Matic Intelligent Robot Limited.
During the guided tour, the participants
gained an in-depth knowledge of the Ductile Pile Flange welding work and A/C
water chiller pipework carried out by the Factory. Mr. Carlos Lee delivered a detailed
presentation on the machine mechanism and the work processes. The participants
highly appreciated the innovative design of the processes with robotic
applications, which were mostly developed by Carlos. One of the high-technology
machines is the Numerical Control Band Saw which is able to cut high variety of
materials of round shape tubes with high precision. Operation of other machines
were also visualized, covering the CNC Lathe Machine with maximum turning 800 mm,
11 Axis CNC Robot Welding Machine with maximum material handling of 600 mm
diameter and 6000 mm length, and the CNC Hydro Pressure Testing Machine with
auto air bleeding. With lively work demonstration, participants were able to acquire
a deeper understanding of the manufacturing process and also the potential
business development of the pre-fabricated industry. After the tour, a
discussion session with Mr. Carlos Lee on the welding process of flange was
conducted which further explored the technical operation and machine
utilization, coupled with the quality of the welding treatment.
The visit was concluded with a group
photo. All participants treasured this informative and inspiring visit. On
behalf of the Division, we would like to express our sincere thanks to O-Link
Limited for making the visit a great success.
