While visiting the Taiwan Machine Tool Show (TMTS), which recently took place in Taichung, I received a tour of Hiwin’s booth. Taiwan headquartered Hiwin is a premier global manufacturer of motion control and systems technology. Its U.S. headquarters is in Elgin, Illinois.

In one of the larger booths at the show, Hiwan demonstrated the breadth of its involvement in actuation, robotics and medical applications. Some of the demonstrations were quite clever, catching my attention as well as the attention of many of the other 70,000 show attendees. Here's a short slideshow that illustrates some of the activities on display in the booth.
